Ingredients: 65g, For about 7 pieces;124Kcal each

・Fresh okara
・Rice flour
・Brown sugar
・Baking powder
2 teaspoons ( 6g )
Silken tofu
150g (without draining the water)
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon ( 13g ) - I used Taihaku sesame oil


1. Put all the・ ingredients in a plastic bag and shake well to mix.
2. Add oil and tofu while mashing and massage well until it becomes smooth.
3. Round the dough like when you make patties. Line them on parchment paper and make a hole with a finger. ※ It will be easier to do this process with wet hands.
4. ※ How to make a hole. ① Stick your index finger in the middle and stretch the hole bigger little by little. ② Make a circle with your index and middle finger and poke through the hole. Spin the dough with your fingers to widen the hole.
5. Bake in a preheated oven at 375F/190C for about 20 minutes.
6. Coat with whatever you like once the donuts are cool. The pictured donut is dusted with kinako (toasted soy bean flour).

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make a new okara based confectionary ...
I made this recipe referencing Lenna's ”Low Calorie Baked Donut using Tofu and Okara (Recipe ID: 835038). I made it with the combination of my favorite brown sugar and soy bean powder, and wrote it down and posted it here so I wouldn't forget it.
