So my sweet sissy and niece are visiting me for the week from Las Vegas. My sister found out a couple of years ago that she can't eat gluten or dairy along with a few other food items. So I created this donut recipe exclusively for her. I have to say, these were really good. We all really liked them and my sis was overjoyed to have something made especially for her.
Chocolate Cake Donuts (Gluten Free and Dairy Free)
Makes 6 donuts
1 cup oats, ground into a fine powder (You can use a food processor or blender.)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Heat oven to 325. Coat donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In large bowl, whisk oat powder, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In small bowl, whisk soy milk, sugar, egg, oil and vanilla until smooth. Add soy milk mixture to oat mixture; whisk until blended and smooth.
3. Batter is more liquidy than firm. Spoon batter into donut pan, filling until 2/3 full. Bake at 325 for 13 minutes. Cool in pan on rack 3 minutes, then carefully turn out directly onto rack to cool.
For chocolate-frosted donuts: Combine 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa and 2 tablespoons vanilla soy milk. Stir until smooth. Dip cooled donuts into bowl and allow excess frosting to drip back into bowl. Transfer to rack. Top with sprinkles, coconut or mini chips, if desired.
