Donuts All Day Err Day

These soft pleasures go well at breakfast, lunch and evening tea. Sweet or savory they are a great treat to have in your kitchen.


  • Whole milk
  • Unsalted butter
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Flour
  • Instant yeast
  • Flavouring – can be nutmeg, coconut, vanilla, ginger, your choice!

The Dough:

  • Start with making a batter with 1 cup milk, 2 tbs butter, 2 tsp yeast, 2 eggs, 2 tbs sugar, pinch of salt, flavouring and 2 cups of flour. Depending on sweetness wanted, you can up the butter and sugar. Mix till soft, sticky and smooth. This can be done with a whisk at low speed.
  • Gradually add the flour and knead into a soft dough. It should stick to the bottom and a little bit to the sides. If you are using a whisk, make the dough with the dough hook.
  • Cover with a damp kitchen towel and let the dough rise for 1 and 1/2 hours until it doubles in size. I like to make use of the sun at the window.

The cook:

  • On a floured counter top, dump and roll out the dough into 1.5cm thickness and dust the top with a little flour.
  • Cut into desired shapes and place on a floured tray.
  • Cover with a clean kitchen towel and back to the warm corner for 45 minutes.
  • Deep fry the doughnuts on moderate heat till a light golden colour on both sides. Drain the doughnuts once out of the pan.

For a simple glaze, stir confectioners sugar, water, salt and vanilla until a smooth slightly thick consistency. Dip the tops or both sides in glaze and place on a wire rack for glaze to set.

Now you can glaze the doughnuts, coat them with chocolate, have them with jam, sandwich meats or have them plain. Enjoy!
