Drop doughnuts (video recipe)

Are you looking for the best doughnuts? Soft, fluffy, absolutely delicious doughnuts and yet incredibly easy to make? Well, stop looking! These drop doughnuts are the best doughnuts ever! If you don’t believe me, just make a batch of doughnuts and you’ll see 🙂

These drop doughnuts are my favorite! They are a little moist on the inside and so flavorful… The secret? These delicious drop doughnuts are made with yogurt which keep them moist on the inside.

As I was saying, these delicious doughnuts are incredibly easy to make: all you have to do is to mix all the ingredients. No kneading nor raising time required but for better results you should let the batter rest for about 15 minutes.

Then just drop teaspoonful of batter into hot oil and fry on both sides until golden brown.

See how easy it is? And these drop doughnuts taste amazing!

You may serve these doughnuts with a dust of sugar or any other topping you prefer. I prefer vanilla or chocolate sauce but a fruit sauce or jam would be a great choice. Or caramel sauce 🙂

I love these drop doughnuts and you definitely have to give them a try!
