Baked Doughnut Nuggets

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegan butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg substitute (I use 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water)
2/3 cup nondairy milk (I use soy) Topping:
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For donuts, combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in medium mixing bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, whip butter and vegan sugar until light and fluffy. Beat flax and water together for egg, and let sit 1-2 minutes.
3. Add egg substitute to butter mixture, and beat until well-blended. Add 1/2 the flour mixture, mix; stir until smooth. Add 1/2 the milk; stir again until smooth. Repeat.
4. Spoon batter into miniature muffin tins until 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before removing.
5. For topping, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar and cinnamon. Roll nuggets in sugar mix, and enjoy!

;D mmm! these were sooo good! i did half powdered and half chocolate! they tasted just like i remember doughnuts tasting!


Yum! I was a dork and made these "healthy" by using all whole-wheat flour (but still used all the margarine so I guess that cancels out some of the the healthiness, hee hee). I also used applesauce for the egg replacer and added a teaspoon of cinnamon. I baked them in a muffin pan that had these rods in the cups to make holes in big muffins - why people would want holes in their muffins is a mystery to me, but it turned out useful in making these donut-shaped! It yielded about five donuts so next time I'll double the recipe. They were very moist and just sweet enough to be yummy but not taste like dessert, which is good because I don't like too much sweet for breakfast. Half of a donut will go great with some cereal and an orange. Great recipe!


very good


I made plain and chocolate.  For the chocolate...I decrease the flour to 1-1/4 cups and added a scant 1/3 cup of cocoa powder, Hershey's dark to be exact.  THEY WERE WONDERFUL!!!  I didn't glaze them, they were so good straight up. The kids agreed and these are becoming a staple weekend treat around here.


i made these into regular-sized muffins ..i might try putting some cinnamon and powdered sugar on one to see if it tastes better. they don't taste bad but i don't necessarily like nutmeg on it's own. and it doesnt really taste like a donut for me..

i've been having a donut craving for months and i was hoping these would help that but they just taste like nutmeg muffins to me, even when i put just powdered sugar on one


Oh my!  These are soooo good.  I've been having doughnut cravings for weeks now and no place to buy decent donuts anywhere near where we live.

These turned out lovely.  I didn't have eggs or any of the items used for an egg replacer so I just used 3 tbsp of water instead.  It was a guess but nevertheless it worked out just fine.

Instead of using regular sugar with cinnamon to dust them, I use icing sugar (powdered sugar) plus cinnamon and it's much better, I find.

Finally ... my doughnut craving is satisfied.



OH MY GOD THESE ARE SOOOOO AMAZING!!!!!!! I have been craving doughnuts for so long, and these were the answer to my prayers!!!!!!  I made them with the Energy Egg Replacer stuff, and I made a chocolate glaze with icing sugar, soymilk, cocopowder and a little vanilla extract.  Yey!!! I'm so happy!!!


I cut the flour by 1/4 cup and added 1/3 cup of dark chocolate cocoa.  They were very very nice!  I particularly miss chccolate doughnuts, so these were perfect.


I made these into little quarter size doughnut pieces, and coated with a chocolate glaze for a brunch get together with friends. They seem to loved it, however no one thought they were doughnuts. Everyone thought it was cookie cakes. Personally, I thought it tasted OK, something just seem to be missing. I've had vegan doughnuts before from a vegan bakery and these taste nothing like it. However, I would probably make them again for parties/gathering because it's quick, fast, easy, and all the ingredients are everyday pantry items. If people ask what they are I'll tell them "mini cakes".
