My family loves doughnuts.We always buy form'd tried to make my own,but my doughnuts turn out hard, until I found this recipe from Alex Goh cookbook, and I try it.Wow!, this is a very soft doughnuts.Definitely a keeper.Want to try?, here's the recipe:
I adapted from Alex Goh's book.

300 gm bread flour(high protein flour)
200 gm plain flour
5 gm salt
60 gm sugar
20 gm milk powder
1/2 tbsp baking powder
31/2 tsps instant yeast

2 egg yolks
280 ml cold water

50 gm shortening

some melted chocolate.

Mix (A) till well blended.
Add (B) and knead to form a dough.
Add (C), knead to form a smooth dough.
Cover the dough with wet cloth and leave it to prove for 45 minutes, or till it doubles in size.
Here is how I prove my dough.
Mould it into a ball then let it rest for 15 minutes.
Roll it out into a thin sheet about 10mm thick, then cut it with doughnut cutter.
Place uncooked doughnuts onto a lightly flour baking tray and cover with a wet cloth,leave it to prove for 35 minutes.
Deep fry doughnuts in hot oil till golden brown.Dish up and let it cool.
Dip the cool doughnuts into melted chocolate.Serve.
