-Two whole eggs
-Oranges half skin
-Two double Armisen envelopes. (The old sodas) or half Royal yeast envelope.
-100 grams of sugar
-50 grams of dry anise, or whatever liquor you want to add. Better not too sweet.

-90 grams of extra virgin olive oil

This is how homemade donuts are made
The donut making process consists of five steps . The first one consists of putting the oil on the fire with the orange peels (or whatever you choose) and heating gently until the peels are lightly golden brown. Then the fire is extinguished and it is allowed to warm up.
The eggs are then beaten until they are white . Add the sugar, the armisen envelopes, the liquor and the butter, and beat everything until the mixture is foamy. The next thing to do is add the flavored oil without the peels and mix the whole mixture again.
