  • flour - 1 2/3 cups (400 g) (or as much as it absorbs)
  • eggs - 1
  • butter - 1/3 cup (80 g)
  • baking powder - 1 packet
  • powdered sugar - 3 tbsp + some for sprinkling
  • water - cool, 1 cup
  • orange zest
  • oil - for frying


Beat the egg with the water, add the softened butter and orange zest. Sift the flour with the powdered sugar and baking powder.

Carefully mix the 2 mixtures and knead a soft dough. Cover it with foil and leave it in the fridge for about 30 min.

Shape the ready dough into a roll. Cut it into small pieces. Shape the small pieces into round donuts, while also making a hole in the middle.

Fry them in heated oil. Drain from the oil onto paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar. You can also pour a suitable syrup over them.

Chebakia is actually not a Moroccan donut. Chebakia is a honey and sesame seed pastry made of spiced dough. Moroccan donuts are called sfenj, or bambalouni in Tunisia. They are also called beignet in French :)
