There’s much debate between Australians as to whether a lamington should contain jam or not. My focus for these donuts is on taste, not tradition. I mean, what’s not to love about the combination of tart raspberry jam, chocolate, and coconut.

Imagine a fresh, fluffy, perfectly cooked doughnut hole, filled with still warm raspberry jam and dipped in a rich vegan chocolate glaze, then tossed in shredded coconut. Trsut me, these are seriously good.

I give you two options here! I know that not everyone has a donut baking tray, so you will be happy to lear that a mini muffin tray or a mini bundt cake tin can be used instead. Maybe even a cake pop tin. You can make these Glutenfree by using my Glutenfree Vegan Vanilla donuts recipe

Ingredients

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (236.59 ml) Non-Dairy Milk such as almond milk, soy milk or oat milk
  • 3 tbsp Non-Dairy yogurt or apple sauce
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or any other vinegar
  • 1/3 cup (66.67 g) sugar 2 tbsp more for sweeter
  • 1/4 cup (59.15 ml) oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (170 g) raspberry preserves

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (250 g) flour , I use all purpose
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt

Chocolate Coating:

  • 3/4 cup (90 g) vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp (29.57 ml) oat milk or other non dairy milk
  • 2 tsp refined coconut oil
  • 1 cup (80 g) shredded coconut (dessicated) use the small shredded one, if your shreds are too large, then you can pulse them in a blender to reduce the size.

Instructions

  • In a bowl, whisk 1 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt.

  • In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients except preserves until the sugar is fully combined

  • Fold the dry into the wet until about combined, add more flour one tbsp at a time until you get just a slightly thick batter. Slightly thicker than pancake batter. You might not need all the flour

  • Grease your donut pan, or a mini muffin pan really well, or use  mini liners, and use those. Warm the preserves in microwave or heat in a saucepan.

  • Scoop some of the batter into the pan, then add in 1/2 -1 tsp of softened preserves. Then scoop some more batter on top of the preserves.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-13 minutes for the mini muffins, and 14-15 minutes for regular sized donuts.

  • Remove the pans from the oven, and let the pan cool for 15 minutes before trying to remove the donuts from the pan.

  • To remove muffin liners from the muffins if they’re too stuck, you can moisten the outside of the muffin liner with some water.  take a bowl of water, and dip just the muffin liner in the water, and let it sit for a minute, then try to remove it, it comes off really easily.

  • Prep your chocolate coating by melting the chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler, and add in the non dairy milk, coconut oil, whisk well until really smooth.

  • Put the coconut into another shallow bowl.

  • Take one mini muffin or donut at a time, and dip in the chocolate, then roll in the coconut mixture and set it on a wire rack. Repeat for all of the muffins or donuts, and serve!

Vegan Donut Holes Tips:

  • Do not overbake the donuts as you want them to be soft and moist
  • To serve after being refrigerated, warm them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften the chocolate and moisten the donuts
  •  As for the coconut coating, I recommend you use the small shredded one, if your shreds are too large, then you can pulse them in a blender to reduce the size.
  • When coating the doughnuts, use one hand to roll in the chocolate ganache and the other to roll in the coconut. This avoids a messy finish.
  • Don’t overdo the mixing! Over-mixing  the batter causes more gluten formation resulting in tougher, more dense baked vegan donut holes.
