Heart Attack Chocolate Doughnuts

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups granulated beet sugar (you can use unrefined brown, too)
Equivilant of 2 eggs in Ener-G Egg Replacer (I use Ener-G brand; 3 teaspoon powder + 4 tablespoon water)
4 tablespoon , margarine (or light vegetable oil)
4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup soy milk mixed with 1 teaspoon white vinegar
3 1/2 cups unbleached flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

What you do: 

Beat the Ener-G Egg Replacer and vegan sugar together until creamy in consistancy.
Melt the margarine and chocolate together in a small saucepan over low heat. Beat into the vegan sugar mixture until well combined.
Combine the soy milk, vinegar and vanilla. Stir this into the vegan sugar/chocolate mixture.
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir this into the liquid mixture until it forms a dough. Chill this for about 1/2 hour to make it easier to handle.
Roll 1/2 the dough out onto a lightly floured board to a 1/2 thickness. Cut out the doughnuts with a 3 diameter doughnut cutter (or regular, round cookie cutter). Let them rest for about 10 minutes before frying. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Deep fry in hot oil for about 90 seconds each, turning every 15 seconds. Remove from the hot oil and allow them to drain on paper towels. Cool, and ice, glaze or sprinkle with powdered vegan sugar as per your desires. They are also very good plain!

anyone know how i could bake these...? i have a donut pan i wanna put to good use.


These were amazing- they tasted like Oreo cookies.
They do need more "eggs". When I put them in the oil, they crumbled and wouldn't stay together. I shaped more and then froze them before I stuck them in the oil, which seemed to help a bit- they didn't crumble as much.
I would have added another two "eggs" and then they would have been perfect.


I 3rded this recipe and subbed coconut for chocolate...thats all I had. But it turned out really well! Thanks for the recipe.


Just for the people who asked i just submitted a recipie for regual doughnuts with a regual glaze! should be up in a few weeks!

btw whoever said glaze is = parts water and powdered sugar! gross....
try 1/4 cup silk creamer 2 cups powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract over very very low heat....much better tasting
