Method

  1. Step 1:

    To make the caramel sauce, place the sugar, butter and salt in a saucepan and heat until the sugar has melted then add the cream and stir through.

  2. Step 2:

    Bring this to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes until thick. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

  3. Step 3:

    For the doughnuts, sift together the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar.

  4. Step 4:

    Beat together the eggs, oil and milk then add to the dry ingredients. Mix together until a smooth dough forms.

  5. Step 5:

    Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 1cm thickness. Cut circles out of the dough using a floured cutter, then use a smaller cutter to cut out the centres.

  6. Step 6:

    In a deep saucepan heat some vegetable oil to about 170°C then fry the doughnuts 2-3 at a time by carefully placing in the oil for 3-4 minutes until they are golden brown on the bottom. Then turn them over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until golden in colour and cooked through.
