Ricotta Donuts

Beautifully soft and fluffy ricotta donuts that are so moreishly light that you will not be able to stop eating them! So unbelievably quick and easy to make.

 

I am someone who gets cravings in the evenings, especially the sweet kind. Only problem is most of the time it is too late in the evening to make anything as most of the time I am just too tired and just want to relax. One late night my lovey cravings hit me with a vengeance and all I could think of were fluffy fried donuts. They just would not leave me alone to enjoy my evening, so much so that I actually went into the kitchen to make some donuts. It was way too late in the evening to make yeast donuts, but I was craving something like them and so after a whole load of rummaging in the fridge and cupboards I decided to try making some ricotta donuts, after having recently seen them on Australian MasterChef.

 

 

Can you believe I had the most delicious donuts in under 30 minutes?! You could always play around with the flavours by adding lemon zest for example or rolling the little balls of yum in cinnamon sugar. I kept my donuts classic, simply dusted in icing sugar and oh my it was like donut heaven.

 

 

Who would’ve though a late night craving would result in something so delicious, but also so so dangerous. They are so quick and easy you will not be able to help yourself but make them over and over again and you will be gobbling up one after another as they are so deliciously light. Next time you have a donut craving, do try these out, I promise these beautiful little donut bites will meet each and every one of your donut needs!
