Preparation steps

1.

For the dough: Bring water, butter, salt and sugar to a boil. Add flour and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Continue to stir over low heat until it becomes a large lump. Remove from heat and put in a bowl to cool slightly.

2.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs and use a hand mixer to gradually stir into dough. 

3.

Heat butter or oil in a deep fryer or wide pot until it reaches 170°C (approximately 350°F). Test temperature with a wooden spoon. If the spoon bubbles when inserted, the butter or oil is ready. 

4.

Pour dough into a piping bag with a star tip and pipe rings onto parchment paper. Gently slide into the hot butter or oil and remove paper. Cook doughnuts until golden brown on both sides, flipping once, about 8 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. 

5.

For the topping: Combine powdered sugar and rum. Coat doughnuts with powdered sugar mixture when still warm. Let set and serve warm or at room temperature.
