I made these coconut doughnuts yesterday. Everyone loved them! Here is how I made them:
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 25 mins


2 cups all-purpose flour
A quarter teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt
A quarter cup extra-virgin coconut oil
Half cup coconut milk
1 egg
A third cup sugar
1 litre oil for frying


Put oil in a pot and set to heat on medium heat.

Put all your ingredients in a bowl and mix until everything is well incorporated. The mixture should have the consistency of puff-puff batter. So if it is too hard, add in a little water to bring it to the right consistency.

Now use your hand to take some of the mixture and put into the oil to give you the desired size balls. If getting the right shape with your hands is too hard, use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture and put into the oil. Avoid crowding the pan with many doughnuts at once.

When one side is golden brown, flip to the other side and remove when it is golden brown. Place on paper towel to drain and get cold.


If you can lay hands on coconut flavour, a few drops in the batter will be a great boost in this recipe.
