Sugar Twist Donut or Shakoy/ Lubid lubid Recipe

This is an excellent snack for kids and  grown ups too. Sugar twist in English and shakoy or lubid lubid in Filipino dialect. Is an all time meryienda in my country where you can buy it on the streets, public markets or  even in some bakeries.  I used to make this recipe when I was in the Philippines as a snack for my visitors,  family, church gatherings and business too. Yes! I was a small time businesswoman. I made shakoy and cupcakes for business, I sold them to   schools and offices. Now that I am here in the US of A, I would still make shakoy occasionally as a snack for family and church gatherings. Boy! my hubby fell in love with it and takes it to work. A lot of my American friends  love it too and asked for the recipe. This is best when served warm, match it with your hot coffee, hot chocolate or any cold drinks. I hope you guys enjoy this easy to make recipe. Even your kids will enjoy making this with you

Here's what you need:

4 cups flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon dry active yeast
1 cup lukewarm water 
2 tablespoon oil

Just twisted, waiting to double in size


1. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water
2. Add sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups of flour
3. Mix and knead until smooth. Use remaining flour during kneading
4. Form into ball and let it rise in a greased bowl for an hour or until double in bulk.
5. Punch down and divide it into 24 portions
6. Roll each portion into a 10 inch cylinder and twist like a rope

7. Let stand for 30 minutes  or until double in size.
8. Fry in  deep hot oil until golden brown
9. Roll on white sugar or you can  use cinnamon sugar too( good for diabetics)

waiting to be deep fried

My kids always love to help me when I'm in the kitchen. Here's sample of what they made

    1. Hi Josephine,
      Ambot ngano nigahi man ang imuha. If you let it rise for 30 minutes before frying it, it will be softer. Try na and let me know how it went.
