  • ⅓ cup vegan butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Vegan and Gluten Free Pumpkin Spiced Donuts

Directions

  1. Preheat the Oven to 350°F.

  2. In a large-sized bowl combine plant-based milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup or homemade sugar-free syrup, Purecane™ Baking Sweetener, melted vegan butter, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon, mix until well combined. Then, add the flour and mix until a batter forms. Pour the batter into 18 silicone donut molds.

  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the donuts are risen, completely cooked through, and lift easily out of the pan.

  4. Optional: While the donuts are baking, mix the vegan cream cheese icing ingredients. Add more Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener to make the icing thicker.

  5. Wait for the donuts to cool before icing OR ice them while they're warm to create a "glaze effect."

  6. Optional: Garnish with pumpkin seeds

  7. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

You will love the taste of Purecane Baking Sweetener and how similar it browns to sugar. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your Purecane baking experience:

  • Don’t forget to bring your butter to room temperature if you are blending butter with Purecane.
  • Purecane will take a little longer to blend with butter, but it is worth the wait.
  • If you prefer a moister baked result, consider increasing your eggs or the amount of butter you use.
  • For recipes calling for 1 cup or more of PURECANE™ Baking Sweetener, you may wish to add 1/8 teaspoon of salt for a better balanced sweetness.
