I do love a good Doughnut, it reminds me of being at the Fair or an amusement park. They are definitely best served warm.


Homemade Sugar Ring Doughnuts – makes about 10-12

1 tbsp yeast

4 tbsp caster sugar

150ml warm milk

225g plain flour

Pinch salt

50g butter

1 egg

300ml vegetable oil


Mix yeast, 1/2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp of warm milk together and leave in warm place for 15 mins or until frothy

Sift the flour into a bowl add the salt and 1 tbsp of sugar and make a  well in the middle

Pour the yeast mixture, with the beaten egg and melted butter  into bowl and mix all together until a dough is formed

Knead the dough and leave to rise/prove for about 45 mins or double in size. Select proving on Luce oven or cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm place.

On a floured surface, knead the dough for 5 mins and make into small balls, flatten to approx 2 cm thick and using a cutter make small hole in the middle to form a ring shape

Leave to rise/prove for a further 30 mins or till double in size

Using Induction hob set to power level 6 and heat oil in a wok until it reaches 190 deg (drop a cube of bread in, if it sizzles and turns golden brown in 30 secs, it hot enough)

Drop doughnuts into oil and cook for about 3-5 mins, turning halfway

Remove using slotted spoon and put onto kitchen paper, using the remainder sugar coat doughnut and serve.

Option to have chosen sauce for dipping….ie: melted chocolate……Mmmmmmmm.
