Makes 36 doughnuts


  • 5 tsp yeast, dry
  • 1/3 cup water, warm

  • 1/3 cup shortening, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, scalded and cooled
  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup soy flour
  • 1/4 cup oat bran

1. In a large mixing bowl, proof the yeast with 1/2 teaspoon sugar for 10 minutes.

3. Beat vigorously until very well blended.
4. Stir in the remaining flour and beat until smooth.
5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm, draft-free place until the dough doubles.

8. Allow to rise, uncovered, until doubled again.
9. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
