Nostalgic Deep-Fried Bread Using Bread-Maker Prepared Dough

This is the nostalgic, deep-fried bread I would eat as a child in my school lunches. It has a gentle flavor, and is crispy and springy.

Ingredients: Makes 5

Basic Rolled Bread
See Recipe ID: 543168
Kinako
to taste
Sugar
to taste
Salt
to taste
Frying oil
as needed

Steps

1. Prepare the dough from Recipe ID: 543168.
2. Separate into 5 sections, roll into balls, then let rise for 15 minutes.
3. Shape the dough (into your desired shape). I rolled each section into 25-cm long logs, brought the ends together, then twisted them.
4. Let rise again (2nd prove); spritz with water, then let rise for 35 minutes in oven set to 40℃. To prevent the bread from loosing their shape, I recommend individually laying each one on a sheet of parchment paper.
5. Deep fry in oil. They will expand, so allow enough room in the oil.
6. Deep fry until golden brown as shown. Thoroughly remove excess oil.
7. Put kinako, sugar, and salt in a nylon net bag, shake until even, then sprinkle on top of the donuts.
8. Voila!

Story Behind this Recipe

No matter where I look, I can't find the type of deep-fried bread I want...but I can never forget that taste...

So, that's what led to my recreation of it.
