Fresh warm doughnuts are a tradition in many Portuguese homes especially during the Easter season
- 2 medium-sized eggs
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 3/4 cup of mascarpone cream cheese
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 2 1/3 cups of flour
- Oil for frying
- Granulated sugar for sprinkling
In a bowl, beat the eggs and sugar, add the mascarpone cheese, mix well and add the juice and lemon zest.
Knead again, slowly incorporate the flour and baking powder and knead some more so everything is well incorporated.
Let the dough stand covered with a cloth for half an hour at room temperature.
Heat the oil, put the dough on a pastry board, and separate the dough into pieces of about 1 ounce each, make rolls with your hands lightly floured, cross them at the ends and continue until the dough is finished.
Fry in hot oil, until golden brown.
Drain on kitchen towel.
Sprinkle with granulated sugar while they are still warm.
