Recipe: Baked Vegan Donuts with Maple Glaze

Y'all, I've been slacking off. I haven't been cooking, or baking, or anything really lately. I mean, I have, but nothing exciting enough to tell you about. Thank goodness Diana from Dianapantz is here to fill the gap! And with donuts!

hey everybody!
i am diana and wanted to drop by lauren's blog and share one of my favorite things ; vegan dessert ;)

see, a couple months ago, i splurged and bought myself a donut pan.
since then, i have been making donuts left & right!
i have a 'donut maniac' board on pinterest, and one of my 2012 goals is to make a donut a week [thats 52 donuts!!]

one of the great things about vegan desserts is that its not hard [or expensive!] to modify most recipes.
so, even if you arent vegan, keep reading, because i promise you these donuts and simple [and delish!]

baked vegan donuts with maple glaze
makes 6 large donuts // original recipe found here // vegan modifications made by me

you need : 
*1 1/4 cup whole wheat or all purpose flour [i use whole wheat]
*1/2 cup granulated sugar [i use turbinado sugar]
*1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
*1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons almond milk [i use regular, unflavored]
*1 1/2 tablespoons vegan butter [i use earth balance] ; melted

how to do it : 
1) preheat over to 425* ; spray pan with nonstick spray
2) in a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder // add nut/soy milk & veg butter & stir til just combined [DONT over-stir your batter!!]
3) scoop batter into piping bag, large ziplock bag with corner cut off OR just use a spoon and your fingers to fill donut pan.
4) fill each cup 1/3-1/2 full
5) bake 4-7 minutes until the top of the donuts spring back when touched
6) while donuts are cooling, make the frosting

how to make maple glaze : 

you need : 
*1 cup powdered sugar
*2 tablespoons nut/soy milk
*1- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure maple extract [we didnt have extract, so i actually used a bit of maple syrup]

how to do it : 
1) in a small bowl, stir everything together until powdered sugar is dissolved.
2) dip each donut in glaze, set on cookie sheet

*i love putting them in the fridge overnight & then heating them up in the morning ;)

and be sure to stop by the blog for tons of great [and healthy!] vegan recipes, diy projects and tips on sustainable/healthy living.

Thanks, Diana! I now want donuts and have to figure out when I have time to make them! YUUUUM!
