How To Make Eggless Doughnuts


Do you love Doughnuts? Yes, you do! Like who doesn’t right? 😉

Doughnuts are not exactly easy to make or that’s what many of us assume, right? To be honest, I didn’t even know you could make eggless doughnuts until I came across this recipe from Royal Baking powder.

My daughter has a few allergies and because of this, I have to be super careful about the ingredients I use when cooking or baking. I know that allergies have become a bigger problem over the past years for many of us so I really think this recipe will be a lifesaver for you if you don’t or can’t eat eggs!

  • Sift flour, Royal Baking Powder, and salt together.
  • Rub in butter with fingertips until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add sugar. Add the milk, cut it with a knife and knead lightly to a soft dough.
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1cm and cut out rounds with a doughnut cutter.
  • Alternately, shape into medium-size balls and make a hole with the handle end of wooden spoon to form rings.
  • Heat oil in a heavy-based saucepan and deep-fry doughnuts in hot oil, turning constantly until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Drain on paper towel and cool.
  • Coat doughnuts in cinnamon-sugar.

Variations: Dip doughnuts into melted chocolate or drizzle icing over.
