I'm bringing donuts to my kiddos end of season party and I don't want to drive an hour to get awesome vegan donuts. I DO want yummy, sugary donuts. I have a few recipes for baked donuts that our family likes (and don't care whether they are baked or fried), but none that I would serve up to 10 kids expecting krispy cremes.

Any one have a go-to or fail safe recipe they know of?

here's the recipe from my box - haven't made it in a loooong while, so i don't have any photos to share :(

Classic Yeasted Doughuts

1 1/4 cups warm soymilk
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/4 cup agave syrup
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon salt

  1. Pour the warm soymilk into the bowl of your stand mixer, sprinkle the yeast over the water and drizzle with agave. Let stand for about 10 minutes until foamy.
  2. Add the flour and salt to the bowl and knead with the dough hook until the dough is stretchy.
  3. Cover the bowl and let dough rise until doubled in size, then punch down the dough.
  4. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness on floured work surface and cut out the doughnuts.
  5. Cover and let the dough rise again for about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Fry in hot oil (360-375F) and cool on wire rack - glaze while still warm or ice once completely cooled.

Thank you! Could I do this with a hand mixer and by hand? I don't have a stand mixer. :( And what kind of oil do you recommend? I typically only buy coconut oil and realize that isn't going to work here.

why wouldn't coconut work? i think it might be ideal. it's saturated and can take the heat, and could potentially make for a better donut surface.

There are the chocolate donuts in Chloe's Vegan Desserts that are nice; I have to say that they taste like cakes in the shape of donuts to me (they're baked), but still, with icing and sprinkles and what not, I am sure they would be very popular!

the dough is going to get thick and could burn-up a hand mixer - you'd be better off mixing the ingredients with a spatula or spoon and then kneading by hand.

i concur with supercarrot - the coconut oil is ideal.

Thanks! I guess I was just thinking that coconut oil is so expensive and it takes a lot to fry!

This is a good recipe, made it for omnivores who said "I can't believe these are vegan!"

These are the best: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/m ... doughnuts/

A pain in the asparagus to make, but well worth the effort.
