I decided to do some baking, and ending up baking some doughnuts. This is a recipe that I'll keep using for sure. But perhaps next time, I won't make the doughnuts this big. I think they would be even more yummier if they were smaller and more adorable. Haha. :P
I don't know why I made them this shape. I rolled out each piece of dough into a length of about 30cm, then I started to scroll them up. I guess they're like.. doughnut horns? Makes it more fun to eat actually because you can start peeling the scroll from outside in. :D
Mmm.. cinnamon and sugar. *thumbs up*
Makes about 20 large doughnuts
280g plain flour
470g self raising flour
14g active dried yeast
370g milk, lukewarm
30g cooking margarine, melted
100g egg (2 eggs)
1 tsp vanilla extract
extra milk, for brushing
cinnamon and sugar, for dusting
Combine flours, yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk milk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract.
Using a stand mixer with dough attachments, slowly add liquid mixture into the flour mixture.
Mix on medium speed for 4-5minutes until combined and becomes a stretchy dough.
Cover and leave to rise for 1.5hrs in a warm place.
Preheat oven to 180C.
Punch dough and lightly knead on a floured surface.
Split dough into 2. Then split each piece into 10 other pieces.
Roll each piece of dough into a 30cm strip. Scroll them up.
Place pieces onto a lined baking tray.
Brush with milk.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Leave to rest for 30mins.
Bake for about 10mins or until cooked.
Best served immediately. Otherwise reheat under a grill or in an oven.
