For the dough

  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour (we prefer bread, can use all-purpose or whole wheat)
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy free milk (we like oat - can use any non-strongly flavored dairy free milk or even water if needed)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (can sub for agave or vegan cane sugar)

For the topping


  • In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, and salt. 
  • Then, add in the dairy free milk and maple syrup. 
  • Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined.  Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.  
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
    *If you are oil free, then just make sure sides of bowl are floured, or use a silicone bowl to easily get it out
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to be about a quarter of an inch thick. Then using a 1" small cutter, cut out your donut hole shapes. 
  • Fold dough back up and then roll out again to cut out more dough until no more exists.
  • Place each cut out on a baking sheet and then cover and let rise again for 30 minutes. 
  • Heat oil up to 330-350 degree F. 
  • Fry for about 30-45 seconds or until golden brown on each side.
  • Carefully remove donuts from hot oil and place on a cooling rack with a sheet pan under it to catch the oil or a towel lined plate. 
  • Repeat until all donuts are cooled. 
  • Remove donuts from fryer, let most of the grease drip off and then dip both sides in powdered sugar while still hot. 
  • Serve immediately or let cool to room temperature and store in an air tight container for up to 2 days.
