3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons boiling water

1 teaspoon dry active yeast

8 ounces all-purpose flour

1 1/2 ounces sugar

1 egg


1 dash salt


2 cups confectioners' sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

4 tablespoons hot water


1. In a large measuring jug, combine the milk and boiling water.

2. Add a teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast.

3. Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate (aka foam).

4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt.

5. Cut in the butter (1 ounce) using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles crumbs.

6. Add the egg (give it a quick beat) and yeast mixture to the flour mix, and mix into a smooth dough. This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing.

7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes—it should feel springy and little bubbles should form under the surface.

8. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let rise for about an hour until double in size.

9. Once risen, place the dough onto the counter and cut it into 4 pieces.

10. One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about an inch to an inch and a half wide.

11. Cut strips about an inch long, ball em up with your hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait.

12. Cover the doughnuts holes with a cloth to rise while you heat the oil to 375°F.

13. Place the doughnuts into the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Be sure to fry only a few at a time so they don’t overcrowd and stick together.

14. Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth, before glazing them.

Bon Appetit!
