Shrove Tuesday is a special day for all donut fans. And I am also one of them. I could eat donuts every day actually, but the calories are stopping me 🙂 I prepared for you Polish fried donuts recipe with home made plum jam made by my grandma.
80 g of egg yolks
50 g of sugar
sugar with vanilla
360 g of flour
7 g of dy yeast = 25 g fresh yeast
grated orange peel
125 g of milk
10 g of alkohol
50 g of butter
100 g of plum jam
400 g of vegetable oil or fat
In a mixer whisk egg yolks and sugar until they are fluffy. Next in a separate bowl mix flour and yeast.
Keep adding milk and alkohol to the eggs, while mixing. Next add flour and mi using special yeast-dough-mixer-ending.
When your dough will be ready (it will be moving away from your hand freely), set the dough aside and cover with a cloth and leve it to grow for about an hour.
Whn you see, that your dough is doubled then roll it out on a silicone mat and cut out circles using a glass (6 cm of diameter).
Put 1 tsp on half of the circles and next cover each with plain circles. Form a ball and try to avoid the filling getting out of the donut.
Set aside prepared donuts and leave for growing for about 30 minutes. After that time heat the fat / oil on a pan.
Tip: To check if your fat is properly heated, take a bit of a yeast dough and put into the fat. It should start sizzle and grow, which will mean you can start frying your donuts.
Each donut need to be fryed for 3 minutes on each side.
Fried donuts put on a paper towels, to get rid of fat excess.
You can decorate cooled down donuts however you’d like. I decided to use both icing sugar and powdered sugar as my home-tasters are having different prefrences 🙂
