The other day, my family and I had a huge craving for something sweet. Nothing in the fridge but a few eggs, yogurt and Dr. Oetker strawberry sauce waiting to be used. I immediately started to think of delicious and light donuts recipe which I forgot about until I saw a recipe for donuts on my fellow blogger`s site a few days ago. The decision was made so I started mixing up the ingredients. These donuts are fried in deep oil so I was a bit concerned about the calories but it`s not if we`re like eating fried food all the time. And it is a scientifically proved fact that when it comes to tastes, women have a preferance for sweet and greasy foods as opposed to men who like salty and sour food. So you see, it`s not me, it`s the evolution. :)
Now, let`s check out the recipe...
200 g yogurt
pinch of salt
2 tbsp sugar
10 tbsp flour
12 g baking powder
a few drops of strawberry extract and rum
confectioner`s sugar for dusting
chocolate or strawberry sauce
In a bowl whisk eggs and salt. Slowly add sugar, yogurt, strawberry extract, rum and combine. Add one by one spoon of flour and in the end baking powder and mix well.
Heat up oil in a deep pan (more oil is better, pour about 2 inches of oil from the bottom). Depending on the size you want your donuts to be, with a teaspoon or a tablespoon, put small amount of batter in hot oil and fry on both sides until golden brown. It`s better to fry only 5-6 donuts at a time so that the oil doesn`t cool down. Because the batter is kind of thin, you`ll get some pretty funny shaped donuts. The kids will love them.
Dust your donuts with icing sugar and pour some sauce on top of them. Enjoy!
