Any tea lovers will find this recipe pleasing, especially the aromatic smell of chai spice. Prep time: 10 mins | Cook time: 25 mins | Total time: 35 mins Ingredients ¾ cup chai tea or water 2 cups all-purpose flour ¾ cup vegan sugar 1 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. chai spice ¼ tsp. kosher salt 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar 1 tsp. vanilla extract -- Glaze -- 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk) 2 cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 3/4 tsp. chai spice Instructions In a large bowl, whisk together the flour through and including the salt for the doughnuts. Make a well in the center with a large spoon. In a small bowl, whisk together the tea or water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Pour into the dry well, while stirring. Stir until just combined. Bake at 375 F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for a minute. Then, run a butter knife blade around the doughnut to loosen it from the pan. Tip the pan upside-down to remove the doughnuts. Place them on a wire cooling rack. Repeat with remaining batter. Once the second batch of donuts is done baking and has cooled for about 5 minutes, it’s time to make the glaze. Whisk together the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat for several minutes until runny. Then, immediately dip the doughnuts face-first into the glaze one by one and set back on the cooling rack. Then repeat again for a second glaze dip. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if you like and allow to dry on the rack. It will take a few hours for the glaze to set and be somewhat hard.
Coincidence that I just found a recipe for homemade chai? I think not!
That glaze sounds like absolute heaven, I need to get myself a doughnut mold!
These sound delicious! I love the complex flavor of chai and these sound like a perfect little taste of that!
