Cola doughnuts recipe

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free
I have been so excited to try out a new recipe incorporating cola drink into doughnuts. I know it sounds crazy, but it works!

Fentimans cherry cola is divine and is one of my favourite tasting cola drinks. It contains no artificial sweeteners like Aspartame or Sucralose, colours or preservatives and it works wonders in this recipe.
Read my review of Fentimans here.

This drink replaces the milk that would usually be added add into doughnuts. I am pleasantly surprised with how these turned out, they're delicious! 

Cherry cola combined with chocolate are a match made in heaven.
These doughnuts are extremely moreish and flavoursome enough and can be served at birthdays/special events.

They are a moist, rich and ideal served with some fresh coconut cream. Even writing that is making me hungry! yum!

Preparation- 5 minutes
Baking time- 10-12 minutes
Makes- 12 small doughnuts
Level- Easy

Ingredients for the doughnuts
-250g plain white flour (I use gluten-free)
-65g of light brown caster sugar
-20g of cocoa powder
-1 & 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
-Pinch of salt
-350ml of Fentimans cherry cola
-1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
-100ml of olive oil

Ingredients for the glaze
-150g of icing sugar/powdered sugar
-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
-4 tablespoons of Fentimans cherry cola 

Step 1- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees c and grease a doughnut tin with oil or vegan butter.

Step 2- In a large mixing bowl, add in the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

Mix until combined.
Step 3- Add the cherry cola, vinegar and oil.

Step 4- Add the batter into a piping bag and snip off the tip.

Pipe the mixture into the doughnut tins 3/4 full.
Step 5- Pop the doughnuts into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Make sure they don't burn on-top.
You will know they are done when you put a knife or skewer in and it comes out clean.

Place the doughnuts onto a cooling rack and to cool fully before icing!

To make the glaze

Step 1- Place the sugar, cocoa powder and cola into a bowl and mix until smooth and shiny.
Pop into the fridge to set for 5 minutes.

Step 2- Dip the doughnuts into the glaze and place back on a cooling rack.
This is the time you can decorate your doughnuts with sprinkles, coconut, chocolate.... anything you fancy!

Step 3- Pop the tray into the fridge for 5 minutes, to allow the glaze to set.
Store these yummy doughnuts in a sealed container to keep fresh & delicious! 
Best enjoyed fresh, day of making!!!
