Cooking with Manuela: Vegan Chocolate DonutsJune 12, 2020
Lick-your-finger delicious chocolate donuts with chocolate glaze
So good you wouldn’t even guess they are vegan
Say hello to my latest
creation! These chocolate donuts are simply irresistible and all you can
ask for in a donut.
They are rich and soft, and covered
in a sinfully delicious chocolate glaze.
They are quick and laughably easy to make. It takes no more than 30 minutes
from start to finish to whip them up.
They are baked – not fried. So, there’s no guilt when eating one (or several)
AND, best of all, they are VEGAN. No eggs, milk, or butter in here. But a
secret ingredient… Any guess of what that might be?!?
Mori-Nu Silken TOFU!
Did you guess it
correctly?!? Okay, maybe that wasn’t much of a surprise, and my photo just
gave it away. Anyways, to make these donuts extra tender and soft, I used
Mori-Nu Silken Tofu together with some applesauce and a bit of vegetable oil.
No eggs, milk nor butter.
I love the most about this tofu is that it’s such a versatile ingredient. Not
only can you sear it, crumble it or cube it to add to your favorite stir-fried
dishes, soups or bowls. But it’s a heart-healthy vegetable protein that makes a
great alternative for dairy and eggs in your baking and cooking.
Silken Tofu is low-fat, gluten-free, preservatives-free, and it doesn’t
need refrigeration (until opened of course). You can read more about this
tofu and discover some fun and interesting recipes here: https://www.morinu.com/en/recipes/
As I mentioned before, this recipe
is quite easy and quick. It only requires 30 minutes of your time, one large
mixing bowl, a whisk, and one of these not-expensive donut pans (great
investment if you ask me!). This recipe is so easy that you will want to make
them again. and again. and again. Check out this one-minute video, and see for
Here is a last suggestion for you
before you start with the recipe: use a whole box of Mori-Nu Silken Tofu,
double up the rest of the ingredients, and you will end up with twelve donuts.
You will want to eat the extras for sure. Happy Baking 🙂
Sift the flour with the cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl.
And mix until just combined.
