Eggless Krispy Kreme Donuts

I was watching TLC last week in which there was a program on Krispy Kreme Donuts. I was fascinated by the process of making the donuts. Yesterday when I was browsing the net for some recipes I saw the recipe for Krispy Kreme donuts. The glaze for the donuts was just like I saw in the program and I was interested. I noted down the recipe and tried it out today. The result was amazing. I just loved the soft donuts with the nice sweet glaze. Has anyone tasted paal bun available in tea shops in Tamil Nadu? This donut tastes just like it with the extra flavour of butter. This is the first time I am preparing the deep fried version of donuts and I am so happy with the result. Last time when I visited Chennai, I bought some chocolate coated mini donuts for my daughter from City Centre. So when I told that I was going to try donuts, she was so happy but when she saw that these donuts are with out the chocolate glaze, she was very much disappointed and she didn't want to taste them. But PK liked it very much. So next time I am planning to do some mini donuts with chocolate glaze just to satisfy Sruti. This also makes a great party snack. So for the fifth day of the month long Blogging Marathon I am posting it under Party Special..

  24. Donuts have turned out perfect. I love Krispy Kreme donuts freshly made -- they just melt in the mouth. I'm guilty of eating more than I should in one sitting :-)

  25. I need one gayathri,couple weeks before I came across a donut recipe, it says we need to maintain temperature, how does it work do we need to check the temprature?

  26. Manju, It is just like frying vadas. You keep the flame medium and fry the donuts. Take care to get even browning with out burning the donuts.

  27. Kiddo and me love doughnuts and hubby used to watch us hog different flavored doughnuts at the Changi airport! Would love to make this at home. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Gayathri...

  28. Lovely doughnuts Gayathri. I usually buy them since kids get to choose a lot of variety.

  29. Followed your recipe to the T and it came out wonderful!
    Was able to make 16 doughnuts and used a chocolate glaze with multi-colored sprinklers- abs loved it! :)

  30. Hi there! It's the first time I comment on your blog. That donuts you make looked same with the original one! It's alwaysgood to know how to make a recipe from a chained store or franchised store by yourself, right? Krispy Kreme is good, but in my place there is another franchise donut store, it's local, and I love them more. More light and fluffy donut. Hope I can get my hands on the recipe just like you on the Krispy Kreme donuts.

    Love from Indonesia,
