Quick-mix Doughnuts

Sunday cooking is sorted with these little crispy crunchy parcels of fluffy soft sweet deliciousness 



  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup rapadura or brown sugar
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup sparkling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Icing sugar and cinnamon to dust
  • Light olive oil to fry in


  1. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, olive oil, salt, sparkling water and vanilla in a bowl with a metal spoon.

  2. Heat oil in a saucepan on medium and test a little dough to see if it’s hot enough.

  3. Once the test piece of dough begins to bubble quickly, drop a tablespoon of dough at a time into the oil. You can fry 2-3 doughnuts at a time. They will puff up and turn golden brown when ready.

  4. Drain on paper towel and repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Dust with icing sugar

  6. Serve while hot.
