Valentines may be cheesy and after six years of marriage, kids and a very large pregnant belly it’s pretty unexciting, to say the least. This year may not be super spectacular…but you know what it’s a day to celebrate the ones you love and I am pretty down on a day where I can indulge with my faves in my life.

So donut’s hey are a treat beyond no other, especially filled with some kind of filling like caramel, or pastry cream. I wanted to fill these with vegan caramel but they came out so great just rolled in cinnamon sugar. Even glazing them would be utterly amazing, and the creme de la creme is the fact they are vegan. SO here’s where the calories don’t count in my opinion…Cinnamon sugar is a much-loved way of spicing or decorating our sweet treats in SA.

Cinnamon sugar is a much-loved way of spicing or decorating our sweet treats in SA. We add it on to freshly made crepes, rolled up so they become caramelized. Topped on to oats, melkpap , sago pudding and the list go on. It’s literally the cherry on top and such all good rounder to sweet and savory dishes.

Cinnamon brioche heart donuts

Ingredients 

  • 19g active dry yeast
  • 200ml soy milk
  • 40g white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder or 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 200g bread flour
  • 200g all-purpose flour
  • Potato egg (ingredients below)
  • 100g vegan butter or cubed coconut oil
  • 1 L canola oil for frying
  • Cinnamon sugar for dusting

Protein egg

  • 1 tsp potato protein or corn starch
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 1/2 tsp ice-cold water
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast

Method

  1. Heat the plant milk until lukewarm and then add the active yeast, leave to bubble for a few minutes.
  2. Sift together the flours, sugar, potato egg, vanilla seeds, and salt together.
  3. Gradually pour in the bubbly plant milk mix and then once they are mixed gradually add bits of the vegan butter while kneading or using a bread attachment kneading slowly until homogenized.
  4. Place in a bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave to rise for 30-60 minutes until double in size.
  5. Once risen, wrap up in cling wrap and refrigerate overnight.
    The next morning, divide the dough and save the rest to make cinnamon knots, or roll the dough out 1 1/2 cm on a floured surface and press out heart shapes with a cookiecutter.
  6. Place the donuts on a floured baking tray, leave to rise until doubled and then once risen.
  7. Heat about 500ml of canola or any other flavorless oil up, add the donuts once the oil is heated to frying temperature (test with a piece of dough, its rise to the top) and fry the donuts 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  8. Once brown on both sides, scoop out with a slotted spoon, on some paper towels.
  9. Once cooled, roll the donuts in the cinnamon sugar and serve. These stay mostly fresh the day you’ve made it, so serve it quickly.

Hope you love this recipe, I really love this versatile dough and how amazing fluffy and tasty these donuts are!
