I am happy to share the donut recipe, which is exactly the same as my bread recipe! In fact, just this morning, Tina, I was thinking that I wanted to forward a bread recipe to you that is safe for dairy and egg allergic individuals. My son is egg allergic (and others) and someone else is my family is egg and dairy allergic, so I adapt my bread recipe for dairy allergies as well.

First of all, I use my Black and Decker bread maker to make bread on almost a daily basis. We rarely buy any sort of bread products (other than tortillas, Dempsters thin bagels (available at Walmart), and some safe pitas), and it truly is so easy to throw the ingredients in the bread maker - it only takes 5 minutes, and then 3 hrs and 10 mins later, the bread is ready. I find Canadian Tire has various Black and Decker breadmakers on sale with frequency, so you can pick one up there. I make pizza dough, hamburger buns, etc. using the bread maker to make either a loaf of bread, or the dough to use for other things, including donuts!

Here's the bread machine recipe for a 2 lb loaf:

original recipe (followed by adapted recipe for dairy allergy)

White Bread (2 lb loaf)
1 1/3 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons skim milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons butter
3 3/4 cups white flour
1 teaspoon bread machine yeast (I buy the jar of Fleishman's)

White Bread (dairy free)
1 1/3 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons oil (I use canola oil)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 3/4 cups white flour
1 teaspoon bread machine yeast

For the bread, select the bread cycle, for the dough recipe, use the dough cycle.

Donuts (makes ~14 donuts (the size of Tim Horton's))
-make the dough as above
-separate into 14 balls, shape a hole in the middle, and form into a donut shape
-allow to rise for 50 - 60 minutes in a warm place (I will heat the oven on low for 30 secs, then allow rising to take place there)
-when donuts have risen, heat ~1/4 inch of canola oil in a large frying pan on high for ~ 2 minutes
-reduce heat to medium
-place ~ 6 donuts into the hot oil
-fry for ~2-3 minutes, then carefully flip for another ~ 2 minutes (they should be lightly brown on each side)
-remove promptly and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil
-immediately top with whatever you like: plain white sugar, or sugar and cinnamon, safe chocolate chips (I use Hershey's milk chocolate, but for those with dairy allergies, you can use Enjoy Life chocolate chips)
-Enjoy your fresh, warm donuts!

TIP for chocolate chips: I melt them in the microwave first, then sprinkle a little extra white sugar, then quickly dip the donuts in the chocoate/sugar mixture*.

*When I tried just the chocolate chips alone, for some reason, it just didn't seem quite right. I am still searching for a better chocolate dipping topping, but since I only make them once every couple of years, I haven't spent time searching.

By the way, here is a whole wheat/white bread recipe that I like as well:

Whole Wheat bread recipe for the bread machine:

1 1/3 cups warm water
3 tablespoons oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Select whole wheat bread cycle, which is ~3 hours and 30 minutes using the Black and Decker bread maker.
