What a Treat …

Doughnuts are something that I’ve never made before, thinking that they would be too difficult and probably just as good as their shop bought counterparts. How wrong was I ?!!
Not only were these incredibly easy to make, they tasted delicious – my son licked his plate clean!!


We were very restrained and didn’t eat them all in one go – one with a vanilla latte later today is something I’m looking forward to!

    • You need 1 tbsp dried active yeast, 60ml lukewarm water, 2 tbsp caster sugar, 190ml warm milk, 1 large egg, 30g unsalted butter (melted), 340g strong white bread flour, 700ml sunflower oil, 100g caster sugar, 2 tsp ground cinnamon.

      Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water with 1tbsp of the caster sugar. Stir to dissolve the yeast and leave for about 20 mins, till there are small bubbles on the surface.
      Add milk, egg, butter and the rest of the sugar to the yeast mixture.
      Add the flour to a large mixing bowl, add the liquids and mix to a dough with your hands. Turn on to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 15 mins.
      Put the dough in to a large bowl, cover with cling film and leave somewhere warm for about 40 mins, till the dough is doubled in size.
      Once proved, knock back and roll out to about 2.5cm thick. Cut the dough using 2 sizes of cookie cutter.
      Line a baking tray with kitchen paper.
      Heat the oil to 170 degrees C:
      When the oil is ready, lower the doughnuts carefully in and cook for approx 4 mins, turning them to ensure even cooking.
      Drain on the kitchen paper then roll in the sugar/cinnamon mix.
      Eat warm & enjoy!
