DONUT (Chef Li)

Hello everyone! I am finally back at my page. Hadn't had time to update since last Friday. I was really really busy from Friday right up till yesterday. But all the effort is worthwhile, no complaints and I am indeed very happy. I think I've mentioned it in my previous entries that I am joining the group that's putting up a stall at St Andrew's High School during the Swimming Competition by Malawi Aquatic Association. Actually the stall was supposed to be on Saturday and Sunday, but they've changed it to Sunday and Monday as Monday is a public holiday in Malawi. Am I glad that happened. At least I have more time. To make things worst, last week wasn't my week actually. I don't really know what's wrong with me, it's like everything is just not right. Hate being in that kind of situation. But alhamdulillah I managed to snap out of it before it's too late!

On Saturday, I started in the kitchen from 11 am right up till midnight. I made 96 pieces of mini pizzas with just sweet corn as the topping, baked 24 Apple Muffins and made Donuts, a new recipe that I'll paste shortly. The pizzas, since I had to make a lot, I just don't want to abuse my mixer. So I bought 3 kgs of pizza dough from the bakery and when I reached home, I just have to punch it down (it really bloated in the car! Hahaha...), roll it, cut, put the topping and let it rise again. The kids helped me with the pizzas and I am very thankful to them for giving me a helping hand or otherwise it'll take me double the time which I don't really have that day! While the pizzas were baking in the oven, I knead the donuts dough. And while waiting for that to prove, I prepared the muffin mixture. You see, my oven has only 1 rack, so it really takes time to bake a lot at one go. Anyway, if you're organised, you will be able to cope nicely. Thank God I was that day! Hahaha! By the time the muffins baking, I did the donuts cutting and let it proved once more. When the donuts were ready, I put everything on the mat plus the cupcakes that I've taken out from the freezer earlier on. Now it's 'playing' time! Had to sit on the mat as I was just too tired standing for hours and hours! First, I coat the donuts and then I iced the cuppies. After everything's done, then it's packing time. I packed muffins and the donuts in small packets in order to keep it clean and soft and makes it easier to sell and I think, it looks more presentable, don't you think so? Slept at 12.15 midnight. Here are the photos of what I sold last Sunday!

Sunday morning, was up by 4am. Heat all the pizzas, let it cool slightly and packed them. Was at St Andrew's High School by the pool before 10am. Our table was nicely laid out. Fowzia brought 100 packets of caramel popcorns (2 packets for 50 kwaca) and mini pizzas at 50 kwaca each. Her pizzas were of bun base and mine was of dough base. By the way, my muffins, cuppies and pizzas are at 50 kwaca each as well. And Shoba brought in Vegetable Samoosas (2 for 50 kwaca), cuppies and Bhajjias (50 kwaca for a handful). Ian and Maxine Lockington were doing the meat stall, selling chicken pita, burgers and fillet steaks. Sorry I didn't snap any photos at school. ALL our food were finished before 5pm! All the hard work paid off really well. And oh, Fatin and Deepti (Shoba's daughter) were incharge of the coffee and tea stall and they were very happy to make money as well! I must pay Fatin her 'wages'. Reached home by 6pm. Prayed my namaaz and made my Zohor qada' and off to the kitchen again to prepare for Monday's sale!

Since it was almost 7pm, I didn't have enough time to make plenty. So I just baked 24 Banana Coffee Muffins, 24 Chocolate Chips Muffins and 43 Chocolate coated Donuts. Finished everything, including packing at midnight. And the following morning, was out of the house by 7.45 am. Shoba had kindly given me a lift to school. Sold everything before 12.00am! And actually people were still coming for more. Gosh, if only I knew, I would have made more and more donuts as they were selling very very well!

Opps....such a long report I've made. I know you're bored reading them. So I'll get on with the Donut recipe as promised! This is Chef Li's Donut recipe and I got it from Mamazieza's Fotopage. Thanks a bunch to Mamazieza for sharing this fluffy and lovely recipe with us and to Chef Li for producing this wonderful recipe! Since the recipe is for such a large quantity, I have 'downsized' the recipe and there may be slight changes here and there, but the end result is just marvellous!

11 g ( 2 3/4 teaspoons) instant yeast
25 g margarine
40 g sugar

(I actually let it rise to almost double)

8. Sprinkle some flour onto a tray and arrange the donuts.

Hmm...kalau mama tak busy, nanti mama try ok...
