      Vegan Chanukah Donuts

      2 pkgs. Yeast

      1/3 cup plus 3 Tbsp. sugar

      1 cup lukewarm water

      4-4 1/2 cups bleached spelt pastry flour

      1/2 tsp. salt

      1 cup soy milk

      2 Tbsp. potato starch

      1/4 cup melted vegan margarine

      1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

      1 24-oz. bottle vegetable oil

      In a nonreactive (glass or ceramic) bowl, mix the yeast, 1 Tbsp. of
      the sugar, and the water until dissolved. Set aside for 10 minutes.

      In a large bowl, combine the flour and the salt. Set aside.

      In a large glass bowl, mix the remaining sugar, the soy milk, potato
      starch, vegan margarine, and vanilla extract. Add the yeast mixture
      and gradually beat in the flour mixture until the mix is stiff but
      still sticky.

      Cover with a cloth and let sit in an unheated oven for 1 hour.

      Turn out onto a floured surface and knead with 15 to 30 strokes.

      Quickly roll out the dough and cut into donuts. Cover with a cloth
      and let rise for 15 to 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.

      While the dough is rising, heat the oil in a deep pan for 20 minutes.
      To test the oil's temperature, drop in a small piece of the dough. The
      temperature is perfect if the dough rises to the top almost
      immediately and browns in approximately 1 minute. It's too hot if the
      dough burns and too cool if it doesn't rise.

      Cook the donuts in the oil, flipping after 1 minute, or when browned.
      When browned on both sides, remove to a baking sheet lined with paper
      towels.

      Makes 12 servings

      Variations: Create a glaze for the donuts by thinning out your
      favorite frosting with melted vegan margarine and soy milk or by
      combining 1 cup of powdered sugar with 1 tsp. of vanilla extract or
      lemon extract and enough soy milk to thin.
