I am so excited for today's post!!! Shelley and I have been so excited about Sourdough Surprises, and we are so excited to share our first reveal day with you! We have seriously been loving cooking with our starters, and hope that you do, too!
I think these donuts were an absolute perfect choice for our first challenge! They were quick and easy to make, and gave outstanding results!!!! They tasted A-Maze-Ing!
We made some normal sized donuts, and some holes, and tossed them in cinnamon and sugar, some in powdered sugar, and made a simple glaze the coat the rest. They were all delicious!!
Don't forget to check our brand new Sourdough Surprises blog to see what we are making next month!! We will have all kinds of awesome stuff for you over there! (Its still a work in progress, but we couldn't wait to share it with you!!
I am submitting these donuts to Yeastspotting, a weekly showcase for all things yeasty!
1/2 cup sourdough starter
2 TBSP oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup buttermilk (regular milk will do, too!)
oil for frying.
Prepare a frying pan with enough oil to fry in, and allow it to reach about 360 degrees.
Line a plate with paper towels and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
In a large bowl whisk together the starter, oil, egg, and milk.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, until they just come together.
Sprinkle some flour on your counter and dump the dough out of the bowl. Knead it gently 3 or 4 times until the dough comes together.
Sprinkle the top of the dough with a tiny bit of flour and roll out until it is 2" thick.
Cut your donuts out, reforming the dough back together as often as you need to.
Fry until golden brown, just a minute or two on each side.
Drain/dry on the paper towels, and then coat as you see fit - powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar, or glazed.
