Easy doughnut balls

I bought blueberries and bananas during lunch last Friday and wanted to make muffins for breakfast. However, my kids ate all the blueberries and bananas that night before dinner so I have no choice but to defer my plan in making blueberry and banana muffins to some other time.

I end up making doughnut balls for tea yesterday. This is a very easy recipe, seriously, I made about 25 doughnut balls in less than 1/2 an hour. It took me about 10 minutes to mix the ingredients together, waited 15 minutes for the dough to rise, and another 5 minutes to heat the oil and fry the doughnut balls.

For those who wanted to give this a try, here's the recipe:

Doughnut balls recipe:

  • 2.5 cups of flour
  • About 2 tablespoons of butter
  • About 5 grams of dry yeast (I used a little less than 1/2 packet of mauri-pan dry yeast)
  • Warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of icing sugar, and more to serve
  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • Mix dry yeast with warm water and put aside.
  • Mix flour and 1 tbs of icing sugar, then rub in the butter.
  • Mix in the yeast and warm water mixture into the flour mixture, add in water as necessary to make a smooth dough.
  • Form small balls using the dough and wait for about 15 minutes for the dough to rise.
  • Deep fry the doughnut balls and serve with icing sugar.
