Tick off the ingredients as you buy them

  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons dried yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 500ml Moro Delicado Light Taste Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • ½ cup strawberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon water, extra

Combine caster sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside. Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt together and make a well in the centre. Lightly beat egg and mix with 1 tablespoon Moro Delicado Light Taste Olive Oil, vanilla and lukewarm water and stir into flour to form a thick batter. Cover and stand in a warm place for 20 minutes or until doubled in size. Heat jam and water together to form a sauce. Heat remaining Moro Delicado Light Taste Olive Oil in a wok or large saucepan and deep fry spoonfuls of mixture in batches over medium heat until puffed and golden on one side, before turning over to cook on the other side. Quickly toss doughnuts in cinnamon sugar and serve immediately with Hot Jam Sauce.


Spray metal spoons with Moro Pure Spray Extra Virgin Olive Oil when forming doughnuts so the batter will slip off the spoon easily.
