Doughnuts, amongst a few other snacks, are one of the common and favourite snacks in Nigeria.

Doughnut (which is similar to puff puff, but richer in taste because of the milk and butter) is a fluffy ring snack made with flour, butter, sugar, milk and yeast and sometimes filled with jam.

4. Transfer the dough into a neat and bigger bowl. Cover it with a towel and leave it for an hour. The dough is expected to rise to twice its initial size.

5. Take the dough and roll it out on a flat surface. Using a doughnut cutter, cut the rolls into different doughnuts cut out. (If you don't have a doughnut cutter, you can use any round object like the rim of a glass cup and a bottle cap to make holes in the middle).
