Eggless Donut rings

Something special for my vegan friends .....Donuts!!! Ya my daughters favorite. Eggless doughnuts offer a delicious, tempting dessert treat to all sweet lovers who are vegetarians. The freshly baked/fried eggless doughnuts taste awesome and makes for an enticing evening snack dish. Prepare these round, golden brown, sugar dusted eggless doughnuts at home with this easy recipe.





Ingredients:

All purpose flour – 2 cups (1-1/2 + 1/2)
Corn flour (Corn starch) – 1 tbsp
Active Dry yeast – 1/2 tbsp
Milk – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 4 tbsp
Butter, unsalted – 50 gms
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

For the Chocolate Glaze:

Dark chocolate, chopped – 50 gms (I used 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips)
Powdered sugar – 3 tbsp
Cocoa powder – 2 tbsp
Milk – 1/4 cup approx.,

Instructions:

Reserve 1/2 cup flour separately. Grease a bowl with oil and keep it ready.
The butter should be cold and hard. Cut it into small cubes and keep it ready.
In a microwave safe bowl, mix together milk and vanilla essence and microwave at high for 30 secs. This heat would be perfect. You can also do this on stove top.

In a mixing bowl, mix together 1-1/2 cups flour, corn flour, yeast, salt and fine sugar. Make a well in the center and pour the warm milk. Spread your fingers and mix it together. It will become a big lumpy mass.

Add the cubed butter and work it into the dough. The warmth of the milk and your hands are enough and it will easily merge with the dough.

The dough will be sticky at this stage. Add the remaining 1/2 cup flour and knead well for 4-5 minutes. This kneading is really important give good 4-5 min. The more you knead more fluffy donuts you will get .  Place the dough in the greased bowl. Cover and let it rest for 1 hour till it doubles in volume.


After an hour, deflate the dough. Dust your work area with flour and place dough on it. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into 1/2 inch thick slab.


Using a donut cutter, cut out the shapes. As I did not have a cutter, I used cookie cutter held it upside down and cut out a bigger circle.  Then use any small bottle cap to cut out a hole in the middle of the circle. Gather the edges, once again, roll them and continue till all the dough is used up. 


Transfer the cut donuts to a greased baking tray and arrange them side by side leaving enough space in between. Cover with a thick cloth and let it rest for another 20 minutes for second rise.

Heat oil for frying in skillet or pan and fry these
donuts on medium high flame till golden brown. I wanted to make miniature donuts that's why I have used small round cutter if you want bigger you can use proper donut cutter instead . Take out fried donuts and brush melted butter all over . Let it cool for 5 min.

If not very comfortable with fried stuff you can bake it also their is very less difference in taste. For that ..
Preheat the oven at 200 C (400 F) and bake for 10 minutes or golden brown. Take it out and brush melted butter all over the donuts. Let it cool for 5 minutes.

For the Chocolate Glaze/Sauce:

In a small sauce pan, place all the ingredients for the glaze and heat it till the chocolate melts, while stirring continuously using a balloon whisk until it resembles a sauce. This should take just 2-3 minutes. Take off stove and let it rest till it becomes warm and you can see it thickening slightly.

To Glaze:

Transfer the chocolate glaze to a shallow plate or bowl. Holding your Donuts upside down, dip the surface in the glaze and pull it up. Let the extra sauce dribble and turn your hand up in one swift movement and place the Donuts on a plate for the glaze to harden. Place colored sprinkles or silver balls on the glaze if you want to decorate it.
