Donuts - The Recipes

Here they are, the recipes I've been using lately.

The donuts have come from this site, it's a yeast based recipe but also egg free (and probably easily dairy free if you used rice/oat milk)

And the recipes below are the ones from my mum. It might sound weird to have sauces with donuts, but they are yum. I used to love the nutmeg one, but the lemon might be my favourite these days. Either way, they're both gooooood.


1 cup sugar
3 ½ teaspns baking powder
4 cups flour
½ teaspn cinnamon
½ teaspn nutmeg
2 eggs
1 cup milk
3 tblspns melted butter
½ teaspn salt
oil for deep frying

Mix dry ingredients. Beat eggs thoroughly and add. Add milk and melted butter. Roll about 1 cm thick on floured board and cut with donut cutter. Fry several at a time in hot oil until nicely browned. Dust with icing or caster sugar.

1 cup sugar
1 tblspn flour
1 cup boiling water
1 tblspn butter
1 teaspn nutmeg

Mix together sugar and flour and stir in boiling water, and cook, stirring constantly, until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly. Add butter and simmer gently 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in nutmeg.

⅓ cup sugar
1 tblspn cornflour
1 cup water
3 tblspns butter
½ teaspn grated lemon rind
1 ½ tblspns lemon juice
pinch salt

Mix sugar and cornflour together in a saucepan. Add water and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles. Simmer gently for a few minutes, then remove from heat. Stir in butter, lemon rind and fresh lemon juice and salt. Serve hot with pudding (donuts!)
