Little hoops of deep fried delicious.
And it gets better...
With nutella and lemon curd with blueberries.
I probably ate 3. They were Delicious and I had a lot of fun. Plus, now I have my own candy thermometer!
Unfortunately, I made a mess.
Oh well, it was worth it.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 quart oil for frying
Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 375 degrees F. For draining doughnuts, prepare a place with paper towels. For powdered sugar doughnuts fill a pan with some powdered sugar.
Sift flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix in butter until crumbly. Stir in milk and egg. With floured hands, lightly knead the dough. Turn onto an area prepared with flour. Pat dough into 1/4 inch thickness. Dip a biscuit cutter and a 1 inch round cutter in flour. Use to cut-out doughnuts.
Carefully drop doughnuts into hot oil, only a few at a time. Fry, turning once, for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
For powdered sugar doughnuts, dry on a paper towel quickly and dump in the pan of confectioner sugar.
Spread on nutella, or the frosting of your choice and enjoy!
