  • 2 eggs
  • 180 ml (3/4 cup) milk
  • 10 g (1 tbsp) fresh yeast
  • 500 g (3 1/3 cups) flour
  • 60 g (1/4 cup) butter
  • 30 g (2 tbsp) sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Oil for frying
  • Additional sugar for coating


  1. Prepare the Dough
    • In a small bowl, warm the milk slightly until it is just warm to the touch, but not hot. Add the fresh yeast and dissolve by stirring. Allow it to rest a few moments until it starts to bubble.
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
    • In another bowl, beat the eggs and melted butter together until well mixed.
    • Pour the yeast mixture and the egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until a soft dough forms.
  2. Knead the Dough
    • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
    • If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour as needed.
  3. Shape the Donuts
    • Roll out the dough to about 1 cm (1/2 inch) thickness.
    • Use a donut cutter or two round cutters (one large and one small) to cut out donut shapes. Re-roll any scraps and cut out additional donuts.
    • Place the cut donuts on a lightly floured baking sheet and let them rest for about 10 minutes while you heat the oil.
  4. Fry the Donuts
    • In a large pot or deep fryer, heat the oil to 180°C (350°F). To check if the oil is ready, you can drop a small piece of dough into the oil; if it sizzles and rises to the top, the oil is ready.
    • Carefully place a few donuts into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Cook each side for approximately 1-2 minutes, or until they turn a rich golden color.
    • Use a slotted spoon to remove the donuts from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  5. Coat with Sugar
    • While the donuts are still warm, roll them in a bowl of additional sugar to coat them completely.
    • Serve the donuts warm and enjoy the heavenly taste.
