Spiced Maple Donuts
I think, I have heard jingle bells while eating these Maple spiced donuts. Can you imagine eating these and hearing the jingle bells song every time you chew but the song stopping everything you stop chewing! That was just a funny thought that popped into my mind and I couldn’t help but sharing.
These yummy, delicious little rounds of heaven are perfect for the holidays but you would also catch me eating these during the off season😅. I just throw on a different color icing, but I keep the spiced aspect of them because that is what I love about them.
Are these baked?
Yes, these are baked and although I love my deep fried Old Fashion Donuts, I absolutely love these baked ones. They are also, a healthier option.
Are these hard to make?
These are as hard to make as baking a cake. The batter for these is super easy, and it’s just like whipping up a cake batter. The hardest thing about making these is that fact that you have to wait for then to cool, in order to ice them and eat them. That’s really that hard part!
Can I fry these?
This donut recipe is made from a runny cake like batter. Rather then a rolled out dough which is what is best used for frying donuts. I would say no because one, I haven’t tried it and I don’t like to recommend things I haven’t tried doing myself, and two you might end up with a funnel cake. If you pipe it into hot oil, but again I have never tried that. Just an idea that just popped into my mind. It might me a horrible idea!
These maple spiced donuts are pretty quick and easy to make, so have fun and enjoy yourself a delicious holiday donut, or share it with the family. For food memories.
Spiced Maple Donuts
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Cup non dairy milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp all spice
- 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp pure maple extract
- 3-4 tbsp non dairy milk
- Pinch of salt and food coloring
- Preheat Oven 350 degress F.
- Start off by adding some unsweetened apple sauce into a large mixing bowl along with liquid coconut oil, plant based milk, vanilla extract and mix to combine.
- Add in granulated sugar, add spices salt, and baking powder. Again mix together to combine. Once combined well, add in all purpose flour and whisk until smooth. This should resemble pancake batter and smell amazing!
- Add batter into donut pan to get a dozen donuts and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Remove from donut pan and place onto a cooling rack to cool completely before icing.
- The part of the donut the cooks in contact with the pan will be beautifully golden. I like to frost the lighter side.
- For our icing/glaze add powdered sugar, maple syrup, plant based milk and stir until fully combined. You can add more powdered sugar for a thicker consistency and food coloring of your choice if you wish!
- Dip donuts one at a time into the icing and place back onto cooling rack to allow any excess icing to drip off. Add a baking sheet underneath for easy clean up.
