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 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.


Love these!  Not exactly the texture of traditional doughnuts, but they have a great doughnut taste and are delicious!


My donuts didn't look anything nearly as gorgeous as some of those pictures, haha. My little sister loved these when I made them and donuts were her favorite food before she went vegan. Thanks for the recipe!


i made these for breakfast this morning and i couldnt believe how delicious they were.  I just added the cinnamon to the dry mix and dipped them in some chocolate sauce. they taste terrific by themselves though. thank you for the recipe!! :)


oh man, i gotta try these! YUM :>


i just made these and they are so good. i think i like these better then real doughnuts. i made a sugar glaze, a chocolate glaze and the sugar cinnamon from the recipe. if you use the topping from the recipe the nutmeg is good but i think next time i'm going to just make a chocolate glaze and put less nutmeg. im going to get so fat from these. they are too good.

oh and i also used half whole wheat flour, half applesauce for half the soy butter, and the ener g egg replacer.


These were awesome and super easy to make. I almost wish I wouldn't have found this tasty recipe.

I used a variety of toppings: powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, chocolate, and glazed. If you put powdered sugar on them, they taste exactly like the Hostess ones you used to get in a box in the pre-vegan days. But these are much better.

You picture looks wonderful!  What did you bake them in to make the doughnut shape? 

Thanks, guys! These are fabulous.

Biodancer, I used a mini bundt pan has twelve "cups" like a cupcake pan except they are shaped pretty.  :)
