There is no question that donuts are really an irresistible dessert. These little rings are dangerous because it threatens our “controlled” and “disciplined” lifestyle since it makes you forget that you’re avoiding sweets and makes you ask “What is diet?” Well, no need to think about it anymore, just eat!
And right now we are going to make this delicious dessert which can easily be made in your house–the Milo Donuts! Continue to read on below to learn how to make this and see some trivia, along with tips and tricks.
What is a Milo Donut?
Doughnuts or donuts, in general, are a type of dessert food that is fried and is then partnered with various toppings, ranging from salty to sweet, such as sugar, chocolate, maple, strawberry, among others–and even peanuts.
It is traditionally made to have a hole in the middle of it, which is what is now called the doughnut ring. Nowadays donuts may also be interchangeable with a much easier form to make called donut balls or donut holes. For this recipe, we are going to make these doughnuts out of Milo, and topped with Milo!
Milo, on the other hand, is a brand of chocolate and malt powder which is mixed with water or milk to make a drink. It is a popular drink here in the Philippines usually associated with breakfast meals to power up your day, especially with kids who are into sports.
Aside from making it into a beverage, this powdered chocolate is a perfect ingredient to use for other recipes, and more commonly for desserts, because of its sweet chocolatey taste. And it is a perfect substitute for having a choco-flavored donut.
How to make Milo Donut?
To start, we have to keep in mind that we are going to do two separate processes. First thing you need to do is to make the doughnuts, of course. And then while you’re doing that or after doing that, you can then proceed and make the glaze as stated in the recipe, which is definitely easy.
To make things even more Milo chocolate-y, the donuts we are going to do are also Milo-based. When preparing the Milo donuts, it is recommended to have a donut pan available with you, so you can make those fun and exciting donut rings easier. But other manual methods can also be done, and you also have the option to roll them into munchkins instead to make things even more easier.
When frying the donut batter, it is generally hard to see if the doughnut is already cooked since it is already dark brown in color, unlike normal doughs where you can see when the dough is cooked because it turns golden brown. A good tip for this is to stick a toothpick in the middle of the donut, and if it comes out clean, the donut is done cooking.
While here are the most basic toppings recommended here in this recipe, the fun doesn’t stop there! There are various other toppings you can add for this delicious Milo donut, since this chocolate-flavored goodness can be partnered with a dozen other ingredients, after all. Here are some other suggested toppings you can opt to add:
- Choco sprinkles
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Crushed chocolate bars
- Cereal bits
- Crushed chocolate cookie sandwich
These are only common donut toppings, but if you want to go wild with it, feel free to do so.
