Baked Doughnut Nuggets

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegan butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg substitute (I use 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water)
2/3 cup nondairy milk (I use soy) Topping:
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For donuts, combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in medium mixing bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, whip butter and vegan sugar until light and fluffy. Beat flax and water together for egg, and let sit 1-2 minutes.
3. Add egg substitute to butter mixture, and beat until well-blended. Add 1/2 the flour mixture, mix; stir until smooth. Add 1/2 the milk; stir again until smooth. Repeat.
4. Spoon batter into miniature muffin tins until 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before removing.
5. For topping, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar and cinnamon. Roll nuggets in sugar mix, and enjoy!

I made these again recently, and they're so tasty!  They really remind me of those little powdered sugar cake donuts.  This time, I used 1/3 whole wheat flour and the rest unbleached all-purpose.  I also subbed applesauce for half the margarine.  I used my mini muffin pan and got 24 mini doughnut muffins.  I made a simple glaze with powdered sugar and a bit of vanilla and almond milk and drizzled that over the tops once cool, instead of rolling them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  The flavor of these really improves after storing overnight.


So this is the second time that I have made these.  The first time I made them according to the recipe, with the butter and all.  They were good, but a little over-nutmeg-gy (if that's even a word).  So, this time, I halfed the nutmeg and used applesauce instead of the butter.  Really, there is only one word to express my sentiments --  WOW!!!  They were so light and fluffy (not necessarily Krispy Kreme light and fluffy, more like Dunkin Donuts) and I didn't feel nearly as guilty feeding them to the 3 yr old, who by the way, DEVOURED them.


I too got drawn in by the skull-shaped pictures, and was not disappointed!  I didn't use the cinnamon-sugar topping, so mine were a bit bland, but next time I plan on buying some powdered sugar before I make them for the topping.  The texture was a little lighter than a cake donut, quite enjoyable, and they baked well, too!  Not sure if that's from baking vegan (this is my first vegan baking adventure) or if I just got lucky, because usually I either under-bake or burn things.  This one turned out perfectly!  Great for dessert this evening, and I may have one with my breakfast tomorrow as well!


I'm not gonna lie.. the photo of the skull shaped nuggets is what got me in here. I made these last night and I thought they were so good! The ingredients are simple... nothin' fancy here! I used a muffin pan and they turned out yummy. Thanks for this recipe!


They were a bit crumbly, which may be my fault for over mixing, but they were also a bit bland. I think they need vanilla or almond extract in the batter. They were great w/ chocolate frosting, though.


These were so good! I used apple sauce instead of soy butter, and they were still delicious. I placed blobs of dough on a baking sheet and used my finger to make a hole, so they turned out like cake donuts! After baking and cooling, I covered them in powdered sugar. They were yummy!!!


I absolutely LOVE these..I'm happy just to eat them plain, no toppings. I've always liked the plain cake donuts the best and the nutmeg makes it taste the same to me..Thank you for this fantastic recipe...


Yum!  These were really easy to make and tasted delicious!  My husband loved them, too and has begged me to have them in the house always.

Thanks for a great idea!  ;)b


:DThese were sooo yummy! Although they were slightly healthy tasting, I didn't mind. It made me feel less guilty about them!  ;D

I used chocolate almond milk for the soymilk and it gave it a slight chocolatey flavour that I'm just dying to have more of! I also used a little vanilla extract as well. I used an icing consisting of chocolate almond milk, butter, icing sugar, and vanilla extract (I don't know how much of each, though) and with them all done, they taste like the old fashioned glazed from timmies. Yum. Making these again, for sure!!!




i also did half chocolate as one other reviewer did

at first out of the oven they didn't taste quite like donuts but by the next day - they definitely  had that cake donut thing going on -

love them - thanks.
