Cooking Time



For the Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • A dash of cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt

For the Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon strawberry extract/flavoring
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • A handful of fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1 serving of egg replacer

For the Jam Icing:

  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon of strawberry flavoring or extract
  • Pink food coloring (optional)


To Make the Doughnuts:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 335°F and lightly grease doughnut tins with oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, desiccated coconut, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into a large saucepan over a low heat and stir until the butter has fully melted.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and add in the chopped strawberries. Mix until fully combined and dough-like.
  5. Pop the trays into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Make sure they don't burn on top. You will know they are done when you put a knife or skewer in and it comes out clean.
  6. Place the doughnuts onto a cooling rack and to cool fully before icing.

To Make the Jam Icing:

  1. Cream the butter in a bowl on a low speed until creamy.
  2. When the butter is smooth, creamy, and light in color, carefully sift in the icing sugar and drizzle in the strawberry flavoring or extract.
  3. Whizz together until fluffy and fully combined.
  4. At this stage you can add in the food coloring to make your frosting pop. Apply frosting on doughnuts as desired.
