Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a small saucepan, scald the milk by heating just until bubbles form around the edge of the pot; the milk should not actually boil. Remove from heat and whisk in butter to melt, allow to cool 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook. Bloom the yeast by sprinkling it over the warm milk and butter. Add the sugar and stir gently to dissolve. Let stand 10 minutes until foam appears, this indicates the yeast is active. Turn mixer on low and add the egg yolks then gradually add the flour. When the dough starts to come together, increase the speed to medium and add the salt. Stop the machine periodically to scrape the dough off the hook. Mix just until the dough is supple and elastic, about 5 minutes. Once smooth, turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 2 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour. If you have time, let rise in the refrigerator for several hours because chilling will make the dough easier to roll out.
  • Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2-inch thick and cut with a floured biscuit cutter or water glass, about 3-inches in diameter. Transfer to a greased baking sheet, and allow to rise again for 30 minutes. Heat 3-inches of vegetable oil or shortening to 375 degrees F in an electric fryer or deep saucepan. Slip doughnuts in the hot oil, top-risen side down, and fry doughnuts until golden, about 4 minutes each side. To keep the oil temperature constant, fry 3 at a time. Drain on paper towels.
  • Make the coconut cream as according on the packet and let cool. Chill 2-3 hours.
  • Fit a pastry bag with a small tip and fill with cream. Poke a small hole in the side of the doughnut and pipe the cream inside.
  • Mix icing sugar with enough water to make the glaze and dip each donut on it. Sprinkle with coconut.

    Have mercy Ahmed! Wonderful pics and just got to make them today..I ate one...saved one for breakfast and split up the rest for friends because they are unreal. I love the shape, the taste and not hard to make. Thank you so much. If I had kept them (and I hated to part with them) I would not be able to get on the scale for a month.
    You are the best baker. ^5^5^5 and I am not taking any of the 5s back.
