Its doughnuts time..It is my favourite and i can never stop making new donuts recipes whenever i get time. I have already shared quite a few recipe in my blog. This version is a yeast free version and also a instant version. It is made with baking powder and it has a cake like texture in the doughnuts so these are called as cake doughnuts. I loved it so much. Because the dough is made under 10 mins and these doughnuts from start to finish is made under 30 mins. So easy..
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 2 mins per batch
Makes : 12 to 15 mini doughnuts
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cups
Salt - ¼ tsp
Baking Powder - 2 tsp
Powdered Sugar - ½ cup ( I used icing sugar)
Milk - ½ cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Melted Butter - 1 tblspn
Oil for Deep frying
For Vanilla Glaze:
Icing Sugar / Confectioners Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 2 tblspn or as needed
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Take flour, salt, baking powder in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
Take egg, sugar, milk, melted butter, vanilla in a bowl and whisk using a fork.
Now add the flour in and mix well using the fork. Knead to a soft dough.
Take the dough onto a rolling board and roll it out. Cut doughnut shape using doughnut cutter or a cup and a small bottle cap. Take the scraps and roll it again and repeat the same, do this till the entire batch of dough is used up.
Heat oil for deep frying. Drop doughnuts in and fry till golden on both sides.
Remove it to a plate and set aside.
Make glaze by mixing all the ingredients to a little semi thick consistency. Dip doughnuts in and coat on both sides. Arrange it in a cooling rack so the glaze sets and harden.
Remove it and serve.
