Vegan Doughnuts

These vegan cake doughnuts come together in about 5 minutes and are baked, not fried – so no fuss/no muss. They are tender, lightly sweet, and I’ve served ’em up with not one – not two – but THREE yummy toppings.

1/2 cup non-dairy spread (such as Earth Balance)
egg replacer to equal 2 eggs (I love The Neat Egg)
2/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup dairy-free milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees; grease and flour three doughnut pans (I love these).

Melt the non-dairy spread in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Add the egg replacer, maple syrup, milk and vanilla and whisk till smooth. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk again.

Spoon batter into your prepared pans, filling each cavity no more than halfway (you’ll get between 16 and 18 doughnuts). Bake for 12 minutes or till firm to the touch. Let cool in pans …
