A big round of applause to rinnchan...
I finally did a first timer it is a real triumph. For those who have been dealing with donuts..arrgghhh..maybe it`s nothing, but I tell you...nothing is more worthwhile than having desired result turned out to be real...
Eversince I saw those donuts at mamazieza`s FP..sth was pushing me hard from the it rinn..just do it...and here`s the result. Credits to mamazieza..although the original recipe was actually from Chef Li...I must convey my heartiest gratitude to both of you for the amazing recipe. Though the ingredients look somehow a lot..but nothing compares to the end result !!!
Even the kidz claimed ..they were just like those at bakeries and be specific, dunkin donuts..
Anyway...first time looking at the ingredients...whoa..whoa...1500gm of flour..wait a I going to make donuts for sale or what..???.On top that I have to manually knead the dough..ho ho ho....Okey..okey..don`t get panicked..
I recalculated the amount of ingredients so that I used only 1000gm of flour..i.e. 1kg..It is still a big amount I guess..and I made 32 regular size donuts out of that.

So this is the recalculation :

Makes : 32 pieces
1 kg multipurpose flour
22gm mauripan instant yeast ( exactly 2 packets of 11gm each)
50gm margarine
80gm castor sugar
1 egg
30gm milk powder
10gm salt ( I used 1 1/2 teaspn)
10gm bread softener (I used 2 teaspn bread improver)
90gm shortenings
5gm baking powder (I used 1 teaspn)
500gm water (room temperature)
3/4 tablespn ovalette

1. In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients and ovalette. Mix well.
2. Add in egg and water. Continue kneading.
3. Add in shortenings and margarine. Knead well or until all ingredients well incorporated.
4. Take out dough and let it rest for 5 minutes. Punch out gas.
5. Roll flat for 1cm ~1.5cm thick and cut using donut cutter.
6. Place donuts on tray which has been spreaded with a little flour.
7. Leave to proof until doubled the size.
8. Deep fry over medium heat. Leave to cool.
9. Coat with castor sugar or garnish as desired.

The following is the original recipe copied from mamazieza`s FP...Halalkan ye mama...

Donat ni lebih lembut dan lebih gebu daripada donat biasa kerana telah ditambah dengan pelbagai bahan
Kelembutan tahan hingga keesokkannya.
Tempoh pemeraman mesti mengikut masa yang diberi untuk menjami mutu
Goreng ngan api sederhana supaya masak sempurna

Mendingin bekukan donat
Goreng sehingga masak putih kekuningan.
sebelum bungkus.. bekukan donat supaya bentuk asalnya kekal.


Ooopppss....There`s a lil` secret actually..while busy enjoying ownself making donuts..being unawared I have left out one of the ingredients...milk powder... I noticed nothing affected the outcomes though..I don`t know, if somebody can tell what difference shall it make with or without milk powder in the dough...never mind then.

To mamazieza...After this the makcik who sells kueh and donuts by the roadside near my taman perumahan will lose one of her customers who once in a while drop by to buy donuts... Taste wise..what more do you expect from home-made donuts, thanx a thrillion.....

To mamafami..thanx for the advice I asked you about the white choc stripes on the donuts..I guess it turned out juuusssst puuuurrrrfect...

Purrrrrr..Purrrrrrr......for you

This is TARO, acik Alya`s one month old kitten......
