  1. Place the eggs, 115g (1/2 cup) of the sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Use a balloon whisk to whisk until light and fluffy. Add the orange juice, 1 tbs of the oil and lemon rind, and whisk until combined.

  2. Place flour in a bowl. Make a well in the centre, add egg mixture. Use a wooden spoon to combine then use your hands to mix until a dough forms.

  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide into 16 portions. Roll each portion into a ball then use your finger to make a hole in the centre of each. Gently stretch the balls to an oval ring.

  4. Combine remaining caster sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.

  5. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add 4 dough rings and cook, uncovered, for 1 1/2 minutes each side or until golden brown. Use tongs to transfer to paper towel. Roll in the sugar mixture, then place on a plate. Repeat in 3 more batches with remaining dough rings.

  6. Serve immediately, with a glass of Spanish sherry if you like.
