AgroKitchen: Homemade  Milky Doughnuts

Milky doughnuts are a delicious treat loved by people of all ages. These soft and fluffy doughnuts are coated in a sweet milky glaze, making them irresistible. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make these delightful treats at home.

Ingredients:

-All-purpose flour

– Granulated sugar

– Active dry yeast

– Warm milk

– Unsalted butter, melted

– Eggs

– Salt

– Vegetable oil (for frying)

Milky Glaze:

– Powdered sugar

– Milk

– Vanilla extract

Instructions:

1. Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, mix the warm milk and a teaspoon of sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the milk mixture and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, until foamy.

2. Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, remaining sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the activated yeast mixture, melted butter, and eggs. Mix until a dough forms.

3. Knead the Dough: Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 5-7 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-1.5 hours, or until doubled in size.

4. Shape the Doughnuts: Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air bubbles. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a doughnut cutter or two differently sized round cookie cutters to cut out doughnuts and their centers. Place the shaped doughnuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, cover them, and let them rise again for about 30 minutes.

5. Fry the Doughnuts: Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F (175°C). Carefully add the doughnuts, a few at a time, and fry for about 1-2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

6. Make the Milky Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Dip each doughnut into the glaze, coating them completely. Place them on a wire rack set over a baking sheet to allow any excess glaze to drip off.

7. Serve and Enjoy: Let the glaze set for a few minutes before serving the milky doughnuts. Enjoy them fresh or store them in an airtight container for later consumption.
