Preparation steps

1.

Mix yeast with sugar and dissolve in milk. Mix with flour, egg yolks, butter, salt and lemon zest. Knead using the dough hook of an electric hand mixer into a soft dough. Knead until dough pulls away from edges of bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until volume has doubled.

2.

Knead dough vigorously on a floured surface. Roll out until about 1 cm (approximately 1/2 inch) and cut into squares about 10 cm (approximately 4 inches) long. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

3.

Place dough squares top side down in hot oil at 180°C (approximately 350°F). Turn once top side is brown.

Remove doughnuts with a skimmer and drain on paper towels. Cool slightly and then sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
