Classic Chocolate Glazed Donuts
There is a great little corner market near my home the has the freshest fruit. The one downside to really fresh fruit is that it needs to be eaten asap. Since we have a very small household it can be a challenge to eat all the fruit while still fresh. My usual "go to" has been freezing the extra to use for smoothies, but I came across a super easy fruit leather recipe that I adapted and found an extremely fun and tasty way to use berries. A throw back to fruit rollups from when I was a child, with the exception of all those preservatives.
Dry Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup sugar 3 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt just a smidgen under 1/2 tsp. (scant) nutmeg 1 dash cinnamon
Wet Ingredients: 1 cup soy milk 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar 1 tsp. vanilla extract Flax seed eggs (2 tbsp. flax seed meal + 5 tbsp. warm water allowed to thicken for a few minutes) 3/4 cup vegan margarine
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp. soy milk
sprinkles of choice
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a whisk to mix thoroughly. Melt butter and combine the wet ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until just combined. It should form a very soft dough. Using a tablespoon, scoop dough into an ungreased nonstick doughnut pan. Smooth out the top of each dough with your fingers. Bake for 10- 12 minutes. A toothpick will come out clean. Invert the hot pan over a cutting board or cooling rack to release the doughnuts. Allow to cool completely before decorating. Top with a glaze, melted chocolate, and/or sprinkles if desired.
