FAQ: Why are my donuts not hollow? Answer: Making this requires some experience. You need to note the followings: - The yeast is activated with luke warm water at around 32-38°C / 90-100°F - You rest the dough in a warm place (abt 37°C/ 99°F) for 3 times: first time after kneading (for 1 hour), second time after dividing the dough and dip in sesame for 15-20 mins, third time before deep-frying for 10 more minutes - You need to use lots of oil, at least 5cm / 2 inches high - Deep-frying oil is hot at 175°C / 350°F.
