Vegan Spelt Flour Donuts with Blueberry Icing

I finally bought a donut tin! I was actually thinking about it for months, the only thing which had stopped me was the idea of eating too many donuts once I have it and this might actually be the case now. Because baking them was much easier and quicker than I thought it would be! I’ll be trying out different recipes, this one worked out very well so I’m sharing it with you. And the blueberry icing is a bomb!

Ingredients

  • 125g spelt flour
  • each one teaspoon baking powder and baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 chia egg (1 tsp chia seeds mixed with 3 tsp water)
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 80 ml almond milk
  • 60 ml coconut oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla seeds

For the icing

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp blueberry juice (homemade)
  • vegan white chocolate
  • toppings like shredded coconut, pistachios etc.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease the donut tin with a bit of coconut oil
  2. Add all ingredients in a big bowl and whisk together
  3. Pipe the dough into the tin and leave enough space because the donut will increase a lot in size once in the oven
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until its slightly golden brown
  5. While the donuts are in the oven, start preparing the blueberry icing. Therefore, heat up a hand full of frozen or fresh blueberries with a bit of water in a pot for 5 minutes. Strain through a sieve and keep the juice. Let it cool down.
  6. Get the donuts out of the oven and cool them down. Melt the white chocolate and mix the blueberry juice with the icing sugar.
  7. Glace the donuts and add toppings of your choice.

Happy baking!
