How to make vegan donuts
So the batter for these donuts couldn’t be more simple. And whether or not your vegan, this recipe doesn’t need any eggs or dairy, and the batter comes out to be light and fluffy.
You can make these vegan donuts in just one bowl. Just mix the dry ingredients together in one bowl, and then pour the wet ingredients in. Mix em together just until incorporated and your batter is ready to go!
These vegan cake batter donuts are baked rather than fried, which keeps them a bit healthier and makes for an easier clean up!
A few notes on the recipe:
These vegan cake batter donuts couldn’t be easier to make! You can have some options as far as the flour goes, and can uses regular flour, a 1-1 gluten-free flour blend, spelt flour, or whole whole flour.
You’ll want to mix the wet ingredients into the dry just until incorporated. Don’t over-mix your batter or you’re donuts won’t come out as fluffy!
To pour the batter into the donut pan, use a large ziplock bag and just cut a hole in the corner. Then pipe the mixture into your pan to fill it up.
Icing is optional on these donuts, (though highly recommended!) the icing should be relatively thick when you mix it so it sticks to the donuts and doesn’t drip right off. If your icing texture is to thin simply add some more icing sugar to mix in until you have the right consistency.
