Marco’s Hot Italian Donuts with Chocolate Sauce
For the donuts:
375g self-raising flour
95g caster sugar
150ml vegetable oil (additional will be needed for deep frying)
For the chocolate sauce:
15ml double cream
2g of icing sugar
35g of dark chocolate
Mix the flour and 90g of caster sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mix and add the vegetable oil, eggs and milk. Mix until the batter is smooth.
Divide the dough into six pieces and roll into mini balls.
Fill a deep pan with 2/3 of the vegetable oil and heat until extremely hot. Carefully drop the dough balls into the hot oil and fry until golden brown.
To make the chocolate sauce, slowly melt the chocolate with the double cream over boiling water (ban marie), then add the icing sugar.
To finish, plate the chocolate sauce, donuts and sprinkle with the remaining caster sugar. Buon appetite!
