It's entering cold season now. So I thought sharing this classic doughnut recipe should suit the weather now. Of course with a cup of tea or maybe coffee. Your choice then :)
The ingredients:
  • 500g plain flour
  • 2 tablespoon or (6g) instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoon of shortening (I don't used in this session)
  • 50g unsalted butter/margarine
  • 2 tablespoon  sugar
  • 2 teaspoon condense milk/milk powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 small spoon salt
  • 200ml warm water(not so hot)
  • castor sugar or melting chocolate for topping (up to you)

  1. 1 Put the warm water- then pour into a big bowl. Add in yeast and then whisk. Follows by the 2 sugar, milk, margarine/unsalted butter and shortening (if you have it). Whisk all together to mix well then let it sit to raise and bubbles for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Once yeast bubbled up, sift half of the flour  into the mix. Also add the egg together.
  3. Mix well until it become a solid soft dough where it doesnt stick anywhere else. Depend on the size of the egg, if needed add 1-2 tbsp flour to stabilize the dough
  4. Add the rest of the sift flour. You can use bread maker to mix the ingredient. But I just use my hand.
  5. Put aside, cover with a kitchen towel or kitchen plastict wrap & let it rest for minimum 45 minutes and not more than 60 minutes to raise double
  6. Sift some flour on your kneading spot and soak your hand with some flour before taking out the dough.
  7. Take out the dough and roll to about 1 inch tick and cut with doughnut cutter or alt you can use any jar lid to cut them,(I use the small cup) into round shape and any smaller round plastict bottle to cut the centre hole
  8. Let it sit again for at least 15 minutes / max 20 minutes to raised double again or when you lift them, they are more fluffy and lighter
  9. Preheat cooking oil in a generous size pan.  adjust to the  heat later when frying your raw donut so it cooked evenly out and inside until they become golden brownish
  10.  When it become golden brownish, remove from the oiled pan into a strainer
  11. Let it dry down some oil and then dip or sprinkle a fine sugar and its ready to be served
  12. You can use chocolate and sprinkle too on top
Waiting for the yeast to bubble

Then add the flour.

This dough after rested for about 30 minutes.

Cut the dough into small circle using small cup (you can use doughnut cutter if you have one)

Please excuse the look as this is done with my little chef :)

Fry the doughnut!

Ready to eat! :)
