Good Golly, Miss Molly – – I’ve finally found a solution to my Vegan doughnut woes. Insert happy-face emoji!
Until recently, it had been almost 4 years since I’ve had the pleasure of sinking my teeth into an old favorite – Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts. And even after four years of being in doughnut abyss, I still couldn’t shake the desire. To add insult to injury, my house is located near a Krispy Kreme Doughnut Shop. I know, I know… that’s like standing outside the pearly gates but never being invited inside, right?
Just like any stalker, I drive by slowly, eagerly peeking inside to gaze at rows and rows of perfectly placed pillowy treats and painstakingly aware that not one Vegan doughnut lives within its walls. Nada!
My love – – scratch that, my addiction to these light, sweet, heavenly, edible pillows dates back several decades.
Apparently, my parents are to blame. They were my “doughnut dealers” when I was a kid because I can distinctly remember them bringing home warm, freshly baked Krispy Kreme doughnuts at least twice a month. I was a sucker for the plain, glazed doughnut and my dad, the Doughnut Kingpin himself, favored the jelly or lemon-filled doughnut. It was a Southern tradition that never left my soul.
For the last few years, I’ve been thinking (actually obsessing is the more accurate term) about how I could create a Vegan doughnut recipe option that would extinguish my doughnut drought and even impress an omnivore.
That’s all behind me now. I’ve reworked and played around with several Vegan doughnut recipes to make Vegan doughnuts and Vegan glaze options that are not only delish, but will surely impress Mom on Mother’s Day.
EP4L’s Vegan Doughnuts are here and just in time for Mom’s special day. As a Vegan breakfast option, they pair well with a morning cup of coffee, making this the perfect way to start Mother’s Day!
EP4L’s Vegan Doughnuts are like biting into little, fluffy pillows. With a crispy shell and slightly chewy middle, the dough can be prepared, then refrigerated overnight as the dough rises. The next morning, they fry up in seconds.
Surprise her with breakfast in bed and a plate of Vegan Chocolate-glazed, Vegan Lemon-glazed, or Vegan Maple-Pecan glazed doughnuts. Top them with her favorite toasted nuts, fresh berries and powdered sugar, freeze-dried strawberries, Vegan coconut flakes, granola, or crushed Oreo cookies.
She’ll be impressed.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms that continue to impress us with the thankless job of being the glue of the family like the critical glaze to the doughnut. Enjoy!
