  • Combine the water, butter, sugar, and flour in a saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat.
  • Stir for about five minutes, until the batter becomes a shiny ball, and remove from heat.
  • Add one egg at a time, beating vigorously for about 3 minutes after the addition of each egg.
  • Add the vanilla, citrus rind, and nutmeg and beat to combine.
  • Drop by the teaspoonful into deep fat heated to 375F (190C) and cook until golden, turning if necessary (they tend to turn themselves).

  • Serve immediately.


Try these with a cup of coffee and you will never look at a donut again.
