Home-made Fresh Cream Donuts

Fresh Cream Donut with white cream filling and with cherries
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Proof Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes


  • 275 ml of milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1½ tsp instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 cups flour
  • Oil(for frying)
  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • ½ cup icing sugar


Warm the milk in the microwave.

Now add the sugar and yeast.

Lightly mix together and leave aside for 5 minutes

In a separate bowl, sift the flour, then add the nutmeg and salt and the 2 tablespoons sugar

Rub in butter, add egg and milk, and make a nice soft dough.

Knead the dough for 10 minutes, to form a soft dough

Cover the dough in a bowl and leave to rise for an hour (60 minutes)

Then punch down and break the dough in 10 to 12 balls

Roll each ball between your palms to the size you want. I made miniature ones

Place on a baking sheet, and cover again for 30 minutes

Then using a knife cut gently down the middle to form a very slightly slit

Prepare your pot of oil or if you have you can also use a deep fryer (180°C/350°F).

It's best and easiest to line a baking sheet with some paper towel to drain the donuts and let them cool down.

Place 3 or 4 donuts (depending on the size of the donuts and the size of your pot) at a time into hot oil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through cooking.

Caution: Beware of oil splatters, it's piping hot and can cause serious burns.

Cream. To prepare the cream, place an aluminum bowl with your whisk in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Pour the cream into the bowl, whisk the cream, and once it starts to thicken, gradually add the icing sugar.

Continue to whisk the cream until its thick and creamlike.

Place in a piping bag and once the donuts are cold, pipe with cream in the slit you made prior to frying it in the oil.

I am using this and the only issue I have is that I did not start earlier! 😢 This is a fantastic feature and plugin, to have on your blog when you share recipes.  Your recipe has a set structure and Google loves it.  Would you like it and have Google include it and show it as a search result when someone searches for a recipe?  Yes OR No?  

My guess would be that you will answer YES to the above.  For that reason alone, it’s highly beneficial to use the WP Tasty plugin!

You can type it out in the body of your post, but having a recipe card that’s aesthetically pleasing and when laid out for sure has a benefit in that it will keep your readers on your page longer to read the full recipe and hopefully leave a comment and try your recipe. Tasty Links
