Let's Talk Taste:
Tastewise these cute donuts feel 10-times better than store-bought ones. They are soft, fluffy, and the gorgeous chocolate glaze on top completes them like nothing else. The beautiful sprinklers add a touch of color and crunch onto our donuts. The idea of shallow frying is simply excellent. It makes them crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
How to make eggless donuts at home without yeast
It's just a matter of 30-minutes and on the other side of it, you will have beautiful homemade Old-fashioned donuts starring at you beckoning you to have a bite.
My Donut recipe is probably the easiest donut recipe that you will ever come across. I prefer to keep them shallow fried because of many reasons. First - it tastes YUM. Second - it is sorta healthy-ish.
To add that professional touch to your donuts, I recommend that you use buttermilk. In case you don't have buttermilk at home this is what you can use instead.
1 Cup Buttermilk substitute - 1 Cup milk (at room temperature) + 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice/ 1 tablespoon White Vinegar
you give them a slight stir with a spoon and let it rest at room temperature for 30-minutes. It will begin to coagulate and slightly curdle. This is exactly what we need to make fluffy homemade donuts.
Finally to add that touch of fragrance and aroma I have add a pinch of nutmeg. You could also add some cinnamon if you want.
For the Dough I mix my dry ingredients with my wet ingredients. For the Dry Ingredients, I have used Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and some nutmeg. For wet ingredients, I have used sugar, buttermilk, and some melted butter.
I mix the dough with my hands because that way I get better control of my dough. I can feel if it's proper or not.
Once the dough is kneaded I roll it out with a rolling pin and use one large and one small cookie cutter to cut out donut shapes.
I also need some vegetable oil for frying my donuts. In a deep saucepan, add some oil. Remember we are gonna shallow fry it. So, don't add too much oil. Just enough to reach up to half of the donuts.
When the oil is bubbling hot, carefully place them one by one in the oil, and in about 10-seconds they will begin to fluff up. Turn them over and cook the other side once it's done keep them on a plate lined with parchment paper or tissue paper so that it soaks away the excess oil. PS: In case you are like me who don't mind a little oil or fat, just enjoy them as it is.
You will know that your donuts are done when they look golden brown on both sides and they are slightly puffed up.
Transfer them to a wire rack and let them cool down. Prepare a chocolate ganache and dip your donuts halfway, sprinkle some confetti and your homemade eggless donut is ready.
What is the need for Baking Soda when we are adding Baking Powder?
The truth is Baking Soda or Bicarbonate of soda is necessary to react with the acids in buttermilk to make your donuts rise. But, if you got a problem with baking soda you can always skip it. It won't make much of a difference.
Can I Use Cocoa Powder?
Yes, Many people prefer using Cocoa powder to make chocolate donuts. It will make your donuts a little bit more chocolaty. But, make sure that you sift cocoa powder before adding it to your flour.
What should be the temperature of the Oil for Frying Donuts?
Your oil shouldn't be too hot. It should be between 365°F to 370°F which is around 180°C to 190°C. In case your oil is too hot, then lower the temperature before frying as you don't want to burn them. They will be crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
