Panda doughnut holes recipe

Vegan + easy

A light and fluffy vanilla doughnut, rolled in golden sugar, topped with a vanilla glaze and decorated with oreo cookies. How cute are they?!

These doughnuts were inspired by the WWF.

Preparation- 2 hours

Cooking time- 1-2 minutes (Per doughnut)

Makes- Approximately 30 doughnuts

Level- Medium

Ingredients for the doughnuts

-330ml of warm dairy-free milk (I use unsweetened almond)

-2 packs (14g) of dry yeast 

-75g of golden caster sugar

-620g of self-raising flour

-1/4 teaspoon of salt

-100g of melted dairy-free butter

-2 egg replacers (I use Vegan Egg)


-Oreo cookies

-Golden caster sugar

-Icing sugar

-Sunflower oil (for frying)

To make the doughnuts

Step 1- Place the warm dairy-free milk into a bowl and sprinkle over the yeast and sugar. Stir, cover with a tea towel and put into a warm place for around 10-15 minutes until frothy.

Step 2- In a separate bowl, combine the flour & salt and stir.

Step 3- In another separate bowl, add in the melted dairy-free butter and vegan egg substitute.

Step 4- Combine the dry mixture, yeast mixture and egg mixture into a bowl and stir.

Step 5- Mix with a hand whisk or attach a dough hook to your stand mixer and begin to knead on medium until nice and smooth.

Step 6- Pop the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and place into a warm area (I placed mine in my warm conservatory) and allow to prove for around 2-3 hours or until doubled in size.

Step 7- Once doubled, turn out the dough and roll around 45g of dough into balls and place them onto a lined baking tray.

Step 8- Place the doughnut balls back into a warm area covered with a tea towel for around 1 hour until they have doubled in size.

Step 9- Add oil into a deep pan until half – 3/4 full and bring to the boil.

Allow it to come up to 320 degrees.

Step 10- Once the doughnuts have risen, gently lower them into the hot oil and fry for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until puffed and golden brown in colour.

 Carefully take them out of the hot oil and place them onto kitchen paper towels to drain any excess oil.

Allow them to cool before filling and decorating.

To decorate

Step 1- Place icing sugar into a bowl and add in enough water to make a thick paste.

Step 2- Dip the doughnut holes into the icing and while the icing is still wet, chop up some oreo cookies to make the ears, eyes, and nose and add them on.

I added a dot of icing to each eye for added effect.

Serve fresh and enjoy.

Store in a sealed container.

Best enjoyed day of making.
