Buttery, rich yeast dough is deep fried and rolled in cinnamon-sugar.They are crisp on the outside, yet so tender and soft inside.

Doughnuts are all American, which is becoming quite popular here in Kerala. I have seen them in bakeries but they do cost a fortune though…..since I do not own a doughnut maker, I decided to make my own. I have to confess that I did not grow up munching on doughnuts, these were unheard of in Kerala, but my kids having tasted it during one of our holidays wanted me to make them…..and thus these Buttery Munchkins were born!
I wanted to dip them in melted chocolate or make a sugar glaze, but surprisingly both my kids wanted them sugar coated with cinnamon flavor. So, I am leaving that option for you to try out.
I used instant yeast and the dough was doubled up in 1 hour and made around 40 doughnuts…..and it is so easy to make….because, unlike the usual doughnuts with the hole….where you need to roll out, and then cut them with a doughnut cutter, this one is minus all that hardwork…you just have to pinch dough off and roll into lemon size…and deep fry!! EASY!!Print
