Sugar and cinnamon for donuts


The story of a donut without yeast.

Donuts without yeast is the story of a home baker who craved something sweet and comforting for her family.

She wanted to make something from scratch for her young family, and she knew that their taste buds would only be satisfied with the perfect homemade donut.

Unfortunately she could not find any yeast in her pantry. This did not deter our baker as she was a creator by nature.


So, she devised this donut recipe without any yeast.

First she gathered all her ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour,
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder,
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt,
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar,
  • 1/2 cup of milk,
  • 2 large eggs,
  • 1/4 cup of melted unsalted butter,
  • vanilla extract and
  • oil for frying.

Then the process of preparing the ingredients

As she began to mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar started to blend together, creating a powdery concoction.

In a separate bowl, she whisked together the milk, eggs, and melted butter until the mixture became creamy and smooth.

She then poured the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until the dough formed. As she continued to mix, the dough began to take on a life of its own, becoming pliable and easy to shape.

With the dough ready, she sprinkled flour on a flat surface and started to knead it until it became smooth and elastic.

She then rolled it out to about half an inch in thickness, ready to cut out the perfect donut shape.

Using a donut cutter, she carefully carved out each donut, creating little rings of dough that were ready to be fried.

How she fried the donuts

She heated oil in a large pot and waited until it reached 350°F, ready for the donuts to fry.

She carefully dropped each donut into the oil, watching as they sizzled and turned golden brown.

Once they were cooked to perfection, she removed them from the oil and let them drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Now, it was time for the glaze.

In a bowl, she mixed powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until it became a sweet, velvety liquid.

She dipped each donut into the glaze, watching as it coated the surface, transforming each donut into a sugary masterpiece.

And with that, her perfect homemade donuts without yeast were ready to be savored and enjoyed.

The End

In the end, the story of our home baker and her yeast-free donuts transcends the act of baking.

It becomes a tale that celebrates the human spirit – its resilience, creativity, and the inherent desire to connect and share with others.

The donuts, delightful and unique in their yeast-free composition, are not just a culinary achievement but a representation of life’s simple pleasures and the joy found in embracing every ingredient life offers.
