*This is based on the toppings I used.

You will need:

  • 2 Sheets of Nori
  • 500g Sushi Rice
  • 750ml Water
  • 2 Tbsp Sushi Seasoning (rice wine vinegar)
  • Toppings of your choice


  1. Rinse sushi rice in water and drain.
  2. Take a large pan and pour in 750ml of water, add rice and bring to the boil.
  3. Once the water reaches boiling point, reduce the temperature to a simmer and cover with a pan lid. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. When the rice is almost done it will look a little sloppy but that’s perfect. Take the pan off the heat and leave with the lid on for a further 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the rice should have absorbed any excess liquid giving a sticky texture.
  5. Transfer the rice to a tray or plate with a larger surface area, drizzle over your sushi seasoning and leave to cool.
  6. Once the rice is cool you can assemble your donuts. Take a donut/bagel pan and begin to firmly press the sushi rice into the pan moulds. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  7. After giving the rice a chance to set we can remove the donuts from the moulds, sometimes they will pop out, sometimes they need a little persuasion so use a teaspoon to help them along.
  8. If you’re using a 6 donut pan like me repeat steps 6 & 7 until all of the rice is used.
  9. Place the donuts on a plate and top and decorate with any toppings of your choice, get creative and make them look pretty!
