This recipe for Portuguese Doughnuts comes from a cookbook that my Portuguese relatives put together and shared with our family.  Portuguese Doughnuts, also known as Sonhos (dreams), are light and airy doughnuts that are coated in white sugar.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • pinch of salt
  • canola oil, for frying
  • granulated white sugar, for rolling


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, butter and sugar.  Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and stir in the flour.  Stir until the mixture forms a ball.  Move the batter to a medium bowl and let cool.
  2. Use an electric mixer to beat in the eggs, one at a time.  Add lemon extract and a pinch of salt.
