Today I am sharing with you this doughnut recipe that I tried the other day (just to throw away all your new years resolutions), Hope you enjoy.
Note: This recipe takes about a whole day to make so I would suggest to read the recipe before going and making (like what I did ) the original recipe comes from here I halved the original recipe and it made 7 doughnuts. I really would recommend making them because I think the wait is worth it, they tasted amazing.
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 ¾ cups plain flour
- 2 table spoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ packet dried yeast
- Oil for frying
- Sugar for coating the doughnuts
First place your 1/3 cup milk into a saucepan and heat until it bubbles at the edges
Then set aside to cool until it reaches around 50ºc then add in your egg and your egg yolk
In a bowl combine your 1 ¾ cups plain flour, 2 table spoon sugar, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ packet dried yeast .
Then add in your milk and egg mixture and using dough beaters beat on a low speed for about 4 minutes or you can do it by hand and mix for about 8 minutes.
then once it is combined using your hands mix in the butter pieces at a time until it is completely combined
Now cover with some plastic and place in your refrigerator for 3 – 12 hours
After you have waited remove the dough from the bowl and roll onto a floured surface using a rolling pin. using circle shaped cutters cut out your doughnuts and place onto a lined tray.
Then place glad wrap over your doughnuts and place in a warm spot for 30 minutes – 2 hours, until they begin to rise.
I left mine out for around 10 hours and they rose a lot.
This is fore the chocolate filling if you want to. Place half parts cream to half parts chocolate into a saucepan.
Combine over a very low heat and continuously stir until it all comes into one.
Now is the part we see it all come together. Fill a pot/pan with oil, just enough so the doughnut would be off the bottom. Place the oil over the stove and wait for it to heat up (be careful because the oil is hot and will burn you). to see if the oil is hot enough place a small ball of dough into it and if it floats and sizzles it is ready. Using tongues place one doughnut at a time into the pan flipping it over when it becomes golden brown. Have a plate ready with paper towel fir when the doughnut is ready.
Once you have patted all the oil off the doughnut place it into some sugar to coat it.
Then with the end of a spoon make a hole in your doughnut and using your chocolate ganache and a piping bag pipe it into the hole.Then your done.
I really hope you enjoy this as much as I did eating them, if you do try the recipe please let me know by tagging me in your photos on Instagram @awhiterabbitblog and use the hashtag #awhiterabbitblogcreation
