Lemon Baked Donuts [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine
  • 8 1/2-ounces icing sugar (for the glaze)
  • 1/4 cup soy milk (for the glaze)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (for the glaze)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, mix sugar and lemon zest with your fingers, releasing all the oils from the zest. Then add all other dry ingredients with a whisk to mix thoroughly.
  3. Combine the wet ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and mix until the margarine is just melted. This mixture should be just slightly warm to the touch.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until just combined. It should form a very soft dough.
  5. Using a tablespoon or a piping bag, transfer the dough into a lightly greased nonstick doughnut pan. Smooth out the top of each dough with your fingers.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes. They should not be browned on top, but a toothpick will come out clean.
  7. Invert the hot pan over a cutting board or cooling rack to release the doughnuts. Allow cooling completely before decorating.
  8. Combine the glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat. Whisk until the glaze is smooth. Remove from heat and immediately begin dunking the donuts, one by one, into the lemon glaze.
