* 3 cups of all purpose flour


* 4 tablespoon of sugar


* 1 tablespoon of salt


* 1 tablespoon of instant yeast


* 1 egg


* 2 tablespoon of butter


* 1 cup of warm liquid milk


* Vegetable oil




* In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, yeast and whisk. Beat the egg into the bowl and mix using a wooden spoon. Add the milk the milk, mix together to form a dough. If the dough is too soft, add some flour and mix thoroughly. Add the butter and mix properly.


* Transfer to a floured surface and knead dough until it’s stretchy. Transfer the kneaded dough to a greased bowl, cover and allow it rise until it doubles in size.



* Once the dough is risen, knock the dough to remove some air bubbles. Place it on a floured surface and roll to a flat dough using a rolling spin.



* Using a doughnut cutter, place it on the flat dough. Repeat the process until you’re done. (You can substitute a doughnut cutter for any clean object with a round surface/shape.) Cover the dough and let it rise for another 30mins.


* Heat the oil and deep fry until it’s golden brown.





Pro Tips:


Temperature Matters: Ensure that your liquids are at the right temperature. Too hot or too cold can affect the yeast’s performance.

Knead Properly: Kneading the dough develops gluten, which is essential for the right texture. Don’t skimp on this step.

Oil Control: Maintain a consistent oil temperature while frying. Too hot, and the doughnuts will brown too quickly; too cold, and they’ll absorb too much oil.

Glazing Technique: When glazing, dip the doughnuts while they’re still warm for a smooth, even coating.
