Audrey’s homemade traditional donuts
This weekend (Friday afternoon) I was taking care of my daughter Audrey and I tried to do something different: A cooking afternoon. I decided to show her how to make homemade donuts. We had so much fun. Today I want to share with you the recipe so you can also do it with your little ones.
The real name of the recipe is “Rosquillas tradicionales” (Traditional donuts). This recipe is from my grandma but I’ve changed the official name taking into account the special occasion ha ha ha.
Ok, Let’s go with it: Audrey’s homemade traditional donuts
Ingredients: (for a nice amount)
6 Tablespoons of sugar
4 Tablespoons of milk
4 Tablespoons of sunflower oil
4 Tablespoons of anise liqueur
1 Teaspoon of yeast
Flour (about 400 grams)
How to prepare:
In a big bowl mix the egg (beaten), sugar, milk, oil and anise. It is important to mix well.
It is the moment to add the yeast and the flour. I didn’t write an exact amount of flour because it depends on the size of the egg. The idea is to add the flour one tablespoon at a time and mix well until the dough gets the consistency of play-dough.
Be careful: Do not abuse using flour. If you put too much the result will be a perfect ring stone.
Now the fun begins: Make rolls of dough and make the donuts.
Heat the oil in a pan and deep fry the donuts until golden brown. Remove from the oil, put them on a plate and sprinkle sugar over them. And… that’s it!
As you can see it is easy & fun for you and your kids.
Ok guys, see you soon.
