How to prepare donuts of wine . As a child, at my parents’ house for Christmas, at dessert time, my sister and I were in conflict.

Do you know those boxes of assorted polvorones that are sold in supermarkets? Okay, so in those boxes, in addition to various polvorones , 4 snowdrops , a few marzipans , some  macaroons and puff pastries , there were 2 donuts of wine .

Yes, only 2, which was a problem, I clearly remember my mother mediating because one of the two of us wanted to get the donuts out of the wine without leaving anything to the other, it was only 2 !!!

Luckily this has not happened to us for years, we no longer have to fight to take the sweet, now we prepare them at home in a very simple way, so we have donuts of wine to give and take. If it happens to you like we do and you miss one more copy of these pastries so typically Christmas on your tables, you have to encourage you to prepare them at home.

The recipe is very simple and the result of vice. Both the texture and the flavor are as usual, the classics, super good, with the same aroma that we liked so much when we were little.

These Malaga-style donuts are a very tasty snack to put the finishing touch to a meal, or to accompany a hot drink. They are delicious and they are not complicated at all, so it is worth spending a little time to make some homemade wine donuts that have nothing to do with the commercials. Do you cheer up?

Preparation of the wine donuts

  1. We start roasting the flour. We put the flour in a wide skillet on the fire. With a wooden spoon we will be stirring as the flour is toasted. We have to regulate the temperature and stir constantly to prevent it from burning. This step will take us about 10-15 minutes. We remove the pan from the heat and let it cool before using it.
  2. We can buy the sesame already roasted or toast it at home in a pan for a few minutes.
  3. When the flour is cold we put it in a bowl sifting it. Sieving is essential because if you do not have any hard lumps left by the roasting. Add the sugar, anise and orange zest. We mix to integrate the ingredients.
  4. We add the lard that must be at room temperature, soft to work and the wine. With a fork we are incorporating the ingredients until we have some wet crumbs. With the hand we compact the dough and form a ball.
  5. We place the dough on a baking paper on the work surface and flatten it. Cover with a new oven paper and, with a rolling pin, stretch until it is 1 to 1.5 cm thick. It is a fairly sandy textured dough, so it is necessary that we compact the dough by the edges to tighten it, as we stretch it.
  6. With a large and a small cookie cutter, we form the wine donuts. We are placing them on the oven tray directly, without the need to grease it.

Baking and final presentation of the wine donuts

  1. We preheat the oven to 180º C 10 minutes before baking the donuts.
  2. Bake the wine donuts, with heat on top and bottom, without fan, for about 14 minutes.
  3. As in most recipes where an oven is used, I tell you that each oven is a world. This time is indicative, it is the one that has taken me to bake mine.
  4. No one knows your oven better than yourselves, so it is important that you see that they are golden brown, even try one to catch the point. Between 12 to 15 minutes is advisable.
  5. Carefully pass the donuts to a rack, once baked and when they are still warm, coat them in powdered sugar or ground sugar.
  6. This icing sugar is what gives them that characteristic snowy look. Remember that you can perfectly keep your donuts in an airtight jar for a few days in a cool and dry place.
  7. It is a very simple sweet to make that in addition to not taking time. It will allow us to enjoy some traditional homemade, tasty, aromatic wine donuts and most importantly, totally homemade.

You already have a recipe for wine donuts to be able to make sweeter Christmas evenings or family after-dinner meals. Cheer up with them and enjoy a family afternoon and we get down to work with the little ones at home. Are you going to give up making your own donuts this Christmas?
