Nowadays more and more donuts chain stores are blooming across Malaysia. Names like Big Apple Donuts, Dunkin' Donuts, J Co Donut and Missy Donut are no longer a stranger to us.

I am a fan of donuts especially Big Apple Donuts. I luv those soft and fluffy donuts. Here I would like to share the recipe that we use when we baked these donuts during one weekend. It produced soft and fluffy donuts. This is the recipe my aunt always use when she bake donuts. It never fail her.

See those soft and fluffy donuts sitting nicely on a plate... I just have the urge to have a bite into it when I'm writing this post.



500g high protein flour
50g milk powder
100g castor sugar
75g butter
3 egg yolks
2 tsps instant yeast
225ml water


1. Put ingredients in mixer and knead into smooth dough, left it to rise before proceed to step #2.

2. Flatten dough (~ 1cm) and use a doughnut cutter to cut out doughnut shape.

3. Heat oil in wok, reduce to medium heat, add doughnuts and deep fry until golden brown.

4. Remove and coat with castor sugar.
Hope you'll like this recipe.

    Those look sooo professional! Well done. I've only made doughnuts once. They took all day to do but were so worth it in the end. Yours look 100 times better than mine did though!

    No problem!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Will try and see :-)

    Bwahaha after looking at your donut pictures, I feel less weird as you also coat the donuts with a lot of sugar too. I love my donuts to be 'extremely well' coated with sugar :)

    Ok so I decided to proceed with this recipe, high protein flour is bread flour... made the dough, due to the butter the dough was very easy to handle! left it to rise for 1 hour an no difference, so i left it for another hour an still! no rising has taken place!(is your measurements for yeast correct? ) then rolled out(cut 26 donuts) an fried, i noticed that they sink to the bottom an burnt a little due to them sinking an staying to the bottom, they eventually float after about 2mins of frying and to my surprise, they were still raw and doughy on the inside! worst ever recipe! all of you that commented should of at least tried it out. well best of luck to anyone else wasting their time making these flop donuts... look for doughnut recipe that calls for mashed potatoes! those are 100% fluffy pillows!

    OMG! This is the BEST donut recipe ever! I searched all day today for a donut recipe and by chance I stumbled on yours. I have tried making donuts before but they came out flat and dense. These on the other hand were so light and fluffy! In fact I think it would be safe to say that these are some of the best donuts I have tasted. They looked exactly like the ones in your picture. Thanks so much for posting this! (oh and for all of you who have doubts about this recipe, forget about what the other guy said above, he must've done something wrong or he is spamming, this recipe rocks!)
