Finally, I'm posting one of my favourite recipe after waiting for like ages. Doughnuts are my most favourite and I love to have them anytime of the day. This is a very simple and easy recipe which can be made easily by the beginners also. I have tried this recipe like a hundred times and everytime I got the best doughnuts...
1+1/4 cup of all purpose flour, plus a bit more for dough
1/4+1/8cup Luke warm water or milk (115c)
1/4cup melted butter
1tsp vanilla essence
Oil for deep frying.
Ingredient's For The Glaze.
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Milk, as needed (about a 2tsp of milk)
In a small bowl, combine the warm milk and 1tsp sugar, sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
In the bowl mix the egg, milk, sugar, vanilla, melted butter and sugar. Mix till the sugar is dissolve. Then add flour, yeast water and mix. Knead the dough for 5 to 7 minutes or until you have a smooth dough. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise for about 2 hours.
When the dough is doubled in size, punch the dough down and roll it out onto a floured surface into 1/2 inch thickness. Using a doughnut cutter, cut out the doughnuts and place them on a counter top and cover them with a kitchen towel and allow them to raise for another 15 to 20 minutes. In a mean time heat a oil in a deep frying pan, once the oil is hot lower the heat.
Now fry the doughnuts to golden brown on a medium flame. Then allow the doughnuts to cool completely before icing.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the icing sugar, vanilla essence and milk. mix everything until you get a consistency runny enough to dip the doughnut in.
Take the completely cooled doughnuts and dip into a glaze and place them on the cooling rack to set.
You can glaze as you like and decorate the doughnuts as your wish.
