I think from now on they will be seen in the North East corner of Indiana! They are very tasty.
I am proud of Tessa, she made these all on her own with only a couple tips from me. I think you will enjoy them.
Tessa says that her favorite part was whipping the egg whites so they formed "stiff peaks" and that she failed miserably in making them taste as good as they look in the picture, but hey she isn't her mother. (Tessa added that I think they tasted wonderful)
Holy Week Doughnuts/ Rosquillas de la Semana Santa
3 eggs, separated
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
zest of 1 lemon and one orange (we only had a lemon)
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups flour
oil for frying
cinnamon to taste
sugar to taste
1. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks. Slowly add sugar, milk and lemon and orange zest.
2. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they form stiff peaks. Add to the egg yolk mixture. Mix carefully. Add baking powder and flour. Stir until mixture is soft. Cover and let rest for 1 hour.
3. Cover the bottom of a heavy pot with 2 1/2 inches of oil. Heat to medium.
4. Rub some flour on your hands and shape the batter into pancakelike patties (about 2 inches across). Fry in oil on low-medium heat. Flip doughnuts about 1 minute after they begin to float, when they are golden brown, about 2 minutes total.
5. Remove from oil, place on paper towels, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon
