How to make doughnuts from puff pastry in just 15 minutes


The puff pastry doughnuts (Picture: Aldi)There’s nothing quite like the taste of doughnuts straight from the fryer, coated in cinnamon and sugar.
But making them yourself at home can be time consuming as you often need to use yeast and let your dough rise.
So bakers are loving this recipe from Aldi in Australian, which means you can make the treats in just 15 minutes.
The recipe uses puff pastry and gives them a texture more like a cro-nut, but they sound delicious.
All you need is sheets of pastry, vegetable oil for frying, one egg, ground cinnamon, caster sugar and a little flour to dust the work surface.
To get the height on the doughnuts, you need to cut 36 ring shapes and stack them together.
Once assembled, you can cook in hot oil for five to seven minutes, then remove and roll in the cinnamon sugar while still hot.
After Aldi Australia posted the recipe on Instagram, thousands said they wanted to try it out.
One wrote: ‘These look soo good!’
Another said: ‘Oh wow these look amazing!!’
Six sheets of puff pastry
1 litre of vegetable oil
1 egg 
 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
½ cup caster sugar 
Pain flour to dust your work surface 

Heat oil in a deep fryer (or deep pan) to 180°C.  
Sprinkle flour on a clean work surface. Lay one pastry sheet on floured surface and using round cookie cutters, cut out 6 large circles for the donuts and 6 smaller circles inside the larger circles to form a donut shape. (Each pastry sheet should make about 6 donut shapes, depending on the size of your cutters). Remove the centre circle from each donut and brush each with a little of the whisked egg.
Repeat this process for all 6 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 3 donuts (each 12 layers high).
When the oil is hot enough, using a skewer, lower each donut into the oil and fry for about 5-7 minutes until cooked through.
While donuts are frying, mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl.
Remove the donuts and place on paper towel to drain. While they are still warm, toss them in the cinnamon and sugar and place on a cooling rack until ready to serve.
