  1. Use the aforementioned ingredients to make a soft, cool dough by mixing them all together at once.
  2. Then weigh out individual pieces of 45 g each and work into a ball.
  3. Press down the pieces of dough slightly and place on one side on a floured cloth.
  4. The dough is then left to ferment and taken out of the proofer when three-quarters done.
  5. The pieces of dough are then placed face-down in the approx. 160°C to 170°C SENNA Goldfritter and fried for approx. 3 min. on the first side and then for 2 min. on the other side.
  6. The donuts are turned over briefly and plunged into the hot fat before removing from the fryer. Leave to drain thoroughly after frying and dust with icing sugar.
