M Donuts on Donut Day.The first Friday of June is National Donut Day. Bon Appetit!

Mention the word ‘donut’ to automobile enthusiasts and our first thought is usually not of the small, sweet confection. Rather, those of us with gasoline in our blood will imagine the billowing smoke, squealing tires and smell of burning rubber as a car tears circles into the asphalt. But as we are all currently spending more time at home than on the streets and not necessarily able to celebrate National Donut Day with a full-throttle donut, we can honour it by making Homer Simpson’s favourite doughy pastry instead. Here’s a tire-preserving recipe for all M enthusiasts to enjoy.

INGREDIENTS FOR 20 DONUTS.

  • 8 1/2 us fl oz milk 
  • 3 oz sugar
  • 1 cube of fresh yeast (or 2 packets of dry yeast)
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 oz Butter
  • 24 oz flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt

PREPARATION OF DONUTS.

First, heat the milk and dissolve the sugar in it. Next, crumble the yeast and stir into the warm milk. Then cover the milk/sugar/yeast mixture and leave to rise in a warm place. Now, melt the butter and whisk the eggs with a fork, then mix them together in a bowl. Next, add the milk/sugar/yeast mixture to the bowl and knead well. Then mix the flour and the salt and add it to the bowl by the spoonful while stirring. Now knead the dough for five to eight minutes.

LET IT GO.

To make the donuts nice and light, the yeast in the dough must ferment. This takes time and a change in temperature. The quickest way is to put it in a warm place. Simply cover the bowl with cling film or a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for 30 minutes – now the dough is ready.

WELL ROUNDED: DESIGNING THE DONUT.

If you do not have a standard cookie cutter, simply use a small round bowl for cutting portions of dough for each donut. For the hole in the middle of the donut, a glass with a smaller diameter, such as a shot glass is sufficient. Once you have cut all the portions from your dough, knead the remaining dough together and cut out further portions. Then leave the raw donuts to rise in a warm place for about an hour.

OVEN OR DEEP FRYER?

By deep-frying them, donuts turn out greasier and tastier than they do in an oven. To prepare cook them in a deep fryer, heat a good two litres of vegetable oil to 190°C in a large saucepan. Depending on the size of the kitchen utensil, add a maximum of three donut rings at a time to the hot fat and deep-fry them on each side for a good minute or until they are as browned as desired. To prevent the donuts from becoming too greasy, place them between several layers of kitchen paper immediately after removing them from the saucepan, and only then glaze them after the excess oil has been removed.

THE GLAZE: PERFECTION WITH M COLOURS.

Without frosting, a donut isn’t a donut. And without M colours, a donut can never be the perfect donut. Here’s how to create them:

In three bowls, mix 150g icing sugar with 40ml water or milk, a little vanilla extract and a small pinch of salt to make a glaze. Then mix in red food colouring to one bowl, blue to another and leave the final one white. Depending on the brand of food colouring and its intensity, you can achieve a lighter blue with a little white food colouring to match the M colours. Then glaze your donuts with the coloured mixtures, allow to harden and your M Donuts are ready.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. 

    The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.] 

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. 

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html
