08 Aug Calabash Nutmeg Twisted Doughnuts
Pour the lukewarm milk into a large mixing bowl and mix in the yeast.
Add the flour, salt, sugar, egg, softened butter or margarine, cinnamon and calabash nutmeg. Mix until the dough has an even consistency.
Knead for 10 minutes.
Shape the dough into a ball. Cover and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces. Leave to rest for 5 minutes.
Roll into a rope, 10 inches long. When rolling, start moving one hand up and one hand down so the rope gets twisted.
Lift up the dough and turn it 3 or 4 times to give it a spiral look. Continue this process with the remaining dough.
Place on a tray and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
Heat the oil to 170°C in a pan.
For the topping: Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Gently put the doughnut in the oil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, turning from time to time, until golden all over. Then drain on kitchen paper.
Roll the doughnuts in a sugar and cinnamon mixture.
