With the launch of our brand-new Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Carb Killa Spread, we thought it would be rude not to provide all you foodies with a chocolatey-caramel recipe. Check out @fitfoodiefeed's Salted Caramel Donuts 👩🏼🍳🍩
Add 100g flour (leaving 55g for later), the sugar, the yeast and the salt to a bowl and mix.
Heat the milk for 30 secs in the microwave then add it to the bowl along with the butter, egg yolk + vanilla extract and whisk for 5 mins.
Cover with cling film and rest at room temp for 10-15 mins.
Stir in the rest of the flour (55g) and knead for 5 mins, then cover with cling film again and leave it to rise at room temp for 1.5 hours or until doubled in size.
Roll the dough out onto a flour dusted surface to around 1.5cm thick and cut into 5 circles. Place them onto a plate or tray lined with parchment and cover with a tea towel. Leave them to rise at room temp for 45 mins.
Pour enough oil into a deep frying pan/ wok to cover the doughnuts and heat to around 180°C OR so that a wooden stick fizzes slightly when you hold it in*.
Melt the spread in the microwave for 30-45 secs then make little slits in the side of each doughnut with a sharp knife. I tried piping the spread in but it worked better to just do a slightly bigger slit and pour the spread in off the spoon!
