Vegan Baked Lemon Doughnuts
This week we have some vegan donuts made with lemons.
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 cup gluten free flour OR all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 teaspoons lemon zest
- 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 3/4 teaspoon lemon extract
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Grease your doughnut pan (if needed).
Prepare your flax egg by whisking together ground flax seeds and water. Set aside to thicken.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and lemon zest.
In a small bowl, mix the milk, melted coconut oil, lemon extract, and flax mixture together.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well to combine. Don’t over mix.
Using a piping bag or a large Ziploc bag, pipe the mixture into each cavity.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let the pan sit for a few minutes before removing the doughnuts.
Remove the doughnuts from the pan and place on a cooling rack.
Add the powdered sugar to a small bowl and add the lemon juice, and lemon zest (if using).
Mix until everything has combined into a liquid glaze.
When the doughnuts have fully cooled (they don’t take long!), dip the tops of each doughnut into the glaze. Repeat with all the doughnuts.
Place the doughnuts back onto the cooling rack for the excess glaze to drip off and for the glaze to firm up. (Place a piece of parchment paper under the rack to catch the drips!)
