Baked Vegan Doughnuts With Lemon Glaze

Posted Feb 01 2011 9:34pm

Happy February!  I picked up Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Diet today.  I’ve actually grabbed it twice before, both times putting it back, but something keeps drawing me to this book so maybe it’s a sign!  Whatever it is, I’m excited to open it up and get started. I’ve already been wondering if a juicer and a dehydrator, two appliances I don’t have, are going to be necessary to follow the adventure cleanse.

That being said, I do still have a few treat recipes to share from over the holidays.  I made these baked doughnuts (or donuts, whichever you prefer) for guests and helpers using a 6-cavity doughnut pan .  They’re a nice cake-like doughnut with a spicy sweetness, perfect alone or with powdered sugar, but especially delicious with a drizzle of lemon glaze.  Take the extras to the office if you prefer your family not be tempted eat the whole dozen!

Vegan Baking Recipes

Baked Vegan Doughnuts
Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Grease or spray doughnut pan. In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine soymilk and apple cider vinegar and set aside for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.  In a small bowl, whisk together the ground flax seeds and warm water.  Whisk flax mixture, soymilk mixture, and vegan butter into the dry ingredients until just combined.  Fill each doughnut cavity 2/3 full.  Bake 8-9 minutes or until doughnuts are golden brown.  Allow pan to cool about 5 minutes before removing doughnuts.  Repeat filling and baking with the second half of the batter.  Enjoy!

For a simple lemon glaze, just combine 1 cup powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and drizzle or dip!  Or if lemon isn’t your thing, use 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk for a plain glaze.  We’re big fans of a touch of lemon around here!

Are you over vegan sweets now that the holidays are long gone?

Do you have a juicer and/or dehydrator?  If so, do they get regular use?  Were they worth the investment?

Preheat oven to 425°F.  Spray the 6-cavity donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.2.  Sift together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk in buttermilk, eggs, and butter and beat until just combined.  Fill each donut cup until about 2/3 full.

3.  Bake 7-9 minutes, or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched.  Cool in pan for about 4-5 minutes before removing from pan.
