Hello assalamualaikum everyone! I am not sure what’ve got into me recently. Probably I am out of ideas on what to cook or bake since we all are going through a bloody circuit breaker. And Ramadan is ending soon (so sad but we will meet again next year, insyaAllah).
I made lazy doughnuts today.
Why do I call these mini doughnuts lazy doughnuts? Cause I only use three ingredients! And I’m not using any yeast so I don’t have to wait for hours, waiting for the dough to rise *inserts laughing emoji*.
1 cup of raising flour
1 cup of plain yoghurt (not 1 cup full, like 80% of it) (alternately, you can use soy yoghurt)
1tbsp of baking powder (can use baking soda too)
1. Mix all ingredients into one bowl. Mix gradually by using a spatula. Your dough will be quite sticky so if you’re not comfortable with it, don’t use hands.
2. Replace dough into a piping pipe. Give a small cut on the edge.
3. Add in some oil in the saute pan, medium heat. Once the oil is hot, squeeze the dough in the piping pipe and cut it into small pieces or circle.
4. Once the doughnuts have changed color to golden brown (below), toss out and let it cool for an hour before you pour your glaze.
Now… for the sugar glaze, I only use 5tbsp of cane sugar and 4tbsp of water.
On a skillet, put both ingredients and simmer slowly with low heat. This will take time. At first the sugar + water will look kinda watery but as you continue simmering, it will become thicker and the sugar will start to boil too. At this point, turn off the heat, toss in your doughnuts and coat the doughnuts until the sugar has dry. Like this (below photo).
You can also coat your doughnuts with melted chocolate or buttered color rice too. I had mine with sugar glaze and kaya jam.
Simple and easy right? Hope you enjoy and try it out at home with your kids!
