Chocolate Donuts

Donuts!  I have both a donut pan and a mini donut pan and recently was itching to find a recipe to satisfy my craving (since vegan donuts are a stupidly hard thing to come by).  I was out for a bit on Saturday and when I came back, Trevor had made these.  Uh-huh.  Now, some might argue that baked donuts is an oxymoron of sorts, and that it’s more like a cake with a hole in the middle.  Fine, whatever, but what a mighty fine holey cake it is.  And it tastes like donut, not cake, but perhaps that’s the hole tricking me.  Who knows?  Anyway, donuts!

The recipe is from Tahini Too over here and is definitely worth you taking the time to make.

Before we headed to the cottage last weekend, I figured we’d want something to nibble on for the long (5.5 hour) trip there.  I had just been given a donut pan + a mini donut pan for my birthday and thought it’d be as good a time as any to put it to use.  I was given a great donut cookbook as well which had a surprising amount of vegan stuff in it, but was missing a couple ingredients and didn’t feel like going to the grocery store.  So I followed the recipe from VeganYumYum.  They turned out pretty okay, but it was totally my fault that they weren’t better.  I accidentally used too much salt and forgot to add the egg replacer – oops!  I blame it on the pre-cottage stress.  They sure were pretty, though.

Trevor’s addendum:  Despite what Crystal says, these were totally amazing.  I ate, like, 20.
