Fate Ring Donuts

Fate Ring Donuts

Fate Ring Donuts


  • 350g Fate All Purpose Mix
  • 1 packet of yeast
  • 200ml Loprofin Milk
  • 1 exchange of mash potato (see Note below)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 60g sugar
  • 20mls of vegetable oil
  • Vanilla essence
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a microwave proof jug warm the milk in a microwave (not too hot), then add the yeast and pinch of sugar. Stir then leave to stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add 250g Fate All Purpose Mix, the mash potato, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 60g sugar to a bowl then whisk for 30 seconds using an electric whisk.
  3. Add the milk preparation, 20mls of vegetable oil and a teaspoon of Vanilla Essence to the bowl and stir vigorously with a large spoon for 1 minute or until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add the final 100g of Fate All Purpose Mix to the bowl and stir. Using your hands pull the dough together and place on a floured surface. Sprinkle a little flour on top of the dough and on your hands.  Knead the dough a few times.
  5. Once kneaded, you can divide the dough into 8 (approximately 80g in weight each – depending upon the size of donut you require).
  6. Roll each piece of dough into balls, slightly flatten and poke your finger through to create the hole in the doughnut.
  7. Place on a tray, cover and leave to rise for fifteen minutes in a warm place.
  8. Pour about a half an inch of vegetable oil into a large pan. The oil needs to be about medium to medium high. If the oil starts to smoke it is way too hot. Test the oil with some of the scraps of dough to check when ready.
  9. Cook the doughnuts until golden brown for 2 minutes turning as required to ensure each side is golden in colour, cool on some kitchen paper so that the oil soaks off.

The doughnuts can be decorated with a suitable chocolate spread, icing sugar or caster sugar.

Note:  For the mash potato, either of the following is suitable:

Asda’s Home Style Mashed Potato from the freezer section – Microwave the mash with a fork.

Or, poke some holes in a medium sized potato and microwave (Jacket Potato), when done scoop out an exchange of potato and mash with a fork.

The whole recipe contains just under 1 ½ exchanges which can be divided by the number of doughnuts made.

  2. Hi Emma, glad to hear the recipe worked out for you.

    I haven’t tried freezing the donuts yet, but I don’t see why the wouldn’t freeze well. As long as they are left to defrost naturally rather than using the microwave I would think they would be OK.

  4. Ryan, the exchange is based on the UK system of measuring protein intake. An exchange of mash potato is considered to be 80g cooked weight.

    If you’re interested. this PDF gives some further details on exchanges. The potato information is on page 5.

  8. Hi,
    I have 2 questions. How many donuts (normal size) will this recipie make? And also, if I use less sugar (I don’t like really sweet donuts), can I cut the sugar amount in half, or will that just make the donuts taste weird? Thanks!

  9. They look nice, but with the yeast (approx. 8gr) I think it contains at least 220mg of phe.Or do you use less yeast than 8 gr?

  10. The ‘yeast’ comes with the Fate and is low protein. Fate has a phe content of 5.2mg per 100g.
