I Had a Craving…

August 17, 2008

So I made some baked vegan donuts! It was so fun (that means messy!). I used this recipe, then used the converter to make only 4 servings, left out the cinnamon, used melted margarine in place of shortening, Ener-G egg replacer for the egg, & soy milk for the milk. It made one dozen mini-muffin donut holes. After they were cool, I either rolled them in powdered sugar, dunked them in chocolate or vanilla glaze, then decked them out with some sprinkles & let them dry. I would have made some coconut ones too, but I’m all out of it.

Someday I’ll make the authentic fried type, but these are satisfying and won’t leave your house smelling like a fast food place.

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon melted margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon water, plus more if needed

Whisk everything together until smooth.

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon water, plus more if needed

Whisk everything together until smooth.

    Wow–these look and sound so good! Did you really use a mini-muffin pan?! I would love to make these, but don’t have a donut pan…

    Aw, they’re so cute and colorful! Looks great.

    Courtney—No, I used my mini-muffin pan, so they’re more like donut holes. I live in a studio, so I can’t buy every cutesy baking item, so I don’t have a donut pan either. :o)

    ninaki—Thank you!

    I love the blue sprinkles with the chocolate glaze. I have to give your chocolate galze a try. Everytime I make homemade donuts my son doesn’t think the glaze is sweet enough and he snubs them.

    Oh my goodness! These donuts are beee-utiful!

    And I love that they won’t leave your house smelling like McDonalds (ick) or someplace similar!

    Great idea!

    These are just adorable! They look great. I also wanted to let you know that I made your Banana Split Bread (had to change a couple of things for my own dietary restrictions) and it came out GREAT–I would have taken photos but my honey ate it all before I thought of it! Will try again and let you know. 🙂

    I’m thinking of making the deep fried version tomorrow!

    Maggie—I think this glaze is plenty sweet. If not, you could always add more powdered sugar…

    jd—Yeah, that’s about the ONLY reason I have kept myself from frying up some classic donuts!

    Nikki—-They’re gone, so I guess that’s a yes. :o)

    Jennifer—Thank you so much!

    Ricki—Yay! I’m glad you could convert the banana split bread to your liking. That makes me super happy!

    joythebaker—Oh no! And by that I mean OH YES! I can’t wait to drool over your pictures (if you take them, that is, hint, hint!).

    those look SO good. I have to admit i really miss donuts since going vegan. I’ve been eyeing a donut maker for ages but like you, don’t have the room for all the gadgets I want!

    So pretty! Do you think they would work in a certain bread pudding recipe?

  15. August 20, 2008 10:49 pm

    Sal—I’m glad it’s not just me that has to have restraint!

    veganspam—I bet they would! It might be soggier, since they don’t have that fried exterior. But isn’t bread pudding supposed to be soggy? :o)

    They are so adorable! I wish I was able to get blue sprinkles (I can only find multi coloured ones – and it’s a bit too much of a hassle to sort them by colour…)

    don’t be mad at me for digging up this old post, but the blue jimmies on top of the chocolate donuts are GORGEOUS.

    whoa, i’m inspired.
