The most delicious recipe for traditional donuts with honey and nuts that you have tried! Small round golden bites, fluffy and with melancholy taste. Made by hand and with taste, to give your palate flavors that take off.
240 gr. lukewarm milk
240 gr. lukewarm water
15 gr. dry yeast (2 sachets)
450 gr. flour for all uses
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 cut, etc. salt
4 tbsp. Olive oil
oil for frying
350 gr. honey
For the chocolate sauce
200 gr. sliced couverture
110 gr. water
75 gr. fine sugar
To prepare the traditional donuts, start with the dough. Add water and yeast to the bowl of the mixer. Mix with a fork and wait for 5 minutes until the yeast is completely dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients for the dough to the same bowl. Beat the mixture in the mixer (with the whisk) on high speed, for about 2 minutes, until the mixture thickens. (You can also beat it by hand with a whisk, until the mixture is smooth). Cover the bowl with cling film and let the dough rest in a warm place for at least an hour until it swells.
To fry the donuts, add enough oil (for frying) to a medium-sized saucepan. Heat the oil. Test if the oil has burned by adding a little of the porridge. If you see it squeaking, it’s ready.
Dip one tablespoon of water into the water and take a tablespoon of the porridge and pour it into the hot oil. Repeat, always wetting the spoon first so that the porridge slides easily, until the surface of the pan is filled with donuts.
While the donuts are frying, use a slotted spoon to dip them and turn them so that all sides are browned. Remove the donuts to a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb the oil. Repeat with the remaining porridge.
When done, place the donuts on a large platter, drizzle with warm honey and sprinkle with cinnamon and walnuts.
If you are in the mood for some chocolate, garnish the donuts with chocolate sauce. To prepare the sauce, add the sugar and water to a saucepan and simmer. Simmer for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the chopped chocolate and continue stirring until the chocolate melts and the mixture is homogeneous.
Pour the hot chocolate over the donuts, sprinkle with crushed walnuts or almonds and enjoy!
