Starter dough:


Per coloured glaze

  • 6 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp oat milk

  • Roll your dough into a ball. Slice down the middle.
  • Then roll your two balls into tubes.
  • Cut the tubes into equal square pieces.
  • Roll the squares into little balls.
  • Then assemble your donut by sticking the balls together (5 per donut) on a square parchment paper.
  • In a small pot, add enough oil (about 2 inches in height) to cover the donut. Bring to medium heat.
  • Then slide your donut with the parchment paper underneath into the hot oil. Yes it's okay to do this to parchment paper. If you don't, your donut will come loose.
