Double Chocolate Doughnut With Almond Praline

DOUGHNUTS!!! I guess no one could ever resist doughnuts. I have actually tried a few doughnut recipes and haven't found a perfect one before this. So, I think I have to thank Elin for sharing this great recipe. Yes, Elin, it tastes excellent...just like Krispy Kreme!

Ingredients :

(A)
130ml milk
2 tspn yeast
1 egg, lightly beaten

(B)
200gm bread flour
60gm all purpose flour
50gm cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp instant coffee powder
1/2 spn salt
1-1/2 tbsp sugar
25gm butter

Topping :

150gm chocolate, melted
1 cup almond praline, crashed

Method :

- combine ingredients (A) and leave to rest for 10 mins.
- then combine (A) into (B) and mix untill well combined.
- leave to proof for 1/2 hour and then chill for 1/2 hour.




- flatten the dough, shape the dough out with doughnut mould.
- then leave to rise for 1/2 hour and then deep fry the dough untill golden brown.
- leave cool then decorate cool doughnuts with melted chocolate and almond praline.

I have actually made two batches of doughnuts. One is plain and the other one is chocolate flavour! Just as what my son has requested! He loves it so much. Well, I have to say I love it very much as well. So, enjoy!

lululu said...

As far as I love doughnut so much, I've never thought about making it at home. My closest try was to baking them. :P
Yours look awesome. I can never resist that thick layer of chocolate!

3 hungry tummies said...

I can imagine you kids fighting over those delicious looking treats!

penny aka jeroxie said...

wah! love it. I want them all.

My Little Space said...

sKucing : Thank you! You should try something new, dear!

Reeni : You're always welcome!

Lynd : You don't need a deep fryer to fry them. Just preheat a sauce pan, filled in 1/3 of cooking oil. Will do! Make sure the oil is hot when you throw in the dough!

Cheah : No woories, they're almost the same if the coating is there!

Angie : Yeah, it is indeed! Thanks!

Chef : Thanks! Hope you'll enjoy it as well!

TLSpoon : Haha...neighbour! I move over or you? hehe... Just blaughing!

Fimere : Merci, dear!

HH : Don't worry! Frying doughnuts not a problem at all.

Belinda : Thanks alot!

Lululu : Me too!

Wendy : Yeah, very tasty!

3HTummies : No fighting! I have lots to feed them!

Penny : You're always welcome, dear!

Thanks for stopping by guys! Hope you all have a great day!

Cheers, Kristy

No... what I meant with cakey is .. it taste more like cake than bread, right??

Bakericious said...

Kristy, the donuts look so yummy, drooling when just looking at them. my daughter loves chocolate donuts, may b I shall consider to make for her but think about the deep frying... I ever baked donuts but no so successful :P

My Little Space said...

Wendy : Yeah, I know what you meant! But I don't think it's cakey. It taste much much fluffier & softer than the usual one though. There's no dunkin' doughnut or Krispy Kreme over here. So, have to make my own! Thanks!

Bakericious : I used to bake my doughnuts too, yet I still feel that deep frying one taste much better. Probably, I'll try baking them as well.

Hey Ladies, thanks alot for visiting. Hope you have a great day!

Regards,
Kristy

tigerfish said...

Double chocolate ! Yes...one for me, please.

Kumi said...

I bet it's (was?) better than Krispy Kream! Nothing beats a home made! :-)

Claudia said...

Well, I just gained 8 pounds. Who could resist those delectables? not me!

pegasuslegend said...

wow these are awesome you need to open a bakery and ship here!

Jeannie said...

Wow, your donuts sure looks good! Very nicely proofed...how did you manage to get them into the fryer without deflating them?

My Little Space said...

Tigerfish : No poblem! Make it a dozen!

Kumi : You're right! Best to eat them fresh!

Claudia : OMG, 8 pounds! I'm going to cry for sure! Frankly dear, you need a little work out and of coz self control! It's good for your health. Do take care!

Claudia(P) : Oh, thank you so much for your kind words!

Jeannie : The dough is soft but still pickable. Or you may use a cake scraper to do the work! Don't worry. This dough recipe is the best, compare to many of them. Hope you'll enjoy it!

Hi guys, thanks alot for stopping by. Hope you all have a fantastic day!

Best Regards,
Kristy

My daughter will love you to bits for this. She's crazy over doughnuts. I looked at her in horror when she bought a dozen Krispy Kreme some time ago. That was incredilbly expensive! You can buy a truck load of doughnuts back home!! Kristy, you can start a dougnut business now :D Yours look amazing.

Laura in Paris said...

I have to keep my eyes closed ... those chocolate donuts look incredibly good but I am counting calories right now ...

Von said...

I've never made donuts before, but these sound so interesting- I love Krispy Kremes =] I love how your donuts are really thick. And the chocolate glaze looks delicious!

My Little Space said...

Mary : How wonderful! My son loves it so much that he actually ate 3 straight! haha....

Laura : You can't close your eyes, while your nose still working! hahaha....

Von : Hey, welcome on board! Hope to hear from you more often.

Thanks ladies for the visit. Hope you all have a great day!

Regards, Kristy
