Here’s how to make them:

Puff Pastry Doughnuts


  • Six sheets of puff pastry
  • 1 litre of vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • Plain flour to dust your work surface


  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer (or deep pan) to 180°C.
  2. Sprinkle flour on a clean work surface. Lay one pastry sheet on floured surface and using round cookie cutters, cut out six large circles for the donuts and six smaller circles inside the larger circles to form a donut shape. Remove the centre circle from each donut and brush each with a little of the whisked egg.
  3. Repeat this process for all six pastry sheets. Stack the cut donut shapes, one on top of the other, until you get a stack 12 layers high for each donut. Set each completed donut aside and continue making the stacks until you have three donuts (each 12 layers high).
  4. When the oil is hot enough, using a skewer, lower each donut into the oil and fry for about five to seven minutes until cooked though.
  5. While donuts are frying, mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl.Remove the donuts and place on paper towel to drain.
  6. While they are still warm, toss them in the cinnamon and sugar and place on a cooling rack until ready to serve.
