How to Make Crullers (Twisted Doughnuts)


  • 1Melt butter in milk and cool to lukewarm. Place water in a warm large mixing bowl; sprinkle in yeast, and stir until dissolved; add milk mixture and sugar.By hand, beat 2 1/2 cups of flour in until smooth; mix in eggs, salt, and spices. Mix in remaining flour, adding a little extra if needed, to form a soft but manageable dough. Knead lightly 1 minute on a floured pastry cloth; shape into a ball, place in a greased large bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm, draft free place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch dough down, roll 1/2” thick on pastry cloth, using a floured stockinette covered rolling pin. Cut into strips 8” long and 1/2” to 3/4” wide.Meanwhile, begin heating fat in deep fat fryer.Cover with cloth and let rise in a warm spot about 25 minutes then twist strips several times and pinch ends. Fry at once. Drain on paper toweling.(Note: Never fry more than 4 crullers at a time and keep fat as near 375 F as possible, if too hot, crullers will brown before they cook inside.)While crullers are hot, roll in topping.
