Ukrainian Doughnuts - Пампушки

Yes, those are the ones my son was making and selling to get some cash for his new bike. We got tons of compliments and tons of recipe requests. So, here it is, so simple - 13-year old who never cooks can make it!

Ponchiki - icing sugar

This is traditional Ukrainian treat, often made with different fillings - nuts, preserves, raisins. But we will start with the plain ones

The recipe is for 10 large pampushki:

1. Mix 1/2 cup of warm milk(30 C) and 1/2 warm water, add 2 tsp dry yeast, 4 tsb sugar, 4 tsp flour. Leave in a warm spot for 20 minutes

2. Once the yeast mixture raises and gets bubbly pour it into a large bowl, add 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 cup sunflower oil and 2 cups flour. Knead well. The dough will be quite sticky but don't get tempted to add extra flour.

3. Cover and leave in a warm place for about 45 minutes.

4. Dip hands in the oil and devide the dough into pieces 100 gr each. Or make them smaller if you wish. Roll the pieces into round shape. As the dough is quite sticky don't fight for the perfect shape.

5. In a large pot heat up sunflower oil plus we add some Crisco. Deep fry your pampushki on both sides till golden.

6. Once cooked on both sides - fish them out using the slotted spoon and let them drain in a colander layered with paper towels.

7. Sprinkle with icing sugar or icing sugar mixed with cinnamon. Enjoy!
