Donut's - who can resist a Doughnut?

Donut vs Doughnut : The Battle Continues......
The Official Dictionary Spelling of the word in question—if you're into that sort of thing—is “doughnut.” The expedited, simplified Americanized spelling is of course “donut,” as Grammarist tell us it has been around since at least the late 19th century but it didn't catch on though until late in the 20th century.
Today, writers outside the U.S. still favour doughnut by a wide margin. Donut appears about a third of the time in published American writing. Donut is a simpler spelling, so it may grow even more common now that it has a foothold.
Whatever your take is on the spelling here is the recipe for this gorgeous all natural plant based Galaxy Donut. Make, Bake and Enjoy!
Makes 6 -
1 Cup Gluten Free Flour (I used woollies Free From Gluten flour) 2 Tablespoon Sweet potato flour 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder ¼ Cup Maple syrup ¼ Teaspoon Salt ½ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk + ½ Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
(allow to sit for a few minutes to form a "buttermilk") 3 Tablespoons Rice bran oil 2 Teaspoon of Orgran** egg replacer + 2 Tablespoon Water or 1 Egg
Gorgeous colourful Galaxy Donut
1 Cups Organic Powdered Sugar 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk 1 Tablespoon of MY BLUE TEA - Purple Sweet Potato Powder 1/4 teaspoon of MY BLUE TEA - Butterfly Pea Powder + A few drops clear alcohol
of your choice (to make blue food colouring without the grain of the powder)
GALAXY DONUTS :
400ml coconut cream ⅓ cup shredded coconut 5-6 TBSP sugar or honey 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Natural food colouring –
1/4 teaspoon - MY BLUE TEA - Blue Butterfly Pea Powder and
1/4 teaspoon - MY BLUE TEA - Roselle Powder
(1) Preheat oven to 180C and prepare a doughnut pan with non-stick baking spray. Set aside.
(2) In a medium bowl, combine flour, sweet potato powder, baking powder and salt. Stir until well combined.
(3) In a small bowl, whisk together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar mixture and the egg replacer/ egg until well combined. Slowly pour in rice bran oil and whisk until the mixture is smoothed.
(4) Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until a smooth batter forms.
(5) Carefully spoon the batter into the doughnut pan. There should be enough batter for six doughnuts.
(6) Bake at 180C for 15 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
(7) Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
(8) While the doughnuts are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar, almond milk and purple sweet potato powder to make the glaze. It will take a bit of mixing to dissolve the powdered sugar.
(9) Keep mixing until a drippy glaze forms. Gently stir in blue powder into alcohol (I used gin) until desired shade of blue is reached. Strain any remaining lumps to prevent graininess.
(10) Carefully dip each doughnut into the glaze and return to the rack/ baking paper. Sprinkle food safe glitter if desired.
