Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free DOUGHNUTS

This weekend was all about Dairy, Egg,Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut DOUGHNUTS!

Every since I purchased my Wilton DOUGHNUT Pan, Matthew has been asking, “When are you going to make DOUGHNUTS!” This last week, he picked up his ‘game’. Every day, after school, he walked in the door, sniffed the air and said, “Did you make the DOUGHNUTS?”.

It’s all he can talk about. Of course, then there are all the various toppings to discuss…Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate, Strawberry and Maple Glazed and Powdered Sugar…oh my!

On Saturday, I adapted the recipe that Wilton provided on the packaging, to meet our allergen needs. The DOUGHNUTS were moist and cakey…easy to whip up!

My boys and their neighbourhood friend easily surrendered their hockey sticks to sample my freshly baked Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut DOUGHNUTS.

Cinnamon Sugar and Strawberry Glaze tied as the overall favourites.

On Sunday morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find more DOUGHNUT ideas over at The Edible Perspective.  Ashley’s blog gave me the idea of Triple Chocolate DOUGHNUTS.

I just replaced 1/2 cup of cake flour (from my recipe below) for dairy-free unsweetened cocoa, used 2 tsp of pure vanilla and added 1/2 cup of Enjoy Life chocolate chips. I made her Cocoa Buttercream Frosting to top them off…chocolate heaven!
Due to my boys’ nut allergies, I replaced the almond milk with water and used Earth Balance, (to keep the doughnuts soy free, use their soy free brand)

I wish there was more time in the day…so many DOUGHNUT ideas to adapt!

1 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup rice milk
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp water
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tsp canola oil
1 tsp pure vanilla

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a liquid measure, combine the rice milk and vinegar and let sit for 5 minutes.

Add the wet to the dry and stir until just combined.
Spray the DOUGHNUTS pan with canola spray and fill each donut cup with 2/3 of the batter.

Cinnamon Sugar DOUGHNUT (recipe provided on Wilton packaging)

2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp Earth Balance, melted (for soy allergy, use their soy free brand)

Combine sugar and cinnamon.
Dip doughnut in melted Earth Balance and then in cinnamon sugar mixture.

Chocolate Glaze (recipe provided on Wilton packaging)

1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
1 tbsp Earth Balance (for soy allergy, use their soy free brand)
1 tbsp light corn syrup

In a microwavable bowl, melt the above ingredients on medium for approximately 1 minute stirring until melted and combined. (They suggested adding hot water to thin which I found unnecessary)

Dip DOUGHNUT in chocolate glaze.

Strawberry Glaze

I didn’t really measure for this one…just mixed some homemade strawberry jam with icing sugar, water and a bit of Earth Balance (for soy allergy, use their soy free brand) until it was a nice consistency for spreading over the DOUGHNUT.

Maple Glaze

Again, I just eyeballed pure maple syrup, a bit of Earth Balance (for soy allergy, use their soy free brand), icing sugar and water until it was a nice consistency and maple flavouring.

I am very excited to try other varieties of DOUGHNUTS: Matthew really wants to try Lemon with a Lemon Sugar Glaze…me too…yummy!

P.S. As much as the boys’ loved the DOUGHNUTS…they kept reminding me that the DOUGHNUTS really tasted more like ‘a cake in the shape of a DOUGHNUT.

    • That is wonderful! Was it food allergies that kept her away from trying them before now? Did you make them for her or did you buy them? Sorry for the delayed response!

      • I made them; her multiple food allergies keep her away from them, and I hadn’t thought it possible to make a good alternative, but I was wrong! She still prefers cookies and cupcakes (home made of course) and will often put them on the ‘shopping list’ which is sometimes more of a ‘request’ list 😉

  1. My kids have the same allergies and have never had a donut so this is great ! Which Cocoa do you use ? I can’t find one without any allergen warnings.

    • Hi there! I have been using Hershey’s cocoa…my mother brings it to me from the States. It has no warnings on it but please always check before purchasing.

      I used to order cocoa from Guardian Angel Foods but I do not see it on their product list anymore. Click here for a link to their site.

  2. Hi Susan – thank you for this great recipe! May I clarify – is it 2 cups of cake flour AND 2 cups of pastry flour? I have cake flour but am not familiar with pastry flour. Thank you!! :0)

Shall we discuss?
