“Are you craving a donut but can’t have gluten? Are you on a special diet that eliminates gluten? Do you have friends coming over and want to offer them something sweet, but also something safe for their diet? Luckily, it’s super easy to make Chocolate Cake Donuts in your own home.
Cake donuts are one of the easiest kinds to make at home since they only require a few ingredients. A traditional cake donut is made with flour, sugar, eggs, and other liquids like milk or water. Usually, cake donuts are fried in oil or fat (like shortening), which means they aren’t exactly healthy.
Luckily there are plenty of ways you can make a healthier donut at home. Instead of using the usual fats to fry the donuts (which includes cutting back on the amount of fat and maybe greasing them with coconut oil instead), you can use a microwave instead!
We have a great vegan donut shop here in Seattle that my husband and I love to stop by when we have out-of-town guests. Sometimes you need to push a little (no, I swear they’re good!), and I get it: I’ve eaten my fair share of vegan baked goods.
But these donuts are exceptional because they taste just like the traditional donuts you ate as a kid. The texture is just right – super delicate and light. , I took it a step further and made my version gluten-free for everyone to enjoy.
I usually try not to write recipes that require special utensils, but these require donut molds to close. However, donut molds are relatively cheap and widely available at kitchen supply stores and online stores. I used a donut mold for this recipe. once you have the
donut mold, you’re on your way to this recipe’s smooth, savory, chocolatey morning oil. Because I love its sweet, natural scent and I think it goes well with chocolate. That means you can use any oil you like.
Once the oil is heated and liquid, let it cool at room temperature for 10 minutes. This keeps the mixture smooth when added to other liquid ingredients. warm before mixing. I prefer soy milk or oat milk for this recipe
If used cold right out of the refrigerator, the temperature difference between the two liquids can cause the coconut oil to harden. Milk and oil should be at the same temperature.
BEST EATING FOODS SAME DAY
This dough is so thick and sticky that you have to spoon the dough into the donut molds and use your fingertips to press it into each mold. Do your best to flatten the top – they end up on the bottom of the doughnut.
So if they’re a little ugly, it’s not the end of the world. Donuts are best eaten the same day they’re made, so invite your friends over for a leisurely breakfast this weekend. A donut with a mild cacao flavor and light texture, icing with a rich chocolate punch.
