honey puff doughnuts

Honey Puffs

These Honey Puffs are a delicious little snack, best when eaten very fresh and warm.

Whilst the doughnut mix is fairly simple, by adding a varietal honey of your choice the honey puffs can be given more distinctive flavours.

Honey Puff's
  • 7 g active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • ? tsp nutmeg, freshly ground
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil
  • Topping
  • Honey
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon, mixed with ½ cup finely crushed walnuts or almonds
  1. In a large bowl, mix yeast and sugar into half cup of the warm water.
  2. Wait 5 minutes, then stir in remaining 1½ cups warm water along with the flour, salt, nutmeg and vanilla. Mix until dough is thick and smooth.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size, about 1–1½ hours.
  4. Pour oil into a deep fryer, or saucepan making sure there is at least 2 inches between the oil surface and the top of the pot. Heat the oil.
  5. Working in batches, slide heaped tablespoon size dollops of the batter into the hot oil, making sure not to crowd the pan. The dough will puff up and float to the surface. Turn occasionally, until batter is a crisp, golden brown, about 3–4 minutes.
  6. Remove carefully with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Place drained puffs on warm platter and keep warm.
  7. To serve, place 4 or 5 fried puffs into a bowl, drizzle honey over and dust generously with cinnamon and nut mix.
  8. Honey puffs are best if eaten warm, the same day they are made.
