Sweet Potato Donut

Salam Maal Hijrah to all my muslim readers... been a year already ey... how time flies... it seems like yesterday that I was wishing the same to my readers.. soon our kids will start their school hols and bef we know it... we as parents will be busy preparing our kids to go back to school... this is our cycle of life.. it is like a wheel... it goes round and round.. of cos while its spinning u will hv a few obstacles and of cos u will try ur best to go thru it and keep the cycle going.. sigh.. soon i will be 44yrs old... what hv i achieved so far? i wud hv say... Alhamdullilah... I hv my family with me... my parents are in good health... both my sisters are well..

Its not even the end of the year and I am having flashbacks... this year has seen better days than the year bef eventho there were times when i wished i didnt hv to go thru it - nevertheless i am happy... am happy that i wake up every morning to see my family in good health :o)

So ok.. bef i go on and on abt life.. i just wanna thank every single person that has ordered thru my online store and my bakes... i enjoy what i am doing right now and Insyallah will try to bring in new things into my store.. am hoping that i will get to source diff things while in Europe... so do keep a lookout yah..

In the meantime.. lets feast our eyes on this donut hehe.. The first time i saw this chubby donut was when Nor loaded it up on her FB wall.. her donut looks so chubby that on the very next day.. i had to get myself a bag of sweet potatoes.. knew that it would best to share it among my sisters.. doubled the recipe and got myself close to 40pcs... took it to moms place during Deepavali and got a hundred likes fm everyone ahaks.. ty Nor for sharing it with us... Donut was chubby and stayed soft even on the next day :o)

320g flour
2 tsp instant yeast
60g sugar
180g sweet potato - boiled and mashed
1 egg
90ml water
1 tbsp condense milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter

I used my breadmaker to do the job.. u can of cos do it manually.. once its done its course.. u take ur dough out.. gv it a light punch and start to divide ur dough into balls.. each ball at 40g.. roll ur ball.. press it a little and take ur round cutter to cut a hole in the middle.. place ur donut on ur tray.. cover it with a cloth and let it rise for the second time.. once it has doubled in size.. prepare ur oil.. heat it up and start to fry..

Below is the recipe in Bahasa fm Nor of Secubit Garam... Original recipe is fm KWan.

320 gm tepung gandum
2 sudu kecil yis segera ~ k.nor guna mauripan
60 gm gula castor
180 gm keledek rebus ~ k.nor guna keledek oren
1 biji telur A
90 ml air
1 sudu besar susu pekat manis
1/2 sudu kecil garam
1 sudu besar butter
gula castor secukupnya

Cara-cara :
Lecek/lenyek keledek yg direbus tadi hingga halus. Ketepikan.
Masukkan tepung, yis, gula dan keledek. Gaul sebati.
Masukkan pula telur, garam dan air (air perlu dimasukkan sedikit demi sedikit), gaul hingga membentuk sebiji doh.
Kemudian masukkan butter dan uli hingga menjadi doh yg lembut dan tak melekat pada mangkuk.
Tutup mangkuk dgn tuala lembab atau plastik cling dan biarkan adunan naik sekali ganda.
Bila adunan dah naik, ambil sedikit adunan (lebih kurang35 - 40gm) dan bulatkan.
Letak atas papan pencanai yg ditabur sedikit tepung dan tekan2 hingga sedikit leper (lebih kurang 1 1/2 cm)
Tekap bahagian atas doh tadi dgn menggunakan mulut botol air mineral/minuman utk membentuk lubang pada tengah2 doh.
Keluarkan doh yg dibahagian tengah tadi dan ulang sehingga habis adunan.
Rehatkan doh yg dah dibentuk lebih kurang 20 - 30 min (atau sehingga doh naik/mengembang kembali - doh akan lebih cepat naik kalau cuaca panas)
Panaskan minyak dengan api yg sederhana dan goreng donut hingga masak.
Angkat dan toskan.
Biarkan seketika kemudian barulah disalutkan dgn gula castor.

Last but not least.. pics of Sonia doing what she does best.. playing with batter hehehe... i will try to do this Angry Bird steamed cake again when we get back fm our trip .. wanna share this recipe.. cheers!

Donut or Doughnut?

Give me one good reason why at times u crave for Donuts.. maybe cos u happen to walk pass by the super uber famous donut place and u didnt get it OR u did buy a box but u forgot all abt it till that doughnut turned hard rock.. heheh well thats what happened to my donut while in KL :op

So of cos the first thing that i did today was to prepare em'.. dipped my donuts in dark and milk chocolate and bef i knew it.. i was munching on it with a cup of coffee.. ahhhhh this is heaven..

Packed half of it for hb afternoon tea at work.. called a cab and off we went to hb's work place.. took sonia to ELC and by half past 6.. we were already on our way to pick up some stuff fm BIY and Phoon Huat..

So did my craving for a good ole donut come to reality?? hehhe of cos! hb loved it.. he said.. "Sedap Ma!".. i told him he better like it cos i used Marmer Couverter chocolate for my donut's topping ahakss

500g high protein flour - bread flour
100g sugar
11g instant yeast
4 egg yolks
200 ml water

100g butter / margarine
1 tsp salt

200g White Cooking Chocolate - melted
100g Almond Slice - roastrd

Stir ingredients A, knead until lumpy, add ingredients B, continue to knead until smooth elastic.
Rest dough for 10 minutes.. divide dough into several balls weighing 40g each.
Rest for a further 20 minutes.
Punch a hole through the middle, then fry until cooked. Drain. Chill.
Dip one side surface of the donut in the melted chocolate, sprinkle almond.
Place donut in fridge to harden chocolate..

My way: I dumped everything in my BM accordingly of cos.. click on ON and after one hr and 10mins my dough was done.. gave my dough a light punch and divided my dough into several balls.. let it sit for another 20mins bef punching a hold thru the middle of the donut.. fry till cook..

I told him to take up car licence but instead hes been taking motorbike licence behind my back (hb found lesson receipts).. I did confront him and he came back to me with his super duper answer... "I will get both licences lah mama" grrrrr

Anyway Song is now out of ICU and according to hb he can talk a little and cud reconised hb who went to visit him earlier today. (Song, extra big servings of Banana Muffins when you get out!)

Yesterday we went to the Zoo again and this time round sis Wati got all the family to go too.. we were there by half past 8 in the morning and thank goodness we were there early cos by 12pm .. the weather was starting to get scorching HOT!! yikes

Today we decided to take it easy and while hb was in NUH to visit Song.. I decided to try out another donut recipe...texture is super soft... different to ur norm donut taste.. dough was very easy to handle and most important of all.. it taste delish! hb ate lots and so did Hairi and Sonia.. and me of cos hehhe..

Donut.... again

Wanna hear an eerie story?? this happened late last night.. around 11 o'clockish.. i had just put sonia to bed and while in the loo i smell a funny smell that comes out of our room... i walked outside (hb was downstairs watching telly) and went straight to our study room and cud smell something sweet... u know that super super sweet smell? malay called it "kemenyan".. the smell were so so strong that i got cold-shivers-down-my-spine!...  i recite "ayat kursi" and  quickly ran downstairs and asked hb if he cud smell something... he said "yeah, i closed the back door and the kitchen door so that the smell wont come into the living room" hahha... duhhh hes so so naive! i told him that its the "kemenyan" smell... and being thursday night and close to midnight, i got really really scared... both of us decided to check if there were something or whatever at the back of the house... nothing on the left... nothing on the right... we looked at one another and as if we understood each other.. ran back into the kitchen... closed the door behind us and sat on our sofa! hahaha to be honest, it was scary and funny at the same time.. the smell still lingers around for almost half an hour or so bef it disappear... hmmm

Anyway my plan to prepare donut dough earlier went after midnight... started preparing dough close to 1am and was done within half an hour... thats the thing abt this recipe.. u can get it done quick! very very easy, no hassle, just mix and cut and fry... u dont even hv to let it proof if u dont hv the time... the texture of the donut is soft, very fluffy, light and delish!

I prepared it last night, half fried it and keep it in a container... deep fried it this morning and wallaaa ... we hv donut for breakfast!! hehhe... recipe fm HaSue...

500g high protein flour (i used half bread flour and half all purpose flour)
1 packet of instant yeast (11g)
50g Margarine (i used unsalted butter)
1 tbsp Shortening
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp condense milk or milk powder
1 egg (mix)
1/2 tsp salt
190 - 200ml warm water
Fine sugar for coating

1. In a big bowl, add warm water, yeast, sugar, milk, margarine and shortening and stir using spoon lightly and let it rest for 8-10 mins.
2. Once yeast mixture starting to bubble, add half of sifted flour into bowl, add egg and salt too... continue to stir using spoon (in one direction)
3. Once mixture incorporated and not sticking to ur spoon, add another half of the sifted flour, mix lightly with spoon and quickly continue to knead dough using ur hand till dough no longer sticking to the bowl (u will know if dough is ready when ur dough no longer stick to ur fingers)
4. U dont hv to let dough rest but if u want a much much more rounder donut, u may do so for 5 to 10 mins
5. Roll dough to abt 1/2" thick and cut with donut cutter

6. Heat oil and deep fry donut on medium heat till golden brown (if u prefer a much more fluffier, do rest it for 10mins or so, the more lighter ur donut is, the more fluffier it will be)
7. Once cool, coat donut using fine sugar or melted chocolate..


Ok heres the deal... i dont make donut all the time and when i do feel like having one i wud always stick to this recipe... its easy and taste good too... dough is easy to handle and not sticky at all.. u can either use a stand mixer or be lazy like me... use a breadmaker machine to knead ur dough hehe.. a recipe by Sifu Suria..

3 cups flour
3tbsp milk powder
3tbsp shortening
3tbsp sugar

200ml warm water
2tsp instant yeast
20ml warm water (if needed)

Mix B and add to A... Knead till it no longer stick to ur bowl..
Roll it and use a donut cutter to cut it.
Let it rest for 30 mins or until dough double in size
Fry it till golden brown

Once it cools down u can coat it with cinnamon sugar or even use chocolate for glazing

If ur using breadmaker... add ur ingredient according to ur machine instruction..
