  Yoghurt 250 Gram
  Sugar 170 Gram
  Eggs 2
  Vanilla 1 Tablespoon
  Butter 45 Gram, melted
  Flour 500 Gram
  Baking powder 2 Tablespoon
  Baking soda 1 Tablespoon
  Flour 50 Gram (For Dusting)
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 1 Teaspoon
  Powdered sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (For Presentation)

Step 1: Whisk the eggs and the sugar

Start your doughnuts by putting the 2 eggs and the sugar into a mixing bowl.

Whisk them briskly until their appearance becomes very pale and fluffy.

Step 2: Add the yoghurt, vanilla, salt and butter

Next, you will need to introduce the yoghurt, the vanilla, the salt and the melted butter to the dough and mix it all together briefly.

Step 3: Mix dry ingredients

You can now add the baking soda and the baking powder to the bowl of flour and mix them together a little bit.
Next, add this dry mix to the egg mixture and combine them thoroughly.
Be careful not to over-mix the dough or the resulting doughnuts will turn out tough.

Step 4: Roll the dough out and cut it

Begin forming the doughnuts by sprinkling some flour upon the work surface and then dusting your hands with a little more flour.
Now roll the dough out to a thickness of about half of a centimetre.
Next, use the large cutter to cut out the doughnuts.
You can then use the small cutter to cut out their centres.
Set the doughnuts aside and combine the leftover dough with some new dough.
Roll it out again and repeat the process until all the dough is used.

Step 5: Fry

It is now time to fry your doughnuts.
Place a saucepan with the oil over a medium heat.
While waiting for the oil to heat up, you can prepare a tray by lining it with some paper towel.
Now place the doughnuts into the hot oil a few at a time.
Let them cook for about one minute until golden brown and turn them over.
Cook the other side and place them on the tray.
Repeat until all the dough is used.

Step 6: Dust and serve

Place your doughnuts on a plate and liberally dust them with powdered sugar.
Your doughnuts are now ready to serve!
As a serving suggestion they can be glazed with strawberry, chocolate, or raspberry sauces.
