5 stars from 1 rating of Homemade Donuts


  • 3 cups water, warm 40 degrees celcius
  • 1 box of dumpling mix flour and yeast, dry
  • 1 cup confectioner or icing sugar
  • one stick or 200 grams butter, mediumly-heated

How to Make Homemade Donuts



  1. Empty the sachet of Dumpling mix and the 2 sachets of yeast into a bowl and blend well.
  2. Stir 3 cups of warm water through the mix until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Spread some flour to our working table where we are going to roll batter into donut using our rolling pin.
  4. Use a circle cutter and a smaller circle cutter in the middle to achieve the shape of a donut. Some donuts have fillings so you might escape cutting the smaller circle and work on your filling like bavarian filling or strawberry jam.
  5. Cover the bowl with a wet cloth and let the dough rise in a warm spot for about 45 minutes.
  6. Heat vegetable oil until it boils.
  7. Fry until golden brown.
  8. Stand in a colander or put over a bowl with tissue to drain the excess oil.
  9. Finish it with glaze like chocolate glaze or just plain icing or confectioner sugar.
