Let talk about DONUTS!!!

My collection of donut cutters!
Let's talk about donuts. I've been doing donuts for quite sometime especially during my children's cake sale day. Every term, each class will have their very own special class assembly day (also known as the cake sale day) where they will perfom a play during the assembly which takes place every Friday. And on this day, the parents of the child from that particular class, are required to bring something to sell to the rest of the kids. It's a form of PTA fund raising. Before, i use to do some novelty cakes (not perfect but can do! Just to attract other kids to buy my children's cake) or cupcakes for them to sell. Then i thought, let me just try something simple and see how it's like testing the market...and wallah....the donut really sells! And from that day onwards, whenever i ask my kids, what cake must i make for them to sell, the answer will always be CHOCOLATE DONUTS PLEASE! And the funnier thing is, the kids in the school calls me...THE DONUT LADY! Cute huh!

This is the recipe that i use to make for my kids to bring to school.


500g cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (50g) margarine
4 teaspoons sugar
1 egg

Method :

1. Mix well flour, instant yeast and egg.
2. In a small pot, on low heat, melt margarine.
3. Add salt, sugar to melted margarine and finally water. Let liquid be slightly hot.
4. Pour liquid into flour mixture bit by bit and knead till the dough is smooth or developed. For best result, knead using the machine.
5. Allow dough to rise (prove) until it has doubled it's original size.
6. Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to about 1 cm thick. Cut with the doughnut cutter.
7. Leave it to rise again.
8. Fry
9. Coat with sugar or dip in melted cooking chocolate and sprinkle some hundreds n thousands on top.
10. Enjoy!!!!

And recently, I got this recipe from my dear cyber friend and I think, her recipe produces softer donuts. I've tried making them last week and using a different cutter just to give some variety. And also, to try out the new 'toy' (blue in color) that my friend, Alia bought for me from South Africa. Thank you Alia!
