How to Make “Bánh Cam & Bánh Còng” Vietnamese Donuts

How to make southern Vietnam sweetened donuts “Bánh Cam & Bánh Còng”

Ingredients: glutinous rice flour, rice flour, sugar, sesame seed, cooking oil, mung beans


There are 4 basic steps:

Inside the donuts: soak mung beans in the water to remove the skins; remove all skins; cook and let it cool; smash it; add sugar, vanilla + cooking oil; make balls

Outside the donuts: add flour and water, mix until it smooth; make a round shape and place prepared mixed mung bean balls; cover it and roll around around to form a ball or flatten it

Deep-fried the donuts: boil the cooking oil; add one by one uncooked donuts in at the medium heat; when it is golden, take it out

Topping the donuts:  There are 2 ways to do.

  1. Shaking donuts with sugar: cook sugar and water to boil; add fried donuts; shake well until caramelized sugar cover entirely donuts
  2. Caramelizing donuts: cook sugar and a little water until golden thick; add sesame seeds; mix well; dip donuts one by one

I love Banh Cam & Banh Cong.  If you try one, I’m sure you’re going getting more and more.  They aren’t sweet like American donuts, different types of sweet, lighter sweet I think so…
