Ring and filled doughnut recipe

Warm, soft and sweet these sugary doughnuts definitely hit the spot if you are after a delicious treat. They take a while to make due to the time the dough requires to rise, but they are worth the wait and taste just like shop bought ones!

(Makes 20)
460g plain flour
1 tsp salt
50g butter
50g caster sugar
7g fast action dried yeast
1 egg
130ml warm milk
90ml warm water
Oil for frying and greasing
Caster sugar for coating

  • Combine the flour, salt and butter in a bowl.
  • Mix in the sugar and yeast.
  • Add the egg, milk and water and mix to form a soft dough.
  • Knead for 5 minutes, either in a mixer with a dough hook or on a well floured surface, until it becomes elastic in texture and smooth.
  • Place in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for about an hour (it should nearly double in size).
  • Gently knead the dough again for a few seconds, roll out to approx 1/2 inch and using a 7.5com cutter cut out 20 rounds. Remove the centres using a 4cm cutter to create the rings.
  • Place the rings on a lightly oiled tray, cover again with cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for approx 40 minutes.
  • Heat the oil for deep frying in a pan on a medium heat (you can use a deep fat fryer if you wish on 180 degrees). Place one doughnut in the oil once it is hot to test the heat. It should go golden brown in around 4 minutes being turned regularly. If it goes dark quickly the oil is too hot so adjust accordingly.
  • Once the doughnuts are cooked, toss them in caster sugar.
  • Scoff!
If you wish to make jam, chocolate or custard filled doughnuts you can form balls instead of rings. These take a few moments more to cook;  you can tell once they are done by tapping them as they sound hollow and they will also become lighter in weight.
Once cooked simply pierce the doughnuts with a skewer and insert the filling of your choice with a piping bag.
