Work the ingredients until they come together into a dough, and then knead it for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Let the dough prove for 30 minutes in a bowl covered with a damp tea towel.

Step 5Part 1

Divide the dough into 8 pieces and roll them into a tight smooth ball.

Step 5Part 2

Grease your hands, poke each ball in the centre with your index finger and wiggle it around to make a hole.

Step 5Part 3

Lift the donut, insert both index fingers into the hole, and rotate them as if spinning a wheel until the donut hole stretches to at least 6 cm (2.5 inches).

Step 6

Let the doughnuts prove on a tray lined with baking paper for 15 minutes.

Step 7

Bake the doughnuts at 180°C (355°F) for 10 minutes.

Step 8

Enjoy the donuts as they are, or dip them in a glaze made with 20g of melted ube butter, 30ml (1 fl oz) of oat milk, and 180g (5 oz) icing sugar.
