For those that know how to prepare this dish , join the conversation and for those that don’t; welcome to the conversation and this recipe is just for you…..
WHAT YOU WILL BE NEEDING (INGREDIENTS)
- 1 cup Milk.
- (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted.
- 2 spoons instant yeast.
- 1/3 cup warm water (95 to 105 degrees F).
- 2 eggs, beaten.
- 1/4 cup sugar.
- 1/2 teaspoons salt.
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting surface.
- vegetable oil, for frying (1 to 1/2 gallons)5 cups.
Place the milk in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat just until warm enough to melt the butter. Place the Butter in a bowl and pour warmed milk over. Set aside.
In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let dissolve for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, pour the yeast mixture into the large bowl of a stand mixer or a bowl to whisk with your hands.
In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and the egg.(make sure the milk is lukewarm )
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder,yeast and salt. Stir the milk-egg mixture into the dry ingredients.Add the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and half of the flour
then stir in the melted butter, mixing until a soft dough forms.Let the dough sit.
Transfer to a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
On a well-floured surface, roll out dough to 3/8-inch thick. Cut out dough using a 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter or a kitchen knife Set on floured baking sheet, cover lightly with a tea towel or a Napkin, and let rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oil in a deep fryer or Dutch oven to 365 degrees F.There should be at least 2 inches of oil in the pot and at least 2 inches between the top of the oil and the top of the pot.)
TO MAKE THE DOUGHNUT RING: take the cut out dough and with your finger maker a ring in the middle and expand and roll until you have a nice hole . You could also cut with a round, sharp doughnut cutter (about 3″ diameter).
Gently place the doughnuts into the oil, 3 to 4 at a time. Cook for 1 minute per side. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the doughnut holes to the paper towel-lined baking sheet.Serve immediately.
Alternatively, you could shape your doughnuts without the holes/rings…. it is entirely up to you.
Now thats how you make your doughnut.. go on and try it out Food Lovers and remember to share ….
If it looks anything like the photo in this post then well done…. and if it does not its the first of many trials… don’t give up…..try again…
- The dough expands when fried, so 1 tablespoon of batter will yield about a 2-inch doughnut hole. If you prefer smaller doughnut holes, drop about 1 teaspoon of batter into the oil.
- The roundness of the doughnut holes depends on how clean of a scoop of batter you drop into the hot oil.
