Quick & Easy Donuts

I can have donuts any time of the day, seven days a week.This recipe of donuts is a super quick & easy which can serve hot donuts on table in flat 15 minutes.The ingredients listed are readily available in home and it just took me few minutes to whip them and they were gobbled down by my son even faster.It took me more time to write this recipe than making them.The end result was fluffiest and just melt in the mouth donuts.


1 1/4 Cup Refined Flour/ Maida
2 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
3/4 teaspoon vinegar
1/4 cup sugar, powdered
3 tablespoon melted butter
Refined Oil,for frying
1/4 cup sugar(powdered) for dusting

How to make Donuts

  • Preheat refined oil in a deep pan to a medium temperature or 180 degree celsius.
  • In a bowl mix refined flour,baking powder and salt
  • In another bowl, mix sugar, melted butter, milk and vinegar.

  • Add all the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while gently mixing with a fork.Mix just enough so that all the ingredients are just mixed

  • Make small lemon sized balls gently by hands.Do not overwork and press.

  • Fry 3-4 of these balls at a time over medium heat till they turn golden brown in color

  • Take out fried donuts on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb excess oil.

  • Dust with powdered sugar generously or roll in cinnamon sugar as desired

Quick Tips

  • Do not fry these donuts at very high heat else the centre will remain uncooked.If fried on very low temperature,they will absorb excess oil.
  • Do not over mix the dough of donuts, else they will become heavy.
  • For cinnamon sugar: To 1/4 cup castor sugar add  tablespoon cinnamon powder.Roll donuts in this mix while still warm.
  • You can also will these donuts with any filling of your choice like nutella, jam,whipped cream etc. Place the filling in piping bag with long nozzle. Insert the nozzle into donuts and press in the filling.
