About this recipe: These treats are perfect! They are crispy on the outside and incredibly fluffy on the inside. Doughnut batter is deep-fried, then tossed in icing sugar to serve. Yum!


Serves: 4 

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 lemon, zest grated
  • 125ml full fat milk
  • 315g self-raising flour
  • oil for deep frying
  • 1 brown paper bag
  • icing sugar to serve

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Heat oil in a deep pot.
  2. Beat eggs and sugar together. Add lemon zest and milk, then mix. Add self-raising flour and mix.
  3. Place 1/2 teaspoon of mixture into oil. If mixture bubbles and floats to the surface, the oil is hot enough to cook.
  4. Once oil is hot. Cook mixture in batches. Using a salad spoon (or a spoon equivalent to 3 tablespoons) drop mixture into oil. The mixture should bubble and float to the surface. Once one side is cooked, the doughnuts will automatically turn over.
  5. Once both sides of the doughnuts are cooked, drain on kitchen towels for 1-2 minutes, then place in brown paper bag with icing sugar. Shake doughnuts so they are covered in icing sugar.
  6. They will still be quite hot so take care.
