These yeast doughnuts came out very nice and makes for a great sight on the dining table when the kids get back home! 🙂 Got the recipe from a website while randomly surfing and comparing recipes.
3/4 cup – scalded milk
1/3 cup – sugar
1/4 tsp – salt
Mix the three together and leave to get tepid in temperature.
2 tsp – instant yeast
1/4 cup – warm water
Soak the yeast with a sprinkle of sugar in the warm water and leave to prove.
4 cups – flour
1/3 cup – melted butter
2 – eggs, beaten
Mix 2 cups of flour to the milk mixture. Add the yeast, butter and eggs. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time to make a smooth dough. Leave to rise in a greased bowl for about 1 hour till doubled in volume.
Cut out shapes and place on a greased baking tray with room for expansion between the doughnuts. Leave to rise for 30 min.
Deep fry in hot oil and add glaze of icing sugar + cold water + vanilla essence or melted chocolate and/or icing sugar
