Step 1

Measure the ingredients into the pan in the order they are listed above. This ensures the best mixing and therefore the best result.

Step 2

Select dough programme and press the start button. When the dough is ready, remove it from the breadmaker and turn onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 2.5cm thick.

Step 3

Use biscuit cutter (7.5cm diameter) or a mug to cut the rounds and use a small cutter about 2 cm in size to make holes in the centres. Re-roll and continue until the dough is all used.

Step 4

Place doughnuts on a baking sheet and allow them to rise till double in size (approximately 30 minutes). Meanwhile heat the oil in a deep fat fryer to 180c. Fry the doughnuts in small batches occasionally stirring and turning them using a slotted spoon.

Step 5

Drain on kitchen paper and while warm toss in a bowl of caster sugar, which has been stored with a vanilla pod for a wonderful vanilla flavour.
