Doughnuts with butterscotch sauce

Ingredients

Doughnuts

  • 700g Flour, strong
  • 50g Sugar
  • 200g Eggs, fresh
  • 15g Salt
  • 50g Yeast
  • 150ml Milk
  • 250g Butter, soft

Butterscotch sauce

  • 500g Sugar
  • 150g Butter
  • 1ltr Double cream

Method

Doughnuts

Step 1: Dissolve the yeast in the milk.

Step 2: Knead all the ingredients, but the butter, almost together. Then add the butter gradually.

Step 3: Knead dough for about 10-15 mins, until it comes off the sides and is nice and shiny.

Step 4: Spread onto a large plastic tray. Cover with cling film and leave to cool down in fridge (min 5 hours).

Step 5: Weigh out pieces of dough 20g in size. Roll into perfectly round balls and place with the navel faced down onto a silicon paper lined tray. The doughnuts can be made in advance and stored in the freezer. When defrosting, (tray needs to be covered) place in a warm area. When doubled in size they are ready to be deep-fried.

Step 6: Deep-fry at 170 ºC. Turning over once until they are nice and golden.

Step 7: Roll in cinnamon sugar and serve with the Butterscotch Sauce.

Butterscotch sauce

Step 1: Caramelize the sugar, then add the butter and cook until sugar and butter are completely combined, then add the cream. Bring to the boil.

Step 2: Take off the heat and cool down before consumption.
