Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts

Pin It Now!
Doughnuts are popular all over the world; nothing is more scrumptious than a homemade doughnut. While not a healthy dessert but it sure is a wonderful occasional treat. My favorite is chocolate glazed doughnuts with a steaming cup of tea...


Ingredients For Doughnuts

2 &1/2 cups flour
3 tbsp milk powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 & ½ tsp instant yeast
3-4 tbsp melted butter or oil
½ cup warm water

For Chocolate Ganache:

¾ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
½ cup cream

Chocolate Doughnuts


1) Mix all these ingredients and knead it with warm water till the dough forms. Dough should be soft. If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a solid ball. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

2) Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth, rub a bit of oil all over the dough, place dough in bowl and cover it.

3) Cover it with a kitchen towel and put it aside for an hour or till it doubles in size.

4) Turn the dough out on to a floured surface, now roll out the dough in to ½ inch thickness, cut with a floured doughnut cutter, set them aside and let them rise until they rise again , cover loosely with a cloth.

5) Heat oil in a deep fryer, now slide doughnuts in to hot oil, one at a time, turn them over as they rise to the surface, fry the doughnuts until golden brown, about a minutes on each side.  Remember not to over crowd the fryer, removes from oil and drain on paper or a wire rack.

6) While the doughnuts are cooling, make ganache by heating the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat, put chocolate chips in a bowl,  once the cream gets heated pour it  over chocolate  chips and let sit for a couple minutes, and then stir until chocolate is fully melted, and the ingredients are combined.

7) Dip one side of the doughnut into the ganache, and set on a cooling rack, chocolate side up. Dip the remaining doughnuts, and then sprinkle with sprinkles of choice or you can also leave them plain. Enjoy!!!
