I would love to find a great doughnut recipe that I can adapt to meet my dairy free needs. I need a good recipe to start with. Any recommendations? My hubby brought home a dozen Dunkin doughnuts last night because as he was passing buy the drive through line was empty. Pity I can't have any they sure smell good and are calling my name. The kids tummies would be grateful if I could make some too. I hope someone knows of a recipe like Dunkin Doughnuts or Bakery doughnuts, not the cake kind- the soft melt in your mouth ones. Thanks!

there's one I've used before (but can't remember if there is dairy in it) that I got from matha stewart website. They are so yummy!

yeah that is OK if the recipe has milk... I just make the appropriate substitutes with my vegan ingredients. icon_wink.gif I think I am looking for the yeast kind.

it has yeast... it's called Hannukah sufganyot or jelly doughnuts.
they remind me of the consistency of krispy cremes (though I haven't had them since I was a kid) - soft and fluffy.

But, I think there are about 10 different doughnut recipes on the website...

well that narrows it down icon_wink.gif
What about the ones with mashed potatoes? Those any good?
Instant or real?

Here is a recipe that has been in my family for a long time and one of our favorite dough nuts.
2 pkgs yeast
3 cups luke warm water (105 degrees)
2/3 cup white crisco
1 cup mashed potatoes
4 cups flour
1 1/4 sugar
1 tsp salt
I use a kitchen ade mixer and put all the dry ingredience in mixer bowl inclucing yeast and mix. I add water and potatoes together and mix with dry ingredience. I let the dough raise and then roll out like cinnamon rolls and cut with doughnut cuter. Let raise again and fry until golden brown.

Glaze for doughnuts
3 3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons corn starch
1 tsp margarine
i tsp vanilla
hot water to make it the consistancy that you want
Mix well and dunk doughnuts in glaze and put on grate to set.

This recipe freezes easy after they are finished.
