    Ingredients for donuts
    500 g flour -
    1 cup of warm milk - 250 ml
    4 yolks of medium eggs
    40 g of sugar - about 3 full tablespoons
    25 g of fresh yeast or 7 g of dry yeast
    50 g melted and cooled
    pinch of sea salt
    2 tablespoons of spirit or rum - may be omitted

    1 liter of oil or lard for frying donuts

    Ingredients for lemon icing
    3 tablespoons of lemon juice - 18 g
    10 tablespoons of powdered sugar - 120 g

    Other extras
    80 g of any marmalade for stuffing donuts
    80 g of candied fruit peel

    Mix yeast, half of warm milk, 1 tbsp sugar and few tbsp of flour.

    Set aside for few mins.

    In your mixer with a hook attachment add the yeast mixture
    and all the other ingredients. Knead the dough for about 5-8min.

    Cover and put in warm place to raise for about an hour.

    After the dough has risen, roll it out,
    make sure it’s not rolled out too thin.

    Using a cookie cutter cut out your doughnuts.

    Cover with a towel and let them rise for another 15 min.

    In that time warm up your oil.

    Once your oil is hot (175C), fry your doughnuts until golden.

    About 2-3 min per side.

    Rest the doughnuts on paper towel to absorb the extra oil.

    Once they cool down, glaze them and devour
