Shakoy Recipe


"Shakoy" or Twisted Donuts Recipe

( Deep fried twisted donuts coat with sugar)
 Shakoy is one of my favorite snack or merienda since I was little kid, I always looked forward having shakoy after school or on weekends. This twisted donuts coated with sugar is very popular in the Philippines as " Shakoy" , I don't know why local called it that way. There's lot of street vendors selling Shakoy at the streets, even bake-shoppe sell this yummy snacks too. Today, As usual my craving strike, and so here it is! fresh from my kitchen, and it tasted like back home! It's sweet, soft and ummhh..just simply good! I ate 3 pieces already (hahah) Don't tell!!
My kids just watched me the entire process of making this yummy snack, I think they're curious what I'm doing, which by the way I loved. I finished it really quick! ( smiley face ) and my 3 year old daughter took picture of the shakoy / twisted donuts before frying. 
My kiddies are so behaved so I awarded them by having the first taste of Shakoy.. and this is exactly my little boy said ....YUM! mommi...and hubby loved it. He gonna take some to work tomorrow..Yay! and I have 2 left for our snack tomorrow..:)

  3. These look delicious. I've already suggested your webpage to my wife – she's a far more able cook than I am.
    We both share your love of choc chip cookies too – and especially choc chip ice cream.

  9. i'm just want to share my procedure here: Then transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is no longer sticky and is smooth and elastic (about five minutes). Shape the dough into a ball and place in a large lightly greased bowl, turning once. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled (approximately 1 1/2 - 2 hours). Then place the dough on a lightly floured surface, and gently punch the dough to release the air. With a lightly floured rolling pin...thanks.... i'm sorry i didn't follow your own procedure. i pack here is about 10 tablespoon....thanks and its ok. some Filipino called this pilipit.

    1. That's totally fine, whatever works for you! It just happen that 2 cups of flour works fine with 1/2 cup water, It's good to learn something new. Thanks for sharing yours as well. OMG! that's a lot of yeast. 1 pack here is like 1 teaspoon or 3 ounces. Some my friends called shakoy as pilipit :)

    1. Hello Catherine,
      Thank you for nice comment. 1 stick of butter is way too much is should be equivalent to 4 tablespoon. I'm gonna edit the recipe in that way you can make it perfect shakoy at the comfort of your home. If you have any more question send me a message anytime. Thank you, again:)

  18. The pilipit I learned to make was smaller, crunchy, used baking powder and was coated in light caramel. Shakoy is closer to the Malaysian Cha Kueh or dough fritters.
