THEY WERE DELICIOUS!
Last week I needed to bake. Went through my cupboard and found last year’s Ricardo’ summer magazine. DO NOT WAIT THAT LONG TO TRY THIS!
A bit long to make but easy. Better than any donuts you’ve ever tried!
Don’t wait, tomorrow would be a great day to try this!
Like I said before, this is a Ricardo recipe:
What you need:
2 tablespoons of room temperature water
2 teaspoons of instant yeast
4 and half cups of flour
half a cup of sugar
1 cup of heavy cream
1 teaspoon of salt
In a bowl, mix the yeast and water, leave it for 5 minutes
In your mixer with a hook, mix flour, sugar, cream, salt, eggs and the yeast mixture. Mix until the dough starts to form a ball around the hook. At that point, I removed it from the mixer and worked the dough on the counter with a bit of flour. Once the dough is soft, place in a big clean bowl that’s been oiled. Cover with a damp towel and leave for 2 hours.
Put lots of flour on the counter and roll out the dough, make a rectangle of about 6x 30in. Cut the dough in slices of 6×2. Knot the dough, place on a cookie sheet and let rest for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oil at 180. Place 2 or 3 donuts at a time. Cook until golden and place on another cookie sheet with paper towels. Toss the knots in the sugar and EAT!
Will make around 24 knots.
These are best eaten on the same day, so invite family and friends and ENJOY!
