Powdered Sugar Donuts

Powdered Sugar Donuts is something that reminds me of my childhood. My mom use to take home a box of these goodies from either DUNKIN DONUTS or MISTER DONUTS. That just made my day! I forget how long and boring I waited for my MOM to get back home, it all ease away with a bite of these super-doopah yummy Donuts!

Since today is Mother’s Day weekends, we’ll make something nice for our hard-working MOMs…

Now on with the frying…

Powdered Sugar Donuts

Prep. time: 2 hours

Frying time: 2 minutes

Deep Fryer Temp. : 180’C

Difficulty: Easy

Makes; 20 pcs. Donuts & 2o pcs. Donutholes

Good for 12 crew

You will need;

500 grms. all purpose flour/plain flour

1 Tbsp. instant yeast

1/4 Tbsp. (3/4 tsp.) fine salt

6 Tbsp. sugar white granulated

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened {kept at room temperature for an hour or softened inside the microwave for few seconds.}

2 pcs. med. size (50grms/each) fresh eggs

3/4 cup water, room temperature{a little more or less}

*For frying:

Deep Fryer w/ built in thermostat.{or a deep pan w/ candy thermometer}

a lot of clean/clear vegetable oil{amount will defend on the size of your deep pan}

*For the topping:

1 cup powdered sugar {confectioner’s/icing sugar}

 

Direction;

Place flour, yeast, salt and sugar in the dough mixer, run on slow speed for a minute to blend ingredients. Add the softened butter, eggs and water. Increase speed to medium-high and knead the mixture for 10-12 minutes or until smooth and elastic. A good mixture will have blisters on the dough surface.

Either brush the bowl or rub the dough surface with vegetable oil and place it  back into the bowl, cover with plastic film wrap or a damp cloth and let it rise for 1-2 hours or until double in bulk. Punch down dough.
[Here’s how I do it] *Sweet Dough Recipe on the link is double in amount.

Prepare large tray and cover it with flour. Place sweet dough on a floured working table, use rolling pin to flatten dough. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness {or slightly thicker than a pencil/pen}. Use donut cutter to cut-out dough. Do not discard leftover/scrap dough from cut-out donuts, combine and repeat procedure to cut more donuts from it. Transfer donuts to the floured tray and let the donuts proof at warm area {32-38’C}. Let the donuts rise for 30-60minutes.

Preheat oil on deep fryer to 180’C and test fry a donutholes, it should be golden brown on one side in less than a minute. Turnover to cook other side. Fry the remaining donuts in batches, use bamboo skewer/chop stick to handle donuts while frying. Donutholes cooks faster than donuts, fry them separately. Drain excess oil on kitchen paper towels. Arrange donuts/donutholes on tray, springkle with powdered sugar.

Tips: Place powdered sugar on fine sieve, generously shake sieve on top of donuts to evenly coat it with sugar.

Serve and enjoy it with your favourite blend of coffee !!!
