Rice Ball Donuts

— Chef's Note —

"Nothing beats a jelly-filled donut!" - Brock

These glazed, jam-filled donuts are brushed with white chocolate and rolled in shredded coconut. I use blueberry lemon fruit leather for the wrappers, but other chefs have used mint chocolate paper or fondant.

active dry yeast
1 packet active dry yeast
1 tbsp + 1 tsp water
3/8 cup + 1 pinch sugar
2 tbsp milk
sour cream
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tbsp + 1 tsp butter
egg yolk
1 egg yolk
1 pinch salt
baking powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour

— Instructions —

  1. Combine warm water, yeast, and pinch sugar in a large bowl.
  2. Warm milk and add to mixture.
  3. Gradually, add each of the remaining ingredients except oil.
  4. Cover bowl in damp tea towel, and let rise until doubled (about 1 hour).
  5. Punch down the dough and turn it out onto a floured surface. Knead to remove any air bubbles.
  6. Roll out the dough into a long rectangle (1/3 of an inch thick).
  7. Use a knife to cut the dough into about 10 triangles. Round corners.
  8. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (121 degrees C) until warm (about 5 minutes). Meanwhile, boil enough water to fit in a small round cake pan.
  9. Once oven has warmed, turn it off. Place cake pan with hot water in lower rack, and donuts on a prepared tray above the cake pan. Let rise (about 30 minutes).
  10. Heat oil in a large skillet. Oil is ready when the dough bubbles after contact and doesn't turn brown quickly (temperature should be aorund 350°F, or 175°C).
  11. Fry donuts until golden brown (about 1 minute each side).
