About this recipe: These little doughnut rounds are easy and quick to make. To make them even faster, you can make the dough the night before, cover and keep them in the refrigerator overnight. That way, all you have to do is heat your oil, fry and serve. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 190 C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt, mace and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Create a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in milk, oil and egg. Thoroughly stir into the mixture.
