Doughnut

Doughnut is a snack much loved by kids and adults alike. There are mainly two variations to preparing this. One being the yeast based doughnut and the other known as cake doughnut. I prefer the latter as it is less time consuming than the yeast based doughnut. I got the recipe from All recipes.

This is one of D’s favourite snack. Sometimes it’s so cute to hear him complain that I haven’t made them in a while. Let me clarify..the “while” here means a month at the most.. 🙂 Moving on to the recipe.

  • Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Take out the dough from the refrigerator and turn out into a generously floured surface.
  • Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough.The dough maybe a little sticky, do not worry, dust with more flour.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into 1/2" thickness.
  • Cut into desired shape using a doughnut cutter.
  • If you don't have a doughut cutter, you can use sharp edged bottle caps.
  • Use the bigger cap first and then cut out a hole in the centre using a smaller cap.
  • You can either add the centre portion back into the dough or fry them up.
  • Fry the doughnut in hot oil till they turn golden brown.
  • Dust with caster sugar or you can decorate with any glaze of your choice.
