Apple Doughnuts

Hi everyone! Today I’ll show you how to make these delicious apple doughnuts. The recipe comes from Christophe Felder, a famous French pastry Chef and is super easy to make. The dough is very light and the apples very soft. You can also make this recipe with a different fruit, like bananas, strawberries,…

For ~30 doughnuts:


  • 100g of flour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 100mL of milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 20g of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of orange blossom water (optional)
  • 6 apples


  • a bit of oil (colza, sunflower,…)
