Number of serving: 6
7 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting and kneading

1 tablespoon instant or rapid-rise yeast

1 cup milk

1 cup water

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1 stick (4 ozs.) unsalted butter, cut up into 1 tablespoon chunks

3 large eggs

1/2 gallon vegetable oil


  • Blend 7 cups flour and instant yeast in a large bowl. Set aside. Combine milk, water, sugar, salt and butter in a microwave-safe bowl .
  • Microwave at intervals (depending on how strong your microwave is), until the liquids register between 110° 120°F.
  • Pour liquids and eggs into flour and yeast mixture and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture in blended and sticky.
  • Generously flour a work surface and dump the dough on the flour. Knead for about 5 minutes, adding flour a little at a time until the dough is smooth and slightly sticky.
  • Lightly grease a bowl with oil. Place the dough in the bowl and flip it over so that the entire surface of the dough is covered in oil.
  • Place the dough in a warm part of the kitchen and allow it to rise until it is double in size. When the dough has doubled in size, place it on a floured work surface and punch it down with your hands.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on top and fold the dough over itself a couple of times. Knead for a couple of minutes and using a rolling pin, roll the dough until it is about 1/2? thick.
  • Using a 2.5 cookie cutter dipped in flour, cut dough into rounds as shown below. Here we're using an old cookie cutter which is leaving a circular impression in the dough which disappeared as the doughnuts rose.
  • Allow to rest for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a fryer to 350°F. Fry doughnuts until light brown, flipping them over after about 2 minutes.
  • Drain for a couple of minutes on a cookie rack that has been placed on newspaper. Transfer each dough round onto a floured cookie sheet lined with a silpat, parchment or wax paper.
  • Transfer the doughnuts to a serving platter and dust with confectioner's sugar. Serve with your choice of jams or preserves, honey, cinnamon or Nutella.
