Indulge in homemade donuts

Written by  Staff Writer

Donuts are a guilty pleasure for many people. Though they might not make nutritionists smile, donuts are a beloved indulgence.

People who love donuts may find that love reaches a new level after they try their hands at the following recipe for “Cookies and Cream Donuts” from Heather Saffer’s “Crazy Easy Vegan Desserts” (Sterling Epicure).

Cookies and Cream Donuts

Makes 6 donuts

11⁄2    teaspoons distilled white vinegar
1    cup gluten-free flour
1⁄4    cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1⁄2    teaspoon baking soda
    Pinch of salt
1⁄2    cup granulated sugar
1⁄4    cup unsweetened applesauce
2    teaspoons coconut oil, melted
1    teaspoon vanilla extract
12    vegan crunchy chocolate cookies, crushed
1    12-ounce jar Dollop Gourmet
    Madagascar Vanilla vegan frosting

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Pour the vinegar into a 1⁄2 cup measure. Add enough milk to come to the brim. Let sit until slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, applesauce, coconut oil, and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until smooth. Add the almond milk mixture and continue mixing for 1 minute more. Add half of the crushed cookies and mix until just combined.

4. Scoop the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling three-quarters of the way full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool before frosting.

5. Microwave the uncovered frosting jar for 5-second intervals, stirring in between, until soft. Gently frost the top of each donut. Sprinkle the remaining crushed cookies over the donuts.
