➥Work the reserved 1 cup of flour into the dough a little bit at a time until a soft dough is formed.

➥Fry in a preheated Oil of about 375°F until golden brown turning halfway between. Enjoy!


NOTES ON HOW TO MAKE DOUGHNUT/DONUT


Keep it in mind that the softer the dough the better the outcome of the doughnut.

In order to get the best out of your Yeast Doughnuts make sure you use the least possible flour as you can when kneading because the quality of your dough has a lot to do with the quality of your doughnuts so it’s good to maintain a roll-able soft and moist Dough.
