These winter weekend mornings we would wake up only to spend a few very long and lazy moments of cuddling and craving for something delicious but not necessarily healthy. Mia loves doughnuts tons and I decided that it is about time to learn how to make them by myself. It took me few attempts to improve the recipe and the method BUT I can finally share with you this easy, fast, and delicious recipe for homemade doughnuts with chocolate filling.
Homemade doughnuts with chocolate filling recipe
For the donuts:
- 500g flour (250g self-raising flour – 250g coconut or almond flour)
- 2 eggs
- 250gr yogurt
- 1/2 ts baking soda
- вода – 1 к.ч. хладка
- 1/2 ts salt
- oil (for frying)
For the chocolate filling:
- 1 ripe banana
- 5 medjool dates (pealed and with the stones taken off)
- 1/2 tbs coconut oil
- 2 tbs raw cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
For the decoration:
- icing sugar, nuts, extra chocolate (whatever you like best)
Sift the flour and mix it together with the salt and baking soda. Mix the eggs with the yogurt and add them to the cup with the flour. Knead a soft dough and let it rest for 20 minutes. With wet hands, cut the dough into small balls, stretch and let them fry in the hot oil for 2-3 mins or until golden. Take out and place over a plate with tissue (it will absorb the extra oil from them).
When they cool down it is time to fill them with the chocolate cream. Mix in a blender all of the chocolate filling ingredients. If the mixture is too thick add some coconut or other milk until you get the desired consistency. Use a chopstick to make a hole in the doughnut and wiggle it back and forth and up and down. Put few tablespoons of the mixture in a piping bag, put the nozzle into the hole you just made a press gently to fill the doughnut with the chocolate cream.
You can further decorate the doughnuts topping them with icing sugar, nuts, melted chocolate, etc.
And now – indulge in the moment of taking the first bite and feeling the healthy homemade chocolate melting into your mouth! Delicious, nah?
