Here’s my American-style glazed doughnuts and cinnamon sugar coated dough balls made from the remaining dough. This recipe makes 6-8 doughnut rings and around 20 dough balls.
Tip #1 You can be creative with how you glaze or decorate your doughnuts from dipping them in a chocolate glaze to dusting them with just icing sugar.
Tip #2 To fill your doughnuts with jam, lemon curd, custard or any of your favourite fillings, simple fry them whole on both sides and roll the doughnuts in granulated sugar (or icing sugar). Pierce a hole on one side of the doughnuts and used a piping bag to fill the doughnuts.
Tip #3 If you would prefer to bake the doughnuts, bake them in a preheated oven at 180º Celsius for about 8-10 minutes.
Tip #4 You can make beignets and yum yums using this recipe. Simply cut the dough into squares or rectangles and fry as per the recipe below.
