No-Fry Doughnuts

No-Fry Doughnuts

2 packages active yeast

1/4 cup warm water(105*-115*)

1 1/2 cups whole milk, room temperature

2 eggs, room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/3 cup shortening

about 4 1/2 cup flour

about 1/4 cup melted butter

In a mixer bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add milk, sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, eggs, shortening and 2 cups of the flour. Blend on low speed for about 1 minute, scraping bowl often. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining flour until smooth, scraping sides of the bowl. Cover; let rise in warm place until double.

Turn dough onto a well floured board; roll around to coat dough with flour. Dough is soft to handle. Gently roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a floured doughnut cutter (2 1/2 inch diameter and 1 inch center hole.)

Place the doughnuts 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets ; cover and allow to double in size.

Preheat oven to 4 25 degrees. Bake the doughnuts for about 8-10 minutes or until golden. Immediately brush doughnuts with butter.

Coatings:

Cinnamon Sugar:

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Place in plastic bag; mix. Toss doughnuts one at a time in mixture to coat.

Chocolate Glaze:4 oz. semisweet chocolate

1/3 cup butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

hot water

Melt butter and chocolate until combined. Add to sugar and vanilla. Stir until combined . Add enough hot water until the glaze is the correct consistency.

Vanilla Glaze:

1/3 cup butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

hot water

Melt the butter and add to sugar and vanilla. Blend together until combined. Add just enough water to create the correct glaze consistency.

  1. Woohoooo! Just looking at these doughnuts make me smile! And no fry? Yes! I feel healthier already..lol. I must try these. (And by the way…thank you for peeking into the earl girl’s blogging world. :-) ).

  2. Maggie, I HAVE to print this recipe out and try it. I LOVE donuts (can you tell how enthusiastic I am about this subject with all the capitalization in this comment?) and I don’t want to deep fry at home. The fact that these are baked is perfect.

  5. So – made them without eggs and they are gorgeous. Have had three people taste and all are happy. Apparently they are like “roscos” – a Spanish dessert….so there you go! No fry doughnuts without eggs become Roscos! – will be adding to my blog at a later stage! :-)

  6. As a college student, I couldn’t justify buying myself a fryer and have always bemoaned my predicament whenever I find a doughnut recipe. I’m so glad that you posted one for baked doughnuts!! I can’t wait to try these out :)
