Ring doughnuts

by | Jan 22, 2021 | Breads, buns & biscuits

Sometimes even the tiniest thing is enough to make us feel all right for a moment. To me, biting into a doughnut is one of those things. While not a healthy dessert, jam or ring doughnuts are wonderful occasional treats. They practically melt in your mouth when you take a bite, and even though they do take a bit of time, it’s so worth the end result.

These versatile deep-fried dough balls have come to take on many different forms. There are countless variations from cake to glazed to cream-filled, and every donut shop around the world puts their own creative spin on their specific creations.

Despite the wide range of opportunities to purchase any kind of doughnuts you have a desire for, I prefer homemade doughnuts, which are not glazed, not decorated, just as simple as possible. I came across the following ring doughnut recipe in a Transylvanian cookbook, these doughnuts are classic and delicious.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

If you are looking for a Hungarian recipe that hasn't been published on this website yet, let me know, and I'll do my best to post it.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
