There are a lot of baked goodies that son1 would request from time to time. I could easily make almost all of them except for doughnuts…I found this recipe from youtube but I changed it a slightly. My dilemma was    I deep fried it instead of baking so maybe it was not a good idea after all. The next time my son requests for donuts, I’ll bake this.

Ingredients:

1 egg
3/4 cup castor sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup of milk
50g melted butter

2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder

Glaze:

chocolate bars
white chocolate bars

1. In a bowl beat eggs using a hand mixer. Put in castor sugar, vanilla extract, milk and melted butter. Mix well.

2. Fold in flour and baking powder into the egg mixture and mix again, when it gets tough to mix, use a wooden spatula. Let the dough sit in half an hour or so.

3. Heat up oil for deep frying.

4. Flour surface (table or countertop) and flatten dough…not so thick so that they cook easily.

5. Shape your doughnuts, I use a small glass to shape the doughnut and I make use of a piping tip for the small hole.

6. When oil is hot enough, drop dough one by one, just when there’s enough space for them. Flip after 30-40 seconds using a wooden stick. If you think that they aren’t cooked through leave for some seconds more.

7. Let oil drip, leave doughnuts on cooling rack.

To make glaze:

I make glaze out of laziness; simply melt the chocolates and dip the dough one by one. You can add color to the white chocolate too, I made use of matcha powder for it. Decorate with assorted candy sprinkles. Serve.
