Space Donuts
Gang/Type: Dessert
Ergibt/Yield: 6 Donuts
For the donuts:
  • 160 g ( 1 cup) white flour - spelt or wheat
  • 60 g (1/4 cup) sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) soy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vingegar
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp ground (golden) flax seeds, combined with 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp neutral tasting oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract - alternative 1/2 tsp ground vanilla
For the icing:
  • 250g (about 1 cup) powdered sugar
  • 2 - 2 1/2 tbsp soy milk
  • 2 tbsp margarine or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 pinch salt
  • food coloring in blue, purple and turquoise
  • edible glimmer powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C (360° F) and grease a donut mold.
  2. Combine the ground flax seeds with water and set aside. Also combine soy milk and apple cider vinegar and let curdle.
  3. In a bowl mix flour, sugar, starch, baking powder and salt. Pour soy milk, flax seeds, oil, vanilla extract and apple sauce in a sauce pan and heat up slighty warmer than lukewarm but not simmering.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and give it a good stir.
  5. Pour the dough in a freezer bag, cut off the edge and pipe the dough in the donut mold.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 10 - 12 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the mold immediately and let cool completely.
  7. For the icing combine all ingredients except for the dye and the glimmer. Add one drop of dye of each color to your icing and marble it with a spoon handle by drawing circles and s-forms into your icing.
  8. Dip in the cold donut halfway, turn it a little and pull it out. Let drip on a cooling rack and dust with glimmer powder.
Make sure the icing isn't too runny, so your icing stays on the donuts ;-)
