Melt in your mouth Doughnuts

My little one is a crazy fan of doughnuts. Our Apartment complex was having a small fair for Durga Puja and there was this do-nut guy whom my son gave continous business for those 4-5 days. Once the fair was over my son decided it was best to get mamma to make it for him.

I was flabbergasted. I have never made them. No clue about how to make them. Non-baking recipes is not my forte as you know! But this request had to be met :)

So I set out and googled, got some good recipes and made them. They were liked both by my hubby and my son alike!! So I want to share this simple recipe for making doughnuts.

You will need:

  • Warm water - 1/4cup

  • Yeast - 2 1/4 tsp (1 packet)

  • Warm milk - 1/2-3/4 Cup

  • Butter - 2 tbsp

  • Sugar - 2 tbsp

  • Egg - 1

  • Wheat flour - 2-3 cups

  • Oil for Deep frying

    1. For the glaze:

    2. Powdered Sugar - 1 cup

    3. Water - 3 tbsp

    4. Butter - 2tbsp

    5. Vanilla - 2 drops

    6. Method:

    7. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Set aside till froths.

    8. Now take the milk and add the sugar, butter and mix well.

    9. Add the egg and mix again.

    10. Now add the Wheat Flour slowly little at a time and keep mixing.

    11. If the batter is a little watery you may add some more wheat flour.

    12. Once the batter is ready let it rest in a warm place covered with a muslin cloth in a well oiled bowl.

    13. After an hour take this out and knead for a couple of minutes and using a rolling pin make a round circle of the dough. You may need to use dry flour generously before rolling in order to avoid the dough from sticking.

    14. Using a Coffee mug and a small bottle cap shape the dough in to D0ughnuts.

    15. Let them rest for another 45 minutes or so in a flat plate till they are well risen.

    16. Prepare the glaze by dissolving the sugar, water, vanilla and butter in a bowl.

    17. Now fry these in oil on medium heat, in a pan with say 2" of oil till golden brown. Drain and keep aside.

    18. Now dip one side of the doughnut into the glaze and keep aside for the glaze to set.

    19. Enjoy your doughnut with milk, coffee or tea!!
