Honey lemon doughnuts

One day, I went the liberally, and I found doughnuts recipe book. Since then I got doughnuts in my mind.  I know there are 2 doughnuts shops in Wellington. But why not make it by myself.

I made honey lemon flavor doughnuts. 
I add honey and lemon zest into the soft buttery dough. It is very yummy itself, but of cause, honey lemon glaze is on top of the doughnuts.

Honey Lemon Doughnuts
(make 8-10)

Bread flour 300g 
Sugar 20g 
Yeast 5g 
Salt 5g 
Honey 20g 
Milk 170g (lukewarm)
Egg 25g
1 lemon zest
Unsalted butter (soften)30g

Honey glaze
Icing sugar 100g
Lemon juice 2Tabbe spoon
Honey 1.5Table spoon

In a bowl, combine glaze ingredients and mix well. 

1. In the stand mixer bowl, combine dough ingredients except butter.  Knead it for 10 minuets with dough hook attachment.  Add soften butter, and knead it until butter combined into the dough.

2. Transfer the dough into the oil sprayed container and put plastic wrap or lid.
Proof it 1 - 1.5 hours until it becomes double size.

3. Meanwhile, prepare 8-10 pieces (8cm square).
 Transfer the dough on the floured counter, deflate briefly. Using the rolling pin, Roll out the dough into 1.5 cm thick. Use doughnuts cutter or pastry ring, make doughnuts ring shape.
Place them on the piece of baking sheet.

4. Place them on the baking tray, and let them rise for 30 minutes.

5. Meanwhile preheat oil at 170℃ in the sauce pan or deep fryer. 
Gently place the dounuts with piece of baking paper. Take out baking paper with the tong. Cook them until becomes golden brown color, flip over and cook other side as well.

6. Cool them down on the wire rack. Once they get cool down, dip them into the glaze.
