Malta might have started relaxing it’s restrictive measures however nothing stops us from baking some more…

Here is how to make Krispy Kreme doughnuts according to Nicko’s kitchen.


  • Two cups of full fat milk

  • Half a cup of softened butter or margarine

  • Three quarters of a cup of white sugar

  • Four large eggs

  • Five cups of self-raising flour

  • Two teaspoons of dried yeast

  • Nutmeg

  • Salt

  • Canola oil (for deep frying)

  • A round cookie cutter


  • Vanilla essence

  • Three cups of icing sugar

  • Half a cup of water


Before starting the dough, make sure you have a large, round cookie cutter to shape the mixture into individual pieces.

  1. Add two cups of milk, one teaspoon of salt and half a cup of softened butter into a jug and heat in the microwave for one minute until warm.

  2. Add half a cup of white sugar, half a teaspoon of nutmeg and four beaten eggs to the heated mixture and whisk until combined.

  3. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl, adding two teaspoons of dried yeast and a quarter cup of sugar. Whisk again.

4. Add five cups of self-raising flour, one cup at a time, and mix well until the dough becomes thick and sticky. Leave dough to rest for one hour.

  1. Dust a wooden board with flour and knead the dough for two to three minutes, taking care not to handle the dough for longer than three minutes as ‘over-kneading’ can prevent it from rising when fried.

  2. Roll out the dough and shape into individual pieces using a large, round cookie cutter, making a small hole in the centre to create the ‘ring’ doughnut effect.

  3. Fry in canola oil in a deep-fat fryer or deep skillet pan at 340 degrees for two minutes on each side until golden brown and puffy, draining excess grease on a paper towel.

  4. To make the classic Krispy Kreme glaze, add three cups of icing or confectionery sugar into a large bowl, along with half a cup of water and one teaspoon of vanilla essence. Mix until smooth.

  5. Ice both sides of the doughnut and leave to set for 10 minutes before enjoying, still warm.
