Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
proofing 1 hour



  • 260 g All-Purpose Flour
  • 125 ml Milk warm
  • 1 Egg room temperature
  • 50 g Granulated Sugar
  • 35 g Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 5 g Instant Dry Yeast
  • ½ tsp Salt


  • ½ cup Chocolate Sprinkle
  • ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ cup Milk



  1. In a big bowl, combine egg, instant dry yeast, warm milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix thoroughly until the sugar dissolves with a mixer.

  2. Add all-purpose flour, knead the dough for 15 minutes until the dough is smooth, and elastic then add butter and knead again until the dough is not too tacky, about 15 minutes with a mixer.

  3. Cover it with a wet cloth or cling wrap so the dough won't dry out. Proof the dough for 45 minutes or until double the size.

  4. Cut the parchment paper into 12x6 cm. Sprinkle flour on top of the parchment paper to prevent the dough from sticking when it will be fried.

  5. Once the dough has risen, portion the dough of the donuts 40 g each.

  6. Make a smooth ball shape, then flatten with your hand, and then cut using a donut mold.

  7. Put it on parchment paper and proof it again for 15 minutes.

  8. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Fry the donuts at 150°C or 300°F until both sides golden brown. Rest them in the cooling rack.


  1. Combine milk, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar until mixed thoroughly.

  2. Dip the top of the donut then roll it in a chocolate sprinkle.

  3. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • My dough really sticking and that's quite challenging. to handle this, you can add more flour when you place the donut shape in the parchment paper
  • If you don't have the donut maker, you can either use a small round cookie cutter or pull the dough apart with your fingers. If you use a cookie-cutter, reserve the cutout circles to make donut holes or you can use the mineral water bottle cap for the hole.
  • The moment you fry the donut, let the donut be cooked. do not flip the donut too often.
