If you’ve never made doughnuts from scratch, you’re in for a revelation. Not only are they simple to make—the mixer does most of the work—they are downright delicious still wonderfully warm and puffy. This recipe calls for baking, rather than deep-frying, the doughnuts, for a lighter, healthier (and much easier-to-make) version. Because they are made with a yeast dough, you’ll need to allow ample time for rising, first in the bowl and again once their cut into shapes and placed on the baking sheet.

- milk (10 cl. warm)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 230 grams flour

- in the bowl of an electric mixer with a hook attachment, combine flour and sugar.
