Yummy Mini Doughnuts recipe. It’s soft and light in texture which is absolutely wonderful treat for your weekend with family, kids and friends.



The recipe serves 35 – 40 pcs of mini doughnuts

Ingredients :

  • 250gm Highprotien/ bread flour
  • 1.5 teaspoon dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 110ml warm water
  • 2 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
  • Oil for frying
  • Some powdered sugar for dusting purpose

Let’s make the Doughnuts :


Sift the flour. All the ingredients should be in room temperature.






Yeast Proofing method :

Dissolve the sugar into the hot water. Once the mixture become warm (lukewarm), add in the dry yeast and stir well. Set aside the mixture about 10 minutes. You will notice that the mixture become as creamy foam. It means the yeast worked out well. If the mixture doesn’t arise as creamy foam (still watery), it means the yeast proofing didn’t work and you have to redo this process again. This is a must step to follow.



In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, margarine, egg, vanilla essence. Now add in the above yeast mixture slowly. Using spatula stir all the ingredients together.





Knead the dough on a lightly floured surfaced work board for about 5- 8 minutes. Or you may knead the dough on the same mixing bowl itself. Add some flour if you noticed that the dough is too sticky. The fine dough should not be too dry or too sticky either. It should be soft and supple. Once done, place the dough in the same mixing bowl and cover it up with cloth or lid. Set in a warm place till it rise double the size.




This is the perfect outlook of well rise doughnut dough. Punch in about 2-3 times, to release the air out from the dough.





Transfer  the dough into floured work board. Gently roll out to 1-1.5 cm thickness . Leave the rolled dough for about 5 minutes to rest and then start cutting the doughnuts with a cutter.  (The doughnut cutter must be floured). Dust some flour whenever required, but do not add too much as well as it will change the ratio of the original recipe.

Transfer the doughnuts into floured trays. Let them set and rise again for about 30 minutes.

Now it’s ready for frying process. Heat the oil in deep frying skillet. Fry the doughnuts in batches, in a very low medium heat only. Turn several times, till it become golden color. Remove from the heat and drain them on paper towels or on wired rack. Let it cool down for a while.

For frozen doughnuts : Cut the doughnut into shapes, let it arise for 30 minutes. Then bake it in oven 150 Celsius for 5 minutes. Let it completely cooled down, then place it in airtight container. Keep it in freezer. Whenever you required, remove and defrost it from freezer for 30 minutes. Heat the oil then fry the doughnuts till it become golden in color.
