Hungarian Cottage Cheese Donuts – Túrófánk
Hungarian cottage cheese donut, túrófánk
Hungarian cottage cheese donuts are very easy to make, ideal for beginners. A quick dessert recipe, it takes only 15 minutes to prepare. Hungarian cottage cheese is a fresh, soft curd cheese, similar to farmer’s cheese or quark, dry and not liquidy at all. It is most often made with cow’s milk. If you use ricotta cheese, then add only 1 egg.
These delicious doughnuts are made without yeast, so there is no need for leavening – you can taste them in minutes! They are lightly sweet, bite-sized donuts, finished with a dusting of powdered sugar.
Make sure that the oil is not too hot when you put the donuts in. If it is too hot, then the outside of the donut cooks too fast and it is not fully cooked inside.
It is not good either if the oil is not hot enough, adjust the heat if the doughnuts are cooking too quickly or too slowly. You should monitor your oil carefully throughout the frying process, which is about 4-5 minutes
