Homemade donuts recipe

Homemade donuts are one of those nostalgic treats that transport us back to our childhood. They are traditionally eaten at Easter in many parts of Spain.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 500 g of pastry flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g sugar
  • a cup (of coffee) of olive oil
  • 0.5 glass of anise
  • 1 lemon (the zest)


    1. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugar and whisk vigorously. When they are well beaten, add the oil, anise, and lemon zest little by little, without stopping to beat.
    2. Add the flour to the work surface, create a small volcano, and then add the previously made mixture in the center. Mix it in with the flour gradually until you have a consistent dough. Finish kneading with your hands and set aside for 30 minutes.
    3. After the dough has rested, stretch it with your hands, making long sticks about a centimeter thick and joining the ends to form the donut.
    4. Heat a large amount of oil in a pan before adding the donuts. Once golden (but not burned), remove them and place them in a container lined with absorbent paper to absorb the oil. To taste, sprinkle with icing sugar or sugar and cinnamon.


  • You must exercise extreme caution when it comes to the temperature of the oil, as it is very easy for it to burn to a crisp. To avoid surprises, it is best to remove the pan from the heat slightly between batches. We fried them, let them cool, and that was the end of it.
  • Some delectable donuts!
