Homemade doughnuts (or donuts) covered in colorful sugar glaze make a Christmas meal downright fun and decadent.
Doughnuts are quite easy to make and ideal to play around with different toppings and flavors.
This classic, no-fail recipe will make perfect doughnuts every single time. Fry the doughnuts, two or three at a time, in oil for two minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Slightly cool the doughnuts before decorating.
“Sugar glaze is the crowning glory of these sweet treats,” says chef Winnie Wong, technical product manager of Philippine Foremost Milling Corp. “For a fun finishing touch, you can also drizzle doughnuts with melted white chocolate and add candy sprinkles or M&M chocolates.”
Your children can help decorate the doughnuts to create magical Christmas memories. They will enjoy working with the rainbow sprinkles and chocolate ganache.
“If you prefer a more elegant look, mix together instant whipping powder, fresh milk and food coloring. Transfer into a piping bag and start creating beautiful designs,” says Wong.
To make strawberry glaze, Wong adds, simply melt white chocolate compound with food coloring and strawberry flavor and mix well.
For chocolate glaze, melt dark chocolate chips compound in a microwave or double boiler. Heat up all-purpose cream in a pan. Combine cream and chocolate until smooth, creamy and shiny.
