Learn how to make donuts

200ml milk 10g granulated yeast (1 sachet) 400g flour 40g butter 1 egg 70g sugar pinch of salt oil for frying
Heat the milk gently, letting the warm (careful not to overheat, but the yeast does not grow). Mix the yeast in warm milk and let sit for 15 minutes.
After the rest, mix in the mixer - hook with bread - half the flour, butter, egg and sugar. As the ingredients are mixed with yeast, pour the milk and add the remaining sugar. Beat until smooth and add salt. Remove from mixer and knead on a floured surface to mass for a good five minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in warm place until doubled in size, which occurs in about one hour.
After the dough rise, return to floured surface and the dough with the help of a roll, until it is about 1.5 cm tall. Make the donuts with a cutter and holes in the middle with a smaller cutter *. If leftover dough, knead and open again to do some more donuts. Arrange the cut donuts on a form or plate dusted with flour and let them rest for 45 minutes, covered with damp cloth.
Heat oil in a saucepan and fry the donuts until golden on both sides. Place them on a paper towel to cool. Cover with icing e. .. Remember the Homer Simpson.
Makes about 20 donuts 8cm in diameter.
* If not a cutter, use a glass or cup big mouth. For the smaller circle, use a bottle cap.
