  • 7 g Dried Active Yeast
  • 1 Egg

  • Pour the milk into a bowl and add the sugar, stir until dissolved.
  • Add the yeast to the milk and leave to sit until foamy for about 20 minutes.
  • Place the flour and salt in a bowl and rub the butter in, until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the milk and the egg to the flour and mix until it forms a dough.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes until it forms a skin and becomes more elastic.
  • Place the dough in a bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for an hour until its doubled in size.
  • Knead the dough again to remove the air and divide the dough into 20 pieces, roll each one into a ball.
  • Place the balls of dough on a lined, greased baking tray and leave for another hour until the balls have doubled in size.
  • Place some extra sugar in a bowl and leave to one side.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan to 170C and fry each ball for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden.
  • Drain the doughnuts and dust in the bowl of sugar until coated.
  • Allow the doughnuts to cool slightly and then using a sharp knife, make a hole in the side of each doughnut.
  • Place the jam into a piping bag and pipe some into the middle of each doughnut through the hole.
