Doughnuts & Butterscotch

  • 450 g Plain Flour
  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Large Egg
  • 50 g Lactofree Spreadable
  • 100 ml Lactofree Dairy Drink
  • Warm Water
  • 4 Dried Yeast
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • Lactofree Spreadable For Deep Frying

For the Butterscotch

  • Light Brown Sugar
  • 55 g Lactofree Spreadable
  • 150 ml Lactofree Cream
  • Vanilla Extract

To Serve

  • 50 g Caster Sugar


Mix flour, butter, salt and 60g sugar then fold in eggs.

In a small saucepan heat water and milk. Turn off heat and stir in remaining sugar and yeast. Allow to ferment for 5 minutes or until frothy.

In a mixing bowl, add yeast mixture to flour and mix together. Cover and allow to rise for around 20 minutes, or until double in volume.

When risen, knock the dough back down, roll out in a sheet (about a finger’s width) and cut into 6-8cm rounds. Set aside to prove again for 10 or so minutes.

For butterscotch, melt butter in a small pan over a low heat, add sugar and slowly add 60ml cream. Turn up heat and let bubble for 3 or so minutes. Remove from heat and add remaining cream and vanilla. Stir.

Put melted Lactofree spreadable in a heavy bottom frying pan and heat to 190C. Gently lower donut batter into hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Remove from the pan and drain on some kitchen towel.

Drizzle the butterscotch over the donuts to serve.
