No Fail Homemade Doughnuts

A couple of days ago my little sister begged me to make some doughnut's. She said she got the recipe off a friends share on fbook, so she wrote down the recipe step by step and totally insisted me to make the doughnut's

That day I was so lazy dragging my self to the kitchen but Believe it or not, they turned out so Utterly Delicious That I have named the post a No Fail recipe..
The Doughnuts are so soft from Inside out, their yeast raised, with just the right amount of all the ingredients.

Definitely worth a try if you have a sweet tooth or if  you're a doughnut lover.

Topped with your favorite frosting's, nuts and sprinkles. I used a vanilla sugar cream glaze, for half of the doughnuts, and used nutella for the other half.

I even Coated the doughnut holes with frosting and sprinkles, and inserted a toothpick, and they were the yummiest doughnut holes in the world. Try them for your self to believe this No Fail recipe.

Ingredients: Makes 10-12 large doughnuts
prep time 1-2 hours
cook time 10-15 min

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (maida)
3/4 cup warm milk
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
3 tbsp. warm water
2 1/2 tablespoon cooking oil or melted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon cinnamon optional
Step by Step Method

All the ingredients you will need
In a small bowl mix yeast and warm water cover and let yeast get active for about 10 min.
In a large Mixing bowl, combine, salt, sugar and flour mix with your hand or a whisk, and pour in your yeast. Mix for about a minute, then add in your oil, egg, and vanilla adding in warm milk, little by little.
Remember not too get the dough too soft, if it gets sticky just sprinkle it with some all purpose flour.
Knead the doug
h for about 5- 8 min so when it's done it should look like the dough in the pic above.
Patt the dough with some oil, and cover with a cloth or saran wrap, and place in a warm area for up to 1 hour

After 1 hour the dough should have raised double its size.
Start kneading the dough once again punching out all the air.
On a clean surface roll out your dough. With a cookie cutter or just a plain water glass cut out your doughnuts ( the dough should be 1/2 a inch thick)
Let the doughnuts sit on a floured tray for another 20 min, so they can rise to double its size.
In a large frying pan heat your oil, make sure its not to hot, or to cold throw in a doughnut hole if that comes up to the top of the oil, then your oil is ready to fry. Fry for about 30 seconds on each side
Let your doughnuts cool for about 20 min before you start the frosting.
Pour your toppings or your glaze in a plate and dip your doughnut gently pressing down and then remove.
You can even be creative with leftover doughnut holes, like mines.
Just roll them in your favorite glaze, and top with your favorite sprinkles. Your kids will have a ball over these.
My little one sure did!!
