Strawberry-Filled Doughnuts

Food; Eating

Doughnut Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp. dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 3 cups flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2½ tbsp. butter (or oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Confectioners sugar for dusting

Directions:

  1. Pour the warm water, yeast and 1 tsp. sugar into a small bowl. Set aside for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, butter and eggs. Add the yeast mixture and knead until the dough is smooth and stretchy. Cover the bowl with a damp towel (or saran wrap) and place it in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  3. Roll the dough out to approximately ½-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter, or the mouth of a glass, to cut circles from the dough. Transfer the dough circles to a parchment-paper lined cookie sheet and set them aside to rise for 20 minutes.
  4. Fill a deep frying pan or wide-bottomed pot with 3 inches of canola oil. Heat the oil to 350°F / 180°C. Gently drop the doughnuts into the oil and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden. Remove and set aside to cool for a few minutes. Repeat until all doughnuts have been fried.
  5. Poke a hole in the side of each doughnut and insert filling (recipe below). Dust with confectioners sugar.

Yields: 20 doughnuts

Strawberry Filling Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup water
  • 5 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups strawberries

Directions:

  1. Heat the water and slowly add the cornstarch. Once the cornstarch has completely dissolved, add the sugar and strawberries.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Let mixture cool, then place it in a piping bag, or a zip-top bag. Cut off the corner and squeeze filling into the doughnut.
