Did you get that?
Hey, hey everybody its Lauren Toyota of hot for food
And today I’m super stoked very excited because I’m showing you how to make mini vegan powder donuts
Yes, just like the kind you get at the carnival or the fair in the summer super tasty
Very nostalgic for me, and I’m sure for you as well
Thanks so much to Tefal for sponsoring and collaborating with me on today’s video
It is the Tefal EZ Clean Fryer I’m gonna show you how to use today so that you can deep fry these
tasty little morsels at home
I just think having a fryer like this is essential if you’re gonna be deep-frying quite a bit and you want to deep fry with
Ease, it keeps everything contained. You don’t have to worry about the temperature or having an extra thermometer
It doesn’t splash everywhere and it makes cleanup a breeze
So particularly with the Tefal EZ Clean Fryer
it has an automatic oil filtration system that drains, filters, and stores the oil for future use which means all the oil just
automatically goes down into this bottom container and
You can use your oil multiple times as I’ve mentioned in the past and also in my cookbook
Where I did use a fryer quite a bit and we’re gonna reuse this oil today
We’re gonna start the process again and heat it up to about 365 Fahrenheit to make these mini powdered donuts today
So the first thing for the dough is non-dairy milk and to this you’re going to add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
Let that sit aside then mix together a flax egg so you’ve got ground flax and water
Give it a stir and then set that aside as well and it will thicken in about 10 minutes
And now you want to properly measure two cups of all-purpose flour
So you’re spooning flour into your measuring cup like this
And then leveling it off
Before adding to the bowl
Now add some sugar, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon give this a quick whisk to combine it
So now with your thickened milk and vinegar mixture you can add your flax egg
Some vanilla extract and two tablespoons of melted vegan butter
All right, make a little well in your dry ingredients here and pour the liquid stuff in
And now fold it together until it’s pretty well combined
So you’re gonna get sort of a sticky ball of dough
Once you don’t see any dry ingredients crumbling around you’re gonna turn this ball of dough over onto a floured surface
You’re gonna need a good quarter of a cup of extra flour for this bowl rolling out process
This dough is fairly sticky, but you’re gonna just make sure it’s coated in a bit of extra flour
Now don’t overwork this too much
Just get it into a nice soft ball
Kind of pat it down with your hand you’re going for about an inch to an inch and a quarter thick
Make sure it doesn’t stick
You don’t need to roll it you just kind of want to pat it out
Then take a sort of 2-inch cookie cutter and cut
Out as many circles as you can
Now remove all this excess I’m gonna show you how to make the little hole in the middle
So a couple of things to keep in mind here because there’s baking powder in this and it’s activated right now
You don’t want the stove sitting around for too long
You want to be cutting out donuts, poking holes,
throwing into the fryer, and then continuing to cut out donuts and doing this sort of in a repetitive assembly-line fashion
That way you’re gonna get the freshest sort of doughy as puffiest donuts possible. So this is how I’ve decided to make the holes
I don’t know if there’s a more clever way. I think this is pretty clever. I have a chopstick dust it with flour
Stick it down the center now. It’s not a huge hole. These are mini doughnuts, right so I sort of like
fling the doughnut around like this until there’s a good sized
Little hole in the center. I don’t know if you won’t really see it
But it will be visible. Once they cook now to set that aside. These are all gonna go on the fryer at once
And then we’ll do a second batch
So stick the thing in like this and then kind of fling it around
To get an even hole in the center
The thing you just have to keep in mind when you’re doing this is dusting the chopstick because the dough is sticky
but it’s manageable
I mean I don’t know how they do it at those food trucks, but this is my message
Wooden chopsticks are very handy for many things. So you just hook the basket on the side
place your donuts in the basket
So set the basket in the oil
Place the lid on and set the timer for five minutes. The other great thing about the Tefal Z Clean Fryer
Is that it has precise temperature control as you saw on the dial, so it regulates the temperature throughout the frying process
That means you’re not guessing which can be dangerous
And also no oil is splashing around here with one minute left
Give the doughnuts a little flip with your chopstick to get the bottom the same color golden brown here
You can see they’re nice and poufy and then just let them fry another minute/minute and a half
And now you can lift the basket up and hook it again
Just let them sit there for a second while the excess oil drips back off
Then you can remove the donuts onto a wire rack over top of a baking sheet
So let the donuts sit for just a little bit. They will stay warm because they’re very hot
You just fried them
But you don’t want them too hot when you sugar them because then the sugar gets a little bit too sticky and wet I find
So just let them sit for like I don’t know five to ten minutes here
They will remain warm the temperature valve inside
the fryer is gonna let the oil sit until it’s safe to actually do the filtering and no other fryer on the market has the
Safety feature and then it’s gonna drain into this bottom compartment and then you’re ready to store it for future use
I don’t know about you, but this seems a little too easy
We’re almost done. Okay, so I have like a parchment paper bag. You could use a brown lunch bag
very loud
Open it up dump your sugar in
Alright this is the fun part!
Okay, like if you’re a savage like me you would just eat them out of the bag
Okay, well
Hang on I need to… I’m transporting back in time
I’m five years old. I don’t like roller coasters. So I eat donuts all day instead hahaha
Oh my god, they’re crunchy on the outside moist and cakey on the inside
There’s literally nothing better in life than this
How fun is this you could give everyone their like own little bag of doughnuts it makes kind of big bag but
Mmm, I think we’re getting powder everywhere
Because this is hot for food we have to do a little plating sequence so stand by
How sexy are these mini vegan powdered Donuts
Make sure to check the link in the description below so you can get your own Tefal EZ Clean Fryer as well as the
Recipe for these donuts on hoppy food blog com. All right enough. Yackety-yak
I would like to transport back in time to my childhood and eat these babies once again
These are crazy
They’re uncanny. In fact, they’re better than the ones at the carnival because one of the carnival tastes like
Like they’re really bad for you these kinds don’t really taste it they’re bad for you there’s flax in them
Come on
Gettin’ fiber
Oh my god
Mmm now these have to be shared I can’t get all these
That’d be nuts
All right. Thank you for watching guys
Mmm, follow me @hotforfood. If you make these share a photo, a video, a snap, we’d love to see it
Mmm, I don’t let me know what you think thumbs up to this video
Share it subscribe. I’ll be back next week. I’m here every Wednesday
Cooking up vegan love I’m hot for food and hot for donuts and all the things. Okay. Bye

  1. All these other vegans out here using air fryers, and you keeping it real with that glorious deep fryer.

  2. definitely have to make these for my kids! They love mini doughnuts 🍩

  3. Yay to fried vegan donuts! Ohh I can’t wait to make these with the apple fritters from the cookbook 😍😍😍😍

  4. Looks delicious Lauren! Gonna have to make soon! Thank you for another great video! I always look forward to your videos! Love blue on you too! Love your shirt 💙🌻🍋

  5. Lauren! You could totally use the leftover cap of a water bottle to cut out the doughnut holes! Normally I just use a smaller cookie cutter from my tool kit but since those doughnuts are small I'm sure a deeper set cap would work well! And then add the holes to the other ball to be re rolled out! Or fry the doughnut holes separately! No matter what, it always looks so delicious and I am drooling!

  6. Instead of apple cider vinegar and flax egg could it be replaced by white vinegar and a chia egg?

  7. I love you and all your recipes! You’re the one who inspired me to become a vegan and it was one of the best decisions I ever made! Thank you!!!

  8. Lauren you had me chuckling so mush with the “stick in & kinda fling it around” comment.

  9. These look amazing and I also want to try them with cinnamon and sugar on them. My mom used to get little donuts with cinnamon and sugar on them when I was a kid and I've been wanting to find something that might be similar.

  10. are these warm enough when you put them in the bag that the sugar melts on to them? like a glaze? it looks kind of like they're glazed

  11. A straw would probably be a good hole-maker that doesn't require 'flinging the thing' lol 🙂

  12. I'm imagining making these and shaking then with cinnamon sugar to replicate Cider Mill donuts!!

  13. I love watching these with my boyfriend because he's just as amused by your reactions to your own food as I am. These look awesome, wondering if I can do them baked though, hot oil is scary

  14. you reminded me of a cat when you were sticking your head in the bag hahahaha

  15. Saw the thumbnail and out loud was like, "Oh fuck you Lauren.." I'm so hungry!!!!

  16. the blue paper ribbons dropping. . .. 🎀🎗🤣 .. loving how extra that was 💙

  17. THIS IS THE FRYER OF MY DREAMS! I had to pause this video so I could add this fryer to our wedding registry ☺️

  18. Ho.ly. Shiiizzzz!!! Those look incredible!! Hope you do a "Watch me eat" ep with these on Lauren IRL!!!! Loved when you just yelled "OK, WELL…"

  19. I've had this deep fryer for a few months now and I love it 🙂 Awesome recipe Lauren!

  20. Luv Hot for Food videos back to back to back! Always so excited to see what you're cooking and hear that laugh…it makes my day.

  21. “Stick the thing in and just fling it around” this is why you’re my favorite and why your cookbook is the Bible.

  22. #flingingdonutholes 🤣🙌🏻
    Ps. measuring flour accurately is … annoying. #bakingisnotmyforte lol

  23. Yummmm think I Will make them later today 😍😋 look delicious

  24. This looks delicious, Is there a way to make it gluten free? Any flour substitute recommendation?

  25. Jesus, between the donuts and the deep fryer, I am drooling. That fryer is bad ass and of course, the donuts look fuggin delicious. 🤗

  26. 6:40 meeeeeee 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 love this. Thank you, Lauren!

  27. I just made them and they were amazing Lauren!!! So so so easy and delicious!

  28. been vegan for 3 and a half years and i’m so excited for this lol

  29. It's as if you've read my mind! I just got done saying I was craving mini doughnuts 🤤 it was that darn carnival mini doughnut food truck .. I walked by breathed deeply and haven't gotten rid of the craving for days hahaha! I'm going to buy the Tfal today lol🤦🤭💜 thanks Lauren xx.!!

  30. Is there such a thing as baking donuts or they can only be made in a fryer?

  31. “If you’re a savage like me”, Ohkay I see you
    Lauren 👏🏽

  32. Are you kidding me?! 😭 I'm about to go to bed and now I will have to think about this dreamy stuff?!?!?!?!

  33. I didn't trust myself with really hot oil in fear I'd burn down my kitchen so instead a while ago I bought a donut maker- do you reckon I could use this recipe or would I need to use one which is more of a batter

  34. "i dont like rollercoasters.. so i eat dounuts all the time instead!!!" hahah i love it

  35. Can I make these in a air fryer, I’m one of those vegans lol. This recipe is so easy

  36. How many times can you reuse your oil? I fried some potatos in mine and it already has a smell

  37. Can I use this dough recipe to make regular donuts/filled donuts??

  38. Out of all the sponsorships Lauren has had this is the one I really wanna get.

  39. “Like the ones you can find at summer fair “
    What we don’t have summer fairs here, just the royal Easter show, and that is in March and it’s autumn and it always rains 😂

  40. What can I replace the oil with to make these hclf??

    Love you! Making these for breakfast… 😬

  41. these remind me a lot of the "oliebollen" (fried dough balls) we eat in the netherlands during new year's eve, covered in powdered sugar or filled with things like apples, cherries or with raisins incorporated in the batter. New year's eve is not complete without some oliebollen

  42. I'm supa glad u created these. I been asking sum vegans but Neva got it. Thanks so much Lauren😍😍😍😘😘😘

  43. they look so good! this fryer looks great, I've never owned one, I only fry things once or twice a year, so I don't think it would be worth it for me but if I ever get some cash to throw around that would be a cool toy to have. another huge hit, Lauren!!

  44. My husband would probably forgive me for buying this fryer if I made him mini-donuts in it.. they're one of his top five favourite things.. haha

  45. Omg that fryer looks so simple and perfect. the only reason I almost never deep fry more is because prep and cleanup is such a pain in the ass, so I would love this thing. I'm just afraid I would get very very fat.

  46. Amazingly delicious donuts💣💣💣💣💣💣💣💣💣💣💣🤗

  47. OMG these are good. Kid approved. Just made them. I used egg replacer , and sugar and cinnamon.

  48. Didn’t you have a gluten free version before? I can’t find it anywhere

  49. You're a great presenter, Lauren! I'm thrilled to find this recipe. Thank u.
