Puffy Twist Donut: Easy treats for everyone!


It started from the moment that my sister turn on the TV, the picture of the golden fried donut was on the screen, and then she turned to me and told me that “I really want to eat donut.”.

And it’s Sunday morning, how can I let her down when there are a lot of time, ^_^. I took the flour and other ingredients, then after a little bit of kneading, resting, twisting and frying, I can give her what she ask for.
After that, my donut was gone in front of my eye!
I know that many people love donut, it’s a bit of childhood memory plus the love for fried food, haha. because I have to admit that I really love fried food, and I just can’t resist it!

This donut is easy to make (oh, you know me I don’t like anything difficult, >*

Puffy Twist Donut

Makes 8


Bread flour



½ tsp



Instant yeast




Unsalted butter

Oil for frying

Superfine sugar

Put the flour, the sugar and yeast in a bowl, whisk to combine, add and salt whisk again. Pour the milk into the bowl.

Use large spoon (or pastry scraper) to mix everything together, and knead briefly to bring all the ingredients together.

Take the dough out of the bowl and knead, you will see the dough will be elastic after about 2 minutes.

Add the butter and knead (see the picture in Hand knead bread making – How to) by using the heel of your hands to compress and push the dough away from you, then fold it back over itself. Give the dough a little turn and repeat. Put the weight of your body into the motion and get into a rhythm. Keep folding over and compressing the dough. Knead for 6-8 minutes or until the dough is soft, pliable, smooth and slightly shiny, almost satiny.

Put the dough into a light buttered bowl. Let the dough rise in a warm place until double in size (can be 1 hour or 1 hour and a half check often depend on the temperature).

Cut the dough into 8 pieces and roll into a ball, let the balls rest for10 minutes.
Roll each ball into a rope about 20 cm. long.
Twist each side of the rope into opposite direction (roll one side up, and the other side down).

Hold each end up, the dough will twist together.
Place the finished twists on the baking sheet, let them rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oil in a deep fryer to 170°C. Gently place the donuts into the oil. Cook until golden on both sides, then remove to drain on paper towels. Place the donut in the bowl of superfine sugar, turn to coat the donut with the sugar, transfer to a cooling rack placed in baking pan.
