Pumpkin Doughnuts

Who can resist doughnuts especially kids right? It is such a sinful and rather unhealthy snack to enjoy which I rarely buy over the counter for the kids and of course I find it rather expensive to pay for a doughnut too! hahaha stingy Mummy :P Anyway it is really easy and simple to make some doughnuts at home and with added healthy ingredients like pumpkin up the nutritious value for this deep fried pastry :) 

Oooh so soft texture!

Cut out doughnuts before frying

  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl, mix well.
  2. Add in pumpkin puree, condensed milk, butter and egg yolk and mix well.
  3. Gradually add in water and knead till a smooth dough is formed. Continue to knead till dough is soft and elastic.
