INSTANT DONUTS!

instant donuts


Donuts or Doughnuts they are definitely on my list of favourites, there's something so warming and comforting about them ,they smell gorgeous and taste heavenly, and i am craving for one right now ,right away, but wait! theres a problem ,they take an awful lot of time to make you know-using the yeast, proving the dough, several hours for sure. Oh! I despair -what to do??
Recently I have been experiencing these kind of cravings-Instant gratification! thats all i want, and thats how two of my recipes were born- Instant donuts! and Instant Italian Pizza(will post recipe of that soon) and believe me they are out of this world(I polished off the entire batch while making them!).Check them out!
Ingredients-
makes 8-10 donuts
Refined flour(maida)- 1 cup
powdered sugar- 1/2 cup(save 1 tbsp for dusting on top)
yellow butter- 1 tbsp
egg- 1
milk- 1 tbsp.
baking powder-1/2 tbsp.
vanilla essence- 1/2 tbsp
salt- 1/4 tsp.
pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon
vegetable shortening /vanaspati - for deep frying( i know the argument against trans-fat but to get the proper taste do try to use this only)

Method-
Combine egg and sugar and beat very well, sieve together flour, nutmeg and cinnamon, baking powder and salt ,add to the egg-sugar mixture lastly add vanilla essence and slowly combine milk a little at a time till you acquire a soft dough, (adjust quantity of milk if necessary). Roll out dough about 1/2 ' thick and cut either with a donut cutter or any round object ,cut out a smaller hole in the middle ,repeat with the remaining dough.Deep fry in fairly hot oil, they will rise up well, keep flipping quickly since they tend to brown soon,remove with slotted spoon as soon as they are a nice golden brown.
If you are planning to dust them with powdered sugar, sieve sugar on top of them the minute you take them off heat because its the excess oil that makes the sugar stick to them ,this is very important
for chocolate covered ones-dip one side of donut into the chocolate satin-glaze and leave on wire rack to set.
Just taste one ,they are sure to take care of your worst donut craving! instant gratification! lol

Hi Bindiya...spent a good deal of time drooling over kala chanas & donuts, and the caramel nest. Great idea about the caramel. The donuts look so good that they've given me a craving...they look like the krispy creme ones...INSTANT is good for me too! We'd better start the bakery together!! :0)
