Home Sweet Home Bakealong 33: Doughnuts

June 28, 2015

After my grumpy indifference to the last two bakes, this one was a joy. It turns out that doughnuts are really quite easy to make and people like them a lot.

We had a BBQ at our place this weekend with lots of our friends and these went down a treat. Sun out, picnic rugs on the grass, Glastonbury in the background and fresh doughnuts. I’d take that over a field full of strangers and a trek to each stage any day. Thanks Hummingbird Bakery – these definitely aided some quality weekend fun,

Home Sweet Home hummingbird bakery easy doughnut recipe

from Home Sweet Home by The Hummingbird Bakery

Makes 10-12 plus holes

1 packet instant dried yeast [They use dried active yeast]
60ml lukewarm water
2 tbsp caster sugar
190ml warm milk
1 large egg
30g butter, melted [see note below]
340g strong white flour
700ml sunflower oil for frying

For dusting:
100g caster sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Make up the dough as you would for bread, prove once, knock back, cut out and fry.
If you’re using the istant packet yeast like me you can put the milk, water and butter in together and heat lightly to melt the butter and get the liquid slightly warm (not too warm) and then add that do the dry mix. It save on time and the thing about waiting to let the yeast activate)

Join Beckie and me in our Epic 100 part bakealong. Next week: Cheese and Rosemary Breadsticks (deja vu anyone?)#HomeSweetHomeBakeAlongI’m also adding this to CookBlogShare hosted Super Golden Bakes#CookBlogShare
