Cream cheese mini doughnuts

I had some leftover cinnamon sugar from previous recipe, so I thought I'll make these. They are quick and easy to make, don't require raising as they are made with baking soda instead of yeast. The dough itself is not overly sweet - they are covered in sugar anyway. If you fancy those bite-size treats, here's what you're gonna need.

250g tub of cream cheese, natural full fat
2 and 1/2 cup plain flour
5 tablespoons sugar
2 egg yolks
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons creme fraiche or soured cream
oil for deep-frying - around 1 liter

For sugar coat:
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Put all the ingredients for the dough in a bowl and mix on low speed with dough hook attached until it's smooth and uniform. Take the dough out of the bowl and place on lightly floured working surface. You may want to use some spare flour for sprinkling as it's gonna be a bit sticky - try to not use too much, we don't want dough to become too hard. Flatten the dough with your hands, so it's about 1 inch thick. Using round cookie cutter or a shot glass, cut out small circles. Heat up oil in a pan (enough so doughnuts float on the surface) and deep fry them until well browned, turning them mid-way through. You can also use a deep-fryer. After taking doughnuts out of the pan leave them on a piece of paper towel to dry excess oil. Take couple at a time and place in a bowl with cinnamon sugar - shake the bowl, so doughnuts are covered evenly. Arrange them on a plate.
Enjoy :-)
