Honey Cruller (Crew-ller) Doughnuts1   Honey Cruller (Crew-ller) Doughnuts2Tried Tested
So I tried these yummy French doughnuts today. They are excellent ….

1 cup water
6 tbsp butter
1 cup cake flour
Pinch of salt
4 Jumbo eggs
Vegetable or canola oil for frying
Honey Glaze : 1 1/2 cups icing sugar, 2 tbsp honey, 1/2 tsp lemon essence/vanilla essence, 2 to 4 tbsp milk depending on the consistency you would like the glaze.
Mix all ingredients together in a flat dish and dip doughnuts into the glaze. Allow to drip on a wire rack for 40 mins or until the glaze has set.
In a saucepan boil together butter and water. Remove from heat add flour and salt stirring until dough comes away from the sides of saucepan, return to low heat and stir mixture for 1 1/2 mins. Remove mixture and place in a mixing bowl to cool for 8 mins. Add eggs one at a time beating with an electric mixture. Add last egg and beat mixture a further 2 mins until glossy. Place mixture into a piping bag with a large star nozzle and pipe a round circle on small pieces of parchment paper that have been greased with spray and cook. Use a pastry brush to spread the cooking spray onto the parchment paper.
( you will place the circle of choux pastry face down into the hot oil.) with the parchment paper attached. After 1 min remove the parchment paper with a pair of tongs. Cook doughnuts 2 to 3 mins per side. Drain on paper towels. Once cool, glaze the doughnuts.
