simple but fancy baked donuts

For Children's Day! :)

baked donuts

(makes about 20 medium sized ones + holes)

3/4 cup full-fat milk
2 tbsp butter
7 g dry yeast / 50 g fresh yeast
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
3 cups flour

heat the milk with butter and mix until the butter is dissolved
put the sugar and yeast in a small bowl, add 2 tbsp of lukewarm milk/butter mixture and let the yeast start working for 5 min
beat the egg
mix flour with salt in a bowl, then add the yeast mixture, rest of the milk and the egg
mix the dough until it comes together , put it on a flour-dusted counter and knead for 5 minutes
let the dough rise in a warm place for an hour
knead it again and roll into about 1,5 cm/1/2” thick, cut out the donuts
let he dough rise for half an hour
bake about 10 minutes into 180C, until tops are golden brown

my version: sliced in half, 'topped' with caramel sauce and strawberries inside and a simple milk glaze on the top
