Number of serving: 15
4 cups flour

2 teaspoons dry yeast

½ cup warm milk

¼ cup oil

¾ cup sugar

Zest of one lemon

pinch of salt

2 cups of powered sugar (to dust donuts)

vanilla sugar

3 cups of oil for frying


  • Mix the yeast, warm milk, one teaspoon of sugar, and one teaspoon of flour . In a small bowl and set aside to activate for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine eggs, the remaining sugar, salt, lemon zest, and ¼ oil. Add yeast mixture and slowly incorporate the flour, until the dough is well combined.
  • Gently flour your workspace, and knead your dough. Place the dough in a clean bowl, cover with a tea towel, and allow it to rest for 20 minutes.
  • Once the dough is rested, separate it into four sections in order to make it easier to work with and roll the dough out about ¼ inch thick.
  • Use a medium-diameter glass to cut out circles. Heat about 4 cups of oil (about 3 deep) in a large pan to ~350 degrees.
  • While the oil is heating, combine vanilla sugar, and powdered sugar in a separate bowl (this is for sprinkling your donuts). Place about 5 donuts in at a time, allowing them to fry for about a minute on each side.
  • Once the donuts are golden brown, remove and place them on paper towel lined tray. Allow the donuts to cool down for a couple of minutes, and you can either roll them in icing sugar, or use a sieve to sprinkle them lightly.
