2 tablespoons shortening
1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cups milk
1 eggs, beaten
3 1/4 cups flour

  • Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water.  Set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together sugar, shortening, hotwater, salt, and milk. 
  • When milk mixture cooled down mix in beaten eggs and yeast mixture.
  • Gradually add flour, 1/2 cups at a time.  Add a bit more if dough feels sticky.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes up to 1 hour
  • Shape donuts to desired size.
  • Fill pan with olive oil. 2" deep.
  • Heat up oil.

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  

The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
