Making donuts without yeast is a fun and delicious way to enjoy this classic treat without having to wait for the dough to rise. This method is also great for those with yeast intolerance or those who simply don’t have any yeast on hand.
Here are the steps for making delicious donuts without yeast:
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix the ingredients together until they are well combined.
- In a separate small bowl, whisk together 1 egg, 1/2 cup of milk, and 1/4 cup of melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the dough comes together.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it gently until it is smooth and elastic.
- Roll the dough out to about 1/4-inch thickness and use a donut cutter or a large round cookie cutter and a smaller cutter for the hole to cut out the donuts.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the donuts into the oil and fry them for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove the donuts from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
- While the donuts are still warm, you can coat them in your favorite toppings, such as powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, or glaze.
- Enjoy your delicious, homemade donuts without the wait!
