Instructions

Warm the milk and add the yeast to it Mix until the yeast has dissolved

Whisk the egg, caster sugar and brown sugar together in the bowl until the mixture turns white.

Pour the flour, salt, butter, oil and the egg/sugar mixture into the bowl of your dough mixer.

Begin kneading at a slow speed and gradually pour in the milk.
Once the dough is smooth and consistent, little by little increase the kneading speed. Knead for 5 to 7 minutes.

Cover the bowl of the dough mixer with a clean, damp cloth. Leave to rise for two hours. The dough should double in size.

Once risen, knock back the dough and separate into 24 equal sized pieces.
Shape them into rings by first forming them into balls then making a hole in the middle with your finger.

Fit the rings into your doughnut moulds (pre-buttered in advance).

Leave to rise again for 45 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 180°C.

Bake the doughnuts for around 10 to 11 minutes. (stick a small wooden skewer in to check they're fully baked).

Once cooled, top your doughnuts with melted chocolate, royal icing, chocolate spread (or similar) or simply sugar.
