One woman, though, has blown people away after sharing an easy “foolproof” doughnut recipe detailing just how easy it is for anyone to make themselves at home – and they “taste ‘just like the ones at the fairground”.
The novice baker shared her recipe on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, which has since racked up almost 5k Facebook likes and comments with people extremely eager to whip some up themselves.
To create the fluffy home-made doughnuts, you need a few simple ingredients that you probably already have at home – so you won’t even need to visit a supermarket to get extra ingredients.
All it takes is 250g plain flour, half a teaspoon of salt, 70g cold unsalted butter, one teaspoon of baking powder and 170ml of milk – and there’s no yeast required at all.
Alongside photos of the delicious doughnuts, the home-baker shared the exact method she’d used to create the fluffy doughnuts – and it couldn’t be simpler.
To make them yourself, simply mix all the ingredients together – apart from the milk – so that it forms a texture similar to breadcrumbs.
Next up, slowly add the milk, but the original poster warns you may not need the entire amount.
After mixing the ingredients together and creating a firm-ish dough, pop it in the fridge for one hour.
What you need:
250g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
70g cold unsalted butter
1 teaspoon of baking powder
170ml of milk
Caster sugar to finish
To create the doughnut shape, the novice baker says to roll out the dough so that it’s about 1cm thick.
The woman revealed that she’d used two circle cookie cutters to create the rounded shape – a large one for the outer circle with a small one for the centre.
She then revealed that she’d used an electric cooker on medium temp to fry the doughnuts, frying each side for about one minute at a time and flipping until golden brown
To finish off, she coated them in castor sugar for the ultimate sugary dessert, or you can add a hint of cinnamon too.
