Prep Time:20 minutes or so
Cooking Time:12 or so a pan
Yield:20 mini's, or 10 regular doughnuts
My baked vegan doughuts are a delicious healthier alternative to a fried doughut. Being a vegan recipe, it will also work perfectly for those who are lactose intolerant or have egg allergies.
- egg replacer for 1 egg, or 2Tbsp applesauce
- 1/4 cup vegan butter
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 1/2tsp baking powder
- 1/4tsp salt
- 1/4tsp freshly grated nutmeg
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup non dairy milk
- 1/2tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2tsp vanilla
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees
*In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a whisk to mix thoroughly. Combine the wet ingredients in a small saucepan over medium low heat and mix until butter is just melted. This mixture should be slightly warm to the touch.
*Add the wet mixture to the dry mix until just combined. It should form a very soft dough.
*Using a tablespoon scoop dough into an ungreased (I greased) nonstick doughnut pan. Smooth out the top of each doughnut-this will make for more even, prettier doughnuts, but isn't crucial.
*Bake for 12 minutes or so. They should not be browned on top, but a toothpick will come out clean.
*Release doughnuts to cool on a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before decorating.
*Top with glaze, melted chocolate, sprinkles, or shake in a bag of powdered sugar, or a bag of a cinnamon sugar mixture.
