Doughnut recipe

I love doughnuts because they taste extremely delicious. Three types of doughnuts can be made:

  • Plain doughnut: plenty of sugar is added when making this doughnut and They are eaten plainly
  • Sugary doughnuts; These doughnuts are made with little sugar but after frying, a large quantity of sugar is then sprinkled on it.
  • Jam doughnuts: These doughnuts are my favorite, they are most times made without any hole in the middle, and jam is added after frying.

This recipe is a simple recipe that you can use to make any of the above-mentioned doughnuts.

Equipment: frying pan, spoon, seive, kitchen napkin

Doughnut recipe ingredients

  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Yeast
  • Butter
  • Water
  • Nutmeg powder (optional)
  • Oil preferably groundnut oil


  1. Test your yeast to see whether it is active. To do this, add a little quantity of yeast in a bowl and add warm water. If bubbles are formed, then the yeast is active.
    • We check the activeness of the yeast because the yeast helps the dough to rise and an inactive yeast won’t do that therefore making your doughnuts flat.
  2. Pour your flour in a bowl and add some sugar
  3. Add nutmeg powder if you have any
  4. 100grams/ half a satchet of butter should be added to it and mix thoroughly
  5. Next, add your yeast and some water
    • little quantity of water should be added at a time to prevent it from being watery
    • In any event that your mixture is watery, more flour should be added.
    • Your dough should be something you can roll in your hands and it shouldn’t stick to your fingers.
  6. place your dough/mixture in any covered container.
    • The container should have enough room for it to rise.
    • It should be tightly covered.
  7. Place your container under the sun for it to rise.
    • If you are in a cold region, you should look for somewhere that’s a bit hot
    • In any event that you couldn’t find a natural source of it, preheat your oven for 10minute, switch it off and place your dough/ mixture in it then cover it.
    • Note: don’t switch on the oven while doing this and use a metal container for this.
    • Natural source of heat i.e sun is the best
  8. Leave to rise for one or two hours
  9. Pour oil in a pot and heat it up
  10. Roll your dough and make a hole in the center
  11. Lastly, Fry your doughnut and enjoy


To achieve sprinkled sugar doughnuts, all you have to do is sprinkle sugar on it and enjoy.
