1 envelope yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 cup lukewarm rice milk
3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup shortening
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg (or 1 egg replacer)


In your mixing bowl, mix 1 envelope of yeast with 1/4 cup lukewarm water. Stir until frothy. Heat 1 cup rice milk and add to yeast. Add 1 1/2 cups flour and beat until smooth. Cover and let double in size. This may take several hours. I often sit it near the oven or a *warm* place.

Cream shortening, salt, sugar and egg. Add egg mixture to the yeast mixture. Add 2 more cups flour. Knead the flour into the mixture until smooth and dough is not sticking to your hands. You may need a little more flour. Let rise until double again.

Roll out dough 1/2 inch thick and cut out doughnuts. Let the doughnuts rise 1-2 hours. Then deep fry in oil. I also fry the doughnut holes. Fry until golden brown.

Dip in sugar or dairy free icing when warm or let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.


They freeze well as an individual treat! Even my non-FA people love these!


Any milk alternative beverage may be used.

Egg may be substituted with egg replacer.

Egg Substitutions: There are many egg-free products and foods available to make your recipes free of eggs. Find out more about egg substitutions.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Define or list "" egg replacers". What slurpy, sticky,
wet or powdery substances can be used in place of
egg or part of an eff in a recipe by persons who are so allergic to eggs that they cannot ingest any form of egg without severe asthma, breathe egg fumes without asthma and medical remediation, or even touch, handle or wash dishes cintaining egg stain without gloves and a brush as the egg is water soluable into the dishwater even after it has dried in a plate. My hands will itch for several hours between the fingers if I din,t wear gloves when washing other's dishes. Reply requested.

Under "Substitutions" there is a link to a list of suggested egg replacements. This article has options for replacing eggs in cooking/baking based on what the egg does in the recipe. If you need help figuring out what egg replacement works best in different types of recipes, you can ask on a particular recipe or post on our Food & Cooking forum -
