Doughnuts are a great deep fried sweet treat with many recipe variations now around including doughnut holes, doughnut balls and even baked versions.
The original doughnut! This is a Dutch recipe that is served on New Year's Eve. This recipe was handed down to me by my mother.
I love hot cinnamon doughnuts, but don't like or have all the oil to make the recipes. This version uses an air fryer. By using less oil, I can use tastier oil, thus my choice is butter.
It's easy to make your own deep fried doughnuts! These small balls of batter are deep fried then rolled in sugar. Uses dry yeast, water, sugar, milk and margarine.
Not sure if this is a recipe or not but I love it! Basically you take and unhealthy doughnut and make it more unhealthy :) Great as a quick dessert.
This is a traditional Jewish holiday recipe called sufganiyot, normally served during the Hanukkah season. These are really great when stuffed with jam.
A lovely batter is made with creme fraiche which adds extra flavour and moisture. The balls are quickly fried until golden and then covered in caster sugar. A touch of cinnamon can be added.
You might find these at cafes but they're not that hard to make at home. Very simple and satisfying.
The churro is the Mexican version of a donut. Water, butter, flour and eggs are mixed to form a dough, rolled into tubes, fried in oil then coated in sugar and cinnamon.
Next time you have leftover or day old white bread, try this recipe which is just like jam doughnuts. Bread is dipped in egg batter and fried.
These are a light and fluffy yeast doughnut that are initially prepared in a bread machine so taking most of the hard work away. I like mine served warm with cinnamon sugar.
