Chocolate dipped healthy donuts recipe in fun bite size
Fancy some deep fried treats but the last batch of donuts broke our heart? Fry the donut holes to fill that hole in our chest... or belly!
Sugar free recipe
Big frying pan with lid (to fry donuts)
Small size and medium size saucepan (to melt chocolate).
/ 250ml Milk or water
/ 15g Fresh yeast
/ 600g Flour
/ 60g Butter
/ 100g Chocolate
Sprinkles to cover donuts
sugar free, optional
Oil for frying
do not use extra virgin olive oil to fry as it would leave donuts with a very strong after taste.
Add yeast to half of the lukewarm milk or water and stir it well. Allow it to sit for five minutes. If it starts to bubble don't worry it's only the yeast working and it's completely normal.
Separate egg whites from yolks.
Beat egg whites until hard peaks form.
Put flour, egg yolks, butter and the rest of the milk into a big bowl. Pour in the milk and yeast mixture too.Knead until the dough is completely uniform.
Fold the egg whites into the dough.
Place the dough in a lightly floured bowl.
Cover and leave it in a warm place for half an hour to rise.
When dough is risen, turn it out onto a well-floured surface. Dust the top of the dough lightly if it's too sticky.
Use a rolling pin to flatten it out about one finger thick.
Use the smallest circle cookie cutter to cut out bite size doughnuts.
Leave them covered in a draft-free, warm spot for another 20 minutes to rise again.
Fill frying pan with oil and heat until sizzles. Don’t put donut into oil before it’s not hot enough. Be patient.
Place doughnuts into the frying pan upside down and put the lid on top. Be careful, hot oil can burn us badly. They float to the top and puff up quickly.
Flip them over to the other side.
When they are golden brown, take them out onto a kitchen towel to drain a bit.
Prepare chocolate: Break it into little pieces and place pieces in a small saucepan over a slightly bigger pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until chocolate is melted.
Stick drained doughnut onto a metal fork and dip one side into the melted chocolate.
Leave chocolate coated doughnuts on a plate with the chocolatey bit facing upwards. Decorate them then put them in a cool place to let the chocolate dry.
Serve and enjoy them after lunch or as a snack any time of the day.
