How To Make Doughnuts

Preparation method:

1. Sprinkle the yeast over two tablespoons of the warm milk with half a teaspoon of the sugar. Place in a warm place to rest for 15 minutes, or until foamy.
2. In a large bowl, stir together flour and salt into one tablespoon of the sugar.
3. Pour the flour, the rest of the milk, the melted butter and the egg into the yeast mix. Mix to make a dough and then knead, cover the bowl and leave to stand for 45 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.
4. On a floured work surface, knead the dough for five minutes until smooth, then divide into 12 balls and place in a warm place for 30 minutes, or until they have doubled in size.
5. Heat the oil in a deep pan until it reaches 190C/375F, or a cube of bread dropped in sizzles and turns golden in 30 seconds. (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.)
6. Gently lower the dough balls one at a time into the hot oil, in batches of two or three, and fry for 3-5 minutes or until golden-brown, and then carefully turn over. Remove from the hot oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
7. Roll the hot doughnuts in the remaining sugar. Make a small slit in the doughnut with the tip of a knife, and fill with a teaspoon of jam. Serve.
