Vegan Baked Donuts Recipe

For the Donuts:
1 cup all-purpose flour (or a gluten-free flour blend)
1/2 cup granulated sugar or coconut sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
For the Glaze (optional):
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons plant-based milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Food coloring (if desired)
Toppings (optional):
Vegan sprinkles, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, etc.
Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a donut pan with a little oil or cooking spray.
Mix Dry Ingredients:
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Combine Wet Ingredients:
In another bowl, whisk the unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil or vegetable oil.
Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined. Do not overmix.
Fill the Donut Pan:
Transfer the batter into a piping bag or a resealable plastic bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe the batter evenly into the donut pan, filling each cavity about 2/3 full.
Bake the Donuts:
Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the donuts are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool and Glaze (optional):
Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
If glazing the donuts, whisk together the powdered sugar, plant-based milk, vanilla extract, and food coloring (if using) until smooth. Dip the tops of the cooled donuts into the glaze.
Add Toppings (optional):
While the glaze is still wet, sprinkle your choice of vegan sprinkles, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut on top.
