Chocolate Coated Donuts

 

Home-made delicious donuts you can enjoy warm straight from the oven, or allow them to cool and cover with chocolate. These delights not only look great but are easy to make – everything mixed in one bowl, poured into a donut tray and baked. You can get the trays  online, I used a silicone non-stick one. http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/wilton-doughnut-tin-12-holes/625682-1000 .

Ingredients:

(make 6 donuts)

1 cup gluten free plain flour

1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)

1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond)

teaspoon vanilla extract

teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

teaspoon white wine or apple cider vinager

Chocolate topping (optional)

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

1 tablespoon cacao powder

Method:

(temperature 180’)

(cook time 20min)

– pour all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk them to combine and get rid of any lumps.

– add all the liquids into the dry mixture and whisk until you have a smooth batter.

– spoon the mixture into the donut moulds making sure to fill the individual moulds up 3/4 with the batter, therefore allowing the donuts to rise slightly whilst cooking.

– pop into the preheated oven and cook for 20mins.

– remove the tray from the oven and allow the donuts to cool down for 10mins before removing them from the tray and placing them on a wire rack.

(Optional chocolate topping)

– simply mix together the melted coconut oil and cacao powder in a shallow dish. Take each donut and place it face down into the chocolate liquid allowing the top to be evenly coated. Leave to set for 10 mins then tuck in!
