Yeast Dough Process

Every doughnut is made with natural ingredients, by hand, fresh everyday. In order to do this our mornings here at the Hole start long before the sun comes up.

    Step 1
    Mixing

    Mixing is the most important part of the entire process, the temperature of the ingredients being added to the mixture is crucial in making the perfect doughnut.

  2. Step 2
    First Proof

    Each and every batch of our Yeast doughnuts goes through a cold proof process of 24 hrs. This process is crucial for flavour development.

  3. Step 3
    Rolling and Cutting

    After the dough has fermented for 24 hrs it is then taken through the rolling and cutting process. This is the point where shape is formed by our expert bakers.

  4. Step 4
    Second Proof

    This is the final stage before frying. This process allows the dough to proof a second time to and create it’s final size and shape.
