Natural Glazed Style Donuts




  • 2 cups Icing Sugar
  • 1 tbs Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cup Non Dairy Milk of your choice 



  1. In a jug whisk together the luke warm non dairy milk with the vegan margarine & yeast then set it aside for around 5 minutes to activate the yeast.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the flour, sugar & salt in a large mixing bowl or in an electric bread mixer with the dough hook attached. Make a well in the middle then add the milk mix. Stir with a fork/mix slowly until it mix starts combining.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface & start to knead.
  4. If you’re using a bread mixer, set the speed to medium and let it work for 4 minutes. If you’re doing it by hand, knead the dough for around 6 minutes. The dough will be on the wet side, add minimal flour to stop your hands from sticking. After needing the dough should be smooth.
  5. Oil the mixing bowl, bottom and sides, then place the dough. Cover the bowl with cling film or a damp cloth and leave somewhere warm for around 1 hour or until its double in size.
  6. After an hour, turn the the dough out from the bowl on to a lightly floured surface.
  7. Knead the dough for a minute. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough out to around 1cm thick. Then using pastry cutters, cut the dough into donut shapes of your choice. Let the cut donuts rise on your work surface for around 45 minutes, or until they have more or less doubled in size.
  8. Meanwhile pre heat your frying oil in a large saucepan, making sure the oil fills no more than half way high.
  9. When your oil is ready and your donuts have risen & are ready to fry, pick up a risen donuts then carefully place it into the oil. Fry 1 or 2 at a time, cooking for around 2-3 minutes or until golden, flipping over the donut halfway through cooking.
  10. Once fried use a spider to lift them out of the pan, then place the donuts onto a tray lined with kitchen paper to drain away any excess oil.
  11. Once the donuts have cooled, whisk together the glaze ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  12. Individually pick up the donuts and dunk them in the glaze. Place the glazed donuts onto a wire rack & leave to set.
  13. Enjoy!
