When I was pregnant with baby J in 2012, I craved doughnuts from a local bakery in my hometown. The problem? My hometown was a seven hour drive and they weren’t vegan.
I have ways had a soft spot for doughnuts, so when I saw this recipe in Home-Cooked Vegan Comfort Food I was really excited to try it out. But let me tell you, this was one long process, so only attempt this if you have a free day and a babysitter, because it will take you all day.
These are pretty good, but they’re not what I think of when I think of doughnut holes. B made the comment that it reminded him of adult monkey bread. They were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, almost like a biscuit. The bottom layer of cinnamon sugar got hard and crunchy and the top layer sprinkled everywhere when you took a bite of the doughnut hole. It was a pretty good recipe, but it took a long time and in the end it didn’t satisfy my doughnut craving.
