Go ' Nuts' with these Donuts

Isn't these little donuts looking cute ? They taste good aswel . These donuts brought back my  childhood memories. Every year , even now there will be a three day Indo - Srilankan Carnival / Fair happening near my house in convention center . So we used to go as a family . At the entrace there will be a donuts stall . Freshly fried mini donuts with simply dusted sugar on it . Ohhh yummm. There will be always a big line waiting to buy these donuts. We never miss to buy these donuts anyways.. They were soft , crispy and tastes soooo good.  

This month's challenge at Eggless Baking Group  was suggested by  Jayanthi from Sizzlingveggies . Jayanthi had suggested Donuts. It was quite challenging to make these Eggless Donuts. But it was fun to make . I wanted to make the replica of the Carnival Donuts , so i  just fried the Donuts and sprinkled the sugar on it . Later removed the excess sugar .

I searched so many recipes online , but was not satisfied with any , then came up with my own.    Initatally i thought of baking the donuts and then i fried them . I baked few donuts too and couldn't take a pictures of baked donuts.


APF - 2 Cups + little more for dusting
Instant Yeast - 1 TSPN
Milk - 1/2 Cup ( Warm milk or Room Temperature)
Sugar - 3 TBLSP
Vanilla Essence - 1/2 TSPN
Salted Butter - 2 TBLSP
Mashed Banana - 2 TBLSP

Oil- To fry
Sugar -  To sprinkle


1.  In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together with 2 TBLSP of butter.
2. Now add Milk , Mashed Banana and Vanilla Essence.
3. Using a dough hook knead everything together  aproximately for 7-8 minutes. It helps for a fluffy and soft donuts.
4. Place the dough in a clean bowl , close it with a wet and clean towel . Allow it to raise for an hour.
5. Once the dough is doubled , Punch it and release the air.
6. Roll out  the dough , Cut it using a round cookie cutter.
7. Arrange these Donuts on a greaced baking tray.
8. Allow it to rest for another hour by covering it with a wet towel.
9. Heat the oil in a pan , once the oil is hot drop these donuts and fry them.
10. Once these dounts are golden brown , remove it from the oil , drain the oil and place it on top of the paper towel.
11. Put some sugar in a clean box  and place these warm donuts .
12. Give it a good shake .
They are ready to eat . Donuts should be eaten little warmer .

The same dough can be used for the Baked Donuts too !!!! I did bake ,but before clicking a picture baked donuts were over .

  4. Hi Saranya, your donuts look great ! I had no idea that eggs can be replaced by bananas even in yeasted goodies. was just wondering if the banana smell or taste is evident afterwards. I'll really like to give your recipe a try.

    1. Hi Dear , I had already made a pull-apart bread using Banana. So this time i was a bit confident making donuts. I just added two TBLSP of mashed banana.There was a slight taste of banana but its not notable.Do try it and let me know how it turned out :)..

  5. Among the few types of desserts/sweets, donuts are hard to say no. That spongy inner texture and the sugary coating does say why I tempted over their donuts.

  6. Your doughnuts look wonderful and delicious. I crave for a good doughnut from time to time. These are adorable, light and fluffy. I want to sink my teeth into one right now! Thank you so much for sharing.
