Heart Shaped Donuts


1000g all-purpose flour
11g (1 packet) dry yeast
340g (1 1/2 ) cups warm water
60g (2/3 cup) milk powder
2 eggs
180g (1 cup ) butter
60g (6 tbsp) castor sugar
5g (1 tsp) salt
14g (1 tbsp) baking powder
Icing sugar
Chocolate Rice / walnuts (optional)

Mix dry yeast and 1 tbsp sugar with warm water. In another bowl combine the eggs, butter, sugar , salt and mix well. Add the sifted baking powder, milk powder and flour into the bowl and after that knead for about 5-10 until it turns into a smooth shiny ball. Leave the ball of dough in the mixing bowl in a warm place. Cover with a damp, clean towel. Wait for the ball to expand twice its size. It takes only 30 minutes on a hot afternoon. Otherwise, wait further. The dough is ready when the indent you make does'nt spring back. Punch the big ball of dough. This is to remove air. Then, knead a bit and roll out to a floured surface. Gently roll dough 1cm thick with floured rolling pin. Cut with heart shape cutter. Keep a distance from each other. The dough will rise further. leave for about 30 minutes. You may end up with some leftovers tiny balls from the cutter. Keep them for frying as well. Fry until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain with kitchen towels. While the donuts are still hot dip into the icing sugar coating. For icing topping, mix the sugar with the water and stir. Then, dip half surface of the donut into the mixture. Finally sprinkle the chocolate rise or walnuts on the surface. Ready to serve.
