Servings

3 dozens

Ingredients

    Dough Nuts

    • 3 tablespoons Instant Yeast Heaping
    • 1/2 cup Warm Water
    • 2 cups Milk Scalded then cooled
    • 1 cup Sucanat
    • 2 tablespoons Salt Scant
    • 4 eggs
    • 2/3 cup Butter
    • 12 cups Einkorn All Purpose Flour Approximate
    • Coconut Oil For Frying

    Maple Cream Frosting

    • 2 1/4 cups Sucanat
    • 1 ounce Cream Cheese
    • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
    • 2 tablespoons Butter Melted
    • 3+ tablespoons Milk
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Maple Flavor

    Directions

    Note: This is a very large batch. When we make dough nuts, we want a lot. If you don’t think you have enough people around to eat 3 dozen dough nuts, consider cutting this in half. Also, this dough works for any kind of dough nut. We just chose maple bars and so shaped them like traditional maple bars but you can shape them however you would prefer. If shaped like regular doughnuts, it may make more like 5 dozen.

    Dough Nuts

    1. In a mixing bowl, combine water and yeast and leave to dissolve.

    2. In a saucepan, scald milk.

    3. Turn off burner. Add butter, eggs, sucanat, and salt to milk and stir well.

    4. When lukewarm, add milk mixture to mixing bowl with yeast and water.

    5. Add 4 cups of flour and mix until smooth.

    6. Gradually add remaining flour until it cleans the sides of the bowl and is soft and smooth.

    7. Knead on low for thirty seconds and on medium for 2 minutes.

    8. Cover in bowl and let rise until doubled in size (60-90 minutes). Dough is ready when indentation remains when touched.

    9. Roll out onto flour surfaced with floured rolling pin (1/2 inch thick).

    10. Cut into desired shape.

    12. Cover and let rise until double (40-60 minutes).

    13. Remove and place on paper towel or on cooling rack above paper towel to absorb excess oil.

      I wonder if these can be baked instead of fried? This recipe looks similar to one I found online for baking raised dough nuts… I’ll have to try it. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

      Have you tried any other sweetener? I couldn’t find Sucanat, so I wondered if the substitute would be straight across. I’m glad to find an Einkorn recipe because my Mom’s recipe probably won’t raise with Einkorn as I’ve noticed my other recipes with yeast don’t rise very well as we use Einkorn exclusively.

        Hi Rebecca, if you’re not as concerned about the healthiness of your sweetener, you can use regular brown sugar. You could also use coconut sugar as a healthy alternative.

          I have coconut sugar. I meant to list a couple of options. We try to at least use organic cane sugar if we do use sugar. Thank you! I just didn’t know if the substitution would work straight across.

            That makes sense. Yes, we mostly use coconut sugar now and just substitute it straight across. Thank you for the question!

      Can one use coconut milk, almond milk, pecan milk, or walnut milk rather than regular dairy in this recipe? That’s the only one ingredient I would not use (will also be using coconut sugar). Thanks in advance. 🙂

        Hi Dana, that should be fine. It may change the taste slightly, but if you frequently use non dairy milks, you’ll be used to that!

      Thanks for the recipe. I’m wanting to try out a Krispy Kreme copycat recipe with Einkorn and am wondering if I’ll need more or less Einkorn flour than what’s called for in the recipe with all purpose flour. If you have any insight, I’d appreciate it!
