For the donuts:

  • 1 cup white spelt flour or all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 2 Tablespoons strawberry juice I pressed 3 fresh strawberries through a fine mesh strainer to extract the juice
  • ½ teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup vegan buttery spread melted

For the frosting:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  3. Add te melted buttery spread, non-dairy milk, strawberry juice, vanilla, unsweetened applesauce, and vinegar, and mix.

  4. Spoon the batter into the donut pan. Smooth out the top of each donut.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
  6. Let cool for a few minutes, then turn the pan over to let the donuts fall out onto a cookie sheet or parchment paper. You may have to tap on the bottom f the pan to get them to pop out.
  7. Let the donuts cool completely before frosting.
  8. To make the frosting: Beat the buttery spread to soften, then add half of the powdered sugar a little at a time. Drizzle in the non-dairy milk, continue beating. Add the rest of the powdered sugar, and continue to beat until smooth and creamy.

  9. Frost the cooled donuts, then top with chopped strawberries.
  10. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Store leftover donuts in a covered container in the refrigerator for one day. If you know you are going to store them, keep the strawberry topping separate and add before serving.

You can use spelt flour or all-purpose flour, or whole wheat flour.

I have not tried this recipe with gluten free flour. If you try it, let me know!
