Gluten Free Vegan Lemon Vanilla Donuts

These donuts are baked, the recipe as is will not make a good fried donut. After baking there are some who lightly fry each side of the donut to achieve that traditional crust. I have not tried this myself, not yet anyway...



1¾ cup gluten free flour*

¼ cup almond flour

½ tsp xanthan gum (omit if in your blend)

½ tsp salt

¼ cup white sugar

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ cup coconut milk

1 cup water

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

*Use a light blend as opposed to a bread mix

Lemon Glaze

¾ cup powdered sugar

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice



Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare your donut tin, this recipe makes 12 regular donuts

In a mixing bowl add the dry ingredients and stir to combine

Add the wet ingredients and mix or blend until smooth. The mixture should be somewhat like a pancake batter, not too thick, add more water if necessary (too little water will give you a dense donut)

Pour the mixture into the prepared donut tin, filling to 2/3.

Bake for 10 minutes. The donuts will be cooked at this point but if you want a bit more colour raise the temperature to 425F and leave for another 2-3 minutes

Allow the donuts to cool for a minute or two then carefully remove from the tin. Running a knife along the sides of the donut will make it easier to lift out whole

Once cool dip to coat with the lemon glaze. Let the glaze set for a few minutes before serving

To make the Lemon Glaze simply add the lemon juice to the powdered sugar and stir until all of the sugar has been incorporated. The glaze should be thick but pourable. You could also dust the donuts with powdered sugar only or another flavored glaze
