Preparation steps

1.
Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water in a small bowl. Leave to stand for 5 minutes until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam.
2.
Mix together the warm milk, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in the yeast mixture and stir to combine.
3.
Beat in the butter, eggs and flour until the mixture forms a smooth, soft dough. Cover the bowl and leave to rise for about 30 minutes, until doubled in size. Mix the dough well, cover and leave to rise for a further 30 minutes.
4.
Mix the honey and water in a pan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
5.
Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or large heavy pan to 180 degrees C. The oil should be about 5cm|2" deep.
6.
Scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough per ball with a wet spoon, drop it into the wet palm of your hand and roll it back into the spoon to create a round shape. Do not overhandle the puffy dough.
7.
Drop the dough balls into the hot oil in batches, wetting the spoon each time you make a dough ball. Fry for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
8.
Place on serving plates and serve with the honey syrup. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve warm.

Hi Michael - thanks for the review. I think a bit more sugar would work fine, just make sure it's superfine sugar.

Hi Chloe - you will want to stick with a flavorless oil for frying, as well as one that can withstand high heat. You could try safflower or canola oil instead of vegetable oil.
 
Does changing the oil change the taste of the donuts?
