Traditional donuts.
« on: June 12, 2017, 06:13:30 am »
I love having Grandchildren to stay as they request things that I wouldn't dream of cooking. It is 30 years that I last made donuts. Max is tall and skinny so I don't think they will do him a great deal of harm.
I have adapted the recipe from Justin Gellatly 's recipe.
This 1/2 recipe made 20 small ones.

Ingredients
250g bakers flour, I used Lauke soft white mix
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons of dried yeast
2 eggs
75 g water
65 g butter, softened.

3 cups of rice bran oil.

Method
Place all ingredients in TMX bowl, EXCEPT butter
Knead for 3 minutes.
Cut butter into 4 cubes
Knead for a further 2 minutes adding a cube of butter each 30 seconds.
Remove from bowl and place in a warm spot, covered, until doubled. Mine took 2 hours.

When doubled, using wet hands, form into  teaspoon size small blobs.
Heat oil to 180 degrees C. In a saucepan. The oil should come 1/2 way up saucepan.
Drop 3 or 4 dough balls into hot oil. Turning as they brown.
Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
When drained but still hot roll in cinnamon sugar or squirt some Rasperry jam into the centre.

Try not to eat too many!!

How delicious on a Coolish day. I'm sure Max gobbled them up.

I bet they devoured them Chookie.  It's handy having the GKs there giving you ideas, of course you will always be up for the challenge.

I reheated these in the Air Fryer. I am afraid that they were delicious. We all helped the kids eat them. Jilly squirted jam into them and Max rolled them in the Cinnamon sugar. For a treat these were very nice but won't be making them too often.
Next time I make them, I will flatten out the dough and cut circles with a very small round cutter.

They look so very deliciously tempting ... so hard to resist.
