I decided to make some doughnuts yesterday for those of you who are celebrating Hanukah this weekend. These are as good if not better than the real doughnuts you get at the seaside, straight from a deep fat fryer! The middle stays perfectly soft while the outside goes all crispy and delicious – especially when you coat it in cinnamon coconut sugar.
- 150g ground almonds
- 50g buckwheat flour
- 35g melted coconut oil + 1 tablespoon for frying
- 7 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Mix all the ingredients except the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and then shape into doughnut shapes.
Heat up the tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
Add the doughnuts to the pan when it is hot and fry for around 4 minutes on each side until they are golden.
Place on a tray in the oven for 10 minutes.
Roll them in the sugar mix and serve warm.
