Ingredients :

8 oz plain flour


1 oz butter

1/2 oz fresh yeast

1 oz sugar

5 fl oz milk

2 egg yolks

vegetable oil for deep frying

caster sugar and ground cinnamon, mixed together

Method :
  1. Grease a baking sheet, warm the flour and add the salt, rub the butter into the flour.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream the yeast with 1 tsp of the sugar.
  3. Warm the milk and pour it over the egg yolks in a bowl, then add to the yeast.
  4. Add the yeast mixture to the flour and mix to a light dough using your hand.
  5. Beat for 10 minutes, until the mixture leaves your hand clean.
  6. Flour the bottom of the bowl and leave the dough to rise in a warm place, such as an airing cupboard, covered with oiled Clingfilm, until doubled in size.
  7. Turn out the dough on to a floured surface and knead well until free from cracks, then roll out to about 1/2 in thick. Cut into large circles and cut out the centers.
  8. Place them on the greased baking sheet and leave to rise again in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  9. Heat the oil until faintly smoking, then fry the doughnuts, a few at a time, for 6-8 minutes, until browned.
  10. Drain the doughnuts on absorbent kitchen paper, then toss in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
