  • Steps
  • Ingredients


  • In a medium bowl, add the self-raising flour, salt and yeast and stir to combine.
  • Using a whisk, stir in enough water to make a thick wet batter.
  • Grease a larger bowl with oil and pour the batter mixture into the bowl, cover with cling film and allow proving for 2 hours in a warm place.
  • Place a large saucepan over medium heat and fill up ¾ of the way with the oil.
  • Heat the oil up to 180 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, place two tablespoons in a cup full of water ready for spooning the batter into the oil. (This helps stop the batter from sticking to the spoons). Have a plate with a paper towel on top ready to go, and garnishes ready to sprinkle on top. You want these doughnuts hot to serve!
  • Place tablespoons of batter into the hot oil and regularly stir the oil to cook the doughnuts evenly. Cook for 4 minutes or until nice and golden. Place doughnuts onto a paper towel to drain any excess oil, place hot doughnuts into a medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients and toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately.
