Vegan Powdered Donuts – (Baked) • It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken

Who loves old fashioned sugar powdered donuts? Me me me!!! So guess who decided to make her own homemade vegan powdered donuts recipe? Me me me!!!

These melt-in-your-mouth white powdered donuts taste just like the traditional recipe but better because they’re easy to make, baked instead of fried, can be made in the comfort of your own home, and of course, are entirely vegan. Sweet, powdery perfection, vegan donuts make for such a fun snack or dessert, and are excellent dipped in coffee.

There are two keys to making amazing donuts at home.

The first key is to bake and not fry the donuts. Baked donuts are easy to make and are so much safer, (and a little bit healthier) than working with hot oil. All you need is an inexpensive donut pan (I used this one from Amazon) to make the classic donut shape. Or if you want to make donut holes then you can use a donut hole pan instead and bake them for a few minutes less.

The second key is a secret ingredient that gives that classic donut taste and that is nutmeg! It’s that little hint of flavour that makes donuts taste like donuts, whether you realize it or not. Without nutmeg, your donuts will taste more like cake than donuts. For these vegan powdered donuts, I also added a generous amount of vanilla extract, and a dash of almond extract for the perfect vanilla-y almost birthday cake like dough. Omnomnom! Now on to making donuts!

To make Vegan Powdered Donuts:

Mix the simple donut batter.

In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
In a medium bowl mix together all the wet ingredients. Now add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not over mix, lumps are totally cool.

Pipe the dough into the donut pan.

Scoop the batter into a large ziplock bag and cut the corner off of the bag. Alternatively, use a pastry bag. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, dividing it evenly among the 6 donuts wells.

Bake the donuts and let them cool.

Bake for 10 – 14 minutes until the donuts have fluffed up and are no longer wet looking. Take out of the oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

Dip in powdered sugar.

Add the powdered sugar to a medium bowl, and one at a time dip a cooled donut into the sugar, flipping the donut and sprinkling over the sugar as needed to evenly coat the donut. Note that as the donuts rest, the moisture in the donut can absorb the powdered sugar coating, so it is best to enjoy these within a few hours of coating the donuts.

If you wish to make these donuts ahead of time, store them un-powdered in an air-tight container at room temperature for 2 – 3 days and coat in powdered sugar before serving. (Although I always think donuts are best prepared fresh).

Bon appetegan!
