Making gingerbread donuts:
Step 1: breeding yeast.
First you need to prepare the leaven. Mix half a teaspoon of sugar, 50 milliliters of warm milk and 5 tablespoons of flour. And add yeast there. Shuffle.
Give the sourdough time to come up. She must rise within 20 minutes.
Step 2: prepare the dough.
While the sourdough is rising, heat the remaining milk with sugar so that the sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool. Add vanilla.
Sift the flour and add the sourdough, cooled milk with sugar, beaten egg, melted butter, salt and lemon zest.
Knead until smooth with a spatula, then grease your hands with oil and continue kneading with your hands. Knead over 5-10 minutesuntil the dough sticks to the sides of the plate.
Cover the dough with cling film and leave it in a warm place until it is larger in size on 50-60 minutes, about.
Step 3: cut out the donuts.
When the dough rises, roll out a layer with a thickness of 5-6 millimeters. Cut donuts out of the dough using a round shape, diameter 7-8 centimeters. And leave the donuts to reach 30 minutes, roughly so that they increase in size.
Step 4: fry the donuts.
Heat oil in a deep pan or pan with thick walls and fry the donuts in it until golden brown on both sides.
Do not let the dough burn, do not go a step away from the stove so that everything turns out successfully.
Spread the fried donuts on paper towels to remove excess fat.
Step 5: serve the gingerbread donuts.
Once the donuts have cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve on the table with tea or coffee. This wonderful home-made pastry will delight the whole family. Very simple and tasty.
Enjoy your meal!
- Powdered sugar can be mixed with vanilla sugar or cinnamon, then the donuts will be even more flavorful.
