How to make it

  • Whisk the yeast and 1/2 cup / 110 ml of lukewarm water in a medium bowl to blend.
  • Set aside for 5 minutes or until the yeast dissolves.
  • Whisk the remaining water into the yeast mixture.
  • Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Pour the yeast mixture over the flour mixture, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until you have a well mixed batter.
  • The batter will be thick and sticky.
  • Cover the bowl of batter with a clean dish cloth and set aside in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours or until the batter has risen and doubled in size and small bubbles form.
  • Add enough oil to a large, deep frying pan to come halfway up the sides of the pan.
  • Heat the oil over a medium heat to 375°F / 190°C.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon in another large bowl and set aside. Stir the batter to deflate it.
  • Working in batches and using a tablespoon, spoon the batter one spoonful at a time into the hot oil (you can cook about 8 doughnuts at a time).
  • The batter will still be thick and sticky so the tablespoon will not fill neatly but will help as a guide to ensure the proportions are similar in size.
  • Fry for about 5 to 8 minutes or until the doughnuts puff and become golden brown, turning them occasionally to ensure they brown evenly. While frying, the batter will form round, puffy, irregularly shaped doughnuts.
  • Remove the doughnuts with a meshed or slotted spoon once they are golden and place them on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  • Immediately toss the hot doughnuts in the cinnamon-sugar to coat.
  • Transfer the coated doughnuts to a warm platter.
  • Meanwhile, heat the honey in a small saucepan over medium heat until it is hot.
  • Drizzle the hot honey over the doughnuts.
  • Sprinkle with the crushed hazelnuts and serve immediately.

    Good afternoon Lor, About 15 years ago I went to an International Fair, and ate these and felt like I had died and gone to heaven. I have been looking for the recipe off and on since then but didn't know the name, just the nationality. Thank you for putting it out for me.Have a wonderful day...Cheryl (High 5)
