Mad Over Doughnut —

A doughnut is a type of fried dough confectionery dessert  food.  This type of dessert or sweet snack is favourite in many countries —20170503_125722

These are typically ring-shaped, with or without a hole,  glazed with various types of toppings like sugar , chocolate and maple syrup.

I have made three types of ring doughnuts today — cinnamon ,chocolate and sugar with edible yellow colour glaze.

Method :

In a medium bowl, combine yeast and warm milk and stir to dissolve the yeast , keep it aside for 15 min or until frothy .

After 15 mins , take another large bowl , mix in the flour, yeast, egg, milk , vanilla, salt and castor sugar  and incorporate all the ingredients and make a dough .  cover it with a cling film and rest it in a warm place fo 2 to 3 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.20170503_100846 (1)

On  a floured work surface ,knead  the dough again for 15 min  and again keep it aside in a buttered bowl for 30 min. With a rolling-pin gently roll out to 1/2 inch thickness then cut with a floured doughnut cutter . Let the doughnut sit for another 15 mins in order to rise again.20170503_130634

Heat oil in a deep fryer and slide the ring doughnut two at a time. Turn the dough as they rise into surface. Fry each doughnut on both sides until brown. Keep them on a wire rack  in order to drain off the excess oil.20170503_130423
