Easy Doughnut with Tofu and Pancake Mix

Easy Doughnut with Tofu and Pancake Mix

No need for a bowl, cookie cutter, or scale. This is an easy recipe; it simply requires putting the ingredients in a plastic bag, kneading, and deep-frying.


1/2 - 1 block (175-350 g)
Pancake mix
1 bag (200 g)
Sugar for dusting
as needed
Frying oil
as needed


1. Put the tofu and pancake mix in a plastic bag, and knead.
2. Scoop the dough with a spoon, and drop in a pot with oil. Deep-fry at 170℃ (340℉) until golden brown.
3. Dust with sugar and it's done.
4. Variation: Make shapes by using a cake decorating tip on parchment sheet. Flip the sheet into the oil and deep fry with it. They come out looking like the picture.
5. Even after it cools, you can toast them in a toaster oven, and they will still taste like freshly deep-fried.
