My boyfriend bought a deep fryer. So after a meal with fries, he looked at me and said the oil still was in the fryer, and would I like to make donuts?
Hmm. Would I like to make donuts. Would I like to make donuts? Would I like to make donuts? Would I like to make donuts? Would I like to make donuts? Would I like to make donuts?
Yeah. I would like to make donuts. So I did.
Or, actually, I made crullers. French Crullers, as Ms. Humble does, though I omitted the honey glaze, and just dusted with powdered sugar and cinnamon.
2.25 dl water
85 g butter
2 tsp. powdered sugar
pinch of salt
135 g flour
app. 2 egg-whites
Mix butter, water, salt and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. When combined, add the flour, and stir until combined.
Cook for 3-4 minutes, removing at much water as possible. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and beat in the whole eggs, untill well combined, then add a little egg-white at the time, still beating, until the mixture is glossy but still holds it shape.
Prepare pieces of parchment paper, 10×10 cm, and poke a hole in the middle. Pipe rounds on the parchment papers, and fry in vegetable oil until golden, either in a deep fryer, or in a pan with 4-5 cm oil.
Re-use the parchment paper, it will loosen from the crullers while frying.
Place the crullers on paper towel, to soak up some of the oil, and dust with powdered sugar or powdered sugar with cinnamon.
Take loads of pictures, and eat!
