Valentine's Day - Eggless Donuts / Doughnuts


Wish you all a very happy Valentine's Day :)

Yup!! I totally agree to the point that Valentine's day is a little over rated, but how does it bother for people like me who just want a reason to celebrate and make special dishes! ;)

Ofcourse I can also hear buddies who know me well, whispering "Why is this little spinster celebrating??" Love is an universal feeling and it can be the love for my family as well ;) awwww now thats sounding too senti. Let me stop beating around the bush and make it simple. I am dedicating this post to all the love in the world. :)

Let me also dedicate it to the yet to come "invisible man" of my life :P


Doughnuts or donuts are one of the best fried snack I love to munch on. Infact I dint even know it was a fried for long. I can totally forgo my guilt for such incredibly yummy doughnuts. :)

I had to go egg-less since I wanted the couple at home(mom and dad) to enjoy it as well :)

The fresh yeast that I got to make these worked so well that my doughnuts were so soft and lite. I am sure I can eat at least three on a go ;)

Aren't they irresistible???!!!



All purpose flour(Maida) - 1 1/4 cup
Fresh yeast - 2 tsp
Milk - 1/4 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Butter - 1 tbsp
Powdered Sugar - 3 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp



Warm the water and add the yeast and a tsp of sugar to it. Leave it untouched for ten mins. Then mix well till the yeast dissolves.

Combine the flour, powdered sugar, salt, vanilla essence, milk and the yeast mixture together and knead into a soft dough.

Bring the butter to room temperature and mix it to the dough and knead again till the dough is smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in a bowl and cover with cling film. Leave it untouched until it doubles. It would take around 20-40 mins.


Press the dough lightly to remove air and knead softly. Now roll out the dough to 1/4" thickness on a well floured surface. Use cutter and cut out the desired shape and leave them on floured butter paper for another ten mins until it doubles again.

Heat oil in a pan. Carefully lift the dough rings and fry them in hot oil on medium flame till golden brown in color.

Donuts are ready :)


Cinnamon sugar glaze:

Powder cinnamon and mix it with some caster sugar. Spread this on a plate and dip the doughnut in it until it gets coated with sugar on all the sides.


Sugar icing:

Take few tsps of icing sugar in a bowl and add desired food color to it. Add just a few drops of water to it and mix well till it forms a paste. Fill this in a paper cone and draw desired designs on the doughnut or simply drizzle it over the doughnut.


Chocolate glaze:


Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Cocoa powder - 4 tblsp
Milk - 5 tsp
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and see to that it doesn't form lumps. The tickness of the glaze is upto you. You can adjust the quantity of milk to make it thick.

Dip the doughnuts in the glaze and allow it to set for 10 mins.

The way I see it, Valentine's Day is just another great opportunity to tell the people you love how much they mean to you. But keeping out the commercialism is important.
These donuts look amazing.

Thank you for sharing. Just tried this recipe, it's amazing and so simple. I let the dough rise for 90 minutes, and it worked out great. Also worth going the extra mile to source the fresh yeast. Thank you!
