French Cuisine: Marveilles

French Doughnuts
29 Nov 2013 | From Sebastien of France

50g flour, 4 eggs, 100g sugar, 125g butter, 1 packet baking powder, a pinch of salt, lemon peel or a tablespoon of rum or Armagnac or orange flower water, icing sugar, frying oil

Put the flour in a mixing bowl, and make a well in the centre. Beat the eggs, and add them to the flour along with the butter, icing sugar, pinch of salt, and whichever flavoring you have chosen. With the tips of your fingers, mix all the ingredients together incorporating the flour little by little. Add the packet of baking powder. Knead until you obtain a smooth dough. If necessary, add a little more flour so that the dough will not stick to your fingers. Leave it to sit for 1 hour. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/2cm. Cut it into different shapes, such as rounds and triangles. Heat the oil and deep fry. When they are golden brown, take them out and place on a paper towel. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Eat and enjoy :)
