Directions

SCALE AND MIX

Mix Westco Sup-R-Roll Yeast Donut Mix according to the directions on the bag for a small batch. Use your scale to weigh all the ingredients, including the water. Use your thermometer to determine the proper water temperature to achieve a finished dough temperature of 80°F. Let the dough rest for 45 minutes.

MAKE UP

Bundle the dough. Let the dough rest for an additional 15 minutes. Roll out and cut into egg shapes using either an Easter egg cookie cutter or a Bismarck cutter stretching the dough into an egg shape.

PROOF AND FRY

Proof in a medium dry proof box between 90°F and 100°F. Fry at 375°F for 55-60 seconds per side in BakeSense Palm Fry Shortening. Drain the donuts for 45-60 seconds. Let them completely cool down.

FINISH

Using yellow, purple, lavender, light green and blue food colors tint Westco Vanilla Dipping Icing to desired hues. After the donuts have cooled, dip them partially in icing heated to 110°F. Place remaining icing in pastry bags (one per color) and decorate the donuts as suggested on the picture above or as desired.
