Friday, September 22, 2023

Krofe are deep fried to golden perfection with a fluffy, moist center and lightly dipped in sugar.
What you will need:
1.5 tbsp yeast quick rise
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1.75 cups milk divided, warm
3.75 cups flour
5 egg yolks
1 tbsp oil
½ tsp salt
powder sugar for sugar coating

How to make it:
Combine ¾ cup of milk with 2 tbsp granulated sugar. Mix together with yeast. Put aside for time being.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and egg yolks and continue mixing.
Slowly add remaining warm milk.
Mix until well combined on medium speed, about 10 minutes until dough is airy. If dough is too hard, add a bit more milk.
Remove the hook and leave dough to rise. After the dough has risen to twice it’s size, roll it to 1” thick using a rolling pin. (make sure to flour the surface to prevent dough from stickig)
Dip the rim of a drinking glass in flour and cut the rolled out dough.

Frying the Donuts
Use a deep frying pan, heat the oil on low heat.
Test the oil using a piece of dough by placing it in the oil. If oil bubbles or fizzes, then oil is ready.
Transfer the donuts into the hot oil.
Cook for about 2-3 minutes and flip them over. Cook the other side for about 2-3 min.
Remove and place on paper towel lined plate to absorb the excess oil.
Coat the donuts in powder sugar. Serve and Enjoy
