Delicious Chocolate Homemade Vegan Donuts

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Cook Time: 20 Minutes

Who doesn’t like donuts? They are perfect as a dessert or a breakfast treat. But many of us think that they are difficult and time consuming to prepare. Not true! I'm here to share a simple vegan chocolate donut recipe that you can have ready in no time. So go ahead. Treat your family and friends with these delicious, warm, homemade chocolate donuts. The best part about this recipe is that the ingredients used are often readily available at home or easy to find at any grocery store. Let's get started.

For the donuts:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of water
  • ½ cup of vegetable oil
  • Pinch of salt to taste

For the cream:

  • 3 tablespoons of almond milk
  •  ½ teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of sugar powder


  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a bowl, and combine flour, sugar, vegetable oil, baking powder, and cocoa powder.
  • Step 2: Now add the water, salt and vanilla extract to the mix. Stir well for about 5 minutes. Make sure that there are no lumps.
  • Step 3: Now take a donut mold or a donut tray and spray it with some oil, so that the mixture doesn’t stick. I personally use a tray.
  • Step 4: Pour your batter into your oiled molds or tray. Let the donuts bake in your preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
  • Step 5: Check them. If the color is golden brown, they're ready.
  • Step 6: Now to prepare the cream-- In a bowl and combine the almond milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sugar. 
  • Step 7: Once the cream is thick and smooth, it's ready. Spread the cream over your slightly cooled donuts.

Feel free to add some chocolate chips or other toppings to give the donuts a fantastic look and flavor. You can store these in the refrigerator for freshness and have them whenever you like. Bon appetite!

    Trust me, I've been baking for 40 years: This is a terrible recipe; it has several obvious problems. First clue: don't make a recipe from someone who says to bake something at 400 Celsius. That temp doesn't exist on any oven (that is 750 F). Plenty of good recipes online.

      Thanks for taking the time to read the recipe Andrea, you're absolutely right! It should be 350 F, my mistake. I was having a bad day and thought that sharing this recipe would make me happy. So in a hurry I switched things up. But it's totally my fault and I'll keep this in mind. Thanks once again, it is really appreciated :)

    Is this recipe a joke? It looked off from the start but I decided to give it a shot anyway. I mixed it up, following the directions exactly, and it turned out to be a goopey, oily mess. I didn't even bother baking it. Gross.
