WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS GUIDE?
No Yeast and No-Knead Donuts
Kusina Chef shows us how she does her donuts without yeast and kneading. She used evaporated milk, white vinegar, egg, vegetable oil, all-purpose flour, baking powder, white sugar, and salt to form her donut base. For her glaze frosting, she mixed powdered sugar, milk or water (more thinner), vanilla/strawberry, cocoa powder(for chocolate), red food color (for pink coloring), and sprinkles (optional). She was able to come up with three flavors. If you don’t have a donut maker, you will see how she creates her ring donuts in the video. For more details, check her video’s description box.
