Donuts “grated” – because they grind butter, sugar and egg yolks.

We offer Mrs. Stefa’s census of grated donuts: simple and delicious, but not songs. “Grated” – that’s why it grinds butter, sugar and egg yolks. Very similar to the poppy.


  • 1 kg of flour
  • yeast stick (100 g)
  • half a liter of milk
  • half a packet of oil
  • 150-200 grams of sugar (depending on whether you want it sweeter or fresher)
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • half a glass of vodka or 2 tablespoons of alcohol
  • 8-10 yolks (or 8 yolks and 2 whole eggs)
  • vanilla sugar, grated lemon zest or orange peel

Grind the butter with the sugar until it is white, then add an egg yolk and rub to dissolve the sugar, add the vanilla sugar and the zest. Dilute the yeast with warm milk, add a tablespoon of sugar and a few tablespoons of flour – let it dissolve.

Sift the flour into a large bowl while the solution ferments; pour it into the flour. Combine 1 + 2 + 3, then in a bowl with flour add the solution and grated egg yolks with sugar, salt, add vodka and knead the dough. It should be gentle but stay behind with your hands.

Put a bowl of dough in a warm place to grow, cover with a towel. Walking on tiptoe.

“I make donuts like this: I stretch a layer of dough, then I cut a glass with a glass, I put it in the middle of the filling and I cover it with a second circle, and then I stick it around the perimeter. Or – to grind a layer of dough – to spread half of the “square nest” filling, for example, cherries, cover with the second half of the dough and cut fritters with a glass “. – Mrs. Stefa explains in her blog.

How to fit the volume 2 times: hug and make donuts. Place the donuts on the table, cover and let stand again, and only then fry. If left untreated, it will grow strong during frying and may break. Before frying, remove excess flour from each donut, especially from the bottom; then there will be less than burning in the tub.

The donuts should be fried in well-heated oil (180 degrees), but the fire under the bath should be small. The pan should be wide enough and preferably with a rough bottom, place a separator well under the bottom so that the heating is uniform. Add the carrots, cut in half lengthwise, to the jar of oil: it will absorb all the soot. There should be enough fritters for a frying session for them to float freely and grow a little longer.

Immerse the fritters in oil on the growing side (top), cover immediately with a tire for 2-3 minutes, and if they are fried on one side, turn them over immediately and no longer cover them. Remove the fried donuts in a tray lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. Fried and cooled fritters are sprinkled with “powdered sugar.”

“I especially like donuts with rose or cherry. But once they gave me a donut with (attention!) A banana, and it’s divine. So don’t be afraid to experiment. ” – adds the Galician blogger.
