These are crazy easy and delicious donuts that you need to make ASAP. This is my first time baking my own donuts and I’m so glad I did. Everyone needs more donuts in their life.
Donuts are my favorite! I used to have so many donuts as a child. I’d always get a donut at Cub Foods when I’d go to the grocery store with my mom or dad. It was such a fun and yummy treat! But, when I found out I was allergic to cashews and pistachios I could no longer eat donuts whenever I was out and about at places like Cub Foods because of cross-contamination. So, thankfully there is a wonderful place that has nut free donuts and ice cream called Yoyo donuts. I love that place! I’ve gotten 2 birthday donut tier cakes from there (my sister has had one too). The only downside is that it is a bit of a drive from where I live. So, when I go there, it’s usually a special occasion.
When I was younger I loved yeast-raised donuts and I didn’t care for cake donuts. But, as I’ve gotten older I prefer a cakier donut! So, when Ambitious Kitchen came out of this recipe younger me would have passed. But, my older and matured taste buds now got very excited. Also, now I can have donuts whenever I want!!! Not just for a special occasion!
Do you see this glaze? It’s genius. Blueberries + sugar. Amazing.
Ingredients: Makes 12 donuts (from ambitiouskitchen.com)
- 2 tablespoons melted and cooled coconut oil
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk)
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Optional: 1/2 cup blueberries
- For the blueberry glaze:
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 2/3 cup organic powdered sugar
Directions: from ambitiouskitchen.com
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- In a large bowl, mix together the coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, almond extract, almond milk.
- Next, stir in almond flour. Then, add in wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined. Optional: add in 1/2 cup of blueberries.
- Spray a donut pan with nonstick oil spray. Pipe or spoon the mixture into the donut pan so that it is level. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until donuts bounce back. Transfer to a cooling rack.
- To make the glaze add the blueberries and water to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes until blueberries boil down. Once the blueberries have condensed, add to a blender and blend, then pour over a fine strainer into a medium bowl.
- In a separate bowl add powdered sugar then add about 2-3 tablespoons of condensed blueberry juice. If the mixture is too thin, add a little more powdered sugar. Then dip the top of each donut into the blueberry glaze and transfer back to a wire rack.
- You can freeze these! Let them thaw or microwave before eating :))
