My First Donuts

Donuts have always been one of my weakness
Tried a few times but could never get the perfect texture and shape it's supposed to be
So it's in fact been a long time I just went to bakeries and bought them

But my kids love donuts
Even though I can't beat the bakeries varieties and perhaps taste, at least if I can make my own, I feel better knowing it's homemade
So, I decided to give it another try

This time I used Mamafami's recipe and I was so glad that it's a success
It's not prefect shape as yet, but texture wise, I was very satisfied
Now, this makes me eager to try other doughnuts recipes :)

I made some in little balls shapes too :)

The texture is soft even til the next day, it's a keeper! :)

What you need:

500g bread flour
100g sugar
11g instant yeast
4 egg yolks
200ml water
1 tsp salt
100g butter / margarine

enough oil to deep fry the donuts
  1. Stir ingredients A, knead until lumpy, add ingredients B, continue to knead until smooth elastic
  2. Rest dough for 10 minutes
  3. Roll to about 1 cm thick and cut using a donut cutter. Arrange the donut rings on a floured tray. Let it sit for another 20 - 30 minutes (depends on the weather), then fry till golden brown, let cool
  4. Spread a little butter on each doughnut with brush and sprinkle chocolate rice and cheese, or whatever topping you like
  5. Those using icing sugar, no butter needed, you may roll them in the sugar til evenly coated
