Healthy donuts

Donuts are so common nowadays that we don’t even think that it could be done in the warmth of our homes. This is a huge mistake to make though.

As I currently have some time, I had been browsing on the web a few days ago. In need of new, stirring ideas, inspirational dishes that We have never tried before, to surprise my family with. Looking for a long time but could not discover lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this tempting and easy dessert by chance. The dessert looked so tempting

on its image, that called for instant actions.

It was easy to imagine just how it’s created, its taste and how much my husband will probably enjoy it. Actually, it is rather easy to keep happy the guy when it comes to treats. Anyway, I got into the webpage: Suncakemom and simply followed the simple instuctions that had been coupled with superb photos of the process. It really makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to take photos in the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you typically have sticky hands and so i highly appreciate the commitment she placed in to make this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

Having said that I am inspired presenting my own dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the thought.

I had been fine tuning the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you it turned out an awesome success. They enjoyed the flavour, the consistency and loved having a sweet like this in the middle of a stressful week. They quite simply wanted lots more, more and more. So the next occasion I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I am likely to twin the quantity to get them pleased.

This was made possible through SunCakeMom who provided the original Healthy donuts recipe.

Add yeast to half of the lukewarm milk or water and stir it well. Allow it to sit for five minutes. If it starts to bubble don’t worry it’s only the yeast working and it’s completely normal.

Separate egg whites from yolks.

Beat egg whites until hard peaks form.

Put flour, egg yolks, butter and the rest of the milk into a big bowl. Pour in the milk and yeast mixture too. Knead until the dough comes together. We are after a fairly soft dough so don’t worry if it sticks to the wall of the bowl here and there.

Add the egg whites into the dough too then place the dough in a lightly floured bowl, cover and leave it in a warm place for half an hour to rise.

Turn out the dough on to a floured surface

Roll it out to about 1 finger thick.

Use a donuts cutter or a cup to cut out our special homemade doughnuts.

Transfer them to a lightly-floured, flat surface that is in a draft-free, warm spot. Cover the donuts lightly with tea towels and leave them rise for another half an hour.

Fill frying pan with oil and heat until sizzles. Be patient and don’t try to put doughnut into the oil before it’s not hot enough. Also if the oil is too hot the dough won’t rise as much as it could and we end up with much denser results. We have to test the kitchen for this but if we have six temperature settings on the cooker then starting on the third is a great start. Try the oil by dropping a little leftover dough in there. If it sizzles and rises immediately to the surface, the oil is ready.

Carefully place donuts upside down into the frying pan. Use a spatula to pick up the dough to avoid any sticking to the kitchen counter.

Put the lid on top! They should float to the top and puff up.

After about a minute check the bottom for golden brown color. If it’s done flip them over to the other side and don’t put the lid back.

Remove them from the oil as soon as they’re golden brown on both sides.

Place donuts on paper kitchen-towels to cool and drain. If we can see the whitish stripe in the middle then we have a nice and fluffy donuts. No stripes no fluffiness.
