We made colorful doughnuts for Mardi Gras this year! Just follow the recipe below, divide your batter into 3 different bowls, and mix in yellow, green, and purple food coloring. You can then swirl the batter together in your doughnut pan however you like. For a colorful topping, mix your favorite vegan icing with yellow, green, and purple food coloring, and voila!

Baked Vegan Doughnuts
Dry Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. (scant) nutmeg
1 dash cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Egg replacer for 1 egg (or 2 Tbsp. cinnamon apple sauce)
¼ cup vegan margarine

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a whisk to mix thoroughly. Combine the wet ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat and mix until the margarine is just melted. This mixture should be just slightly warm to the touch.
  • 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―this will make for more even, prettier doughnuts but isn't crucial.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. They should not be browned on top, but 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.

Make 20 mini-doughnuts or 10 regular-sized doughnuts
