Wow! It’s been 9 months since I have written a baking post! I honestly didn’t think it was that long. Well today i’ve got a doughnut recipe for you guys, as I thought it would be different from the standard cake, and it’s very easy. So let’s get to it!

You will need:

210g Flour 150g Sugar 1/4 Teaspoon of Salt 1 Large Egg 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Oil 62g Powdered Milk / 112ml Milk 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract Oil (For Deep Frying) 1 Tablespoon Icing Sugar

*  You can also add toppings and flavourings of your choice.*


  1. Beat the egg, sugar, milk, oil and vanilla extract into a bowl. You may need the help of an electric whisk.

2. In another bowl, sift the flour and baking powder, then add the salt.

4. Form balls from the dough, flatten it a bit , and make a whole in the middle with your finger. I personally found that the holes get smaller when fried, so make the hole a bit larger.

5. Fry the doughnuts – about 2 at a time. Make sure the heats not too hot, the doughnuts will just burn. They take about 2 minutes to cook each.


6. Then decorate to your liking! I used vanilla and cinnamon flavoured sugar with an icing sugar /water mix.

And there we have it, a set of delicious doughnuts. As you can probably tell, a couple are slightly too brown, so I do highly recommend keeping the heat low – medium when it’s time to fry. Hope you enjoy these though!
