This recipe was provided by the cooking club for kids Raddish Kids. Raddish Kids does not sponsor me, but my niece is subscribed to their cooking box and wanted to make this recipe together. Since it turned out so good I wanted to share my veganized recipe with you!

Vegan Donuts

In 2020 vegan donuts are pretty easy to find, in larger cities. But most places still don’t have access to plant based donuts. With this recipe you can bring the donuts, along with the delicious smells of fall baking, to your home.

The batter is quite simple, and you just need silicone donut molds to get the job done!

The Batter

This batter is made of the usual suspects, flour, baking powder and warming spices. Next, the real kicker is the apple cider. There is so much flavor from the small amount of apple cider! It also asks as a rising agent, leaving you with perfect, pillowy donuts. Yum!

The only vegan substitutes that have to be made are flax eggs, in place of eggs, and vegan butter, in place of butter. Super simple!

The Topping

Next up, we have to chat about this topping. I love that the topping is a very easy cinnamon sugar. You simply dip your fresh donuts in some vegan butter and then right into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
