dry ingredients to make the vegan donuts

Ingredients for the Vegan Chocolate Doughnuts?

  • Flour. I start with all-purpose flour, but feel free to use your favorite one. You can use gluten-free flour as long it is 1:1.
  • Cocoa powder. Add cocoa to give your dough a chocolate taste; I like to use dark cocoa.
  • Baking Powder. Use baking powder to ensure that your doughnuts bake to perfection for you.
  • Maple Syrup. Give your doughnuts a sweeter taste using maple syrup as a natural sweetener.
  • Plant-based milk. Use dairy-free milk, like soy milk or almond milk, in your recipe to create your donut batter.

How to make vegan donuts

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. First, gather all the dry ingredients and place them in a large mixing bowl to make the perfect mixture. Whisk the ingredients so everything gets integrated. Then, slowly pour the wet ingredients to create a smooth and well-blended mixture.
  3. Spoon the batter into a doughnut pan; if you are not using a nonstick pan, make sure you grease it first.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

How to make the Chocolate ganache?

Add coconut milk and chocolate in a small saucepan, and mix well. Add the vanilla and maple syrup, and stir over low heat until you can see the bottom of the pot. Glaze the doughnuts while the glaze is hot-warm.

How to glaze the vegan doughnuts

Wait until the donuts are completely cool. Dip the doughnuts into the ganache or pour the vegan chocolate ganache over the donuts on a cooling rack. Let the chocolate cool so it can set

Finish the donuts by sprinkling your favorite topping.
