Assalamualaikum to all. This morning at 9:30, my daughter Sofea will be taking part in athletic events at Al-Khor International School in Doha… good luck to you girl! And… later this afternoon my elder daughter will be taking her Oral Assessment for the IGCSE English. I know that her teacher told me not too worry but as a mother you can’t help it even though it’s just an oral. Good Luck to you too!
Okay, enough with that, I just want to show you this doughnut that I made yesterday morning as part of breakfast for the girls. Recipe was taken from DTS . This recipe is very simple and doesn’t required much effort and you do not need your best friend BM to help you.
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tbsp milk powder
1 1/2 tbsp caster sugar
1 1/2 tbsp shortening
1/4 tsp salt
100 ml warm water*
1 tsp instant yeast *(*mix together till foamy)
a little bit of water – if needed
colouring ( i used red and green)
caster sugar for coating the doughnut
- In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, milk powder, sugar, shortening and salt and then slowly add the water and yeast mixture. Mix well and add a little bit of water if needed. Knead until the dough doesn’t stick to your hand and bowl.
- Divide the dough into 3 portions. Take one portion and colour it red, another one green and the third one leave it as it is. Combine the 3 portions again to get a rainbow or marble effect.
- Place the dough onto a floured surface, and gently roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a doughnut cutter. Let doughnuts sit out to rise until double about 45 minutes. Cover loosely with a cloth.
- Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large heavy skillet. Slide doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula. Turn doughnuts over as they rise to the surface. Fry doughnuts on each side until golden brown. Remove from hot oil, to drain on a wire rack. Coat with the caster sugar.
