Try this super delicious and Easy Home-made Fresh Cream Donut.
- 275 ml of milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1½ tsp instant yeast
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- 2 cups flour
- Oil(for frying)
- 1 cup fresh cream
- ½ cup icing sugar
Warm the milk in the microwave.
Now add the sugar and yeast.
Lightly mix together and leave aside for 5 minutes
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, then add the nutmeg and salt and the 2 tablespoons sugar
Rub in butter, add egg and milk, and make a nice soft dough.
Knead the dough for 10 minutes, to form a soft dough
Cover the dough in a bowl and leave to rise for an hour (60 minutes)
Then punch down and break the dough in 10 to 12 balls
Roll each ball between your palms to the size you want. I made miniature ones
Place on a baking sheet, and cover again for 30 minutes
Then using a knife cut gently down the middle to form a very slightly slit
Prepare your pot of oil or if you have you can also use a deep fryer (180°C/350°F).
It's best and easiest to line a baking sheet with some paper towel to drain the donuts and let them cool down.
Place 3 or 4 donuts (depending on the size of the donuts and the size of your pot) at a time into hot oil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through cooking.
Caution: Beware of oil splatters, it's piping hot and can cause serious burns.
Cream. To prepare the cream, place an aluminum bowl with your whisk in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Pour the cream into the bowl, whisk the cream, and once it starts to thicken, gradually add the icing sugar.
Continue to whisk the cream until its thick and creamlike.
Place in a piping bag and once the donuts are cold, pipe with cream in the slit you made prior to frying it in the oil.
