Chocolate Amaretto Blomberbloof
I call these "Blomberbloof" as a private joke. Not tellin' why. It's private. You may recognize the dough from an earlier blog of mine. This is my doughnut dough. Simply put, these little blomberbloof things are really just large doughnut holes dipped in a chocolate/amaretto glaze. They are tasty though...
2 cups scalded milk
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar, divided
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons yeast
4 eggs (beaten)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
7 cups sifted flour
1 cup melted chocolate chips
2 cups powdered sugar
2 T amaretto
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
milk (to consistency of a glaze)
1. Mix together ingredients for glaze.
2. Melt butter in hot milk, add 1 tsp sugar and salt. Allow to cool.
3. Beat in yeast, nutmeg, eggs, remaining sugar, and 3 cups flour.
4. Add rest of flour (dough will be sticky).
5. Knead for 5 minutes then allow to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours.
6. Roll out dough, cut into small circles.
7. Allow to rise for 30-45 minutes.
8. Heat oil to 365° and fry 1 - 2 minutes on each side or until brown.
9. Dip in glaze
Note: Even though this glaze was good, next time I think I'll make it much thicker and more chocolaty.
