Rosquinha Frita (Crispy Doughnuts)

(by Liliana Guimaraes)


4 T. flour, plus additional for the tray

8 T. sugar

6 eggs, beaten

1 c. milk

2 T. margarine, softened

1/2 c. vegetable oil for frying

For sugar syrup:

1/2 c. water

1/2 c. sugar

additional sugar for rolling

optional: coconut flakes

Mix flour, sugar, eggs, milk, and margarine, kneading into a dough.

Roll dough into a long stick, then break into smaller pieces, and twist.

Let them rise on a greased and floured tray in a warm place until almost doubled in size (15 - 30 minutes).

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat, and fry until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels.

For syrup: Heat water with sugar until dissolved.

When doughnuts are slightly cooled, dip into sugar syrup and then roll in sugar or coconut flakes.
