1. Use a good quality yeast.
2. You need not buy donuts cutter, you could use any round cutter available at home.
3. The dough will be loose however it gets firm once it’s chilled.


In a bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract.

In a large bowl add in your flour, yeast and salt and the above, wet ingredients.

Mix it with a spatula until you form a wet loose dough. Cover tightly with cling film and lay a towel over the top. That’s it, your dough is mixed and no machine needed!! You may have some lumps in the dough but don’t worry, they will disappear in the finished product.

Leave the rise at room temperature for 2-3 hours. You will see it rise and bubble up.

Once doubled in size place the dough in the fridge overnight, roughly for 12 hours. The dough will be loose but will firm up when chilled.

To form your Donuts: On a floured surface, roll out your dough to ¼ of an inch thick. Using a cutter cut out your round pieces of dough. To cut the hole in the middle I used a cookie cutter.

Lay your donuts and donuts holes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper (use a good thick baking tray, or double tray so your donuts don’t brown too much on the bottom)

Cover your donuts with a towel and leave to rise again at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. You will know when they are ready because they will have puffed up.

Gently brush the donuts with melted butter

Bake at 375o F (190o C) for 15 minutes. Keep a close eye on them so they don’t get too brown.

To deep fry : Fry the donuts in Oil at medium heat.

Chocolate glaze
In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Slowly stir in milk and vanilla extract. Whisk until silky and smooth. If you need a touch more milk to make this a dippable glaze, add a bit more.

Dip doughnuts in chocolate glaze and let rest to harden slightly.
