Baked Vegan Donuts

When you desire that sweet comforting donut, but don’t want to grab the ones from the store because they were probably cooked in lard (or not vegan), now these donuts are not only a healthier alternative but will sure to satisfy that craving! These are super delicious, you wouldn’t even think they’re not deep fried.  My kids absolutely love them and always so excited to make them!

Dry Ingredients:

2 Cup unbleached white flour

1 Cup Wholemeal flour

4 tsp Baking Powder

½ tsp fine Celtic Salt

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tbsp Raw sugar

 

Wet Ingredients:

1 Cup Soy Milk

2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar or Lemon Juice

2 tsp Vanilla

1.5 Cups Coconut cream

 

Glaze Ingredients:

2 Cups powdered sugar

4 tbsp water

1 drop of your favourite food extract (vanilla, strawberry, etc)

Or you can melt some Carob Chocolate and dip the the donuts into them

 

Method:

  1. If you have a donut maker, get it ready. But if you do not, preheat oven to 177 degrees C.

  2. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients

  3. In a small bowl add all wet ingredients, mix well, then add to large bowl and mix well with a hand whisk but do not overmix. It will resemble a thick cake batter.

  4. If you are using a mini donut maker, plug on the power and wait for the light to turn green (meaning it’s ready). You may like to spray the donut cavities with a little oil spray to prevent them from sticking and give them that extra donut feel on the outside.  Scope 1 tablespoon of batter into each donut cavity, no need to smooth the tops, close the lid and wait for the light to turn green again. Once green, open the lid and check to see if the donuts are slightly golden brown, then transfer to cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting or decorating.  Repeat for the rest of the batter.  For the most part, my kids actually love eating them straight from the donut maker, hot without frosting because they're actually so delcious just as is!  But they enjoyed frosting the remaining ones ready to devaour later.

  5. If you are using the oven, in a mini non-stick donut pan (ungreased), add a tablespoon to each donut cavity, smooth the tops. Make sure the donut batter sits just below the rim of the donut cavities, as they will rise when baking.

  6. Bake for 10-12mins or until slightly golden and brown.  Take out and let cool completely before decorating.  Repeat with the rest of the batter.

  7. To make the Glaze: mix all ingredients into a bowl until very smooth. If you want to make two different flavours, divide the glaze mixture into two separate bowls.

  8. In each of the glaze bowl, add 1 drop of your desired food flavour extract. Mix well.

  9. When donuts have completely cooled, dip one side into the glaze, left out and let some drip off, then transfer to the cooling rack or plat to let the glaze completely harden. If you have a ceiling fan or any other fan, it can be used to dry up the glaze faster.
