Preparation of my Mardi Gras donuts
First, heat the milk and mix it with the sugar and a pinch of salt. Add half of the flour and mix well.
In a glass mix the yeast with warm water and add it to the milk / flour mixture. Finally, mix with the beaten egg, the remaining flour and the melted butter. Knead a few minutes. Cover with a cloth and leave to rest for 45 minutes.
Flour your work plan, lower the dough to donuts to a centimeter thick. With a punch, or a metal circle cut out rounds in your dough. With a small cutter make a hole in the center so that your donut has the shape of the true donuts.
