Chocolate Donuts:

  • 1 cup pastry flour 130g (All Purpose is fine too)
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 4 tbsp Cocoa Powder 20g
  • ½ tsp Instant Espresso
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ cup Sugar 100g
  • ½ cup water 120g
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 6 tbsp Vegetable Oil 90g

For Rose Glaze:

  • 1 ¼ cups Powdered Sugar 160
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp Vegan Butter 60g, melted
  • 1 tbsp Water 30g
  • 1/2 tsp Rose Extract

For Chocolate Icing:

  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar !25g
  • 2 Tbsp vegan butter or other Vegan Butter, melted (25g)
  • 2 Tbsp Water 20g
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder 20g
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat your oven to 175C/350F. Lightly spray a 6 cavity regular sized donut tray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Sieve Pastry Flour, Baking Soda, Cocoa Powder, Espresso, Salt and Sugar into a mixing bowl.
  • Add water, Vanilla Extract and Vegetable Oil.
  • Whisk until combined - you should have a thick chocolate batter.
  • Dispense batter equally into your donut tray - you can use a piping bag to make it faster and easier.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until Donuts are springy to the touch and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and leave donuts in the tray for 10-15 minutes. Once slightly cooled, tip them out of the donut tray. Let cool thoroughly.
  • To prepare icing, mix Icing sugar, Salt and Rose Extract in a bowl with melted Vegan Butter and water. Whisk till smooth. If it is too thick, add a touch more water. If it is too watery, add a little bit more icing sugar.
  • Dip your donuts in to ice them. You can double dip for a thicker coating of glaze. Allow to set on a cooling tray.
  • Alternatively, use recipe for Chocolate Glaze by combining all ingredients and whisking till smooth.
  • Enjoy donuts immediately. Leftovers can be stored in an air-tight container in room temperature for up to 2 days.
