Fluffy cream rings: what dough to cook with

Ingredients for the custard dough:

  • milk (2.5% fat) - 0.5 cups or 125 ml
  • water - 125 ml or 0.5 cups
  • salt - 2 g (a pinch)
  • sugar - 10 g (0.5 tbsp)

Milk for cooking
  • Powdered sugar - 50 g (2 tbsp)
  • almond flakes - 50 g (4 tbsp)
  • eggs - 1 pc (for greasing the rings)

Method of making the dough:

Eggs for the dough

1. Mix milk, water, salt, sugar, and butter, and bring to a boil.

2. Make the dough: pour the mixture in a thin stream into the flour and mix.

3. Return the mass to the saucepan and dry it on fire until a crust appears on the bottom of the saucepan.

4. Knead the dough to cool to 45-50 °C.

5. Beat the eggs with a blender (or pass through a sieve) to obtain a smooth consistency.

Butter for dough

6. Add the eggs in a thin stream to the custard base, stirring constantly.

7. Be guided by the consistency of the dough – it should be shiny, smooth, elastic, and drip off the whisk or spatula continuously.

9. Put the rings on the prepared parchment, brush with egg, and sprinkle with almond slices, and powdered sugar.

11. Do not open the oven.

12. Take the rings out of the oven and let them cool completely.

Ingredients for the cream:

  • mascarpone - 200 g (0.8 cups)
  • boiled condensed milk - 200 g (0.7 cups of 250 ml)
  • cream - 50 ml (2 tbsp, 30%)
