Nutrition: per serving



  • 250 g All-Purpose Flour
  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 7 g Yeast Instant
  • Salt
  • 120 ml Milk Whole, Lukewarm
  • 1 large Egg
  • 30 g Unsalted Butter Unsalted, Softened
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Vegetable Oil For Frying
  • Sprinkles For Decoration

For The Glaze

  • 100 g Dark Chocolate Chopped
  • 30 g Butter Unsalted
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Milk Whole
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Combine the flour, caster sugar, instant yeast, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together lukewarm milk, egg, softened butter, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until a dough forms.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for approximately 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Return the dough to the mixing bowl, cover it with a clean tea towel, and let it proof in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  • Once the dough has risen, roll it out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1 cm. Use a round cutter to create donut shapes.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan to 180°C, using a kitchen thermometer to monitor the temperature.
  • Carefully place the doughnuts into the hot oil, frying for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn golden brown and puff up.
  • Remove the doughnuts from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or by using a double boiler, melt chopped dark chocolate and unsalted butter together until smooth.
  • You can do this in the microwave by heating in short bursts, stirring in between, until fully melted, or use a double boiler on the stovetop.
  • Once the chocolate and butter are melted, remove them from heat and stir in powdered sugar, whole milk, and vanilla extract until the glaze is smooth and well combined.
  • Adjust the glaze’s consistency by adding more milk if it’s too thick or more powdered sugar if it’s too thin.
  • Allow the chocolate glaze to cool slightly, ensuring it remains in a liquid state for dipping the doughnuts.
  • Dip each warm donut into the prepared chocolate glaze, coating one side or the top according to your preference.
  • Place the glazed donuts on a wire rack or a tray lined with parchment paper to allow any excess glaze to drip off.
  • Generously sprinkle them with colourful sprinkles.
  • Serve your delectable sprinkle donuts immediately.
