Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups unbleached or regular all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tsp instant quick-rise yeast
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy beverage, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup stick-style unsalted vegan butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  1. In bowl, whisk together flour, 2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar, yeast, baking powder and salt. In a cup or small bowl, whisk together soy beverage, 1/4 cup (60 mL) warm water, 3 tbsp (45 mL) melted butter and vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into dry mixture until a dough forms.
  2. Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth and similar texture to pizza dough. If dough sticks to board, knead in 1 tbsp (15 mL) flour. Transfer to lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover with plastic wrap, let stand about 1 hr., or until doubled in volume.
  3. Tip the dough onto a board and cut into 24 equal portions (Note: Dividing into equal portions is easiest to do by first cutting the dough in half, then each half into thirds, then each piece into quarters.) Roll each portion into a ball. Make 24 balls. Arrange on 2 parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise 20 to 30 min., until doubled in volume.
  4. Re-melt the remaining butter (if it has solidified); drizzle onto the donut holes. Use hands to turn to coat. Drop donut holes into bowl of cinnamon-sugar. (Note: Don’t be tempted to sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar into the butter bowl because pooled butter can cause clumps in the cinnamon-sugar.) Either wash and dry hands and use hands to turn donut holes to coat. Or shake and roll the bowl to coat. Serve immediately.
Tip:
Alternatively, roll warm donut holes in icing sugar.
Use any leftover cinnamon-sugar on buttered toast.
