Doughnuts with Rose Syrup & Rosemary Flowers

Doughnuts with Rose Syrup & Rosemary Flowers

By: Raquel Neofit

These doughnuts are soft like a pillow on the inside and crisp on the outside. Go easy with the rose water. It can be a little overbearing if you add too much. You need enough oil to fill a medium-sized saucepan to about 7cm up the side.

Recipe


Ingredients

  • 1 packet dried yeast
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 2/3 cups warm water
  • Grape seed oil or oil of choice, to fry
  • 3⁄4 cup sugar syrup
  • 1-2 tsp rose water, to taste
  • Rosemary, flowers to garnish

Method


  • Combine 1/3 cup water and yeast. Set aside for a few mins to activate.
  • Add mix to the flour, add salt and slowly pour in more warm water, whisking as you go, until it reaches a thick pancake mixture consistency.
  • Cover with cling wrap and towel for 1 hour or until almost doubled in size.
  • Heat oil over medium heat until a drop of the batter sizzles when dropped in. Using 2 spoons, scoop the batter with one spoon and push it off into the oil with the other. Repeat until you have almost filled the pan.
  • Turn the doughnuts a couple of times until golden and cooked through, drain on paper towel.
  • Heat the sugar syrup over low heat, add rose water and drizzle over doughnuts. Scatter over rosemary flowers.
  • Note: You will often find rosemary with flowers in greengrocers or your garden.
