Eden Grinshpan’s Chanukah Jelly Doughnuts
1 cup Whole milk
1 packet Instant yeast (around 3 tea)
½ cup plus 1 tea Sugar
3 ½ cups All purpose flour
1 ea Zest of a lemon
1 tea Vanilla
1 tea Salt
2 ea Egg yolks
1 ea Egg
6 Tbsp Unsalted butter, melted
Vegetable Oil for frying
In a small pot over low to medium heat, heat up the milk until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl with the years and a teaspoon of the sugar. Mix well and let sit to allow the yeast to bloom, around 5-8 minutes.
In an electric mixer with a dough attachment, add the flour, lemon zest, vanilla, ½ cup sugar, salt, 2 egg yolks, 1 egg, milk with yeast and start mixing. When things start coming together, add in the melted butter and mix until the dough forms a ball around the attachment.
Flour a clean surface, remove dough from the bowl and begin to knead. Knead until the dough bounces back when you touch it.
