Savoury and cheesy, these mini doughnuts are the perfect snack before a main course. Use any kind of fresh cheese you like.

1 cup milk
½ orange, zested
300 g anthotyro cheese or another fresh cheese

In a bowl whisk milk, egg and orange zest until incorporated. Add flour in batches whisking until you get a thick batter.
