We have a deep fryer in our house and each time we change the oil (this never happens as often as it should lol), I like to use the clean fresh oil to make donuts. I haven't made a batch for a while and this time I thought I would try out a new recipe for them.
This was a simple recipe to make and was a hit with the kids.
ANGEL FOOD DONUTS
(Makes about 30 donuts)
3/4 Cup Sour Cream
1 Cup Sugar
3 large Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
4 Cups sifted Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
Combine the sour cream and milk - beat until foamy.
Gradually add the sugar and eggs, beating until sugar is dissolved.
Stir in the vanilla and dry ingredients.
Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Roll out to about 1cm or so thick.
Cut out the donuts (I used a scone cutter and a soft drink bottle lid)
Deep fry, turning gently when lightly browned.
The kids helped to sugar these. We used a mixture of white sugar, caster sugar and icing sugar with a touch of cinnamon added.
We found these were even yummier the following day after being placed in the freezer overnight then defrosted and zapped in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
Served with icecream - DELICIOUS!!
