Vegan Donut Love!

For Donuts 

2 cup of flour of choice

½ cup of warm water (110 F)

1-tablespoon ground flax meal

3 tablespoons refined coconut oil

4-tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon of yeast

½ tablespoon of cinnamon

1/8-teaspoon organic vanilla

3 tablespoon of lemon zest (optional)

4 cup Vegetable oil for frying

For the Glaze 

1 ½ cup of icing sugar

Taro powder (to achieve the purple look)

Cocoa powder (chocolate glaze)

Vegan white chocolate (white glaze)

¼ cup of plant based milk. (I used organic Soymilk)

  1. Activate yeast by mixing them with warm water.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine the foamy yeast mixture, sugar, flaxmeal, coconut oil, vanilla, and lemon zest (optional)
  3. Add flour a quarter cup at the time.  Add enough flour to form dough. Do not use all the flour if you don’t need it.  Knead dough until smooth. Then place in a bowl, and cover with kitchen towel. Place the dough in a warm area until an hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Scoop dough out on a floured surface then rolls dough to 3/8 inch thick. Cut the dough using a donut cutter or improvise by using a Mason jar top. (I improvised)
  5. Place the cut out dough on a floured baking sheet and cover with a parchment paper or foil until for 30 minutes or until it double in size.
  6. Heat the oil to a point where a tiny bit of the dough placed in the center of the pan   causes it to bubble and fry nicely.
  7. Carefully fried the donuts on each side for 90 seconds.
  8. Placed the donuts on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
  9. To glaze the donuts, mix the sugar with milk and dip the donuts halfway and placed on a cooling rack to allow the glaze to harden.
  10. Voila! Enjoy
