  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) instant yeast
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, plus 2 egg yolks
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) of softened, unsalted butter
  • 500 ml (2 cups) cranberry filling (see recipe below)

Preparation

Tip: once a step is done, you can click on it to cross it out and go to the next one.

  • Dissolve 30 ml (2 tbsp.) of icing sugar into warm milk. Set aside.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix the flour, yeast and salt. Stir in the egg, egg yolks and warm milk mixture until it forms a dough.
  • Add the butter and knead the dough for approximately 10 minutes on a floured surface.
  • Make a ball and place it in a greased bowl. Cover it with plastic wrap, and let it sit in a warm and humid place (for example, in the oven after it has been turned off), until the dough has doubled in size.
  • On a floured surface, knead and roll out the dough until it is 5 mm (1/4 inch.) thick. Cut out circles that are approximately 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter.
  • Scoop 30 ml (2 tbsp.) of cranberry filling into the centre of half the circles.
  • Add two cubes of Brie From Here on the cranberry filling.
  • Moisten the edges of the circles with a bit of water, and place a second circle over top of the first. Seal the two circles well. Repeat for the rest of the donuts. Let the donuts rise for 45 to 60 minutes in a warm and humid place.
  • Heat the canola oil in a cooking pot or a deep-fryer at 360° F (180° C), and fry the donuts for about 1 minute on each side, until they turn golden brown.
  • Let the donuts drip off on paper towels. Once they cool down, sprinkle them with icing sugar.

Cranberry Filling

  • Mix all of the ingredients in a saucepan, and let them simmer for around 5 minutes or until the cranberries start to pop. Let it cool.

Storage

  • These donuts can be kept for up to 3 months in a sealed plastic bag or a sealed container.

Accompaniments

Fruity and sweet

These wines are set apart by their sugar content. The dominant scent is fruity. Some are lighter (semi-dry), and others are more full-bodied (sweet).
