Egg-Free Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

A new post again and something we all love to eat from kids to's Donuts/Doughnuts and one more thing is these are Eggless/Egg-Free!

I used to stay away from Donuts or Doughnut (whatever you call them the taste is same),as I didn't want to add another thing in my list of sweet addictions.
From my blog you can make out I make lot of sweets or desserts, so making donuts would make me have even more calories.
Somehow I decide I won't eat more sweet but end up making more than what I decide! 😀

So finally I thought rather than always getting these donuts from outside why not start at home, that way I won't have to depend on anyone. I wanted to make them eggless/eggfree too.
As we observe some vegetarian days so on those days when I want a quick bite of something or even for kids they can eat something yummy.
First try is conventional one, deep-fried one and not baked. May be after I have build up enough guilt of having these yummy one's I will start baked one 😉

I made these simple yet most delicious,soft,light,airy Cinnamon Sugar Donuts and yes Egg-free one's! I have fried the donuts holes too!

Do try!

  • Frying them on low-medium flame would get them cooked well.
  • Fry till brown and crisp.
  • I did not store them so not sure about how long they can be edible as we finished them in a day's time.
