This is like a little fried bread. It has a crispy outside but the middle is so soft and fluffy. We love it for breakfast and each of us like it with a different topping. I like it sprinkled with caster sugar, my kids all love it smeared with nutella and my husband (and boys) love it with jam.
The mix makes a large amount. So when I make, we get to eat it for about 2-3 days before we run out. My kids get so excited when I make this, they absolutely love it for breakfast, they would eat it for lunch and dinner to.
It is quite easy to make, just follow my steps exactly. And my biggest tip, when it is time to shape them for frying, make sure your hands are slightly damp.
Anyway, if you would like to try something different, or you have had them before but have no idea how to make them, give this recipe a go, it really is good.
40g fresh yeast
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1kg plain flour
3 teaspoons salt
13g baking powder
500ml plain Greek yoghurt
Sunflower oil, for frying
Put 1 cup of the milk in a small saucepan, heat until lukewarm. Turn off the heat. Add the yeast and sugar to milk. Allow the yeast to become active, it will take about 10 minutes, it will foam up as pictured below.
Get two large freezer bags, open them up and spray cooking oil (canola) into the bags, this will stop the dough from sticking to the bag. Divide your dough in two and add each half to the freezer bags. Close the bag loosely. Place on a baking tray and put it into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to prove and double in size. This can now stay in the refrigerator like this for 3 days.
