If you like a deep chocolaty taste, you are gonna love this brownie donuts! They are moist, soft and incredibly delicious. You better chop the cherries very small, so that the donuts bake even.

I softened the glaze with coconut oil. This way it stays soft while drying and gives an extra delicacy.Enjoy your treat!



Brownuts - Brownie Donuts with Cherries
Ergibt/Yield: 6 Brownuts
For the brownuts:
  • 120 g (3/4 cup) white flour - spelt or wheat
  • 30 g (1/4 cup) cocoa powder
  • 80 g (1/2 cup) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 160 ml (2/3 cup) soy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp neutral tasting oil
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed, ground
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 cherries

For the glaze:
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil - alternative vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. In a bowl mix the dry ingredients. Grease a donut mold and preheat the oven to 180° C (360° F). Combine flaxseed and water and let jelly. Mix soy milk and apple cider vinegar and let curdle. Pit the cherries and finely chop them.

  2. In a sauce pan heat up the wet ingredients including the flaxseed a little warmer than lukewarm, but do not boil them. Pour over the dry ingredients, add the cherries and stir briefly but thoroughly.

  3. Pour the dough in a freezer bag, cut off a corner and pipe the dough into the donut mold. Bake in the oven for about 10 - 15 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Make sure, you don't stick it into a cherry and thus bake the donuts too long. Remove from the mold immediately and let cool completely on a cooling rack.

  4. Meanwhile prepare the glaze. In a bain-marie melt the chocolate, coconut oil and agave nectar. Mix well, then add the vanilla extract and combine.

  5. Let the glaze cool down until it's lukewarm and then dunk the donuts halfway in and let them drip off on a cooling rack. Or pour the glaze in a freezer bag and sprinkle it over the donuts.
