I’m back with yet another Red Star Recipe! Remember how I said it has made all the difference in my yeast baking? Yeah, I haven’t changed my mind! It still works its magic on everything from danish to rolls, and pizza to…doughnuts.
Yeasty, sweet, oh-my-Lord-Help-Me Doughnuts.
What’s better than fried bread and air?
Fried bread and air glazed in sugar.
That is all.
Red Star Doughnuts
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 Egg, room temperature
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 3 cups Bread Flour
- 2 1/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast
Combine yeast, 1 cup flour, and other dry ingredients. Combine milk, water and oil; heat to 120°-130°F.
Combine dry mixture and liquid ingredients, except egg, in mixing bowl of stand mixer with paddle or beaters for 4 minutes on medium speed. Add egg; beat 1 minute. Gradually add remaining flour and knead with dough hook(s) 5 to 7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn to grease top. Cover; let rise until dough tests ripe.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Divide dough into 2 parts. On lightly floured surface, roll each half into a 12 x 6 -inch rectangle. Cut with 2 ½ -inch doughnut cutter. Place on lightly floured cookie sheets. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching. In large heavy pot, heat 4 inches of vegetable oil to 400°F. Fry doughnuts a few at a time, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper towels. Glaze or shake in a paper sack with sugar.
