these Doughnuts are a perfect breakfast or dessert that you can eat anytime of the day.




  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 40 grams butter
  • 7 grams of instant yeast
  • 40mL of warm water
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 2.5 cups plain flour
  • 1.5 liters of canola oil for frying


  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons of milk


  • 1/2 cup jam {I used blueberry}


  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan on low heat, then whisk in milk and continue warming until steaming.
  2. Add the warm water to the hot milk, then transfer the mix to the bowl of a stand mixer.
  3. Sprinkle the yeast in the bowl, allowing it to sit and bubble for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the egg, sugar, salt, and about half of the flour.
  5. Using the dough hook attachment, mix the ingredients on low speed until just combined, then add in enough of the remaining flour to give you a formed but slightly sticky dough. Leaving the dough sticky will ensure that your doughnuts are airy and soft!
  6. Knead the dough for about 7 minutes.
  7. Grease a large bowl and place the dough inside. Cover with cling wrap, place in a warm spot and allow to rise for 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  8. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is about 1cm thick.
  9. Use a 5cm cutter to cut out the donuts.
  10. Place the donuts on a floured baking tray, and cover with cling wrap. Place in a warm place for another 15 minutes.
  11. Meanwhile, heat your oil to 180 degrees in a heavy-based saucepan. Sacrifice a donut and test the oil before frying a whole batch.
  12. Fry the doughnuts for about 2 minutes on each side and place them on a roasting rack to cool before glazing.
  13. Whisk together the milk and peanut butter until smooth to make the glaze.
  14. Whisk in the icing sugar, then set aside.
  15. Fill a piping bag with a 5mm round nozzle with the jam.
  16. Take a chopstick and poke a hole through the side of the donuts, all the way through to the other side.
  17. Fill the hole with the jam, using both holes to ensure even distribution.
  18. Cover the donuts with the glaze.
