How to make coconut donut

  •  In a large bowl, mix the warm water, yeast, and a teaspoon of sugar. Stir and let stand for 5 minutes, until the mixture is foamy.

  • 2 Add the rest of the sugar, milk, butter, egg and salt. Start adding the flour little by little while stirring, adding just enough until the dough comes together in the center of the bowl.

  • Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. To knead, use the palms of your hands to push the dough down and away from you, then fold it in. Push the dough out again, then fold it over. Repeat the operation until the dough is well kneaded.

  •  Form a ball with the kneaded dough. Put it in a bowl and cover it with a clean towel. Let it rise for 1 hour and a half until it doubles in size.

  • Once it has risen, divide the dough into 2 equal portions. On floured board, roll out one portion to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a 3-inch diameter donut cutter to cut as many donuts (and holes) as you can from the dough.

  • Place the trimmed donuts, along with the holes, on individual pre-cut parchment papers, and place on a large platter or tray. Fold the piece over and roll it back up, then cut out as many donuts as possible. Repeat the operation with the other half of the dough.

  •  In a medium, heavy-bottomed skillet, heat about 2-3 inches of oil to 375 F. Carefully lower a few donuts at a time into the oil, peeling them off the parchment paper before cooking. Cook on one side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.

  •  Then cook on the other side for 1 minute or less, until golden brown. Drain the fried donuts on a wire rack set on a large tray, or on kitchen paper.

  • If you are going to glaze or dip the donuts, let them cool first. If you want to coat them in sugar and/or cinnamon, do so while they are moderately hot.
