  • 1 cup Warm Milk
  • ¾ tsp Instant Dry Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 + ¼ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • ¼ cup Melted Butter
  • Oil, for frying


  • Pastry Cream / Custard Filling

Caramel Top:

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup Water


  • Add flour, sugar, yeast, milk, and melted butter in a bowl. Knead the dough using a stand mixer or your hands till it all comes together and forms a smooth, non-sticky dough.
  • Do the windowpane test to check if the dough is ready.
  • Line another bowl with oil and place the rolled dough carefully in it. Cover it with a damp cloth and let it proof in a warm place for 1-2 hours till it is doubled in size.
  • Once the dough is double in size, knock down the dough and place it on a floured surface to knead again.
  • Knead for a minute and divide it into equal portions (70-75g each)
  • Place these divided dough balls onto parchment paper and let it proof again for another 30-60 mins till doubled in size.
  • Heat the oil for frying and once it is hot enough, carefully fry the doughnuts on each side till a nice golden brown colour is achieved.
  • While the doughnuts are cooling, make the caramel for the top coating in a heavy bottom pan using the given quantities.
  • Make small holes on either side of the doughnuts and fill them with pastry cream or custard using a piping bag.
  • Carefully dip the top of the doughnuts in the caramel till it’s nicely coated and let it cool for a few mins.

Your eggless doughnuts are ready! Enjoy!
