Royal icing

  • In a large mixing bowl, add egg white, icing sugar and vanilla and mix using an electric mixer until white and thick.

Donut

  • Add yeast to warm water and set aside to bloom, 5 - 10 minutes.

  • In a mixing bowl add the flour, castor sugar and salt.

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter, buttermilk, vanilla and add the nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Remove from heat once the butter has melted.

  • Combine the yeast water and spiced buttermilk mixture.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add flour mixture and make a well in the middle of the flour. Break 3 eggs into the well and lightly cover the eggs with flour.

  • Grate the ginger and squeeze the juice from it. Add the ginger juice, raisins and glazed cherries to the flour mixture.

  • Combine the buttermilk mixture and flour mixture, stirring until a ball of dough starts to form.

  • Place the dough on a flour dusted working surface and knead for 10 minutes and shape into 12 equal sized balls.

  • Shape each ball into a donut by making a hole in the middle with your thumbs.

  • Place the shaped donuts onto oiled baking paper and cover with cling-wrap.

  • Allow donuts to rest for 10 - 15 minutes in a warm space.

  • Deep-fry the donuts until golden and crispy.

  • Remove the donuts from the oil and dip them in the brandy glaze.

  • Place the donut onto a cooling rack to allow the glaze to partially set.

  • Dip the glazed donuts in the royal icing.

  • Garnish with more glazed cherries.
