I had the ultimate Krispy kreme donuts when I went to Detroit in Jan.KK donuts are just awesome. It simply melts in ur mouth. And its such a treat watching the KK belt, where u can see the donuts being fried and then tossed and coated with the smooth sugar glaze.... and then the attendent picks up one hot donut and hands it over to u for tasting..... ummmmm...:P wtelse can u ask for?? right? Anyways I never thought I cud ever make these at home, until I found Rashmi's recipe. I saw these donut pictures in her album and when I saw the recipe... I wanted to try it as soon as possible because it is soooooooooooo easy to make. Here is the actual recipe. I will post the recipe again. So to make these delicious donuts you need....
Ingredients for donuts:
Pancake mix (I used buttermilk complete from Aunt Jemina) - 2 cup
Milk - 1/2 tbsp
oil - 1 tsp
water - 1/2 tbsp
Oil for deep frying
Fo glaze :
Confectioner's sugar - 1 cup
hot water - 11/2 tbsp
hershey's Chocolate syrup
Sprinkle - multi colour and chocolate
Heat the oil in a deep bottom pan (kadhai) at medium high.
Mix the milk and water. Take the pancake mix in a bowl and add the milk and water mixture to it slowly while lightly mixing with hand.add the oil.See that u dont knead it too hard. Use light hands....no pressure. See that u dont make it very watery...the dough shud be like the roti dough.once the dough comes into a nice ball keep it aside for 4-5 minutes.
In the meantime prepare the sugar glaze by mixing water in the confectioner's sugar.Be careful while adding water so that u dont make it very watery. the galze shud be smooth and a bit thick...:)
Now take small balls of the dough and press it using ur palm. Make into small circle using ur hand. Now using a bottle cap ( I used an oil bottle cap) and cut out the hole in the centre. Make few donuts this way and fry them out.
Arrange the donuts in a plate and pour or brush the sugar glaze of top of the donuts. See that the sugar glaze goes till the bottom of the donuts...to make it evenly sweet..:). To decorate put the sprinkle on the donuts before the sugar glaze dries out. For a chocolate glaze, take the choclate syrup in a small plate and dip one side of the donut in the syrup and then add sprinkle to it. Your donuts r ready to be served...:)
Your yummy donuts are ready.....enjoy them hot for the delicious flavour...:D
