Crispy doughnuts with berries
• 1 kg water
This recipe makes approximately 3.5 kilos of dough. In addition, you will need vegetable oil for frying and caster sugar for coating.
Add the sugar-beet fibre flakes and yeast to 28°C-degree water. Leave the flakes to soak in the water for an hour. Add the sugar, salt and wheat flour. In a food processor, knead the dough for 5 minutes at a low speed. Add the soft vegetable margarine. Knead the dough for 5 minutes at a high speed. Add the berries and knead the dough for 1 minute at a low speed so as to keep the berries intact. Cover the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes. Roll out the pastry with a rolling pin into a sheet that is approximately 6 millimetres thick and 20 centimetres wide. Using a pastry wheel, cut the sheet into strips that are approximately 2 centimetres wide. Place the strips on a baking tray and let them rise for 30 minutes. Heat the frying oil to 180°C. Fry the doughnuts in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Cover the fried doughnuts in sugar.
