Sugar-coated, cream-filled or glazed, doughnuts are always a delight to eat. Making homemade doughnuts is actually very simple but did you know that there’s a tried-and-tested secret to making sure they come out light and fluffy?

 

According to Yummy magazine columnist Aileen Anastacio, the secret is the combination of all-purpose flour and cake flour. Using this combo ensures an airy and moist doughnut.

 

More tips from the baker and food entrepreneur when you're making doughnuts at home:

 

1

When preparing the dough, be patient  and give it enough time to rise.

 

2

A vanilla cream filling can be transformed to other flavors: add cocoa powder or a shot of espresso!

 

3

Keep the coating simple. Lightly dust with sugar or for a more indulgent option, drizzle with a sugar glaze!
