Various types of donuts
The history of such dishes, like donuts, goes back far into the past. His name came to us from Poland, and the first donut, which is called, was baked in the days of Frederick the Great in the fields of one of the battles. It has been documented that even in Roman times there was a technology for creating food that in its form and method of preparation resembled today's donuts.
They were called "globules" and were small balls, fried in fat, which is then smeared with honey and sprinkle with poppy seeds. A few years later, in the Middle Ages in Europe began to bake the so-called "Krapf" - bent in the form of the Latin letter «S» confectionery, which appeared in the 18th century again, but with a variety of fillings. To this day, donuts are one of the most popular confectionery products worldwide.
Different shapes, different origins and ingredients that make up a particular confection, influenced in their name. Today, there are more than fifty titles, which endows deep fried pieces of dough. In Germany donuts called "Berliner" and they have a somewhat elongated shape. And if Russia is completely fried donuts (and do not require a coup for roasting on the other hand), the Berliner need to turn during cooking. Because of this, both sides of such articles have a smooth golden color, and on the circumference side is a clear white rim.
In America, there are your donuts - "donuts." They look like a Russian donuts bagels (such as rings) and stir-fried with a full immersion in hot boiling oil. Well, in Hawaii, there are "malasadas", which do not have any specific shape - the usual split off pieces of dough and immediately sent into boiling oil.
Dutch donuts called "pofferches" but the donuts are almost similar. The more they resemble pancakes or even small pancakes, sprinkled with powdered sugar. Powder is also not always been the main way to decorate a donut. In some countries, it uses coconut, poppy, sesame, or grated nuts. In Italy, reminiscent of donuts Tatar national dish of "fagots" and not use them as a dessert, as is customary in most countries, and with a variety of sauces, washed down with wine and beer.
The biggest donuts - "pikarones" - made in Peru. They are so large that their boiler with oil catch a stick of the very podtseplen donut hole. French donuts "Besnier" never baked rolls, but can be both round and square shapes. Land of the Rising Sun likes to experiment with food, including donuts. In Japan, you can buy and taste not only fried but baked donut. The most popular among European manufacturers are still donuts from Poland.
In Japanese restaurants and cafes you can see a very original form of donuts. Among them, donuts, donuts and even daisy-sausages.

It merely presses in several places, these circles to each other. If at first you do not succeed daisy, your household will still find their similarities with some flower.
As for the European donuts past centuries, the letter «S» will make not all, because the recipe for their manufacture has not been preserved, as well as there are no molds that could repeat it. But should not get upset. To do this, you can turn to modern technology and independently make the necessary forms, which can be "cut out" absolutely any figures.

But a donut can get is not quite smooth. For the family goes, but if dinner or tea invited guests, then try to approach the process of forming donuts accurate. To this end, in addition to the basic ingredients for the dough, we need support. It is a rolling pin, a glass or a cup of medium diameter and a narrow shot of.
We start with the fact that the total cut off a piece of dough and roll out a small portion of it in a layer thickness of at least 1 cm. Then, using a glass or cup, cut circles out of this formation. They are obtained smooth and beautiful. Now there is only a hole inside. It will help us make a liqueur glass. We try to cut a central hole as much as possible accurately and smoothly. The resulting "pancakes" are sent into the pan.
