Korean Twisted Donut | Korean Bread

Korean Twisted Donut

Today I am sharing with you a new variety of donut recipe. It is twisted like a braid and hence named twisted Korean donuts. It is crunchy and sweeter outside, soft and fluffy inside. I have added little sugar to the dough. So the inner part will not be much sweeter. You can add  additional sugar if required. If you dust with good amount of cinnamon sugar outside as shown in the picture, no extra sugar is needed.

Korean Bread

Initially, I thought it's a difficult process to make this donut. However, I must admit the fact, it wasn't as difficult as I thought. Please give it a try and let me know how it turned out. Happy cooking!

Korean Twisted Donut


All purpose flour - 3 cups plus 3 tsp for dusting
Butter - 3 tblspn

Sugar - 2 tblspn
Dry yeast - 2 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1 cup
Egg - 1
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil - to deep fry

For coating:

Cinnamon powder - 1 tsp
Sugar - 3 tblspn


In a large bowl, add milk, melted butter, sugar and salt. Mix well until everything is blended well.

Add an egg and mix well. Add yeast and stir well. Let it sit for 5 mins.

Now add the flour and knead the dough for few mins. Cover it with a cling wrap. Let the dough sit and double it's size for about 1 1/2 hours.

Punch the dough and knead well and cover again with a cling wrap. Wait for 30 mins to double its size.

Again punch well to deflate the air and knead for 2 to 3 mins. Divide the dough into 16 equal balls. Take a ball and gently roll into a long cylindrical rope.

Initially start rolling from the center and then at the two ends. Roll the ends in opposite direction.

Join both the ends and twist it like a braid. Follow the same procedure for the other balls. Keep the twisted dough in a pan dusted with flour and rest it for 15 mins.

Heat oil in a deep frying pan, and fry the twisted donuts till it turns golden brown. Transfer it to a paper towel.

In a small serving bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar. Add the fried donuts and shake well to coat the cinnamon sugar.

Enjoy with tea!

  • Do not turn it immediately after dropping the donuts inside the oil. Let it cook on one side and then turn them.
  • Handle them carefully while frying. Because the shapes will be collapsed.
  • Fry the donuts in more oil if you do not want darker brown color at a particular area.
