Finally Donuts Donuts!

Finally I made my own donuts/doughnuts. With a breadmaker, this donut is really easy to make and that's why I'm making it. I saw the donuts that Jadepearl made and requested her for the recipe. She got the recipe from recipezaar. I haven't had a donut for a long long time so when I saw that she used breadmaker to make the dough, I just had to ask her for the recipe. And I finally got my donut craving satisfied. *Big Grin* Thanks JP!



Just the way I like it, the traditional donuts we get from the Malaysian night market. I couldn't resist buying them whenever I spotted the seller frying them at the night market (pasar malam) ages ago. So soft and yummilicious! Not sure whether this kind of donuts still selling at the pasar malam or not?


This is how Evy likes her. Donuts covered with white chocolate and colorful sprinkles. Definitely not my style but kids seem to love it.

Note: I used butter instead of shortening in the original recipe. I only made half of the dough and freeze half for some other day. I shaped the donuts by hands and made them into smaller size, so half of the dough yields about 16 small donuts for me. This donut is best eaten when it's still warm from the frying wok, soft and fluffy. Turned hard the next day.

The donuts look yummy! There is nothing better than a freshly made donut melting in your mouth!

Baking Fiend said...

OoOo... nice! I love the simple sugar ones.

btw, the white flour in the recipe refers to bread flour or plain flour?

vegeyum said...

Now I have a donut craving!

Jo said...

You are fast. The idea of making donuts have been haunting me since a long time ago. Msia is hit by Donuts lately with the opening of Big Apple.

I really love your blog :) Though I come here often, this is my first comment.

Can you please tell me what you used for "white flour" in the recipe? Is it plain flour or bread flour?

Thanks,

Caprice.

Who needs Krispy Kreme? I prefer the traditional donuts with nothing else but some dusting/powdered sugar!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks Nguyen. And yes go ahead and add me. :)

Cocoa, yes! Try it and eat it warm.

Thank you beachlover. Hehe..

Thanks Louisa! Then I can invite myself over for dinner. :D

Thanks D! Yeah at first I tried to roll it and cut it with a round cookie cutter, but quite troublesome so resorted to shape it into equal size of balls and make a hole in the middle of the balls before putting them into the hot oil.

Thanks Deborah. :)

Hahaha daphne! ;)

Totally agreed HoneyB and thanks!

Thanks Baking Fiend, I used plain all-purpose flour. :)

Haha vegeyum!

Jo, I know! M'sia & S'pore are both hit by donut craze. But homemade version is a whole lot healthier. ;)

Hi Caprice, glad you like my blog. I used plain flour. :)

Tigerfish, hmmm...your version is actually less sugar and less sweet, will make some of this next time. :)

Camemberu said...

Mmmh...donuts! *cue Homer Simpson*
I too prefer the simple sugared version to the iced stuff.

Always nice to see your stuff on Tastespotting!

I also have been thinking about making donuts but the thought of frying them puts me off. Now seeing yours looking so yummy, will attempt to make this someday.

Those donuts look awesome! Very impressive! I am not a fan of donuts myself but the husband would like yours, he has such a sweet tooth :p

ghosie said...

Woooooot...ya donuts look so yummilicious...
i love traditional sugar donuts too...
do u mind send me the recipe...i dun hv a bread machine...is that really necessary? I would love to learn how to make donuts :P!
cheers!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi ghosie,

That link brings to the recipe I used. I just substituted the shortening with butter. You don't have to use a bread machine. You can just mix it together with your hands until a dough is formed and let it rest and proof until double in size.
