These donuts could be classified into two types one is cake donuts and another one is yeast donuts(donuts recipe without yeast)

Cake doughnuts are created using the sweetened sugar that uses baking powder to grow. Yeast or raised doughnuts are created using a mixture of yeast.
So today I will show you how to make donuts recipe without yeast and believe me friends my home-made donuts recipe without yeast is so easy that anyone can make it at home without using any special ingredients or tools.

 To making the donuts recipe without yeast or egg everything you need can be found at home.

The batter for this donuts is made by blending the wet ingredients into the dry in one bowl. From that point, I smooth the mixture with my hands and cut my donuts. 

Donuts recipe without yeast:

My donuts are slightly different from marketed donuts as I am not using yeast here. But yes make sure you are not forgetting the baking soda at the time of donuts dough preparation.

While using baking soda it is also remanded to integrate the baking powder with any acidic substitute like yogurt, lemon juice to form the gases that improve the donuts batter. 

In my donuts preparation, I used the above method. My motive behind all my cooking is to show you how to make a recipe simple as much as possible.

 As the donuts are yeast-free so the texture is different from yeast donuts.
This donuts( recipe) without yeast is soft from inside and crispy crunch on the outside.

Shallow fry donuts:

Do You Really Need to Deep Fry the  Doughnuts? 

Most of the home-made donuts are deep-fried, But here I am showing you how to make donuts easily through shallow-fry.

 This implies warming up a container with pretty much an inch of oil.  Everything you do is fry your flawless little donuts for around 3 minutes for each side, just until golden brown colored and fluffy. Instead of frying the donuts if you are interested to bake it, you can do that also.

How to make glazed donuts:

I used two things only to glaze my donuts: Dairy milk chocolate and icing sugar. But yes you can use chocolate syrup instead of dairy milk.

 All these ingredients make my donuts shiny and glaze. You can add your favorite flavor to glaze the donuts.

I personally like chocolate donuts so I used chocolate to coat my donuts.

4. Continuously kneading the dough for 3 minutes. The dough must be softer than chapati dough. If the dough is not soft then your donuts will also not be soft. So keep this in mind and prepare a nice soft dough.

5. In the next step keep this aside for 30 minutes to make the dough rise a little bit.

6. In that meantime prepare the chocolate sauce. For preparing the chocolate syrup use saucepan and melting the chocolate in that saucepan.

When you melt the chocolate using the double boiler process. Here I am using simple dairy milk chocolate. If you want you can use chocolate syrup or any dark chocolate or even white chocolate also. It is totally your choice of how you want to glaze your donuts.

8. Sprinkle some flour and roll out the dough to a round shape. (Though I am not an expert in it!).Make sure it is a minimum 1/2 inch in width.
