Perfect Yeast Doughnuts

Perfect Yeast Doughnuts

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp (90 ml) water
  • 5 oz buttermilk (150 ml) (at room temperature)
  • 1 egg beaten (at room temperature)
  • 2 oz (57 g) butter melted
  • 16 oz (454 g) all-purpose or bread flour (please us a scale)
  • 2 oz (57 g) sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp (5 g) regular or quick-rise yeast (one and a 1/2 teaspoons)
  • oil for frying (I use sunflower or grapeseed or a combination)
  • (sugar for coating the doughnuts)
  • (jam Nutella and or whipped cream for filling if desired)

InstructionsFOR BREAD MACHINE:

  1. Place the water buttermilk beaten egg and melted butter in the bread machine pan then add the dry ingredients which were weighed using a scale (it s so important) except for the yeast. Make a small indentation in the dry ingredients then add the yeast. Set the bread machine on the ‘dough’ setting.

FOR STAND MIXER WITH DOUGH HOOK OR BY HAND:

  1. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl. Put 6 tbsp of lukewarm water in a cup and sprinkle the yeast on top set aside for about 5 minutes until the yeast begins to react (you can add a pinch of sugar to help it). Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients then pour in the buttermilk egg melted butter and yeast mixture. If using a stand mixer run with the dough hook until a dough forms then continue for about 5 minutes. By hand knead for about 10 minutes. Cover and set aside until at least doubled in size.

BOTH BREAD MACHINE STAND MIXER/HAND INSTRUCTIONS FOLLOW BELOW:

  1. Once the dough has doubled place it on a floured surface and knead lightly. Divide it in half keeping half the dough covered so it doesn’t form a skin. With a rolling pin roll out half of the dough to about 1/2? thickness. Cut with a round sharp cookie cutter (about 3? diameter) then make the holes with a smaller cookie cutter (about 1? diameter) saving the holes. Or splurge (haha) and buy this doughnut cutter and save yourself a lot of trouble!
  2. Place each doughnut on a piece of parchment or waxed paper then place on a cookie sheet. Put the tray in the oven (turn it on for 1 minute SET A TIMER then turn it off again just to make it barely warm).
  3. Next boil some water and pour it into a measuring jug. Place the jug of water in the oven with the tray of doughnuts (this will create steam will keep a skin from forming). With the remaining dough divide into quarters then divide each piece in half to make 8 equal amounts. Roll each piece of dough into a smooth ball and place on parchment or waxed paper pieces and place on a cookie sheet; place in the oven with the other doughnuts to rise until doubled in size.
  4. Heat the oil to about 350ºF (180º). If you don’t have a thermometer test the oil with a doughnut hole: if it doesn’t start frying immediately the oil is too cold if the hole turns brown right away the oil is too hot. Adjust the heat accordingly.
  5. Drop the doughnuts into the hot oil using the paper to carefully lower them into the oil. Turn them over as soon as they become golden brown on the underside and remove them and place on a paper towel lined platter once they are ready.
  6. When the doughnuts have cooled roll them in sugar to coat evenly. If you choose to fill the large doughnuts push a skewer into the center of the doughnut to make a hole then place some room temperature jam or slightly warmed Nutella into a piping bag and pipe the filling into the doughnut. Using an ISI whipper pipe fresh cream into a doughnut cut in half (add some jam first if you like).
