Homemade Doughnut with Chocolate Glaze

Yesss.. This is my very first homemade doughnut and i think it is pretty good .Well done me :)I tried quite a few recipes until i find a perfect one for me which is White on Rice Couple's one and as  a chocolate lover,of course used a chocolate glaze on doughnuts..

270 ml milk
50g sugar
1 pkg active dry yeast
140 g unsalted butter
2 large eggs beaten
500 g all purpose flour

For chocolate glaze
80 g unslated butter
150 g dark chocolate


  • Gently warm your milk to 115F,add sugar and yeast ,mix till the sugar dissolve .
  • Gently melt your butter and add it to beaten eggs but be careful butter should not be so warm otherwise it will cook eggs.
  • Put butter into an electric mixer with a dough hook.Turn mixer on low speed  and add yeast mixture to the butter.Mix for a couple of minutes until well combined.
  • Add the flour to the dough ,mix well and transfer the dough to a well oiled bowl.Cover bowl with a plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator.Leave the dough at least 8 hours or overnight.

Roll and cut

  • On a well floured surface roll the doughnuts out to 1/2,1/3 inch thick
  • Using  a 3 inch cutter,cut as many rounds out of the dough as you can.Gently pick up the rounds and place on a well floured sheet pan
  • Using a 1 inch cutter,cut out the center hole.
  • Cover doughnuts in a large tea towel and place ina warm place .Allow doughnuts to raise at least an hour.

Fry the doughnuts

  • In a large pot ,pour enough oil.Heat to 375F .
  • gentle pick up and ease donuts into oil and cook each side until light brown.
  • Remove from oil with a slotted spoon.Drain on several layers of paper towels carefully turning over every 5 seconds,to try and blot as much oil  out as possible.

For the glaze 

  • Melt butter and chocolate together in Ben Mari style.
  • Dunk each doughnut into the glaze and miracle !..
