McDougalls Dunkin Doughnuts with Chocolate Ambrosia Custard

Number of portions: 10
Prep time: 35 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Cost per portion: XX

For these doughnuts we use our McDougalls soft bap mix, which is a versatile soft bread mix that works in a wide range of dishes from savoury through to sweet. We serve this with Ambrosia ready to use custard simply blended with dark chocolate, which thickens the custard to make the perfect sweet dip!


  • • 500g Soft Bap Mix
  • • 330g Warm water
  • • 70g Caster sugar
  • • Sunflower oil for coating the tray
  • • Caster sugar for rolling/coating
  • To serve
  • • 500g Bird’s Custard (ready to use)
  • • 100g Dark chocolate (melted)


1. Lightly oil a tray.

2. Place the McDougalls Soft Bap Mix and sugar in a mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook. Blend in the warm water and mix on a medium speed for 6 minutes.

3. Divide the dough into 30g pieces and mould/roll each piece into think ‘sticks’, then place on the oiled tray roughly 2cm apart.

4. Leave to prove in a warm place (covered with a damp cloth) for 10 - 15 minutes or until the dough has risen and doubled in size.

5. Twist each piece of dough so it ‘knocks back’.

6. Deep fry at 180°c for approximately 5 minutes, turning occasionally.

7. Remove from the fryer onto kitchen tissue to drain off the excess oil, then roll in caster sugar and place to one side.

8. Combine the warm Ambrosia Custard with the melted chocolate and serve with the warm doughnuts (3 per portion).
