After the struffoli recipe, here's another one vegan dessert for our Carnival. Very tasty, soft and with a sweet filling, the Donuts or even said Donut, of Austrian origin, it is the typical Carnival dessert of Trentino Alto Adige. Usually fried, we offer it to you baked en to make you lick your fingers but remaining light and above all green.
- 300gr of flour
- 60 gr of oil
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- ½ glass of soya milk (or rice)
- grated zest of 1 lemon
- 1 pinch of salt
- 50g of brown sugar
- icing sugar
- seed or olive oil
- 250g of organic (or homemade) jam to taste
- a stick of brewer's yeast
First we do dissolve the yeast in warm milk with a teaspoon of sugar. In the meantime, pour the flour (previously sifted) into a fountain on a surface, add the oil, a pinch of salt, the zest of lemon, vanillin, sugar and finally the yeast dissolved in milk.
We work all the ingredients, kneading well until a compact dough is obtained, we flour it and cover it until it has risen (at least a couple of hours in a warm environment).
When it has doubled, take the dough back and knead it again. After having worked it once again well, we roll it out with a rolling pin or even simply with the help of our hands until a sheet of at least 2 cm is obtained.
Now we have to derive gods discs of dough, then with the help of a glass we make circles on the pastry. One by one we place them on a cloth and let them rest for at least an hour.
After the time has passed, we take a disk and it brush with a little water. In the center we put a generous spoonful of jam and cover with another disk, trying to close the edge to make them adhere well.
We continue like this until we have finished the pastry.
We preheat the oven to 180 degrees. We grease a pan with a drizzle of oil and place our donuts on the bottom leaving a little space between one and the other and bake at 180 ° for at least 20 minutes
Once cooked, the donuts should be lightly browned, sprinkle them with icing sugar obtained by blending the brown sugar.
Lukewarm are great
Buon Appetito and Happy Carnival!
