Glazed Doughnuts by http://www.vegcooking.com

Category: Breakfast



This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.





Ingredients:

-----------------------------------------------------

1 pkg. active dry yeast

1 cup lukewarm water, separated

1/4 cup vegetable shortening

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup soy milk, warmed

Egg replacer, equivalent to 2 eggs

4 cups flour, plus more for flouring

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/4 tsp. mace

Oil for deep frying

2 cups confectioners sugar

1/2 cup hot water





Instructions:

-----------------------------------------------------

Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water and allow it to stand for 5 minutes. In a saucepan, bring the remaining 1/2 cup of warm water to a boil. Add the vegetable shortening and sugar and stir until they are dissolved. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl and allow it to cool. Add the yeast mixture and the soy milk. Mix in the egg replacer, 2 cups of the flour, the salt, and the mace. Add the remaining flour, a little at a time, to make a soft dough. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth, place it in a greased bowl, cover it, and allow it to rise for about an hour or until it has doubled in size. Punch the dough down. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough until it is about 1/2-inch thick. Use a doughnut cutter to cut the dough then place the pieces on waxed paper and allow them to rise for an hour. In a skillet or deep fryer, heat the oil to 370° F. Fry a few doughnuts at a time, leaving them in the oil until they are golden brown. Place them on paper towels to drain off the excess oil. Mix the confectioners sugar and hot water in a shallow bowl. While the doughnuts are still hot, dip them in the glaze then place them onto waxed paper. Allow the glaze to dry then serve the doughnuts immediately.

I made donuts tonight using this recipe and they turned out so good! Eric ate about 6. I pumped them full of vegan creme too. I think next time I might experiment some and make eclairs I didn't have a donut cutter, so I used an overturned glass to cut the dough and I ended up with about 2 dozen!

I used Ener-G. The trick is to make sure the oil is not too hot, or they'll brown too quickly. I didn't even let mine get brown, just slightly golden- that way they stay soft.



My husband keeps asking for more, but I haven't worked off the last 2 batches yet I've got a bit of a donut going on around the middle right now

"1 1/4 tsp. mace"



....what's mace?

I need to learn how to make doughnuts like I need an extra chin, but these do look good

Isn't the point of making doughnuts to get an extra chin?

I'm pretty sure mace is a spice, but I don't have any and didn't want any in my donuts!

From what I've watched on Food Network (and I haven't done this, so don't hold me to it) you can fill them full of cream with a pastry bag if you just push a hole in the side
