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 most recently have some time, I had been looking on the web the other day. Looking to find new, stirring thoughts, inspirational meals that I’ve never tasted before, to delight my family with. Searching for a while yet couldn’t find any interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I found this delightful and simple treat by chance. The dessert looked so delightful on its pic, that required urgent actions.

It had been simple enough to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and how much boyfriend might enjoy it. Actually, it is very easy to impress him when it comes to treats. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I went to the website: Suncakemom and simply followed the simple instuctions that were combined with wonderful images of the task. It just makes life less difficult. I could imagine that it is a bit of a hassle to take pics in the midst of baking in the kitchen because you will often have sticky hands thus i really appreciate the commitment she put in for making this post and recipe easily implemented.

Having said that I am encouraged to present my own formulas in a similar fashion. Thanks for the concept.

I was tweaking the main formula create it for the taste of my family. Need to say it turned out an awesome success. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and enjoyed getting a treat such as this in the middle of a stressful workweek. They basically asked for lots more, more and more. So the next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m likely to multiply the quantity .

This healthy donuts recipe deep fried is from SunCakeMom.

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.
