Chocolate Coated Cake Doughnuts ( No Yeast )

Chocolate Coated Cake Doughnuts ( No Yeast ) ... I love making cake donuts! Homemade fried cake doughnuts ( or donuts) without yeast which are much easier and quicker than yeast-based fried doughnuts. I've been using this recipe for several years, but then came across this recipe through a cooking show. Now these are my favorite, crispy crust and soft, almost cake-like texture inside.

Chocolate Coated Cake Doughnuts ( No Yeast )

Makes : 12 large or 16 medium sized doughnuts

Ingredients :
  • 288 gm.  plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp.  baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp.  salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 75 gm.  unsalted butter, melted & cooled
  • 1/2 tsp.  vanilla essence
  • Milk, as required
  • Oil, for deep frying
  • Chocolate, melted
  • Nuts or colored sprinkles, for topping
Method :
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Keep aside.
  • In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar until creamy. Beat in melted butter and vanilla.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat on low speed, just until the mixture comes together to form a soft dough. If required, add milk; little at a time to make a smooth dough.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the dough to desired thickness. Cut out doughnuts using a doughnut cutter. Let them rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a large pan or wok for deep frying. Fry doughnuts, in batches ( 3 to 4 at a time ) for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Remove doughnuts from oil with a slotted spoon and let cool on a paper towel.
  • When the doughnuts are cool enough to handle, dip the tops in melted chocolate. Sprinkle with nuts, colored sprinkles or your favorite topping.
