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.

2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
