Method of Cooking

Doughnuts

Frying Doughnuts 

  • Using a fryer or fill half a saucepan with vegetable oil and heat at 180c
  • Remove saucepan from heat when at temp, and drop batter in
  • Using a tablespoon place five small portions of batter into the hot oil, making sure to flip constantly to ensure an even cook and colour
  • Remove doughnuts from the oil and dry on a piece of kitchen roll to dry up any excess oil
  • Roll the doughnuts in the sugar garnish to finish

To plate 

  • Spread a generous spoon of cheesecake mix to your plate
  • Position your sugared doughnuts on the pate
  • Garnish with kirsch cherries, crumbled welsh cakes, fresh mint, cream liqueur syrup and a dusting of icing sugar.
