Quick and Easy Donuts

    15 mins

    I discovered this recipe 15 yrs ago and my family has enjoyed it ever since! Great if you have a deep fryer.

    20 people made this

    Serves: 10 

    • 625g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 75g butter
    • 75g sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup (250ml) milk
    • oil for deep frying

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Sieve flour and baking powder into a bowl and rub in butter. Mix in the sugar.
    2. In a separate bowl, beat egg and milk together, make a well in flour mix and pour in. Mix together to form a soft dough.
    3. Roll out dough on a well floured surface to about 1cm thickness and cut to shape of choice. Personally I use 2 different sized biscuit cutters.
    4. Cook in hot deep frying oil for 30 seconds, turn over and cook for a further 30 seconds until golden brown.
    5. Drain on kitchen paper. Roll in sugar or decorate and serve!
