Lords of the rings



 “The only circle of trust you should have is a doughnut.”




600 gr (4½ cups) all-purpose flour

2-3 tsp yeast

250 ml milk

70 gr (1/3 cup) sugar

2 eggs

75gr (1/3 cup) butter – room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract


150 gr (1 ¼ cups) powdered sugar

2 tbsp butter

hot water

[100 gr dark chocolate]


Whisk together the flour and the yeast and slowly add the milk. Combine the sugar, eggs, vanilla and butter and keep kneading for 15 minutes. Once the dough is smooth, leave it in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise for 2 hours in a slightly warm spot, it should double in size.

Lay out the dough (about 1cm thick) and cut out the doughnuts. Let them rise for 40 minutes in a slightly warm spot.

At this point you can fry the doughnuts in steaming oil.
For the frosting, whisk together the powdered sugar and the melted butter and then add enough hot water to make it moderately fluid. This is the traditional sugar frosting; if you want a chocolate glaze, simply add the melted chocolate.
Once the doughnuts have cooled down, frost them and let firm.
Enjoy every bite of these soft and sugary rings!
