For those who love exotic desserts, here is a lovely coffee-flavoured choice. You will enjoy the fresh flavour of these homemade doughnuts, coated with a cappuccino mixture that has strong hints of coffee, mild notes of chocolate and a lovely lacing of cinnamon too. You can have these Cappuccino Doughnuts as dessert, or serve as a surprise treat to kids back from school. Or just have it with a cup of hot chocolate for no reason at all!
- Combine the dry yeast, sugar and 1½ tbsp of lukewarm water in a small bowl and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 30 minutes so that the yeast mixture becomes frothy.
- Combine the milk and butter in another small bowl, mix well and keep aside.
- Combine the plain flour and salt in a deep bowl and mix well.
- Add the dry yeast-sugar mixture and mix well.
- Add the milk-butter mixture gradually and knead into a soft and loose dough using water, if required.
- Add the oil and knead again till the dough is smooth and elastic.
- Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
- Sprinkle some plain flour on a flat, dry surface and roll a portion of the dough into a 175 mm. (7”) diameter thick circle.
- Dust the rim of the doughnut cutter with some plain flour and cut out 3 circles of 75 mm. (3”) diameter with it. Discard the centre round portion of each of the 3 circles to form a ring like shape and place them on a butter paper.
- Repeat steps 8 and 9 to make 8 more doughnuts till the dough gets over.
- Cover the doughnuts with another butter paper while avoiding any contact with them and keep them aside in a warm place for 2 hours.
- Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai and deep-fry, 2 doughnuts at a time on a slow flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- While the doughnuts are yet warm, dip them one by one in the prepared cappuccino mixture and roll them till they are evenly coated from both the sides.
- Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.
