Life is all about balance, right? This is how I live my life and enjoying things like donuts is something I never plan on missing out on. Who doesn't love a fluffy, moist, sweet donut that is still warm and dusted in cinnamon sugar? The thought of it just makes my mouth water. What I love the most about ricotta donuts is that they don't contain any yeast therefore, you do not need to allow time to let them proof. This makes it a quick and simple recipe that you can whip up, fry and eat within a good hour from start to finish. Here is my recipe, give it a go and let me know what you think! 

Cinnamon Ricotta Donuts
Makes 10 | 60 minutes
250g ricotta cheese
