Doughnuts are one of those things that are often looks over flavour.  But not these babies…. Doughnuts are an enriched yeasted dough, and as such, rises quickly and easily.  So can be made start to finish in a day.  And I guarantee you’ll make them again and again.

Dough

  • 500g strong white flour
  • 200g of milk
  • 75g butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 10g salt
  • 5g dried yeast
  • 2 eggs

  • Sunflower oil for the fryer
  • Caster sugar for dusting
  • Any fillings or dips you might like

Step 1

Warm the milk to blood temperature, not too hot, not too cold, in a saucepan. Add in the eggs and the soft butter.


Step 2

Put all the remaining ingredients in your mixing bowl.  Add the liquids and combine in your mixer using a “K” beater, or equivalent.


Step 3

Once the dough has come together, change to your dough hook and knead the dough in your machine until the dough wraps itself around the hook, indicating the dough is ready.


Step 4

Remove the dough hook and cover the bowl.  Leave the dough to double in size. Weigh the dough out into 25 g  pieces and shape into dough balls. Cover with a piece of clingfilm brushed with sunflower oil.

Leave to prove again until doubled in size.


Step 5

Heat the oil in your fryer until its 180°C.  VERY CAREFULLY add two dough balls at a time to the oil, seam side up.  Once they are a dark chestnut colour, turn them over carefully with a tongs so the other side can cook.


Step 6

Remove the cooked doughnuts carefully to some kitchen paper on a tray.  Leave them to drain for a minute, then toss in some caster sugar.  Enjoy them as they are.  or pipe some filling into them.  If you can wait that long…. Divine.
