Since so many of us are spending more time in the kitchen than ever before we decided to collaborate with Italian Street Food vendor Fritto to bring you their amazing homemade donut recipe.

The award-winning Fritto was founded by Luca Sanvittore in 2015 and they have enjoyed pop-up’s at Granby Market, The Baltic Market and Phase One. They’re famous for their Panzerotti (similar to a fried Calzone) as well as their mouth-watering pizza’s and pasta dishes. Just check out their Instagram for drool-worthy content.

So are you ready to make some super fluffy, dangerously addictive, piping hot fried donuts? This is going to be a hit for anyone with a sweet tooth!
