If there is any “small bite” kind of food, that is just perfect for any hour, those are donuts. It goes with anything – coffee, hot cocoa, milk, juice… At any time – breakfast, coffee breaks, lunch time, afternoon/midnight snacks… Have you noticed it? It’s just impossible to not like and enjoy a really good donut. Especially nowadays where is possible to find donuts with all kind of toppings and flavorings.

Dutch created them during the 19th Century in the U.S. – they called it ogoliekoek or “oil cake”. The first appearance of donuts appeared in a cookbook in 1803. But the shape of it was created by a man called Hanson Gregory, in 1847.

They are a type of dough deep-fried, ring-shaped and possible to be prepared with various toppings such as sugar, chocolate  – hummmm, chocolate! -, maple glazing. There are also filled donuts with fruits, cream, custard or others. And not only the ring-shaped donut is commercialized but other shapes too: balls, flattened spheres, twists among others.

I bring you a slightly healthier version of donuts; they’re not deep-fried but baked in the oven. This way you can eat more than one without feeling the guilt. Also, kids can have them too – it’s a success for birthday parties!


Se existe algum tipo de comida que seja perfeito para qualquer hora, esses são os donuts. Vai com tudo – café, chocolate quente, leite, sumo… A qualquer hora – ao pequeno-almoço, pausa para o café, hora do almoço, lanche ou petisco da meia-noite… Já repararam? É impossível não gostar e apreciar um bom donut, especialmente onde é tão fácil de encontrar os mais variados tipos hoje em dia.

 Foram os holandeses que criaram os donuts no século XIX, nos Estados Unidos – eles chamavam ogoliekoek ou “bolo oleoso”. A primeira vez que donuts apareceram num livro de receitas foi em 1803, mas a forma foi criada por um homem chamado Hanson Gregory, em 1847.

São uma massa frita, com a forma de anel e é possível ter a mais variedade cobertura como açúcar, chocolate – hummmm, chocolate! -, xarope… Também existem donuts recheados com fruta, creme, entre outros. E não apenas os anelares são famosos, mas também outras formas são comercializadas como bolas, esferas espalmadas, tranças, entre muitos outros.

Trago uma receita um pouco mais saudável já que estes não são fritos mas feitos no forno. Deste modo é possível comer mais que um sem o sentimento de culpa. E os miúdos também os apreciam bastante – são um sucesso em festas de aniversário!

(Makes 10 – Faz 10)

180 g flour | 180 g de farinha
40 g sugar | 40 g de açúcar
2 g yeast | 2 g de fermento de padeiro
2 Tablespoons butter | 2 Colheres de sopa de manteiga
1 Egg | 1 Ovo
60 ml of semi-skimmed milk + to brush | 60 ml de leite meio-gordo mais um pouco para pincelar
20 ml yogurt  | 20 ml de iogurte natural
Lemon zest | Raspa de limão

In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar and yeast. Add the butter melted, the egg, milk, yogurt and the lemon zest.
Num recipiente, misturar a farinha, o açúcar e o fermento de padeiro. Adicionar a manteiga derretida, o ovo, o leite, o iogurte e a raspa.

Mix everything well and knead the dough for some minutes. Cover it with a towel and leave the dough in a warm place for about 1 hour.
Misturar tudo e amassar durante uns minutos. Tapar a massa com um pano e deixar levedar num sitio quente, cerca de 1 hora.

Knead the dough again. Roll out the dough and cut with cookie-cutters 10 circles – with around 4 to 5 mm of thickness. Place them in a tray with parchment paper. Cut the inside circles to give donuts a ring-shaped with a smaller cookie-cutter, (you can always use a donut shaped tin). Leave them to rise again for about 40 minutes. Pre-heat the oven (190º C).
Amassar a massa novamente. Esticar a massa e com um cortador de massas cortar 10 discos – com cerca de 4 a 5 mm de espessura. Colocar os discos num tabuleiro, espaçados entre si. Com um cortador de massa mais pequeno, cortar um pequeno disco no centro, dando a forma de um anel ao donut. Deixar crescer durante 40 minutos. Pré-aqueça o forno (190º C).

Brush them with more milk and cook them for about 8 to 15 minutes until big and achieved a golden look.
Pincelar os donuts com leite e levá-los ao forno cerca de 8 a 15 minutos.

To decorate them, you have to use your imagination and be creative – after all, everything’s possible! I used some chocolate to do some drawings… Have fun!
Para decorá-los, tem que usar a imaginação e ser criativo – afinal, tudo é possível! Eu usei chocolate e fiz alguns desenhos… Divirtam-se!
