Although donuts are American (or doughnuts in England), they are very popular in shops and fast food restaurants (and at fairgrounds!) Here are some recipes to make your own, or buy baked plant-based versions.
Keep these donuts (and fresh dough) away from furry friends, they contain chocolate and other pet-toxic ingredients like nuts. Never use xylitol near pets – even a dropped crumb could cause a medical emergency.
Lemon Lavender Doughnuts (Short Girl, Tall Order) use a homemade sugar, and top with a zesty lemon glaze. So pretty!
Apple Spice Baked Donuts (Rainbow Plant Life) make a nice autumn or winter treat. They are baked in the oven, and topped with a maple cardamom glaze.
Vegan Gingerbread Donuts (Rainbow Nourishments) make a nice Christmas or winter treat. They are baked and free from refined sugar, topped with a cinnamon sugar or thick maple icing.
Baked Apple Cider Donuts (Crowded Kitchen) are light and fluffy, with a crunchy topping of cinnamon sugar. Easy to make with a gluten-free option, these are nice for autumn.
Chocolate Glazed Donuts (Rainbow Plant Life) are the indulgent option. Topped with a simple 2-ingredient chocolate coconut glaze.
Traditional Jammy Doughnuts
Baked Jammy Doughnuts (So Vegan) are bound with a chia egg. You can use raspberry jam, or swap it up with different flavoured jams.
