  • Colect the ingredients.
  • Put warm milk (not cold nor very hot) and yeast in a large bowl. Mix well.
  • Add the sugar and salt and mix again.
  • Add egg at room temperature and mix again.
  • Add the flour.
  • At this point if you have a stand mixer with a dough blade, mix it in it for ten minutes. If you don't have it, combine the ingredients well and knead it for about ten minutes.
  • Leave it in a bowl, cover it with a cloth, and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the butter or margarine at room temperature.
  • Mix again in the stand mixer or by hand for 10 minutes.
  • Cover with a cloth again and put it to rest (to inflate) for an average of 60 minutes or until doubled in size (in a place that is NOT cold).
  • Take out of the bowl and hit it on the table about 6 times. Then cut into 8 equal portions.
  • Shape it into a doughnut. Or, you can give it a circular shape. Or, you can shape it into a circle and cut a hole in the middle.
  • Rest them on a large greased plate, or wax paper. Cover them with a blanket and put them to rest for about 20 minutes or so (or until the dough looks a little more puffy)
  • Heat oil in a saucepan or pan to about 358 F ( 181 C). Medium fire should do the trick.
  • Put the donuts in the oil. Turn them over when they are already golden.
  • Remove the doughnuts from the oil when they are golden brown and then put more in to fry.
  • Sprinkle sugar if you like.
  • Ready!!! Enjoy them with friends and family and accompany them with a warm coffee or milk.


If you can't find butter without salt, use with salt, but use half the salt that the recipe calls for.

The two hours of preparation are 10 minutes to mix and knead (with a table or hand mixer), 10 minutes of rest, another 10 minutes of mixing or kneading, 60 minutes of rest (to raise) 10 minutes to cut and then about 30 minutes more.
