Orange-Flavored Doughnuts Dipped In Honey Syrup
What You Need:
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, plus vegetable oil for deep frying
  • ¼ cup strained fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange peel
  • 2¼ cups sugar
  • 2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 2 tablespoons strained fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup honey

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a deep bowl, combine the eggs,¼ cup vegetable oil, orange juice, 1 teaspoon of the orange peel and ¼ cup of sugar. Beat vigorously with a wire whisk or spoon until the mixture is smooth.

    2. Then, beating constantly with a spoon, sift in 2 cups of the flour and the tablespoon of baking soda, and continue to beat until the mixture is thick enough to fall from the spoon in a wide, slowly dissolving ribbon.

    3. Cover the bowl with a towel and set the dough aside to rest for at least 30 minutes.

    4. Meanwhile prepare the syrup in the following fashion: In a small, heavy saucepan, bring the remaining 2 cups of sugar, the water and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

    5. Cook briskly, uncovered and undisturbed, until the syrup reaches a temperature of 230°F on a candy thermometer. Reduce the heat to low, add the ½ cup honey and the remaining teaspoon of orange peel and simmer for 5 minutes. Then remove the pan from the heat and cover to keep the syrup warm.

    6. Pour vegetable oil into a deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan to a depth of 3 inches and heat until the oil reaches a temperature of 350°F on a deepfrying thermometer.

    7. Flouring your hands heavily, gather the dough into a ball and divide it into 10 equal parts. Shape each part into a 2-inch round ball, then flatten it slightly.

    8. Hold the round in the palm of one hand and punch a hole through the center with the floured index finger of your other hand (above).

    9. Deep-fry the doughnuts, two or three at a time, for about 5 minutes, turning them about with a slotted spoon until they are golden brown on both sides.

    10. Transfer them to paper towels to drain, and fry and drain the remaining doughnuts similarly.

    11. While the doughnuts are still warm, prick them in two or three places with the tines of a table fork. Then pick them up with tongs, dip them into the warm syrup, and serve at once.
    Serving Size: 10 doughnuts
