Vegan Donuts

Servings: 12 Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup vegan margarine(50 g)
  • ½ cup soy milk(120 mL)
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil, plus extra for frying
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour(250 g)
  • ½ cup caster sugar(100 g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Method

  • Gently melt the butter over low-medium heat. Add milk and 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil and mix together.
  • Once combined, take off the heat and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, half of the sugar, baking powder, and salt with a fork.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the butter mixture. Combine gradually until a thick dough forms.
  • Using your hands, roll dough into little flat balls and with your thumb, press a hole in the center of each doughnut. (You may need to flour your hands for this part to avoid getting sticky!)
  • Heat up oil in a pan. To know when it's hot enough, fry a little bit of bread in the oil. If it goes brown and floats to the top, in 45-50 seconds the oil will be ready!
  • Gently lay the doughnuts into the oil using a spatula. Fry for about 3-5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Transfer the doughnuts onto some tissue paper to soak up any excess oil.
  • Roll the doughnut into a bowl of the remaining half of sugar or sugar glace (mix sugar powder with a splash of plant milk and mix)
  • Decorate and enjoy.
