Homemade Donuts

I remember the first time I made donuts, many years back, it was tedious , using a donut cutter to cut out the donuts. And the dough bits left behind after each cutting, have to knead them together and cut out the shape of donut. So much work involved. 
Today , I learned a new way of making donuts by just shaping into a round balls and letting the donut dough rest for 45 mins, once it has risen, use the pinky finger, poke through the center to make a hole. Let it proof another 15 mins and it is ready to go into the hot oil for deep frying. So easy peasy! Perfect texture. Soft fluffy and airy at the same time. When the oil heats up to the right temperature, the donut puff out beautifully.  A keeper for sure.
dredge through caster sugar when it is still warm..once cool the sugar will not stick on the donut

love the soft fluffy and airy texture of the donut
the donut was perfectly proofed and ready to go into the hot oil .Fire must be medium or the donut will burn easily.
first proofing of donut dough is 60min,
second proofing is 45 mins after shaping into equal balls proofing, 
one recipe can make 8 donuts
