Lemon Donuts

The recipe yields a small batch of around 16 small donuts. Feel free to double-up!!

80ml greek yoghurt
45ml lemon curd
10ml lemon zest
190ml self-raising flour
vegetable oil for deep frying
icing sugar

Add the yoghurt, lemon curd and zest to a mixing bowl and mix together.
Add about two thirds of the flour and mix through.
You should have a very thick, sticky dough.
To test the consistency, break off a piece and roll between your palms. If you can’t form a ball and the dough is too sticky, add sour flour, mix again and give it another try. You want as little flour as possible so that you produce a light, airy donut.
Scoop up 15ml of the dough with a measuring spoon and roll between your palms to make a ball.
Place the balls on a tray lined with baking paper.
Pour some vegetable oil about 5cm deep, into a small saucepan. Heat to 170℃.
Add the donuts to the preheated oil and fry in batches until golden brown.
Drain on kitchen paper.
Arrange on a serving plate and dust with icing sugar.
