Baked Eggless Doughnut Recipe

Baked eggless doughnut recipe is just what I needed for our doughnut cravings. These fluffy, soft and glazed donuts are to die for. You will not even notice that it’s not fried and baked instead.

I can’t call my recipe completely guilt free because I have used a mix of whole wheat flour (aata) and all purpose flour (maida) but the good news is you can follow the same recipe with whole wheat flour only and get similar results. This is a no fail recipe for baked doughnuts.

These doughnuts are simply out of this world. When you make these at home, you will use more natural ingredients and can keep a check on harmful chemicals like colors. You can always naturally color the glaze and also use good quality ingredients to make these delicious doughnuts.

Donuts or doughnuts are traditionally fried but you can bake them or you can also make no yeast doughnuts. Glazing a doughnut is an important step and I have shown two types of glaze here in this recipe. The simple Vanilla Glaze and Chocolate Glaze. You can make a lot of other versions like fruit glaze or cinnamon sugar coating.

I have also used a good mix of sprinkles to bring in the much needed pop to make them attractive for my 4 year old. These undoubtedly have to be the best thing I have baked so far.

For Doughnuts

  1. Take 1 cup warm milk in a bowl. Milk should be warm and not hot.
  2. Now add oil, sugar and yeast.
  3. Mix well and add flour.
  4. Mix again and use 1/4 cup more milk to get the mixture to hold together.
  5. Cover the mixture with a tight lid or kitchen towel and keep aside in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes.
  6. After 30 to 40 minutes, the dough would have almost doubled in size and will have developed air pockets.

  2. Now mix chocolate sauce to the rest of the glaze and mix well.

  1. Your baked doughnuts sounds so tasty and yummy, I used to bake when my kids were young, just used to sprinkle a little sugar, but never glazed it. I might bake one batch again and glaze them.

  2. This is surely gonna be in my trail next week. These donuts looking absolutely delicious and as you saying no fail then I am going to make them with whole wheat. Love this donut recipe.

  3. Your doughnuts look amazing and lip smacking. I never made doughnut at home. I always thought it’s a kind of a big deal. After seeing your recipe. Why not.. I will add it to my list and give a try soon. The glazing part is awesome, that’s the important key to this attractive doughnuts.
