Dairy and egg free donuts

This recipe is an adapted version of a  New York Times donut recipe with substitutions added by my beautiful friend from Teal Living.  Miss 10 actually did most of it herself with a bit of help from me and Miss 3.  We used our bread maker machine on the dough setting, but you can easily do it in a cake mixer as well.

We made a variety of fillings and glazes for these dairy and egg free donuts.
Vanilla glaze: heat dairy free milk and vanilla, then whisk in icing sugar until white and creamy and stiff enough to glaze.
Chocolate glaze: as for vanilla glaze but only use half as much icing sugar and melt in dairy free chocolate buttons.
Dip in icing sugar and fill with raspberry jam
Dip in icing sugar and fill with custard made with dairy free milk
Dip in cinnamon sugar
Dip in vanilla glaze and place sprinkles on the top.

Hope you enjoy these dairy and egg free donuts!

    Those look so good! Thank-you for sharing the recipes. How do you make a custard with rice milk?

      Hi 🙂 For these donuts, we just made a packet custard with milk substitute and the custard powder 🙂

      Hi 🙂 I presume he is allergic to eggs as well? If so, a packet brand of egg substitute should work. We have one here called ‘No Egg’ but I’m not sure where you are. Feel free to message me on the Facebook page if you want me to send through a picture of what I mean 🙂

    How thick/thin do you roll it out to?

      I think this is for the cinnamon biscuits…but its really up to you. If you roll thin, they will cook very quickly…I usually make mine about 0.5 cm then stack them on top of each other..so they are about 1 cm high all up.
