Cooking : depends on the technique used

Servings : 20 small donuts


Butter mixture

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) vegan milk (I used unsweetened soy milk)

  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) oil (I used canola oil)

Dry mix

  1. Melt the first 3 ingredients in the microwave, being careful not to overheat.

  2. Add the dry ingredients to the melted butter mixture.

  3. Different techniques exist to cook donuts. (1) Using a donut oven, cook the mixture for about 2 minutes. (2) Place the dough on a work surface and cut with a donut cutter. Cook in oil or in the oven.

  4. Once cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar or garnish with another glaze.
