How To Make Doughnuts At Home, Recipe By Moji

This is a picture of doughnuts made by my 9 year old daughter using this recipe below. I just added the pic now, June,17, 2017.

 These pictures make it look so easy to make and for those of us whose kids love doughnuts, now we can save. Just like her pizza recipe. Moji really took
time to take step by step pics with notes.
Below is the list of  ingredients for this doughnuts



(Shop professional measuring cups and spoons)

Measure all your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl


Gradually add water till it comes together then add your shortening or butter while mixing ( Shop mixer)


 Knead for a few minutes then cover and allow to rise in a warm place for about an hour


 After an hour see where it has reached in the mixing bowl


 Slap onto your work surface and deflate the air


With your clean rolling pin, roll it out but not too thin about the thickness of a cookie is ideal


 Use a pastry cutter or any round object to cut out circles


 Like so


 Gently place on a  lightly floured baking tray.


 To get the hollow shape, use a smaller circle like a bottle top to cut out the middle


 Voila


 Cover and allow to rise a bit for about 20 minutes


 Fry on low to medium heat on a stove


 Same goes for the ones with holes


Doughnuts looking yummy


 I whipped some cream and squeezed it in using a piping bag, this is optional


 Dust with confectioners sugar and drizzle with anything you fancy! Made up a cream/peanut butter and a cream/cocoa powder drizzle.
Get creative!



 Enjoy yummy doughnuts!

    Wow! You make it look so easy! Nice one Moji, thank you. A quick question please. Can the dough be baked instead of fried? I tend to avoid frying anything these days.

    And thanks Aunty Eya for posting.

    ...Telling it like it is!

    2. Sure you can. You may lightly brush with oil to help it brown and have a shine or leave it out all together. It'll certainly be healthier.

    1. The white stuff is powdered sugar. You can buy or pour some sugar in the mill attachment of a blender (the one normally used for egusi) and blend till it becomes powdered sugar. The drizzle I used was cream and cocoa powder / cream and peanut butter. Any other thing you like will also work.

    1. Yes you can bake for a healthier option. To add jam you will need a piping bag if you don't have one you can try using a funnel with a narrow tube or something similar. Same if you would like ketchup
