Cinnamon sugar donuts

Cinnamon sugar donuts

I've made vanilla custard doughnuts before but I've never made plain donuts, unbelievable! First try was an epic fail but second try was a big hit. These beauties get rolled into cinnamon sugar and are so so addictive. It's quite easy to make. I just hate frying things for some reason so I tend to avoid these recipes.

After last week's fried Wiener schnitzel, here come donyts. Looks like I'm seriously getting into frying, haha. Maybe next time I'll glaze them? We shall see! I hope you'll love them and if you make them, please send me pictures on Instagram!

Cinnamon sugar donuts (12-15 pieces) :

  • 290g flour
  • 5g dried yeast
  • 28g white sugar
  • 60ml lukewarm water
  • 90ml lukewarm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 60ml salted butter (melted)

For the cinnamon sugar :

  • 50g sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

In a big bowl, mix yeast, lukewarm water and water. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

Add (cooled down) melted butter, milk and egg. Mix with a wooden spoon.

Add flour a little bit at a time, mixing with a wooden spoon. When the dough starts shaping up, transfer to a working surface and knead it for 10 minutes.

Don't add all the flour if your dough is smooth and not too sticky.

Let the dough rest in a clean bowl for 1 hour to 1 hour and a half. It must double in size.

Roll the dough until it's 1cm thick. With a cookie cutter, cut circles and with a tiny cookie cutter, cut tiny holes. Don't throw them, fry them too they're delicious.

Heat 5cm of oil tp 180°C/375°F, fry the donuts 2-3 minutes on each side.

Transfer onto a grid or paper towel.

Prep the cinnamon sugar by mixing in a shallow plate the sugar and cinnamon.

When the donuts are cooled enough to handle, roll them into cinnamon sugar.
