2 hours prep time
15 servings

Coconut Cream Glaze:

Sprinkle yeast over warm water and let stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy.

In a large bowl of an electric mixer, mix the yeast mixture, sugar, salt, milk, shortening (1/3 cup), eggs, and 2 cups of flour. Mix for a few minutes on low speed. Add remaining flour a heaping 1/2 cup at a time until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. Knead for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic.

Place the dough into a coconut oil greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Set in a warm place to rise until doubled.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and gently roll out to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a floured cutter. Cover with a light cloth and let doughnuts rise until doubled.

Heat 3 cups palm shortening and 1 cup coconut oil in a deep fryer or large pot/skillet to 350 degrees F. Using a wide metal spatula, place doughnuts into oil and fry on each side until golden brown. Drain on wire racks and dip into glaze while warm.

Coconut Cream Glaze:

Place all ingredients except heavy cream into a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk until butter is melted, adding heavy cream until desired consistency is reached. Mixture will look oily and curdled at first but keep adding heavy cream and it will come together.

I love the glaze idea!! We're grain-free here, but I do make "donut holes" using coconut flour. I'll have to try the glaze next time (with a modification for the powdered sugar). Thank you!

How would you modify the powdered sugar for the glaze? I plan making these for a brunch, but do not use sugar. Is there is way to use honey, pure maple syrup or coconut palm sugar instead?

How about creating a gluten free doughnut recipe!

I am gluten-free, dairy-free and do not use the regular cane sugar. I do use coconut sugar, honey, xylitol, and in the past have used Natural Sugar by Florida Crystals. Any suggestions
for substitutions? Thank you
