READY IN: 40mins

  • Shift the flour, corn starch and baking powder, add salt and combine.
  • In a separate bowl combine sugar with wet ingredients and citrus zest.
  • Slowly add flour mix to wet ingredients, knead it until just well combined. Add any extra flour that you need so it does not stick to your hands.
  • Grease a bowl and cover with a towel, and let it rest for half hour.
  • Make sure that dough is not sticky, You can either roll it and cut the donuts but I prefer them the old fashion rustic way: take a piece of the dough roll it with your hand to make a log and then put the ends together and make a little donut with it. Great time for kids to help you rolling them!
  • Fry them on a deep skillet at 350 degrees. (I prefer canola oil).
  • Toppings: Basque traditional: powder sugar. But you can put cinammon sugar, chocolate -- .
