Step by Step Method


Step 1

In a small saucepan, heat milk over low until temperature is slightly warmer than room temperature

Step 2

Stir in sugar and pour into the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.

Step 3

Sprinkle over yeast over warm milk mixture and set aside until foamy bubbles appear on the surface, about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Beat in butter, egg, vanilla and salt until smooth.

Step 5

Add in flour and beat on medium high speed until a smooth dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl cleanly and climbs the dough hook, about 5 minutes.

Step 6

Form dough into a ball and place in a well-oiled bowl. Cover with a damp dish towel and place in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.

Step 7

4. Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface until 3/4-inch thick. Using a floured 3-inch round cutter, press into dough and twist to release dough from sticking to cutter. Place dough rounds on the prepared baking sheet. Reroll dough scraps one at a time and repeat. Cover dough rounds with kitchen towel and set aside in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.

Step 8

Prepare a baking sheet lined with a few layers of paper towel.

Step 9

Pour enough oil into a large pot until 3- to 4-inches deep.

Step 10

Set pot with a clip-on thermometer and heat until temperature reaches 350ºF and adjust to maintain 350ºF temperature.

Step 11

Working in batches of 3 or 4, fry doughnuts until golden, about 1 minute per side, for a total of about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer fried doughnuts to prepared baking sheet. Cool.


Step 12

Combine all filling ingredients in a double boiler. Heat over high while stirring until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.

Step 13

Place mixture in the refrigerator until chilled, about 2 hours.


Step 14

Transfer chilled filling into a piping bag.

Step 15

Poke a hole in the side of one doughnut using the back of a wooden spoon until you reach the centre of the doughnut and pipe filling into doughnut.

Step 16

Repeat with remaining doughnuts.

Step 17

Dust doughnuts with icing sugar before serving.
