  • 250 g Strong White Bread Flour
  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 7 g Instant Yeast 1 Sachet
  • 70 g Butter Unsalted
  • 75 ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs


  • 100 g Dark Chocolate
  • 30 g Butter Unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 50 g Chocolate or Rainbow Sprinkles


For the doughnuts

  • Add the flour, sugar, yeast and 1 tsp salt in the bowl and mix until combined.
  • Then gradually add the egg, milk and butter.
  • Gently mix until the dough comes together. The dough should become soft, elastic and sticky. (See Note 1)
  • Knead until you get a smooth dough.
  • Transfer the dough into lightly greased bowl.
  • Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Place the dough on a floured worktop and roll out into 1/2 inch thick sheet
  • Cut the dough using a doughnut cutter. (See Note 2)
  • Set the doughnuts aside on parchment paper. (See Note 3)
  • Cover and let the doughnuts rest for 30-60 minutes, until the doughnuts have increased in sized.
  • In a large separate deep pan, heat the oil to 180°C.
  • Gently put the doughnuts into the pan, make sure not to overcrowd.
  • Fry for about 3 minutes until puffed and golden.
  • Flip them over gently and fry for another minute or 2. You will need to hold them down with a spoon as they begin to float.
  • Remove from the oil and drain them

For the glaze

  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.
  • Remove from the heat and gradually add the butter, milk and golden syrup, incorporating fully after each addition.
  • While still warm, dip the doughnuts in the glaze to coat the top.
  • Transfer to a plate and sprinkle over the chocolate or rainbow sprinkles.
  • Leave to set and then serve.


Note 1 – If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.
Note 2 – Dip the cutter into flour in between cuts, so the dough doesn’t stick to the cutter.
Note 3 – Leave some space in between the doughnuts, the doughnuts will rise and you don’t want them to stick together.
