This is a very easy Ring doughnut recipe that requires NO yeast!
50 g butter
30 ml sugar
3 cups selfraising flour
1 cup buttermilk ( I made my own, added 15 ml lemon juice to 1 cup of milk, let it stand for 10 min to allow it to fuse)
1 teaspooon vanilla essence
I add a few of drops of egg yellow (for colour)
It makes 30-40 depending on the size you want.
You need to melt the butter, add the sugar and mix; add the egg wit your v.essence, and egg yellow and whip again. Gradually add your flour with your buttermilk. On a floured surface u roll the dough abt 1.5 m thick. using a donut cutter. I dnt hv 1 so I go ou style, ( a standard size glass and the top of a small v.essence bottle in order to make the hole in the middle)
Fry it 4 , 3-4 minutes, on high heat as it fry supa kwik and drain on a paper towel…
You may double the batch, which I normally do, as I find these dont last if made in short supply lol!
You may syrup: 1 cup sugar add 2 2 cups boiling water, with 2 cinnamon sticks 2 cardemons..I use 2 cups and 4 cups water for more syrup.
Other alternatives which is just as lulvy is cinnamon mix with sugar for tht cinnamon donut lekkerte, or dunk in chocolate..
