Créme brûlée donuts

Recipe Gallery Share the Love Recipe 0 Prep Time 0 Cook Time Serves 4 4 – 6 People Difficulty  0 Beginner 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 plant-milk 2 tsp nutritional yeast Vanilla Coconut filling 400ml coconut cream 3 tbsp cornstarch 1 tsp vanilla extract Pinch of salt Brûlée sugar  1 cup sugar granulated 1/4 cup water Method For the vanilla custard filling: Whisk ingredients well together and heat on medium heat until thickened, place in the fridge to chill, place in a piping bag with a round nozzle, and pipe the donuts. Donuts  Heat the plant milk until lukewarm and then add the active yeast, and leave to bubble for a few minutes. Sift together the two flour, sugar, potato egg, vanilla seeds, and salt together. 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 homogenous. Place in a bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave to rise for 30-60 minutes until double in size. Once risen, wrap up in cling wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, divide the dough and save the rest to make cinnamon knots, roll the dough out 1 1/2 cm on a floured surface and press out round shapes with a cookie cutter, or a wide-rim glass. Place the donuts on a floured baking tray, leave to rise until doubled and then once risen. Heat about 500ml of canola or any other flavorless oil, add the donuts once the oil is heated to frying temperature (test with a piece of dough, it should rise to the top while frying), and fry the donuts 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Once brown on both sides, scoop out with a slotted spoon, on paper towels. Once cooled press in a hole with the tip of the frosting pipe you’re going to use for the vanilla coconut cream, or make use of a straw. Brûlée Sugar topping Here you can sprinkle on the sugar and caramelise with a blow torch, or make caramel and dip the donuts. Add the sugar and water for the caramel (brûlée) to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the mixture starts bubbling, reduce the heat to medium. Heat the sugar, giving the pan a gentle swirl occasionally, until it turns golden. Take the pan off the heat and swirl the pan until the color deepens slightly. Working very carefully, dip the top of each donut into the caramel. Wear a glove for extra protection on your hands. Lift the donut from the caramel and tilt it, away from your fingers, to let the excess drip for a few seconds, then place the donut aside to let it cool. Repeat with the remaining donuts. If you find the caramel in the pot is getting too stiff, return it to the heat, swirling the pan, until it warms up and becomes less viscous.   Photo Gallery Hope you love these amazing donuts!! M*

Double chocolate hot cross buns

Recipe Gallery Share the Love Recipe 0 Prep Time 0 Cook Time Serves 6 4 – 6 People Difficulty  0 Beginner Ingredients 1 1/2 cups coconut milk 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast 4 1/2 cups flour bread flour or all-purpose flour 1/4 cup cacao powder  1/2 cup soft brown sugar, divided 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips  2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/2 cup vegan butter or margarine, room temperature Flour piped cross: 1/2 cup all-purpose or bread flour 1/2 cup water Hot cross bun bread wash: 1 1/2 tbsp melted vegan butter 1 tbsp golden syrup 11/2 tsp ground cinnamon  extra chocolate chips  Method Measure and weigh out all ingredients before beginning.  Heat the coconut milk to lukewarm, then, stir in the 2 tbsp of the brown sugar with 1 tsp of flour. Add the yeast stir with a wooden spoon and cover. Place the bowl in a warm area to activate for 10-12 minutes. Add the remaining flour, plus the remaining brown sugar, cacao powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate chips to a large bowl.  Gently mix the ingredients for a minute, and use your hand to knead the dough until it comes together, the dough will look shaggy. (here you can make use of a stand mixer with a dough hook)  Then, add in the room temperature vegan butter, and mix until the butter is incorporated into the dough, knead until you have a smooth dough.  Place the dough ball into a large greased bowl, and cover with a clean dish towel. Place the bowl in a warm area. Proof the bread until it’s doubled in size, about an hour. While the dough is rising, you can grease a medium baking dish with cooking oil, or leftover vegan butter. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down lightly and gently pull the dough from the bowl onto a floured surface. Use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, to divide the dough into 12-16 even pieces. To form round rolls, gently roll a dough ball in between your palms. Then pinch the bottom of the dinner roll together to create a more round top, and place the buns in the baking dish when done. Cover the dinner rolls with a thin clean dish towel place in a warm area and let them double in size again. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius. For the cross topping: Mix the flour and water in a small bowl. If you find the mixture is too runny to be piped, stir in another tablespoon or two of flour. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag or ziplock bag, and snip the end of the piping bag. Pipe one long line over a row of rolls, and repeat until every bun has a cross on it.  Once the oven is preheated, place the vegan hot cross buns into the oven to bake for 23-28 minutes until golden. Glaze: Mix the tablespoon of melted vegan butter, golden syrup, and cinnamon, for the bread wash. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush the mixture over the tops of the rolls. Add a few more chocolate chips on top.  Allow them to cool slightly, and serve warm with vegan butter. Store any leftover rolls in an airtight container or freeze.  Photo Gallery Hope you love these super fluffy buns!! M*

Turn out dough on a well-floured work surface. (It will be very loose.) Incorporating as little flour from the surface into the dough as possible, shape it into a taut ball by folding edges toward the middle and repeating until it begins to develop structure and hold its shape, 12 to 16 times. Turn the dough seam side down on a clean (not floured) work surface. Cut out some hearts on parchment paper, place the sheet on the bread (brush the top with coconut oil), and sprinkle the top with beet or berry powder or corn flour.  Preheat oven to 230 degrees Celsius, place a cast-iron Dutch oven with a lid in oven to preheat about 20 minutes.
