We have had the cronut (a croissant and a doughnut hybrid) they have been done to death and have thankfully passed on patisserie heaven.
So I bring you the Doughnie, a brownie and doughnut hybrid, a soft fluffy doughnut crossed with the depth and decadence of a chocolate brownie.
A Living Dead Cakes exclusive creation.
I love brownies & I love doughnuts and since being gluten free I have missed doughnuts, sadly you can’t walk into Tesco and buy gluten free doughnuts. Even though some doughnuts can be vegan (I think some co-op ones are) they are sadly not gluten free.
I wanted to make something that combined the two.
I have another vegan/gluten free doughnut recipe that’s more traditional I will upload that one soon.
For the dough:
- 300g Gluten Free self raising flour
- 35g Cocoa powder
- 2 Tsp baking powder
- 40g Dairy free butter, melted
- 120g sugar
- 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 3 Tbsp water)
- 120ml Almond milk
For the glaze:
- 120g icing sugar
- 25ml Almond milk
For the dough:
- In a bowl sift together all your dry ingredients and place to one side
- In another bowl add your melted butter and sugar and beat well together add your flax seed and mix until well combine
- Now add half your dry ingredients and half the milk and mix, once combined add the the rest of the milk and dry ingredients and beat until you have a smooth dough
- This dough needs to chill for as long as you can allow it, an hour at least more if you can. Over night would be perfect.
- Once chilled roll your dough out to approx. 1/2” thick and cut out your doughnies, I made mine mini using 2 little round cutters, you can make them any size you like.
- Heat your oil too (350°F/180°C) and fry your doughnies, my minis ones took about 60 seconds to cook, if your doughnies are bigger then will take a few minutes on each side.
- Once they are cooked drain on kitchen paper to remove excess oil and either dip in the glaze or roll in sugar.
To make the glaze:
- Mix the icing sugar and almond milk together to form a lovely thick dip able glaze
These little doughnies will keep in an air tight container for a few days if they last that long.
