Hi Bold Bakers!
On Bigger Bolder Baking, I like to take what I have learned as a professional pastry chef over the years to create recipes for you that yield amazing results using creative methods. My recipe for No-Knead Donuts is exactly that, a simple method with great results.
No-Knead Donuts are simply donuts that don’t reqiure a mixer, you just mix it by hand in minutes. ! Can you believe it? They don’t look like those cakey baked Donuts, right? That’s because it is a real yeast dough I use and I think you will agree these guys are way less fuss and better for you than the traditional fried Donuts.
I am a huge bread nerd. I love working with yeast because you can see your creations come to life in front of your eyes. All the science and care that goes into working with yeast is what makes a happy dough. Yeast doughs are very simple, they want what any living thing wants: love, water, warmth……. and a little bitta sugah!
I have made many No-Knead recipes before, like my Cinnamon Rolls, Brioche, and my delicious Soft Pretzels so I hope you enjoy all of these recipes using my favorite dough making technique.
Traditional Sprinkle Donuts
I LOVE the look of this donut, it reminds me of one you would see in a traditional donut shop.
So I am definitely a Krispy Kreme gal over other donut shops and this glaze reminds me of their glaze. Dip these little guys straight from the oven and the glaze will form a crisp shell on the hot donut. Double dip if you like a lot of glaze.
Chocolate Glazed Donuts
If you want your donuts to really stand out dip them in different flavored glazes, making them all unique in look and flavor. No one will say no to a homemade Chocolate Donut.
