[RECIPE!] Vegan Gingerbread Donuts + Ginger Maple Glaze

Vegan Ginger Donuts and Maple Glaze

Recently became Vegan. In this journey I've noticed a lack of what my greedy ass craves, sweets. I decided to fill this void myself. So I'm on a journey to bake Vegan versions of my favorite desserts and candies.  For my first cooking experience on YouTube, I tackled my beloved donuts. Watch the video below to learn how to make Vegan Gingerbread Donuts with Ginger Maple Glaze.

Vegan Gingerbread Donuts + Ginger Maple Glaze

(Print the Recipe!)

Notes: this recipe makes about 12 baked donuts, and it only takes about 30 minutes in total to throw together.

Donut Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 ¾ cup flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp ground ginger

  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg

  • ¼ tsp ground cloves

  • Pinch of all spice

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup oil - (I used coconut)

  • 1 tbsp vinegar (I used apple cider)

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 cup lukewarm non-dairy milk or water (I used almond milk)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and oil the donut pans with vegan butter, oil, or spray. I use coconut oil or vegan butter.

In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt).

In a medium bowl slowly whisk together the wet ingredients sugar, milk, vanilla and oil.

Create a large well in the dry ingredients, then slowly pour the wet ingredients into it. Whisk until well combined.

Fill a pastry bag or plastic ziplock bag {cut the end} with the batter and distribute it evenly into the donut pans. You can also just scoop the batter into each donut hole. Til each is about 2/3 full. Makes it easier if you place the bag inside a tall cup when placing batter into it. Bake for 10-13 minutes, remove from the oven. Let sit in tray for 5 minutes then pop the donuts out of the pan and let cool on a rack.

Ginger Maple Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • ¼ tsp ground ginger

  • 1-2 tbsp water or milk (I used almond milk)

In a small bowl. Mix together powdered sugar, maple syrup and ginger. Add milk one tsp at a time until desired consistency.

Once donuts are cooled, dip each one into the glaze. Set on wire rack and repeat until all donuts are complete.
