  • 420 g cake flour
  • 5 ml salt
  • 50 ml sugar
  • 10 g instant yeast
  • 60 g margarine
  • 1 large egg
  • 150 ml warm milk
  • 50 ml lukewarm water

  1. Mix the flour, salt and sugar together. Add the yeast and mix. Rub the margarine into the flour. Add the egg to the milk and whisk to mix.
  2. Add the milk mixture together with enough of the lukewarm water to the dry ingredients to form a soft dough.
  3. Knead the dough well for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  4. Knock the dough down, divide into 16 equal pieces and shape each piece into a ball or cut into ring doughnuts.
  5. Place on a lightly floured tray, oil the surface of each doughnut and allow to rise in a warm place until double in volume, about 35 – 40 minutes.
  6. Deep fry the doughnuts in hot oil 180°C. until golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain. Roll in castor sugar or fill with whisked sweetened cream.
