Two for the price of one, with this baked doughnuts recipe I am spoiling you! I’ve been wanting to make doughnuts for a while since getting my new Lakeland Baked Doughnut Moulds in the winter sale (update: sadly these are no longer produced but I’ve added an alternative product here* and other suitable products below). I’m a bit like a kiddie in a sweetie shop at the moment because I cannot physically keep up with my mind racing at what I can choose to make yet verses the hours I have in the day to do it, I have THE BIGGEST to-do-list imaginable and a Pinterest wall that’s fit to burst, one board is called Not GF…Yet! It’s exactly that, not gluten free just yet but one day by-Jove it will be!
How times do change – egg free baked doughnut recipe now needed!
this is my original text for this post;
I don’t like to pinch people’s idea and not give credit, it’s not my style so this idea was inspired by Paula’s Baked Vanilla Donut recipe at Call Me PMC but it was neither gluten nor dairy free. I decided on this occasion not to go the whole hog and go egg free too but if you comment below to indicate you’d be interested in an egg free version, I’ll give it a fair old crack of the whip.
Oh bless my cotton socks, I DO need an egg free version now so this recipe has been updated and I’m pleased to report the taste and texture is practically the same. At this time I’d like to point out that I do still have this baked doughnut recipe on the website that does have egg in it if you’d prefer; Easy Gluten Free Ring Doughnuts.

Vegan Baked Doughnuts
- 100 g gluten free plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp psyllium husk powder (optional) you can use xanthan gum instead
- 50 g caster sugar
- 100 g dairy free yogurt I used Alpro Soya yogurt
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 3 tbsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the glaze topping:
- 25 g dairy free ‘milk’ chocolate melted
- 4 tbsp icing/confectioners sugar
- 1 tbsp dairy free milk I used soya milk
For the jammy doughnut:
- 3 tbsp jam
- 1 tsp water
- Preheat the oven to 180°C | 160°C Fan | 350°F | Gas 4.
- I like the one bowl no faffing method so simply pop all your ingredients into the mixing bowl and combine until to achieve a smooth batter.
- Getting the mixture into the moulds can be a bit fiddly so to make things simple why not put the mixture into a piping bag, this is especially easier if you're making the ring doughnut version.
- Fill each mould 3/4 full.
- Pop into the oven for 15 minutes (only 10 mins if using smaller moulds).
- Once baked (the doughnut will have a light spring to the touch when ready) remove and cool in mould for 5mins before turning out onto cooling rack.
- When completely cool make your glaze and leave to set
To make jam filled doughnuts
- If making jam doughnuts make a hole in the side of the doughnut (I use a skewer and wiggle it about a bit) then using a piping bag with a thin round nozzle, pipe the jam into the doughnut – bit fiddly this, but have patience!
- Now you can decorate your doughnuts as you see fit, glazed, dusted in icing sugar or caster sugar.
