For the doughnuts
  • 300 grams plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 150 grams caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 75 grams butter
  • 125 millilitres milk
  • 115 grams natural yoghurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 vanilla pod seeds only
For the coating
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 100 grams caster sugar
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C and lightly grease your doughnut tins with a little vegetable oil.
  2. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and rub into the flour as if you are making pastry. do this until the butter is mixed throughout. (Alternatively, pulse the flour and butter in your food processor until combined.)
  3. Next, add the other dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed together.
  4. Add the milk, yoghurt and eggs (beaten) along with the seeds from the vanilla pod. Stir until the wet ingredients and dry ingredients are combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into your doughnut tins or spoon the mixture into piping bags before piping directly into the tins (this will help you avoid making a mess!) Each hollow in the tin should be roughly 3/4 full.
  6. Bake in the centre of the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and springy to the touch.
  7. Cover a plate with the cinnamon sugar and immediately turn the doughnuts out on to the plate. Coat liberally with the sugar and enjoy while still warm!
