Every home baker should try their hand at making donuts from scratch at least once (or twice) in their life. After all, the smell of the yeast batter as it is rising, and later as it is being fried, will fill your home -- and beckon everyone into the kitchen to help out (or at least to sample the results). Here, the batter is mixed in a Thermomix, which greatly simplifies the process.
- Pour the water in the Thermomix cup and set for 1 minute/98°F/Speed 1.
- Add the yeast and set for 5 seconds/Speed 3.
- Add the milk, butter, egg, sugar and salt and set for 40 seconds/Speed 4.
