You would certainly love this ‘healthier’ version of everyone’s favorite childhood treat! A very simple recipe to prepare a delicious vegetarian version of classic chocolate glazed donuts!
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C, lightly grease a donut pan and set aside. In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, and stir the mix well. In another bowl, pour the almond milk, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, lemon juice and give the mixture a nice stir until well blended.
Pour the almond milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir the ingredients until just combined. Do not over stir the mixture. You may either pour this batter in to a piping bag or use a teaspoon to pour the batter nicely in to the prepared donut pan. Now, transfer the baking pan in to the preheated oven and bake the donuts for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the donuts are fully cooked.
Remove the pan from the oven and let the donuts cool for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl add the powdered white sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla extract, and mix it all until smooth in consistency and well combined. Drizzle the chocolate glaze randomly over the donuts or dunk the top half of the donuts in to the chocolate glaze.
Cool and let the frosting set for 10 minutes, serve and enjoy!
You may replace cinnamon powder with nutmeg powder as well. Instead of using almond milk you may use any other non dairy milk of your preference in the recipe. If you do not prefer even a slight saltiness in your donuts, replace the salted butter with the unsalted variation. Make sure you move your hands in only one direction while you whisk the donut mixture. Maintain the baking temperature and you might need to keep a watch in the final minutes of baking.
