DOUGHNUT WREATH WITH CLOVER AMASI
SERVES 8-9 (MAKES 1 MEDIUM WREATH) READY IN 30 MIN
50g butter, melted 140g castor sugar 2 egg yolks 375g cake flour 1 ½ tsp baking powder ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda Pinch of salt ¼ tsp ground cinnamon 375ml Clover Amasi 500ml cooking oil for deep frying
1 Combine the melted butter, castor sugar and egg yolks in a mixing bowl. Mix well and set aside.
2 In a separate bowl, sift together the cake flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon. 3 Add half of the flour mixture, and half of the Clover Amasi to the egg mixture. Stir until just combined. Add the rest of the flour mixture and Clover Amasi and mix well. Set aside to rest for 10 min. Meanwhile, preheat the ������������������������ bottomed pan.
4 Place a few teaspoonfuls of the mixture into the oil. Fry for 5-6 min or until golden brown and cooked through, you'll know it's ready when the doughnuts start to float to the top. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Repeat until all of the mixture is used. 5 Make a variety of toppings to create the wreath; Clover Amasi glaze: mix 80g icing sugar with 15-20ml Clover Amasi and coat some of the cooled doughnuts. Top the other doughnuts with a dusting of edible gold dust or sieved icing sugar and some with edible gold leaf. To create a wreath, pack the doughnuts in a circle on a serving platter with a ribbon at the top.
