Can You Say Sugar Rush???

Mimiature Jelly Doughnuts

Miniature Jelly Doughnuts

I was never  a big doughnut enthusiast back when I wasn’t vegan. I love bread and I like sweets but it was just never my thing. Somehow when I went vegan I all of a sudden longed for things that I never really ate. I’ve had some of those pre-packaged vegan donut holes that you can pick up at the store but they are just alright. I know that vegan doughnuts are very popular in other parts of the country but here in Los Angeles there just isn’t a credible source for truly vegan donuts. So when I received a copy of the September Vegetarian Times with recipes for vegan doughnuts I was excited because now I could try my hand at making my own. And OH MY GOD, am I glad I did! A fresh, warm, miniature jelly filled donut is like, well… let’s just say that I had enough to get a really nice sugar rush!



These little jems are truly addictive! They taste the best right after assembly while still warm but they are delicious the next day too! The whole process takes a few hours but it is sooo totally worth it!

It was relatively easy to fill them with rasberry jam once I got the hang of it and some really ballooned up once I realized that I could really squeeze it in there! I used a 2″ biscuit cutter and they ended up looking almost like doughnut holes – so fun. I think that might be the problem – they are so small and cute and delicious that I just keep popping them in my mouth until I realize that I have a ton of “energy” – ha!
Oh I almost forgot, would you like the recipe? You can find it here!
Now go make some vegan doughnuts!
