It's a weekend afternoon. You reach for a snack, and you realise you're all out. What's a hungry person to do? Why whip up a batch of chocolate doughnuts of course! This moreish snack-tastic vegan recipe is brought to you from baking whizz Zoe via Pies and Tacos, and features chocolate, coffee and truffles. In short: a real treat.

Makes 12 doughnuts, and takes around 45 mins.


  1. Pre-heat the oven at 180°C and lightly grease two doughnut pans.

  2. To a large mixing bowl, add the milk, coffee, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract and whisk together.

  3. Add the sugar and whisk to combine.

  4. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder, and whisk until smooth. The mixture should be smooth and more pourable than scoopable.

  5. Divide the batter evenly between doughnuts, filling all the way full. You can either do this with a spoon or a piping bag – although the latter is far less messy!

  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  7. Remove the doughnuts from the oven and let them cool before removing them from the doughnut tin.


For the glaze:

  1. Once cooled, dunk each doughnut into the glaze (this can get quite messy!).

  2. Allow the doughnuts to sit for 10-12 minutes or until the glaze has set, then top with whatever toppings you desire.

  3. Enjoy!
