  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 70 grams lard
  • 14 grams yeast
  • 1/3 cup water (warm)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar (plus extra to cover the doughnuts)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 650 grams flour (plus extra flour for kneading)
  • 1 liter cooking oil
  • ground cinnamon


  1. In a saucepan, warm the milk and add the lard to melt. Set aside.
  2. In an electric mixer bowl, add the yeast and the warm water and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the warm milk with the melted lard, as well as the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and half of the flour. With the flat beater attachment, beat at low speed, then increase the speed. Add the rest of the flour and continue to beat.
  4. Replace the flat beater with the hook attachment. Continue to beat until the batter is soft. Add more flour if needed. Knead for 5 more minutes.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl and place in a greased bowl. Cover and let it rise for 1 hour to double its size.
  6. Remove and slam the dough to remove the air bubbles. Stretch the dough over a surface sprinkled with flour until it is 1 centimeter thick. Cut out the doughnuts using two different sized ring molds. Place on a silpat, cover with plastic wrap, and let them rise to twice their volume.
  7. Heat the oil to 180 degrees Celsius.
  8. Pick the doughnuts up carefully and place in the oil until golden on both sides. Each side takes about 1 minute.
  9. Drain to remove any excess oil.
  10. Cover with sugar and cinnamon while still hot.
  11. Let the doughnuts cool and serve.

Don’t ever pay those outrageous prices for doughnuts again. These are so simple and they melt in your mouth. They are gooey and sweet and pure perfection. I could eat the whole platter of them so I try not to make them too often. I got creative last time and glazed them with chocolate and have even done versions filled with Bavarian cream. You simply must try this recipe.
