Orange Glace Donuts #FoodieExtravaganza

Orange Glace Donuts #FoodieExtravaganza

Ok, let me start by saying that I love donuts! Thank you, I needed that, I’m so happy to participate this month in the donut event for #FoodieExtravaganza and I’m sure you are too.

This is a great theme to have especially this month for me living in Southen California, the weather has been wonderful not too hot and perfect for baking, wich makes me so happy because I love to bake during the summer time. I know most of the donuts are fried but some people love to bake them and let me tell you those donuts are pretty delicious too.

Now let me talk about my donuts, I know that the title said orange glace, but, I decide also  to present them in a different way and add the orange zest to the dough, this addition will make the donuts tastier and with a delicious citrus flavor. I’m sure you will love the flavor and this is a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen with your kids and let them decorate and cover the donuts and those little fingers in gooey goodies.

July has arrived and that means it’s time for another #FoodieExtravaganza! Each month we take turns hosting and selecting a foodie holiday associated with that month. Somehow in all the planning July was overlooked so in a mad dash in the second half of June, Lauren of From Gate to Plate told us to celebrate the doughnut. If anyone is keeping score, National Doughnut Day is actually the first Friday in June, but none of us are complaining to be celebrating one of America’s favorite breakfast treats today. July is National Culinary Arts month so let’s just go with that. Also in July: Fried Chicken Day (today, the 6th), Blueberry Muffin Day (the 11th), and Junk Food Day (the 21st).

Instructions
  1. Heat 1/4 cup of the milk just enough, add yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar, cover and let it grow for 5 minutes. In the bowl of a stand mixer add, the rest of the sugar, butter, salt, cornstarch and dry milk, mix just to combine.
  2. Add the yest mixture and mix just a little, then add the egg and the rest of the milk, mix to combine, add in 3 additions the flour, if you have a hook for the mixer, use it and beat the dough for 8 minutes.
  3. If you don't have one, knead for 8 minutes. Then place the dough in a greased bowl and let it grow for one and a half hors.
  4. Once ready, heat up enough oil at 350 degrees in a pot, roll out the dough,cut the donuts, shapes and sides you like and fry 2 minutes on each side and place in a sheet with some towel paper.
  5. Have fun decorating the donuts, I made a mixture of 3 tablespoons of sugar with some orange zest to cover the sugar donuts.
