OOOOOOhhhhhh, donuts. My mouth waters at the site of them. They are so pretty and colorful, some round ones with holes, some without, long ones, twisted ones and even some tiny ones. They are little works of art and I wanted one, so I created this Delectable Donuts recipe.
If you are watching your cholesterol but you want your cake, so to speak, now you can eat it, too! This recipe is CHOLESTEROL FREE!
That’s one of the great benefits of a vegan diet – its naturally cholesterol free. So, you can dig into these donuts just remember they still have sugar. We have to Intentionally Eat, right?!
You know I lost 125 lbs and have kept it off for years because of Intentionally Eating, right? If not, you can check out my story here.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (original or vanilla)
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Egg replacer for 1 egg (or 2 Tbsp apple sauce)
1/4 cup vegan butter
Preheat the oven to 350°
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Combine the wet ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium-low just until the butter has melted.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. The dough will be very soft.
Scoop the dough into a non-stick, ungreased donut pan. Smooth out the tops for a prettier donut. Be warned you will be licking your fingers when you finish, so wash your hands afterwards 🙂
Bake for 12 minutes. They are done when a toothpick comes out clean. Invert the pan and allow the donuts to cool completely on a rack before icing.
Delectable Donut Icing
1 cup powdered sugar (vegan, if you care)
2 Tbsp vegan butter, melted
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp vanilla
Blend ingredients together and frost away! I used my vitamix to blend the icing ingredients, but you can use a hand blender if you want.
Also, if you don’t have a donut pan you can use your muffin pan and make muffins instead. Hey, if you have your muffin pan out you are going to love my Easy Blueberry Muffin recipe!
BTW, I doubled the recipe making 6 donuts and 20 muffins, which I call donut holes. I LOVED donut holes as a kid. OOOOOOhhhhhh, donuts.
