Thyme Ring Doughnuts with Orange glaze

Recipe Courtesy @Robertsonsherbs&spices


Doughnut dough:
  • 500g bread flour
  • 2 tsp Roberton’s Dried Thyme
  • 55g castor sugar
  • 10g (1 sachet) instant yeast
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 100g melted butter
  • 3 egg yolks

Orange and thyme glaze
  • 2 cups (500ml) icing sugar, sifted
  • 2-3 tbsp orange juice

  1. To make the dough, combine all the dough ingredients to form a soft dough.
  2.  Knead for 8-10 minutes or until smooth.
  3. Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
  4. Sprinkle a clean surface with cake flour and roll the dough out to 1cm thick.
  5. Use a 8cm cookie cutter to cut out rounds then use a shot glass to cut a hole out the middle.
  6. Place the rings on a greased baking sheet, leaving enough space for the dough to rise.
  7.  Cover loosely with clingwrap and leave in a warm place until doubled in size.
  8. Heat the oil in a pot or deep-fryer until 180C (a cube of bread dropped into the oil should brown within 5 seconds), working in batches, fry the risen doughnuts on one side (about 3-4 minutes) until golden, then turn them over and cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Remove the doughnuts from the oil and drain on paper towel. Allow to cool completely.
  10. To make the glaze, combine the icing sugar, zest and enough orange juice to form a thick glaze.
  11. Dip the tops of the doughnuts into the glaze and allow to set.

Enjoy !
