Amazing Soft Center Filled Doughnuts

Fried soft center filled doughnuts with cream cheese frosting or melted dark chocolate filling. Using milk, yeast, flour and eggs.


A doughnut is a sweet dessert made with fried leavened dough with various toppings and flavors. Doughnuts made with high protein flour are less dense and more airy with yeast used as a leavening agent, which feeds on the present sugars and releases carbon dioxide. Hence, this results in raising the dough and making it light and porous. Whereas this is a biological process, in cake doughnuts which are more dense, leavening process is chemical; using baking powder (baking soda + an acid) as leavening agent, this neutralizes the base and produces CO2 gas.
