Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Donuts

Method

1

Add 100g flour (leaving 55g for later), the sugar, the yeast and the salt to a bowl and mix.⁣⁣

2

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.⁣⁣

3

Cover with cling film and rest at room temp for 10-15 mins.⁣⁣

4

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. ⁣⁣

5

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.⁣⁣

6

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*⁣.

7

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!⁣⁣

Note

*If you have the oil too hot they will blacken instantly as I experienced on attempt #1... but if they’re not fully cooked the dough will be raw in the middle as experienced on attempt #2 🙃 If you’re a baking amateur, double up, try frying a couple and adjust times/temps as necessary!
