  • Add the remaining sugar, eggs, butter, 2 cups flour and salt. Beat until combined

  • With a doughnut cutter, cut out 12 doughnuts. Place them on baking paper and cover with a towel. Let them rest for 20 mins. While waiting, 10 mins thru resting, place a pot on your stove, fill with vegetable oil and turn the heat on high, You want reaaaally hot oil (190C) so you don't end up with oily doughnuts
  • Place three doughnuts at a time, frying for a min on each side. Remove and place on kitchen towel to absorb excess oil


  • Mix all ingredients together in a shallow bowl, dip the doughnuts on one side and let them sit for 10 mins until the glaze has hardened and the excess has dripped over
