Servings : 18-24 doughnuts
Here’s a doughnut recipe that literally takes minutes to prepare and serve! It’s a no-yeast recipe so there’s no hassle of having to wait for the dough to rise blah blah blah. The mixing is simple, no machines or whisks or any major effort! Perfect for tea-time or even b-fast if you have a hubby like mine who loves such tidbits for breakfast hahaha.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (about 240gm)
- 1/2 cup sugar (100gm)
- 5 tbsp. butter or margarine, room temperature
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 drop vanilla or lemon essence
- milk (first check the dough, if you feel it needs liquid then start adding 1 tbsp. at a time as needed, it could be 4 tbsp. or more, or you might not need any water, depending on altitude and size of the egg, etc.)
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the salt followed by the butter/margarine. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until crumbs form. Add the sugar and mix it up again with your fingertips. Now add the egg and drop of vanilla (you can omit essence if you want), and using a fork, toss the flour and egg together for a couple of minutes. Literally dig into the flour with the fork and toss it gently upwards and keep doing that a few times, it helps incorporate air into the dough and also helps distribute the egg nicely. Add the milk gradually, a tablespoon at a time. Don’t put it all at once, the dough needs to remain solid but soft, not sticky or watery. Divide the dough into two to make rolling out easier, roll out to quarter inch thickness and start cutting your doughnuts. If you want them crispy, roll the dough out thinner than quarter inch and cut out the doughnuts. Keep doing this until all the doughnuts have been formed.
Heat oil, test to check if it’s ready by sticking the long thin handle of a wooden spoon into the middle of your pan. Let the tip touch the bottom of your pan of oil. If the oil is ready, bubbles will come up in a lovely stream. If it isn’t….well….nothing will happen, lol. Ok, so once your oil is ready, start frying your doughnuts, and get them to a nice golden brown color on both sides. Remove and place on kitchen towels/tissues to blot. Once slightly cool, sieve some icing/powdered/confectioners’ sugar on them or you can decorate them with chocolate, sugar glaze, honey, nutella….etc. etc…
Enjoy your yumyum quickie doughnuts!!
Hi, sorry but I don’t know them. 🙁
Can I keep the balance dough in the fridge or freezer n use it the next day? Made the doughnuts they were yummy but I think little bit under cooked inside or is that how it’s supposed to be? Just few of us so I didn’t roll all the dough…….
If baking what should the temperature be at?
Preheat on 180 C and bake for 15 minutes or until done.
Yes you can store the leftover dough, wrap it well. It should not be under cooked inside, seems like the doughnuts needed to be fried a bit longer.
what i made was a bit bitter 🙁

W/Salaam, am really not sure why that happens with some people and not others. I can only assume it could be one of the ingredients used that is the culprit. Did you make any changes at all?

I think maybe you should coat
I think maybe you should coat them with icing sugar when they are still slightly warm so that it sort of melts a little bit and sticks on there properly. 🙂

Hi, sorry to know yours did
Hi, sorry to know yours did not turn out that wll. Honestly, I cannot say for sure what the reason was. Did you follow the recipe EXACTLY? Any changes in the ingredients or amounts? Was the oil too hot or not hot enough? What was the consistency of your dough?
