Dark Chocolate Stuffed Donuts (Vegan)
Thick, dense, sugary, chocolate stuffed classic style donuts!
A vegan twist on a classic recipe i’m sure everyone knows and loves, perfect to make for an event, treat or simply even for yourself as they keep so well in an air-tight container.
As much as I love making ‘healthier’ alternative recipes, once in a while you just need the good old deep-fried full fat version as a treat because there’s nothing wrong with everything in moderation.
I definitely think I out-did myself with making these vegan too- you’d never know they were dairy free and you’d certainly not miss it either! The dark chocolate centre gives them an extra element of indulgence too, making them serious show-stoppers all round. Give them a go and let me know what you think!
-250g Plain flour
-100g Sugar or Sukrin for sugar-free
-50g Vegan butter or dairy-free spread
-3g Vanilla extract
-5g Yeast extract
-120ml Soy milk
-2 TBS Sunflower oil
-1 TSP Baking powder
-½ TSP Salt
-150g Dark Chocolate (melted)
1.Gently melt the butter then add the milk and oil and pop to the side.
2.In a blender, add your flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and yeast extract. Add your wet mix then blend till a thick ball of dough forms. Cover and allow to rise for a few hours.
3.Using your hands, roll dough into little flat balls (make sure to place flour on your hands to avoid getting sticky!)
4.Heat up oil in a deep pan, you know it’s hot enough when bubbles start to rise.
5.Gently lay the donuts into the oil using a spatula (do this one at a time) and fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
6.Roll the donuts into a bowl of the sugar when still warm then allow to cool, once cooled pierce a hole into the middle using a chopstick or thick skewers then pipe your melted dark chocolate into the centre!
