Fleischmann's®
 
 
Ingredients
 
For the dough
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 envelope Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
1 egg, beaten
Filling: (Classic stirred Custard Recipe)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Coating:
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup caster or superfine sugar
 
Instructions
 

Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl, set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, add the milk and butter, microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm, but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F, butter does not need to be completely melted). Add the milk mixture and beaten egg into the dry ingredients, mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.

Knead onto a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer). Transfer dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size – up to 2 hours depending on how warm your kitchen is.

To make the filling by combine sugar, corn starch and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Add egg yolks. Stirring constantly, bring to boil over medium heat and boil 1 minute. Stir in vanilla.

Once doubled in size, turn dough out onto floured surface, gently knead 5 times to get air out. Shape dough into a flat disc and cut into 12 even pieces (use a weigh scale if you like). Individually knead each piece of dough, pinching sides together to create a smooth ball. Place rough side down on lightly greased baking sheet, evenly spaced for room to grow.

Cover the dough balls with a clean tea towel and leave to proof until almost doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 375°F, place a roasting pan full of boiling water on the base of your oven.

Once doubled in size, uncover and bake the doughnuts for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven, let the doughnuts cool for a few minutes then brush with the melted butter and roll in sugar. Fill a piping bag with custard, poke a hole in each doughnut with a skewer, then squeeze custard into the hole.

Best served warm.

Tip : You can make you own castor sugar by blending regular white sugar in your blender!
