Chocolate Ganache Glazed Donuts

I suddenly crave for fresh donuts, but the only donut place in town went out of business two years ago.  So I decide to make my own chocolate ganache glazed donuts. O(∩_∩)O~

I make a batch of donuts.  The inner circle dough balls cut from donuts don’t go to waste either.  I fry them along with donuts, top with icing sugar and sprinkle with ground cinnamon  and sugar, yum!

Ingredients:

2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup luke warm whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoon yeast
1 large egg
3 to 4 tablespoons sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons melted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
oil for frying

 

Donuts toppings:

Chocolate ganache
sugar
ground cinnamon
icing sugar

 

Directions:

Add flour, sugar and salt to the bread machine.  Mix together.  Make a well on the top of flour mixture.  Add milk, sprinkle with yeast and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Add egg and melted butter.

Start dough process.

The bread machine finishes kneading.

It also automatically proofs the dough.

Transfer the dough to a well-floured wooden board.  Gently knead it with hands to get rid of any big air bubbles.  Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 10 minutes.

With a rolling pin, roll the dough to about half inch thin.  Use round biscuit cutters to cut it into donut shapes.  When done, cover them with plastic wrap again and let them rest for about another 20 minutes.

Add oil to a wok  or pot.  Heat it over high heat.  When the oil gets hot, fry the donuts until both sides are golden brown. Each side takes about 1 minute, more or less.

Dip them in the chocolate ganache.

Cool on a cooling rack.

Now it is time to enjoy!O(∩_∩)O~

I know you want a bite of these too!

Do not waste the center part cut from donut dough.  Fry them to golden brown too.  Top with icing sugar and sprinkle with ground cinnamon and sugar.

They are surprisingly tasty too! O(∩_∩)O~
