I made these donuts for what was supposed to be a special occasion – the first predicted snowfall of the season.

But while the entire northeastern United States was blanketed with soft and powdery snow, those of us in the nation’s capital ended up just getting rain.

Safe and warm inside my apartment, with donuts in hand, I watched as the rain fell slowly down the window. Who needs snow anyway, when you can have donuts???

Total Time 8 minutes
Yield 18 – 20 mini donuts

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp oil (or banana, applesauce, or almond butter for oil-free)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup spelt, white, or oat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or xylitol for sugar-free)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar or sugar-free powdered sugar

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the first four ingredients. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a mini (or regular) donut pan or mini muffin tin. In a large bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except the powdered sugar, and stir well. Pour wet into dry, stir until just evenly mixed, and immediately pour into the donut pan. Bake 8 minutes, then allow to cool completely before removing from the trays. Pour the powdered sugar into a deep bowl, then either dip the doughnuts into the bowl or simply sprinkle powdered sugar over the tops.

  1. Delilah Jane😽 says

    Hi! I’m a diabetic and I was wondering of you can substitute the flour for almond flour. Also, you can use Stevie confectioners sugar? Since I know that confectioners and powered is the same thing.

  2. Kim Yuzon says

    The real test will be if the kids eat them. My batter was quite thick. I didn’t know if this was right. But they baked up fine. I used whole grain spelt and caster sugar. They turned out a bit too “healthy” tasting to me. A little like a pancake flavor. But with a good smothering of powdered sugar or chocolate dip, I’m sure these will be a hit.

  3. Cathy Richards says

    I used almond flour and it didn’t work :-(. I have little “wells” where they fell in and also didn’t cook in 8 minutes 🙁

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Hi Cathy, unfortunately almond flour isn’t listed as an option here. If a certain flour isn’t listed in a recipe as an option, it either means it won’t work or that we haven’t tried it so can’t say what the results might be with that substitution.

  4. Valerie says

    I tried this recipe and I used almond milk, almond flour and zylitol. The batter actually disappeared and there was no dough left. What was in the bottom was still raw and the top edge was burned. I use almond flour and milk all the time but never had my batter disappear like this, what did I do wrong 😫

    Hi, wondering what brand/kind of mini donut pan Katie uses – I am looking for an affordable option – these are so cute! Thanks!

    • CCK Media Team says

      For a mini donut pan, we like this one because it gives you two pans for the price of one (and many donut recipes give you enough batter to fill up more than 12 mini donuts worth, so it’s good to have two pans). https://amzn.to/2JxlnJZ

  6. Diane says

    I like the taste of these donuts but found the batter to be a bit too runny which made them seem undercooked when they were done.

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi Diane, what specific ingredients did you use? And is your oven calibrated? If not, yours might just need more baking time!

  7. Katie T says

    Hi Katie, I’ve been a reader for a few years now and I just wanted to let you know how much these make my day. You make food fun for me and that’s been a challenge for most of my life. Thank you <3 you really make such a difference.
