DONUTS WITH RASPBERRY CREAM

Donuts con crema de frambuesas

Mission accomplished! As I told you today on Instagram finally managed to make these donuts with raspberry cream that I’ve been wanting to prepare for quite some time now. This recipe was on a list of recipes that require time and because I’m always short on it, I simply kept delaying it. I have to confess they came out delicious on my first try, so I was quite excited and eager to share the recipe and photos with all of you.

I also felt like experimenting a little bit, so instead of classic donuts I decided to fill them with  raspberry cream. You can of course decide to skip the filling as they are tender and delicious both ways.

homemade donuts

INGREDIENTS for 15  8-centimeter donuts

500 gr plain flour  

150 ml warm milk

70 gr granulated white sugar

50 gr unsalted butter

20 gr fresh yeast

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

A pinch of salt

 

For the filling

100 ml whipping cream

50 gr raspberries

1 cda. vanilla extract 

 

METHOD

Pour the warm milk into a bowl, add the yeast and the sugar. No need to mix. Let it rest so that it can activate, which should take a few minutes.

Now add the flour (after sifting), salt, butter (already melted and at room temperature), the eggs and the vanilla extract. Use the dough hook of a KitchenAid mixer (or similar) to mix thoroughly for 5 minutes. Put the dough on a flat, dry surface sprinkled with some flour to prevent sticking and knead for another 5 minutes.

Place it in a bowl, sprinkle some flour over it and cover with plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out and getting cracked. Let it rise for 45 minutes or until its size has doubled.  

Place it again on a flat surface and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough until you obtain a round shape around half a centimeter thick.

Use an 8-cm cookie cutter (or a glass) to cut the donuts. Put them on a big plate, making sure they are not touching. Cover with plastic film and let the dough rise again for 45 minutes or when they have doubled in size.

Fry them on both sides on a frying pan with very hot oil (170ºC). Place them on a plate with paper towel to drain the oil. Rub them on a dish with white sugar.  If you don’t want the filling, they are now ready!

If you want to try them with the raspberry cream filling, mix the raspberry cream and some sugar in a saucepan and let it melt over low heat. Whip the cream and add the raspberry mix once it has cooled. Put this in a pastry bag, fill each donut through a small hole.

 

Buon appetito!
