We have always liked donuts(or doughnuts). Finally we managed to muster up enough guts to try it and say what, it came out really nice. Fluffy, soft and beautiful looking. No, we are not talking about a newborn, it is about a donut.
flour - 2 cups
sugar - 3/4 cup
unsalted butter softened - 5 tbsp
egg yolks - 3 (added 2 whole eggs and still turned out fine)
yeast instant - 2 tsps
warm milk - 1 cup or little less
- Add all the ingredients together. Sift the dry ingredients together to avoid lumps.
- Kneed the dough for sometime and leave it aside in a greased bowl till it becomes twice in size.
- After that punch out the excess air and roll them into 1/4 inch thickness. and using a cookie cutter and bottle cap(or anything), cut them in the shape of doughnuts.
- Take the excess dough and repeat.
- Let them rise again for another hour or two in a warm place. One hour is enough though.
- Heat oil and fry the donuts on each side for a few minutes to make sure it cooks evenly.
- Glaze with things you like - chocolate, or plain glaze or sprinkle plain cinnamon sugar.
