Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe with step by step instructions!
I don’t think so we need to know what is Doughnut?? we must have eaten atleast once in our lifetime. Traditionally it’s a fried pastry and baked in modern days. Mostly it’s in a ring shape with a hole however it’s made in round shaped, stuffed doughnuts etc. They are also known as Donuts, Fasnacht, Fosnaught, Paczki and also Kinklings. You would be surprised to see the various kinds of doughnuts made these days.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

My personal favorite is chocolate doughnut. Today I have made a traditional doughnut which is deep fried. Such deep fried doughnuts are quite often made in Goa during Christmas and also all in other parts of the world. Now doughnuts are made with yeast, without yeast, with eggs, without eggs etc. I have made with eggs.

Every single day I am making Christmas desserts and not eating much of sweets. As even sweets kind of bore you after some point of time. So I also indulge in savories. I would be coming up with more authentic Goan Christmas sweets. I can already feel Christmas around with the decoration sold, the church decorated and the winter chills are making me nostalgic. Also I am happy to see my blog and name featured again On DNA last Sunday 8th Dec 2013 here is the link to it http://www.dnaindia.com/lifestyle/report-eat-your-fill-to-beat-the-chill-1931566

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Coming back to doughnuts :) I have further frosted my doughnuts with dark chocolate and white chocolates. You could just sprinkle some cinnamon powder and caster sugar if you don’t like frosting. This Homemade Doughnut Recipe is easy to make and once you make you will keep making them. You could experiment with your doughnut dough by adding nuts, raisins, candied peels etc use your creativity let it flow.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

The softer your doughnut dough the better your doughnut would be. Once you knead the dough allow to stand for 20 mins and place it in the freezer for 10 mins. I didn’t do this as Pune is as chilled as a fridge right now. So I just allowed to rest my dough for 15 mins. I love to have my doughnuts with hot chocolate drizzle and some hot chocolate milk because I am a die hard chocolate fan :)

Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Place it aside.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Add butter and rub the butter and flour together with the help of your palm. It should look like bread crumbs.

Make a small well in the sifted flour add egg, milk, baking soda, vanilla essence and the powdered spices.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Combine all and knead into a soft and smooth dough. If it’s too dry add little milk preferably the dough should be slightly sticky.

It should be super soft.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Allow the dough to stand for twenty mins and place into the freezer for five mins. Please don’t keep for a longer time else it will freeze. Make 3 big balls and roll each ball with the roller. The width should be around 1/2 inch.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Cut doughnuts with the doughnut cutter. If you don’t have a cutter it’s okay make small balls Or cut with the help of a glass. Take a lid of small bottle and cut from the center. Your doughnuts would be shaped without a cutter.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Repeat the same with the rest of dough and with leftover dough make round balls and fry.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

Place a deep vessel with oil on high heat. Once oil is very hot reduce to medium temperature. Gently fry the doughnuts from both sides until golden brown. Fry only 2 or 3 at a time don’t cluster with too many else they might break.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

You would see they rise as they fry. Remove them with the help of slotted spoon. Place them on absorbent napkins. Allow to cool. Now you could sprinkle some cinnamon powder and caster sugar Or make frosting.

Homemade Doughnut Recipe

I don’t have pics for the frosting steps. Just melt both white chocolate and dark chocolate on a double boiler. Now dip the doughnuts gently over the melted chocolates from both sides. Place them over a greased pan sprinkle the candies Or sprinklers over them while chocolate is still warm. Allow the doughnuts to cool down and serve them warm Or chilled.
