Old fashioned doughnuts with chocolate glaze

I love doughnuts!who doesn;t.I fell in love with these fried beauties long ago i don;t remember when.But whenever i pass by a doughnut store i'm lifted off my feet by the amazing fragrances!!!So for our wedding anniversary last year i decided to try these.While the whole world is turning healthy and using more and more of their ovens, i decided to try these deep fried traditional doughnuts.Chocolate glazed too!

I can't think of anything much to say about these doughnuts i'll let the pictures speak for themselves!

The weather here in Chennai is fairly decent just right for some doughnuts but i would love for it to be more cold atleast winter should show its presence.Having kids around i seal the windows and doors by 5pm and then i'm pretty much playing bat and ball with mosquitoes.Those who are in India would know about our recent technical gadget - the electrical mosquito trap.

These doughnuts were a big hit especially since they were chocolate glazed.I made the balls for my LM chocolate glazed as well.Father and daughter were pretty much fighting over it!

I plan on making these for valentines day too because these are much easier to make and ofcourse look so professionally done that i wouldn't want to waste much time making something too complex.

You need :

Preparation time :  1 hour (preparing dough + frying)
Cooling time: 1 hr or more
Recipe adapted from Joy the Baker
You need

All-purpose flour 1 n quarter cup

Baking soda 1 tsp
Fresh grated nutmeg 1/4 tsp
Pinch of salt
Granulated sugar 1/3rd cup
Plain yogurt or sour cream 1/4 cup
Egg 1 large
Unsalted butter, melted 1 tbspn
Vegetable oil for frying
  • In a bowl, sift dry ingredients flourbaking soda, nutmeg powder, salt.
  • Whisk egg,yogurt and butter until they are well mixed.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well into a smooth dough.
  • Dust flour on the counter top, spread dough into a thick 1 n half inch layer and cut out doughnut shapes.I used 2 lids one large and one small to get the shape.
  • Deep fry the doughnuts and allow to cool.
For the chocolate glaze
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (or less as the cocoa powder already is sweet)
4 tablespoons cocoa powder ( cadbury drinking cocoa)
3 tablespoons milk or water
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract.
In a bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and cocoa powder.  Slowly stir in milk and vanilla extract.  Whisk until silky and smooth.  If you need make this a chocolate dip glaze, add a bit more milk to this.

Enjoy these beautiful doughnuts the same day or refrigerate them.
