Easy Flower Shaped Donuts

At this recipe, the flower shape of the donuts (and of course the simplicity of the ingredients) first attracted my attention, I found it fast, beautiful and interesting. After I made them I was absolutely amazed and delighted by their taste and texture. The family appreciated them even more, I enjoyed them to the last detail - I highly recommend you to try them!

At the last step you have as proof a section, it will surely convince you :)


250 ml
Baking soda
1 tsp
1 piece
0.5 tsp
5 tbsp
Sunflower oil
2 tbsp
+ 100ml oil for frying donuts
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
White flour
450 g

Step by step


In a small bowl pour the whipped milk and add the baking soda, mix and leave for 10 minutes.


The egg mixes well with salt, sugar and oil.


Add the egg mixture to the whipped milk - also here add the vanilla, mix.


Finally add the flour and mix with a spoon.


Notice that the dough is quite soft and sticky - but by no means add flour.


There are 2 options here - work on the oiled table, of course you will also anoint your hands.

Or sprinkle the flour on the table and work it into flour, I did so - I sprinkled the table with more flour, with the help of a spoon I took out the dough on the table and lightly kneaded it.


I had help with the kneading :)

It is important here to understand that the dough must be gathered with a little flour, not kneaded until it becomes sticky and hard - so you actually work it with your hands for half a minute, just enough to make a ball of dough. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes.


Spread it in a sheet about 6-7 mm thick and cut round shapes with the glass.


Cut each circle with the knife 4 times on the side, so that the middle is uncut.


Heat the oil well in a pan.

Careful! - Oil should be like fried - not oil bath like classic donuts.

Put the donuts in the pan and fry them over low heat, provided that the oil is very well heated when you add them to the pan.


Make sure they are made very quickly, sit next to them and turn them over when you notice that they have browned on one side.


Remove them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Also make 1-2 more rounds of donuts, depending on how big your pan is. Be very careful not to fry them over high heat, to be able to bake them inside as well.


Optionally, when serving, you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar.


I really liked the fact that you can break "petals" from each donut and of course serve them with your favorite jam.

Good morning!
