Nut free, Egg free and Dairy free (Vegan) Doughnuts

Nut free, Egg and Dairy Free Doughnuts

I've been playing around with doughnut recipes for a while. Mostly they have been egg free recipes and gluten free ones. The results have been mixed and varied. This one is the best so far - without egg or dairy. I'll have to work on my Gluten free Vegan doughnuts further and get them post-worthy! When that happens, I'm sure you'll hear about it! But for now, here are my.....

Nut free Vegan Doughnuts

Dry Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cup strong flour
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1 tablespoon sugar

Wet Ingredients:
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon applesauce
1 tablespoon soy or coconut yoghurt
1 tablespoon sunflower oil

Method : Combine all the ingredients together and knead to a soft and elastic dough. Cover and leave to rise till dough doubles, about 30 minutes. Roll out to 1/4" thick and cut out doughnuts with a cutter. Cover cut out doughnuts with a damp tea towel and leave to rise again. Lift out carefully and fry in hot oil over medium heat. Glaze them as you wish or toss in cinnamon sugar. Note not to over fry, or the doughnuts become hard. Best eaten fresh.
