Covered in chocolate, glazed with sugar or plain, with a hole in the middle or stuffed with jam, you must love the delicious fried round doughnuts. Well, with this recipe for delicious homemade doughnuts glazed with strawberries syrup, you no longer have to suffer a second without them.

Ingredients:

½ cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
½ cup of water

½ teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoon vinegar
1½ tablespoons of shortening

How to make the doughnuts:

Combine the water and ½ cup of sugar in a small saucepan. Boil over medium-high heat and stir thoroughly until the sugar dissolves. Add the strawberries and boil for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 more minutes. Strain the liquid and set aside to cool.

Mix together the vinegar and milk. Stir carefully and let it stand for a few minutes until the mixture thickens.

Roll on floured surface to about 1/3 inch thick, cut into doughnuts and let stand for about 10 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large pan to 370°F. Fry the doughnuts until golden, turn over if needed.

Drain oil on paper towels, dust with powdered sugar, and garnish with the strawberries syrup.
