These donuts are perfection. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!

On the third time of making these donuts............ its finally blog worthy!
The taste was good on the first try but....either the shape was wrong..........or the glaze went wrong etc!
Last time I used chocolate chips and then realized they tasted good but it won't harden. So this time around I used baking chocolate, which harden at room temperature.

These donuts were so soft, moist and spongy. I've just dunked the donuts in melted chocolate. Easy, tasty and fast.
The kids Everyone loved these............. and serves as a good weekend treat.

The recipe makes about 14 donuts.
warm milk - 3/4 cup
instant yeast - 2 and 1/4 tsp
sugar - 3 tbsps
salt - 3/4 tsp
egg - 1
all purpose flour - 2 and 3/4 cup
unsalted butter, softened - 3 tbsps
oil for frying
cookie cutters- I used a 3 and 1/4 inch diameter for the outer ring
                       and 1 inch diameter for the inner hole

for the topping:
300g of your preferred cooking chocolate


  • In the bowl of your stand mixer or in any large bowl add the instant yeast and sugar.
  • Add in the warm milk.
  • Next, add in the salt and egg and give it a quick whisk with a fork.
  • Add in the flour and mix with the mixer on low speed.
  • Once it has all come together (the dough will be wet and sticky) add in the butter. 
  • Mix on low to medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. You will notice the dough will still be wet but not sticky.
  • At this point you can stop mixing and tuck the uneven ends of the dough at the bottom so that the top of the dough is neat. Cover and keep in a warm place, to rise for 75 to 90 minutes or till the dough has doubled in size.
  • Line a big tray with parchment paper to place the cut out donuts.  
  • Lightly flour your work surface and place your dough on it. Deflate the dough by gently pressing down on it with your palm.
  • Roll out the dough with a thickness of 1/4 inch.
  • Using the cookie/ donut cutter, cut out your donuts and place them on the baking tray. You will roughly get about 14 donuts. Loosely cover them with cling wrap and place them in a warm corner in your kitchen for the second rise.... about 30 minutes or till they have doubled in size.
  • Heat oil for frying the donuts. 
  • When you drop a tiny bit of dough in the hot oil, it must come up immediately. Then, the oil is ready.
  • Drop the donuts in the hot oil without crowding the wok. Fry them on low flame till lightly browned. Flip them over and fry them further till the favoured brown colour is attained.
  • Drain them on a paper towel.
  • Next, heat up the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl till melted. Give it a good mix. Microwave in intervals of 20 seconds remembering to mix in between . 
  • While the donuts are slightly warm, dunk them in the melted chocolate and arrange them on a tray and wait for the glaze to harden.
