February. Carnival. Donuts.

Every February my house is full of Donuts. I love eating them, but also making them.

Donuts remind me of my childhood, when my grandma, and my mum were making them for the carnival season, while at the same time they were sewing me costumes for carnival. ๐Ÿ™‚ If I could go back to that beautiful time.

The closest thing that can bring back those memories are donuts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m sharing this grandmas recipe that never fail me.

You will get donuts like from your favourite donut shop. ๐Ÿ˜‰


500g plain flour

1 package dry yeast

2 egg yolks

2 tablespoons sugar

1 vanilla sugar

2 tablespoons rum

a pinch of salt

grated lemon peel

4 tablespoons melted butter

1/4 l milk

1 l oil for frying

powdered sugar for sprinkling


Yeast dissolved in 1.5 cl of warm milk, add 1 teaspoon of sugar, cover with a cloth and leave in a warm to swell

Whisk together egg yolks, sugar, melted butter and rum

In another bowl with dough extension knead together the flour, salt, lemon peel, raised yeast and beaten eggs

Add a warm milk if necessary until a your dough is smooth and sticky

Switch to a floured surface and knead briefly with hands

Return dough to a bowl, cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place for an hour to rise

Knead dough once more, and roll out to a thickness of 1 cm

Crop circles, cover them with a cloth and leave for another 10 minutes to rise

Pour oil in a deep pot and wait until it’s completely hot (you can check whether it is hot enough by putting a piece of dough and see if bubbles appear)

Reduce slightly fire, and put donuts

You put first top side of doughnat (max 4 pcs)

Carefully follow colour (It has to be golden brown)

For the both sides you will need only a few seconds, so you have to be by the pot all the time

Try to fry on each side only once, to get a nice white border

Remove the donuts on a tray with paper towels

And most of all, be careful when placing the donuts in hot oil!!!!

When the donuts are cooled, fill them with desired filling and sprinkle with powdered sugar
