  • 1 Wok
  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Chop Stick 
  • 1 Doughnut Form to get the form. Alternative could be
    • 1 Shot Glass and 1 Rice Bowl


  • 3 Big Potatoes, steam, peel & mash until soft
  • 150 gr granulated sugar
  • 12 gr Instant Dry Yeast
  • 75 gr Margarine/Butter
  • 70 gr Milk Powder
  • 5 Egg Yolks
  • 500 gr Flour
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla  Powder
  • 100 ml Cold Water
  • A Pinch of Salt
  • Vegetable oil to fry the dough

For a Glace

  • 500 gr Chocolate
  • 25 gr Butter
  • 5 sdm Sugar Powder

 How to make it 

  1. Steam the potato. Once it become soft pill out the skin & mash it utill its really soft, set aside & let it cool.
  2. Mix together Flour, Instant dry yeast, Milk powder, Vanilla powder, Caster Sugar, Mix until become a dough. Then add Mash Potatoes, Egg yolks & Cold water knead again the dough. Then add Salt & Margarine, knead until the dough become elastic. Place the dough in a bowl & cover it, set aside for about 15-20 Minutes to rise.
  3. After that you can take a handful of the dough and form it into the typical shape – height : like thumb.
  4. You need to make the classic form now. The easy way is to use the Form that you can buy at any houshold store. If you dont have a Form, I have 2 tricks.
    1. Roll the dough out to a thickness of about half of a centimetre. Next, use the large cutter to cut out the doughnuts. You can then use the small cutter to cut out their centres.
    2. Use the small rice bowl to make the classic shape. Put the shot glass into the middle of the dough and you have a perfect Doughnut shape.
  5. Heat some vegetable Oil in a Wok. (medium- high heat)
  6. While waiting for the oil to heat up, you can prepare a tray by lining it with some paper towel. place the doughnuts into the hot oil a few at a time. Let them cook for a few minutes until golden brown and turn them over with the chopstick or the bamboo-stick.
    Your doughnuts are now ready to serve!
    As a serving suggestion they can be glazed with strawberry, chocolate, or raspberry sauces
    Take them out of the Wok. Remove the oil & drain. Let the Doughnuts cool down then you can add the glace.   

 For the Glace:

  • In a medium bowl: whisk vanilla extract, butter & Chocolate.  Slowly stir in milk  Whisk until its silky and smooth.  If you need a touch more milk to make this a dippable glaze, add a bit more.
  • Dip doughnuts in chocolate glaze and let it rest to harden slightly. You can add some grated Peanuts, Pistacio o.e. as you like. 
  • Notice: They can be glazed with icing sugar, strawberry, raspberry sauces, …

Now your doughnuts are ready to serve…
