Simple donuts from cottage cheese This recipe is usually called, although it still has the name of traditional curd donuts. Recipe has already been tested not on one generation and continues to win more and more fans. If you dig on the Internet, you can find a lot of positive feedback from those who have already tried to cook donuts from cottage cheese. In order to make the dessert the same as in childhood, you can get a recipe from your friends, and you can use the following tips for making donuts. So, for the preparation of donuts from cottage cheese it will be required:
- 2 eggs,
- 1.5 tbsp. flour,
- 3/4 tbsp. Sahara,
- 0,5 kg of cottage cheese,
- Vegetable oil,
- 2 tbsp. spoons of sour cream,
- Powdered sugar,
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda or baking powder.
You can prepare donuts in several ways. The first is to first mix the eggs, baking powder, sugar and sour cream with a mixer. Then add the curd to this mixture and then, introducing a little flour, we knead the average density of the dough. It should not creep, but it should not be too hard. The second option is that the flour is first mixed with a baking powder. In it, you need to make a small groove, which then is introduced cottage cheese, eggs, sugar, sour cream. Everything is mixed, and flour can be added at any time with one hand. There is practically no difference in these processes, but the second option is more preferable, since the baking powder will spread evenly over the dough, and in the first case it can settle on the bottom of the cup in which you are batching. As for the shape of donuts, you can experiment with it the way you want. The most common forms for donuts are balls and bagels. Having formed from the test the figures you like, you can start cooking. Depending on what recipe you use, fry donuts can be in vegetable or butter. Better - in the plant, as it does not burn so quickly in a pan. We pour as much oil as necessary to ensure that donuts are completely covered with oil and fried immediately from both sides. Once they get a golden hue, take the finished donuts out of the frying pan on the baking paper. This will help you get rid of excess fat on donuts. As soon as they cool slightly, sprinkle them with powdered sugar. It is best to serve donuts immediately after preparation. This is an excellent dessert for tea. Cottage cheese donuts with a filling As already mentioned, every housewife has her favorite donut recipe. Well, children love those with stuffing. The filling can be completely different: chocolate, marmalade, jam, jam, condensed milk and much more. Accordingly, and the ways of placing the filling in the donut are also different. If the filling is dry (fruit, coconut shavings, poppy seeds), then it can be immediately placed in a dough, and the donut will fry along with it. If the filling does not tolerate a temperature increase (chocolate, marmalade) or it is viscous and liquid (condensed milk, jam), then it is placed in the donut after roasting. But this only applies to large donuts. If your ball does not exceed 3 cm in diameter, then it is possible to put the stuffing even in a dough. In a short time, the filling will not melt, but the dough is already cooked. By the way, in order to prepare a dough, you can use the recipe of traditional donuts. Large-sized products can be cut and put into them stuffing, or you can enter it with a confectionery syringe.
A variety of donuts
The history of the appearance of such dishes as donuts,goes back to the past. His name came to us from Poland, and the first donut, which was called, was baked in the days of Frederick the Great in the fields of one of the battles. It is documented that even in the time of Ancient Rome there was a technology for creating food products, which in their kind and way of cooking reminded today's donuts. They were called "globules" and were small balls, fried in fat, which were then smeared with honey and sprinkled with poppy seeds. A few years later, already in the Middle Ages, in Europe, the so-called "krapfen" - bent in the form of the Latin letter "S" confectionery, started to be baked, which in the 18th century appeared again, but with a variety of fillings. To this day donuts are one of the most popular confectionery products in the world. Different forms, different origins and ingredients that are part of a confectionery product, influenced their name. To date, there are more than fifty names, which give fried pieces of dough fried. So, in Germany, donuts are called "berlinerami" and have a somewhat oblong form. And if in Russia donuts are fried completely (and do not require a revolution for roasting from the other side), then berliners necessarily turn over during cooking. Because of this, on both sides of such products have an even golden color, and along the lateral circle a clear white strip is visible. In America, there are donuts - Donatys. They are similar to Russian donuts in the form of bagels (the same rings) and fried with a full immersion in hot red oil. Well, in Hawaii there are "malasadas", which absolutely do not have any definite shape - ordinary pieces of dough are split off and immediately sent to boiling oil. Dutch donuts are called "pofersche", but they almost do not look like donuts. They are more like pancakes or even small pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar. Powder, too, was not always the main way to decorate a donut. In some countries, coconut shavings, poppies, sesame or grated nuts are used for this. In Italy, donuts resemble the Tatar national dish "firewood", and do not use them as a dessert, as is customary in most countries, but with a variety of sauces, washed down with wine and beer. The largest donuts - "picarones" - are made in Peru. They are so large that they are caught from the boiler with oil with a stick, picking up the very hole from the donut. French donuts "Bénier" are never baked with a filling, but can be either round or square. The country of the rising sun is very fond of experimenting with food, including donuts. In Japan, you can buy and try not only fried, but also baked donut. The most popular among European producers are still donuts from Poland. In Japanese restaurants and cafes you can see very original donut forms. Among them, donuts are daisies and even donuts-sausages. Well, the second option is clear, we already made it at the stage of making wheels, but chamomile can come from those parts that have been cut out from previous bagels. For this, we just press these circles together in several places to each other. If the first time you do not get a chamomile, then your household will still find in them a resemblance to a flower. As for the European donuts of the past centuries, the letter "S" will not be produced by everyone, because the recipe for their manufacture has not been preserved, nor are there any such molds that could repeat it. But do not get upset. To do this, you can turn to modern technology and independently make the shapes you need, by which you can "cut out" absolutely any figures. To do this, you will only need to type S on the computer, cut it out of paper and glue it with food film. Now for this pattern you can cut out any details, ornaments and even human figures. Most likely, it will take you a lot of time, but if you are preparing a surprise for your loved ones, it's worth it.
Options for the formation of cheese donuts
If you take the usual recipe for cooking cottage cheesedonuts, then it is not always possible to find ways of forming donuts. But sometimes you want to do something new, unusual. Often happens and that, having noticed some interesting form of baking, we can not determine on our own how to fold or mold the dough, so that the result is a heart, a shell or some other interesting object. In addition, many resort to baking only to pamper children or grandchildren who are surely tired of the same form of even deliciously cooked donuts or buns. So, what is the way to diversify the boring cookery? First, it is worth remembering the famous wisdom, which says that the main thing is not the form, but the content. Thus, you can easily guess that in whatever form you have served baking on the table, it will be just as tasty. The main thing is not to overdo it, because not every plan can be carried out easily and successfully. To begin with, having decided to experiment, formulate some new products, try how they will react to heat treatment and, if the result is successful, proceed to further manufacture. Traditional ball and bagel To begin with, if your fantasy is not very good, you will only need to master two basic forms for frying donuts: a ball and a ringlet. The first option is possible only by rolling a small amount of dough. To do this, you just need to remember how in childhood you sculpted crafts made of plasticine or clay. Although there is another way - to buy a donut car, but it's unlikely that you are so fond of these products to spend a lot of money on the purchase of such an assembly. Ring can also be made in two ways. One of them is to roll small sausages from the dough (remember the lesson at work in school) and fasten the two ends together so that a bagel turns out. But such a donut may not be exactly flat. For the family will go, but if dinner or tea guests are invited, then try to approach the process of forming donuts accurately. For this, in addition to the main ingredients for the test, we need ancillary. This is a rolling pin, a glass or a cup of medium diameter and a narrow glass. We begin by cutting a small part of the common piece of dough and rolling it into a layer, at least 1 cm thick. After that, using a glass or a glass, we cut the circles from this layer. They turn out smooth and beautiful. Now there is only a hole inside. It will help us make a glass. We try to cut the central holes as neatly and smoothly as possible. The resulting "pancakes" is sent to a skillet. Recipe for cheese donuts "Dream of childhood" Donuts from cottage cheese can be prepared with or without filling. In order for them to turn out exactly as you remember them from childhood, the following ingredients are needed:
- Curd - 250-300 grams,
- Sugar - 3 tbsp. spoons,
- 2 eggs,
- Lemon juice (vinegar) - 0.5 tsp,
- Soda - 0,5 tsp,
- Sugar powder - to taste,
- Vegetable oil.
Eggs beat up with sugar mixer or wellkneaded with a corolla. In this mixture, add cottage cheese, flour. Soda should be extinguished with vinegar or lemon juice (so that the dough is not too odorous). We spread the dough so that it is not too steep to be taken with a spoon. Pour oil into the frying pan with high edges, warm it properly. Take the dough with a spoon, dump the flour and dip it into boiling oil. Donuts should be completely immersed in oil. Finished donuts put on parchment, give them a little cool, and oil - drain. After this, in a separate cup, pour the powdered sugar and sprinkle it with donuts.
