maple vegan baked donuts
12 portions


For the donuts

  • 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup almond milk

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 2-4 tbsp water, warm

To decorate

  • 100g vegan chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp coconut oil,  melted
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate curls


For the donuts

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Grease a x2 6-hole donut pans with vegetable oil and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and stir till combined.
  3. Add in the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl: mirin, coconut cream, maple syrup, coconut oil, almond milk and stir until combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into a piping bag and snip a 1 cm hole at the point. Pipe batter into each of the donut holes. Don’t over fill as they will rise. Use a wet finger to smooth the dough where they meet.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes until a skewer inserted into the sponge comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely.

For the glaze

  1. Add the icing sugar, maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of warm water into a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Glaze needs to be able to coat the back of a spoon. Add more water one teaspoon at a time if it’s too stiff.
  2. Dip the donuts into the glaze and decorate some with chocolate curls whilst the glaze is wet, then set aside for the glaze to harden. Mix the melted milk chocolate and coconut oil together and drizzle the remaining glazed donuts with the melted chocolate. Enjoy!

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
