I made doughnuts (filled with strawberry jam) yesterday. And today, I felt like making the chinese version of this fried goodness. I have to say, I prefer the chinese version better. It’s chewy, not too sweet and very pretty

The american doughnut recipe i used came from cook and eat blog (which came from some magazine that i can’t remember)

the chinese doughnut recipe is as follows:

275 grams bread flour

1 egg

1/2 cup milk, warm

1 tsp active dry yeast

1/2 tsp salt

3 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp oil

more oil for frying

1. Proof yeast in warm milk for a few minutes. Mix dough by dumping everything together. Knead until smooth

2. Let rise in a warm spot for 1-2 hours until doubled.

3. Roll dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 6 portions

4. Roll each portion into a long rope, twist and rope, then twist it around it self, and then do that again. Let then rest for 20 minutes.

5. Fry in oil for 1 minute on each side and you’re good to go!

  1. WOW those look so good! I am going to try these this weekend!
