This is a very easy recipe for doughnuts which my kids love in the cozy winter weekends.
It is totally natural. The photos are with white Spelt flour but I did it in wholemeal
and they confessed preferring it, which is not an easy thing for them to do 🙂
The recipe is the same one as the chocolate roll I previously posted, so I put it back in
Enjoy and let me know if you tried it out!
This recipe is not one of my easiest ( I had to let the dough rise ) but it’s nourishing, it’s a good
unsweetened chocolate roll for recess at school or at work. All in all, I’d say it’s
a recipe worth doing every once in a while.
I use the bread machine on dough program, to mix it and let it rise. It’s quicker, but you can do it
the ” longer “Way the only difference with the machine is, that it requires dried yeast.
Enjoy the experience!
1. 325 ml = 10.9 u.s oz Water
2. 3 Eggs, it can be left out for the egg sensitive
3. 800 gm = 1.764 lb Spelt flour ( or any other )
4. 4 tbsp olive or sesame oil ( any other is good too )
5. 4 tbsp rice malt ( honey or any other natural sweetener, or 3 tbsp sugar )
6. 2 tsp salt
7. 2 1/4 tsp dried yeast ( or fresh but then you have to prepare it with a few grain of sugar and luke warm water )
1.Take the risen dough roll it out.
2.Use a cup to cut out the doughnut shape.
3.Use a bottle top to make a whole in the middle
if you desire that shape.
I do some with and some without.
4.Fry it in a little pan with about 6/7 cm = 2.3 or 2.7 inches,
olive oil or any other kind on a small fire.
Do not leave the oil too long on high ( the first one still goes )
even with a small fire as
it will brown too quickly and leave it raw inside.
5.Pour rice syrup on top, honey, unsweetened jam which you can put in by making
a small hole in the fried doughnut without a hole, or any other sweetener on the
doughnut and enjoy it.
For the ones who use sugar you can sprinkle icing sugar on top it makes it look very
For the calorie counters, there is a possibility to put it in the oven and
bake. It is not the same taste but it is still delicious!
But mainly use your imagination and do what you fancy doing 🙂
That’s a very old post, I am amazed at how you got on that one?
My sincere appreciation for the feedback and best wishes for a healthy happy warm and cozy holiday ☺
I was wandering about, that’s how I found it! Wandering it what I do best…. 🙂
There should be more like you!
I saw not too long ago a quote saying, not all who wander are lost 😉
They raised really well!
Thanks Marcella! My appreciation goes toward your kind comment 🙂
Best wishes for the new year 2016!
I wish my ciabatta rolls would raise that well, but I don’t have that problem with any of my other breads so I haven’t figured that one out yet. I guess I need to experiment more. Best Wishes for your New Year 2016 too!
Thanks Marcella! I have had the same dough recipe rise and fail to rise…
Sometimes I had put too warm water in it that might have killed the good bacterias in the yeast… I truly can’t tell you for sure why. But one thing I did notice and that might sound weird to some, is when I was in a good mood, had patience and pleasure with it, my chances of success were higher.
