One of the most popular fried dough dish dessert loved across the globe is Donuts, You can serve it as is or eat with sugar/chocolate or various glazes as per the taste. I have made eggless version and have provided step by step instructions to prepare it. I have used Chocolate spread for glaze, we generally have some or the other chocolate spread at home, you can directly apply the spread on donut or do it the way I have done it

Do let me know how it turned out 🙂

Preparation time: 100 mins Cooking time: 20 mins Total time: 120 mins

Servings: 9


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 tbsp instant active yeast
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm milk
  • 3.5 tbsp soft unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp curd
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Frosting

  • 7-8 tbsp Hershey’s/ Nutella or any chocolate spread
  • 4-5 tbsp heavy cream

Steps to prepare

  • In a bowl, mix flour and baking soda
  • Make 3 wells in flour mix, add yeast, sugar and salt respectively. Gently mix everything well
  • Add vanilla extract, butter and curd
  • Now add lukewarm milk and gently mix everything
  • Knead for 5 minutes into smooth pliable dough, even if its bit sticky, do not add more flour. The dough should be soft

  • Cover and rest dough in warm place for 90 minutes
  • The dough would have doubled in size, gently punch the air
  • Knead dough for 2-3 minutes
  • Divide dough into 2 equal portions
  • Dust surface with flour and roll each dough into thick circle
  • Using cookie cutter and small bottle cap, cut into donut shape. Repeat until dough is completed
  • Place donuts on baking tray lined with parchment paper/ greased foil or greased plate, there should be gap between the donuts
  • Heat oil for frying, alternatively this can be baked too. Baked version is more healthy while the fried version is more tastier
  • Drop donuts in hot oil and deep fry over medium heat until golden brown
  • Drain excess oil over tissue paper
  • For Glaze: In a pan, heat cream over low heat, add Chocolate spread and gently mix until well combined. Switch off. Depending on the thickness of the glaze required, adjust the quantity of cream
  • Dip the donuts in prepared chocolate glaze or use icing spatula apply glaze over donuts
  • Add sprinklers on top, this is optional. Now allow the chocolate glaze to set completely
  • Serve Donuts with milk or coffee
