Yochana,

Doughnuts....I have been craving for doughnuts since I got back from Taipei. Tried the "Mister Doughnut" there and really loved them. Hope they will come here in the near future.

All your bakes today, so yummy !

Yaha,

You should try "Krispy Kreme" doughnuts. There's one in Seoul, but I missed it. It's really very good. Hope it will come to sg soon. Yeah..Mister doughnut is good. I used to eat it in Australia too. Eat when it's piping hot..."slurp"

Hi Lucy! I would like to make these for tomorrow morning breakfast. Mami half-fried some & freeze them for tomorrow. I believe, she re-fried it till golden brown. My question is can I make the dough tonight & freeze them overnight? When tomorrow morning comes, I'll just left it at room temperature for a while before shaping it, let it rest & fry till golden brown. Is it ok, Lucy? Thanks & regards.

yochana said...

Yes sophia that can be done.

Hello Yochana,

May I know if I need to knead the doughnut recipe at all or just put into a cake mixer and mix them like you mentioned. T.I.A

yochana said...

Hi Amy,

It's better to let the cake mixer do the work cos our hands are not strong enough to work out the gluten.

Dear Aunty,

Hope everything is well with you there.

I tried doughnuts recipe yesterday. I used the stand mixer and follow the instruction carefully. The dough rises quite well after 45mins. The ball of the dough is smooth and rounded then i rolled dough flat and cut them with the doughnut mould and let it rest for 45mins and it rises quite well also. It is soft after i took out from the fryer about an hour later the doughnuts is not that soft. Aunty do you have any idea why is that so? Oya, when u said pour in beaten egg,how should i beat the egg..just beat slightly only?

I would like to try the buttermilk doughnuts today. If i do it the morning i should refrigerate overnight also? i hope i can get the soft texture. Thanks Aunty for reading my message hope to hear from you soon.

Kindest Rgds, Loveswhisper

Hi Loveswhisper

Doughnuts are supposed to be soft even when it's cold. When dusting, don't dust with too much flour and don't add additional flour when kneading.
