There are many funny theories about the origin of the donut. According to one of them, donuts were invented by the Danish sailor Hanson Gregory. He was on watch and ate a sweet pie. Suddenly a storm arose, and the captain had to take the steering wheel with both hands.
Finding nothing better, he slipped his pie onto the steering wheel handle. In fact, the shape of the classic donut is most likely due to the fact that the dough with the hole fries faster and more evenly. But if the donuts are small, then it is quite possible to do without it.
In Soviet times, the recipe for this delicacy was probably in every housewife’s notebook. My grandmother once baked delicious donuts on condensed milk. I still remember how much joy these delicious golden balls brought us, little ones!
A can of condensed milk, 2 eggs, some flour, and a treat with the taste of childhood is ready! Its preparation will take 5-6 minutes from your strength, and the result will be appreciated by both adults and children.
Condensed milk donuts
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 2 eggs
- wheat flour – as much as the dough takes
- a pinch of salt
- soda on the tip of a knife
- odorless vegetable oil for frying
- icing sugar for decoration (optional)
- Beat the eggs, add the condensed milk, mix and add salt and soda, then gradually add flour until you have a soft, well-stretching, slightly sticky dough.
- Roll out a finger-thick sausage. It is advisable to do this on a dry table, that is, do not use flour, because if you roll it on flour, its particles will remain on the donuts and it will burn when frying.
- Cut the sausage into 2-3 cm pieces and roll them into balls.
- Pour odorless vegetable oil into a frying pan, heat it up and fry the balls on all sides until cooked over low heat. Over high heat, donuts will burn on the outside and remain moist on the inside.
- Garnish the donuts with powdered sugar if desired.
- Lush donuts on condensed milk are ready. Enjoy your meal!
