A vegan and yeast free doughnuts for our tea time treat this week. Found this recipe on Facebook. It looks easy and quick to make.
These Vegan Homemade Doughnuts use vegan margarine and soy milk without yeast. If you're not a vegan, you can use butter and fresh milk.
Original recipe calls for deep frying but I opt for baking instead. Also did not coat them with sugar as we wanted a savory version.
The dough of these Vegan Homemade Doughnuts are really sticky, I added a tablespoon of flour to make it easier to shape by forming the dough into a ball, flatten it and make a hole with your floured finger or else roll the dough and use a doughnut cutter.
The doughnuts turned out very tasty despite they don't rise much as compared with deep fried ones. I think we need to add another teaspoon of baking powder if it is baked (original uses 1 teaspoon).
Liquid can be replaced for fruit juice, you can even add chopped dried fruit.
For savory bread, add tomato juice instead of soy milk, sun dried tomato may be added to the dough
Brush the dough with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and oregano for foccacia flavor.
