One of my main weaknesses is warm doughnuts from Brighton Pier.
The smell, the taste, the amount of sugar left all over your face and fingers.
Now, I'm an absolute sucker for kitchen gadgets and, after a little browsing online recently I decided to purchase a mini deep fat fryer. Not the healthiest of things but, you're allowed a little naughtiness in the kitchen once in a while.
On the day it arrived, I decided to recreate the pier doughnuts at home and, not one to keep anything from my readers, I've decided to share the recipe with you.
You will need
450g plain white flour
7g sachet fast action yeast
2 beaten eggs
75g caster sugar
6 tbs warm water
6 tbs warm milk
50g caster sugar (for rolling the warm doughnuts in)
Bottle of vegetable oil
Turn on the deep fat fryer, off your vegetable oil and switch to about 180 degrees. Once the oil has heated up, fry your doughnuts for around five minutes until brown and done. Please be careful with the hot oil! My fryer is tiny so, I can only fry a couple of doughnuts at a time.
I can't be held responsible for you eating them all!
