Assorted Vegan Cake Style Donuts

This recipe for Vegan Donuts is ready in less than 20 minutes!

No joke!

All you need is a donut pan and a bowl to whisk everything up in!

I have always loved cake style donuts more than a fried yeast donut, but if you prefer the fried donuts variety I have recipes for Boston Creme and Cookies & Cream stuffed!

Complete with homemade Vegan Sprinkles for a festive and fun little treat!
