Cinnamon Doughnut Rings

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Time: 25 mins
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Calories 200 per portion
Fat 7g (1g sat) per portion
Suitable for vegetarians

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil for the deep fat fryer
  • Self-raising flour 250g (9oz)
  • Baking powder 1 tsp
  • Caster sugar 75g (3oz)
  • Egg 1 medium
  • Vegetable oil 1 tbsp
  • Milk 90ml (3fl oz)

For the coating

  • Ground cinnamon 1 tsp
  • Caster sugar 50g (2oz)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in the deep fat fryer to 170°C.
  2. Meanwhile, sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Beat the egg and oil into the milk and add to the dry ingredients, beating with a spoon to bind them together. With floured hands, work the ingredients into a smooth ball and turn out onto a floured worksurface.
  3. Roll out the dough to a thickness of just over 1cm (½in). Flour 7cm (2½in) and 3cm (1½in) plain round cutters and use the larger cutter to cut out rounds of dough and then cut out the centres using the smaller cutter. Re-roll the trimmings and cut more rings as necessary. Mix the cinnamon into the sugar in a small bowl for coating the doughnuts.
  4. Cook the doughnut rings 2–3 at a time. Lower them carefully into the hot oil and cook for 3–4 minutes until golden on the bottom and then turn over and cook for a further 2–3 minutes, until they are an even golden colour and cooked through.
  5. Lift onto kitchen paper to drain briefly and while they are still hot dip them in the cinnamon sugar and turn them over so they are evenly coated, shaking off any excess. Place on a wire rack to cool.

National Stationery Week

National Stationery Week & the London Stationery Show

What was your favourite stationery product as a child?

I had many bits and pieces over the years but my most treasured items were a tiny scented eraser (remember those?) in a little plastic box with a lid and a shiny turquoise pencil with a sparkly gem on the end (I still use this though it’s quite short now after many years of sharpening).

As a child I adored stationery and still do,
so I am immensely excited to be travelling
down to the London Stationery Show today.

London Stationery ShowIt’s going to be a hectic three days building the exhibition stand and sharing our diaries with the trade but I can’t wait to show off our new products. Maybe I will even be able to pilfer a new sparkly gem pencil!

Many pontificate about the death of the paper diary with the widespread use of the smartphone but I think there’s no comparison. You can’t flick easily from week to week to view your plans on a phone – and there’s certainly no weekly recipe sat on the page to inspire you. Amongst many other useful things, our diaries also have a handy pocket to store bits of paper, vouchers and cards – phones don’t have pockets.

Bias aside, I think paper diaries have a valuable place in our stationery repertoire in 2016 and for many years to come. Hurrah for stationery!
