Donuts… Who doesn’t like them? They are delicious, easy to prepare and you may eat them basically anytime of the day! You can eat them while working etc… There are so many different recipes for doughnuts but one of my favorites is chocolate donuts!
For this recipe (~30 donuts) you will need:
- 1 fresh egg
- 3 ½ cups of flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 5-7 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mashed potatoes
- 75-100g of bitter chocolate
- 2/3 cup semi-skimmed milk
- fat for deep frying
Beat egg until they become homogeneous and light and add the sugar and continue beating. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (hot water bath) and add it to the sugar eggs mixture. Add the mashed potatoes and the milk.
Add baking powder and salt to the flour and bake till. Wrap the dough in plastic and cool it in the fridge for 2 hours. Then roll it out on a floured surface. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Fry, turning each donut once, in deep fat at about 350° until the donuts become golden colored. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
You may want to dip it in melted chocolate or even some honey.
That’s it! I hope you will enjoy it!
