To good health and abundant light,
PS. The doughnut recipe. You didn't think I'd forget the doughnut recipe, did you?
This is not the original recipe of the picture I posted a few weeks ago. I did manage to get that recipe, but unfortunately we found ourselves in an egg shortage, on the single day of the year that all stores are closed. The gas station convenience store was open, but they don't carry organic eggs.
I went online to find a recipe for vegan doughnuts. Master chef Levik thought doughnuts without eggs wouldn't work, but offered to experiment. I found a recipe and turned out we had no yeast either...
Levik adapted and came up with this. These doughnuts were D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. to say the least.
7-8 cups spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup water
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine ingredients. Add flour as needed to get a working dough.
Deep fry according to your favorite method.
The glaze was a combination of cocoa powder, cocoa butter, coconut oil and agave.
