  • Mixing Bowl
  • Wok or Large Frying Pan


Doughnut Ingredients

  • 50 g Vegan Margarine
  • 120 ml Soya Milk
  • 2 tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 250 g Self-rising Flour
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp table salt


  • 1 L Sunflower Oil
  • 4 Sheets Kitchen Paper


  • Gently melt the butter over a low to medium heat
  • Now add the soya milk and 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil and mix together. Once combined, take off the heat and put to one side.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, half of the sugar and salt with a fork. Make a well in the centre of the mix.
  • Pour the butter mixture into the well. Combine little by little until a thick dough is formed.
  • Using your hands, roll dough into small flat balls then with your thumb, press a hole in the centre of each flat ball to create a doughnut shape. (You may need to flour your hands for this part to avoid the dough sticking to your hands)
  • Heat up the litre of oil in a Wok or Large Frying Pan. To know when it's hot enough to fry the doughnuts, fry a little bit of dough in the oil. If it goes brown and floats to the top, in 45 to 50 seconds the oil will be ready!
  • Gently lay the doughnuts into the oil using a spatula. Fry for about 2-5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Once cooked transfer the doughnuts onto some kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil. Then roll into a bowl of the remaining sugar.
  • Enjoy with a nice drink 🙂
