List of ingredients:
- 1 kg of flour
- 1 cube of yeast
- 1 package of baking powder
- 1/2 l of milk
- 7 egg yolks
- 60 grams of sugar
- 1 package of sugar with vanilla
- 1 dl of oil (+ 1.5 liters for frying)
- 1/2 dl of rum
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 juice of a lemon
- filling of choice
- Powdered sugar
We start off by preparing yeast. We do that by crumbling 1 cube of yeast and adding to it a bit of sugar, flour and milk but don’t exaggerate with the amount. And we set this mixture next to something hot. In my case I set it next to the fireplace so it will rise quicker.
Now we start preparing the dough. First grab a big bowl and put all 7 egg yolks in it comined with 60 grams of sugar.
Now we mix it until it starts to turn yellow. Once it turn to this color we can add the rum and oil into our dough mixture and mix it well.
Next we add the lemon juice and yeast which rested next to a warm place.
And now we start putting in flour and milk in small amounts alternately until we used up the whole flour and milk.
After mixing all of our ingredients well the dough should look similar to this.
Now we start making balls out of our dough. I suggest using a scale for this and putting 70-100 grams of dough into each ball. After using up all the dough we let the balls rest for 30-45 minutes so they rise.
After the balls have rested we put oil in a pot about 3 fingers thick and turn the stove on high until the oil gets hot. Then we start putting balls we made 30 minute ago into the pot. Be careful not to put to many balls in it at once.
Depending on the temperature of the oil the doghnuts will start turning brown and after they get to the color you desire (light brown or dark brown) we flip them.
After they have the same color on top as they have on the bottom they are ready to be taken out of the pot.
Now we grab our filling of choice and start filling them.
After filling up the doughnuts with our filling of choice we sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and after that they are ready to eat.
Enjoy this sweet dessert!
