How many times would you wish to have donuts with your morning coffee, but you didn’t? Me, almost every day! Good news, now you will have, because of this very simple and quick donuts recipe.

My favorite topping is crystal sugar and cinnamon. But, I also like them with my homemade strawberry jam.

Extra tip, try frying them in small balls, instead of larger donuts with a hole, and use honey and cinnamon for topping. Eat them hot as soon as you fry them so you can try a very popular and traditional Greek dessert!

Directions

  1. In a large bowl add the flour, the baking powder, the sugar, and mix them with a spoon.
  2. Add the milk, the egg, the olive oil, the vanilla extract, and mix again all the ingredients with your spoon.
  3. When your dough won’t be able to be mixed with your spoon anymore, coat your hands in flour, and knead it.
  4. Add some more flour to your hands because the dough is sticky or dust your working surface with flour, then roll out the dough into little flat balls, 1-1.5 cm thick, 10 cm width, and 2cm hole in the center. (You can use two round cookie cutters of 10 and 2 cm size or a 10cm cup and then use your thumb to make a hole in the center of each donut).
  5. Heat the sunflower oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat.
  6. Lay the donuts carefully with a spatula and fry them for 2 minutes on each side until they are golden brown and crispy. *Fry the donuts in 2 batches.
  7. *Before you start frying the donuts, mix the cinnamon and the sugar into a bowl if this is your choice to serve them.
  8. Remove the donuts from the pan and
    1. add them to the bowl with the cinnamon and the sugar, if you choose this topping for your donuts, and coat both sides well.
    2. Or, wrap the donuts in some paper to absorb the extra oil and then serve them with your favorite dip (strawberry jam) or topping (honey and cinnamon).

Enjoy!

Notes

    • Add the donuts to the bowl with the cinnamon and the sugar immediately after you remove them from the pan. This is the right way to enjoy them with a delicious crust of sugar and cinnamon.
