Put a little flour, granulated sugar, salt and instant yeast into a deep bowl. Blend by your hand. Add butter into the bowl. Knead the mixture with your hands. Break an egg onto the mixture. Pour milk. Add flour little by little. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes until smooth. The dough should be very soft and slightly tacky, but not sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for about 60 mins until doubled in size.
Then, sprinkle flour onto kitchen counter. Put the dough onto the counter. Roll out the dough to about 7 mm thick. Cut out donuts with a donut cutter (see pic above). Dough scraps (and holes) can be re-rolled and cut. On the other hand, sprinkle flour onto a tray. Place the ring dough onto tray and cover. Let rise for 1/2 hour, or until just about doubled in size.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook each side of the doughnuts until golden (One minute can be enough). Donuts should be lightly golden. Take the donuts on to a plate and leave to cool.
On the other hand, melt the chocolate with Bain-Marie method.
What is Bain-Marie Method?
One container with chocolate to be cooked is placed in another, larger pan containing water that is at the simmering point. This method of cooking surrounds the chocolate with very low heat. So the chocolate melts during the time. This cooking method is also used for custards or white sauces.
A bain-marie cooking method is also known as a water bath or double boiler.
Leave melted chocolate to cool. Put the doughnuts into melted chocolate immediately. Then, put the chocolate donuts onto coconut, green powder peanut, chopped almonds or colored sugar. Place the donuts on a serving plate and serve with coffee or tea.
