  • yield: 15   
  •  Donuts prep time: 5 MINUTES     
  • cook time: 5  mins
  • total time: 10  mins



  • Mixing Bowl 
  • Cast Iron Dutch Oven  
  • Strainer Basket  
  • Wire Rack 


  • 1 1/2 Cups / 190g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Cup / 250ml Greek Yogurt
  • Oil for Frying 

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 1/4 Cup / 50g White Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon


1. To start off making the donuts in a medium-sized mixing bowl measure out the self-raising flour. We’ll need 1 1/2 cups or 190g. The second ingredient for these 2 ingredient donuts is 1 Cup of greek yogurt. Using a wooden spoon give the ingredients a good mix together until you have started to form a dough.

{Note: If you don’t have self-raising flour on hand you don’t need to buy any, especially for this recipe. Simply take one and a half cups of regular standard all-purpose flour and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and give it a quick mix together. This will work for any recipe requiring self-raising flour.}

2. When you can no longer mix the dough with a wooden spoon tip it out onto your work surface and knead for about 30 seconds to a minute just until all the dry flour has been fully incorporated into the dough. Using a small spoon or just your hand’s portion out about a tablespoons worth of dough and roll it into a ball. Use a little extra flour to stop the dough from sticking. Continue this step until you have made all of the little donuts.  

3. When you’re ready to fry your donuts check your oil, the easiest way to do this is with a thermometer, you want it to be about 180C or 350F. If you don’t have a thermometer you can fry one donut first to check the temperature is ideal. It should take about 2-3 minutes in the oil and turn a golden brown. Using a spoon carefully lower the donuts into the hot oil. This is best done in two or three batches depending on how large your pan is so the donuts don’t cool the oil too much and stick together.

4. While the donuts are frying it’s time to prep your toppings,  I’m going with classic cinnamon sugar but you can just drizzle them with salted caramel sauce or chocolate sauce, or leave them plain and have with your favorite ice cream. If you are making the cinnamon sugar too in a small bowl measure out a 1/4 cup or 50g of white granulated sugar. To that add 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon and give it a good mix together.

5. After about 2-3 minutes or when the donuts are golden brown and puffed up use a slotted spoon to remove them from the hot oil. You can either use paper towels or a wire rack to drain off the excess oil. Let them cool for about 30 seconds to a minute while you put the next batch of donut dough into the hot oil. Take your fried donuts and place a few at a time into the bowl with the cinnamon sugar. Toss them around with a spoon until they are completely coated. Set them on a plate to enjoy.
