    Three dozen doughnuts. I mean fried doughnuts. Floaters! This is all that was left...........


    I want to remind folks why you want to always proof new yeast.....ROFLMAO. I always proof mine and still missed it. 

    Check out these sticky rolls.

    I don't know why I took pictures but pretty funny now. I didn't get an early photos but believe me they were the size of canned biscuits.

    I came back after messing around outside.


    I laughed about how fast they arose? rose? risen? Thats good yeast!

    I left and came back.


    Not too much so I quit worrying and covered them again with a towel......... and returned to making doughnuts.

    LOL.....You can't make this stuff up, I mean I took pictures and I didn't use the air compressor to air them up.

    Check out these sticky rolls......


    Maybe ya just can't see 'em good enough, let me give ya a better angle.


    They are so big and needing room they are shooting out the raisins!

    AND that is why you always proof your yeast! LOL

    Its nothing to be afarid of, you were afraid of sausage when you started too, right? You just familiarize yourself with the very basics and enjoy learning, No Fear! Its a lot cheaper to fail at than brisket or prime rib roasts, heck even chickens. LOL
    I kept thinking about the three stooges show where they stuck the temp probe in and it blew up the whole kitchen....LOL

    Ok, here's the recipe...... They are just light bread rolls with extra sugar and nutmeg. Fry 'em instead of baking them.

    Ingredients:

    1 pkg

    Rapid Rise yeast Fleishmans

    1 cup

    water luke warm

    1/2 cup

    sugar

    1 pinch

    salt

    1 pinch

    nutmeg

    1

    egg

    1/4 cup

    Criso shortening 

    3 to 3 1/2 cups

    All Purpose flour
     
    peanut oil
     
    GLAZE

    1/3 cup

    butter

    2 cups

    powdered sugar

    1 1/2 teaspoon

    vanilla extract

    1/4 cup

    Heavy cream

    Directions:

    Dissolve yeast in warm water in a warm bowl with a spoon of sugar and a spoon of flour. Allow to bloom 5 to 10 mins. (proof Yeast) Add salt, egg, and 3 cups flour after cutting in the shortening. Knead for 10 mins. Cover and let rise until double, 60 to 90  minutes. Punch down dough. Turn dough onto floured surface using hands pat down to about ½ to 3/4" thickness or roll dough 1/2-inch thick with floured rolling pin. 

    Cut with floured doughnut cutter, biscuit cutter, or just a clean old metal can. Cover and let rise about approx. 30 minutes. (up to 60)


    Heat peanut oil in deep fryer.

    Donuts float and DO NOT tell you when to turn them like hush puppies. Fry until golden brown, about 2 ½  minutes on each side (Or just look and check ‘em).

    Remove carefully without perforating, drain, I just drop on newspaper.
    Worry about glaze when you finish cooking the doughnuts.


    Glaze both sides to prevent becoming stale


    CREAMY GLAZE:
    Heat butter until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in cream till you are happy with consistency.
    Add Chocolate chips for chocolate glaze, but cover with clear coat first. Add maple extract for a variation.

    Looks great! And per our discussion, the Egg is just for Flavor and Richness. Allergy folks can skip it with little impact. The Crisco is the Tenderizer. The recipe will work as is or substitute Butter for some of the shortening to add back flavor...JJ

    And the sticky buns! Awesome!

    We don't eat too many sweets, but the next time we do, I'm for sure going to try the doughnut recipe.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you Chef

    I just wanted to confirm with a real chef. I know some breads use eggs and some don't and usually from what I had seen it involved the lightness of the bread. Thank you.
    Thanks Al

    If you had swallowed some of that bun dough you'd have more than a plumbing problem. Good thing you didn't use that yeast in making beer LOL Need my address I see donuts still left?

    <Chuckles> It would like eating a balloon. I think they are too stale now for anyone to want 'em.

    Nothing like something good from left overs and I'm sure there will be whiskey sauce to top off that bread pudding.  [​IMG]
