Doughnuts with Old English spiced sugar

So, this is the truth: I love doughnuts. I just have a soft spot for them; either the one with holes and covered in sugar or ones that are filled with jam or custard, I'm easy; but one thing, the doughnuts must be warm.

My mom makes wonderful doughnuts and I remember eating lots of them growing up.

I was very excited to make my own doughnuts and glad Jamie included this recipe in his book. The dough was not at all difficult to make and I love the addition of the lemon and orange zests to it.

After some frying and when they're still piping hot the doughnuts were then covered with spiced sugar that's made of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, lemon zest, orange zest and vanilla.

Each bite of these doughnuts bring back all the delicious memories from my mom's kitchen.
