500g all-purpose flour
50g sugar, plus extra for coating
1 tsp salt
14g dry yeast (2 packets)
250ml warm milk (not hot)
2 large eggs, beaten
50g unsalted butter, melted
Oil, for deep frying
milk powder
Optional: Cream for filling

  1. Activate the yeast:

In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk with a teaspoon of sugar. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy, signaling that the yeast is active.

  1. Mix the dough:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, the remaining sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the activated yeast mixture, beaten eggs, and melted butter.
Mix everything together until a soft dough forms. If it’s too sticky, add a little more flour; if too dry, add a splash of milk.

  1. Knead the dough:

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, or until it’s smooth and elastic.
Place the kneaded dough in a greased bowl, covering it with a clean cloth. Let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size.

  1. Shape the doughnuts:

Punch down the risen dough to release any air bubbles. Turn it out onto a floured surface and roll it to about 1/2 inch thickness.

Use a doughnut cutter or a large and a small round cutter to cut out doughnut shapes. Place the cut doughnuts and doughnut holes onto a floured tray, leaving space between them.

Cover them with a cloth and let them rise again for about 30 minutes, or until they puff up.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F (175°C). Carefully place the doughnuts in the oil, not overcrowding the pan. Fry for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown.
Remove them with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. While still warm, roll them in sugar and milk powder and fill them with your cream filling using a piping bag.
There you have it, your very own homemade milky doughnuts! Enjoy them filled with delectable creams, these treats are sure to make you forget about the store-bought versions. Happy baking!
