First of all, we are very sorry for the delay. We both were busy with our semester exams and internals.
So here we are with a little treat for you… Doughnuts…!! 😀
This recipe was given to me by my friend… after a lot of begging and pleading…!! 😉 But it was all worth it. The doughnuts turn out really soft and taste delicious. And since we are chocoholics, we dipped them in loads of chocolate ganache.
Hope they satisfy your sweet tooth… 😉
- 250 gm…. Refined flour/ Maida
- 7 gm…. Active dry yeast
- 5 gm…. Salt
- 50 gm…. Sugar
- 1 tbsp… Flex seeds + 3 tbsp… Water (1 egg)
- 50 ml…. Water
- 70 ml…. Milk
- 15 gm…. Butter (softened)
- Oil…. for frying
- Chocolate (dark and white)…. for ganache
Take milk and water together in a vessel and heat it till they are lukewarm (around 45⁰ C). Stir sugar in this lukewarm warm mixture until it completely dissolves. Crush 1 tbsp of flex seeds and add 3 tbsp of water to them and keep aside. Bring together all the dry ingredients i.e. flour, salt, dry yeast and mix them roughly.
Add the milk-water-sugar mix and strain the flex seed mix into the dry ingredients. If you wish to use egg, add one medium sized egg, whisked, instead of the flex seeds mixture. Knead until soft dough is formed. The dough may be a little sticky, so no need to worry. Let this dough rest for 30 minutes in a warm place covered in a tea towel. After 30 minutes knock down the dough and let it rest for another 30 minutes, in a warm place, covered.
Then knead the dough and dust some flour onto the counter and roll the dough into a sheet of about 1cm thickness. Cut into the doughnut shapes and let these rest for another 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan and when it comes to the adequate temperature, lower the heat. Fry the doughnuts on a low heat, until golden-brown.
You can decorate by dipping them into a simple chocolate ganache. You can also toss these hot doughnuts into a mixture of caster sugar and cinnamon. Melted white chocolate sauce can be drizzled over.
- You can also make small balls out of this dough to make bite sized doughnuts for parties.
- You can also drizzle honey or maple syrup over these doughnuts.
