Apple Pie Doughnuts! Yum!

Directions

  1. First, make the dough - whisk together the milk, yeast and sugar and allow to bloom for around ten minutes.
  2. Add the eggs and whisk then add the flour and salt. Keep kneading until you have a smooth but sticky dough, then knead in the butter. Place in a greased bowl and cover with a wet tea towel, then leave to rise somewhere warm until doubled in size. Meanwhile crack on with the rest of the things!
  3. In a pan toast the pecans along with sugar and butter. Keep stirring over a low heat until the nuts are smelling delicious and a sticky caramel has coated them - pour onto a lined baking sheet to cool.
  4. To make the apple filling cook the apples with the water, butter, cinnamon and sugar until soft. Mix the cornstarch with the water to make a paste then add to the apple mixture. Bring to a simmer to thicken then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  5. Hopefully the dough will have risen by now - divide it into 12 equal sized pieces (they should weigh roughly 70g). Roll them into little balls and place them on a lined tray. Cover and let them double in size.
  6. Whisk together everything for the cinnamon/apple sugar.
  7. Heat a large pan of vegetable oil to 150°C. Gently pop each doughnuts in batches of three and cook for around 2 - 3 mins on both sides, then toss each one in the cinnamon apple sugar. Leave to cool on a rack.
  8. Heat all the ingredients for the caramel in a pan until bubbling - test between two fingers (allow to cool a bit first, obviously) to see if the sugar has dissolved properly.
  9. Pipe the apple mix into the centre of the doughnuts (use a knife to cut a little hole first).
  10. Cover with caramel and sprinkle with nuts.
