Chinese Crullers

Chinese Crullers

(10 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 loaf of frozen bread dough
  • oil for deep frying
Thaw the bread dough overnight in the refrigerator. About 1 hour before using, remove it from the refrigerator and tear the dough into about 20 pieces.

Roll each piece between your hands to form long rope shapes.

Let them stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

Heat oil for deep-frying. When oil is ready, take each strip of dough and pull, twisting both ends before dropping into the oil. Deep-fry until golden brown.

Remove and drain on paper towels.

I like to then dust them gently with cinnamon and sugar, but that's not a part of the original Chinese recipe.


This recipe makes 20 crullers (also known as Youtiao or Fried Devils).

Mr Breakfast would like to thank football for this recipe.

@silver75au - You can get frozen bread dough at most bigger grocery stores now. I had no idea this had Chinese origins. I thought mom mom invented it. We'd have it for a treat - always with cinnamon and sugar. Loved it as a kid.

I would like to make some Chinese Crullers from your web site recipe but you mention frozen bread dough without a recipe.

How is frozen bread dough made? Could you please publish the ingredients and procedure for making the frozen bread dough?

Thank you for your attention.
