Delicious Doughnuts

 One of my favourite things to do is try new vegan foods, so I thought why not try making my own? I decided that doughnuts would be the best bet because who doesn't enjoy a sweet treat? Well, I definitely do anyway. These cute mini doughnuts are great for parties, picnics, movie days with friends and just for a treat every now and then. To some extent, I know vegan foods can often scare non-vegans, if this is the case, why not head over to Alice's blog as she has a great recipe for non-vegan doughnuts.

You will need:

  • 50g Vegan Butter
  • 120ml Soya Milk
  • 2 tbsp Sunflower Oil - For the doughnuts
  • 500ml Sunflower Oil - To fry the doughnuts in
  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Method:


Step 1 - Melt the butter on a low-medium heat. Add the milk and two tablespoons of sunflower oil and then mix together. Once you've done that, take off of the heat and set aside.

Step 2 - Next, you will need to combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. You can then mix in the butter mixture and stir the ingredients together until it forms into a thick dough.

Step 3 - Now it is time for the messy part, forming the doughnuts! You will need to roll the dough into balls and create a hole in the middle using your thumb. You can use extra flour if the dough is a bit too sticky for your liking.

Step 4 - Heat up the 500ml of oil in a frying pan, you may need more or less depending on the size of your pan. You want the oil to be around 350° F, this can be tested by using a thermometer. If you haven't got one at hand, place a doughnut into the pan and if it sizzles, you can start frying.

Step 5 - Using a spatula, gently place the doughnuts into the frying pan. I'd suggest frying around 3-4 at a time so you have full control over all of them. Fry the doughnuts for around 2-3 minutes on each side, depending on the size you have made them or until they are golden brown.

Step 6 - Finally, transfer the doughnuts onto some kitchen roll to soak up the excess oil. Once you've done that, roll the doughnuts in the bowl of caster sugar and then your they are complete! Feel free to use any toppings of your choice, I just chose to keep it simple.
