While these delicious desserts are the perfect combination of a sweet fried doughnut and a flaky croissant, they are a little time intensive. You will want to make sure you have a day when you will be close to home to whip up a batch of these goodies. These would be perfect for your upcoming fall holiday parties and you can make them vegan too! Read on to get started!
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients
- 1 cup Earth Balance
- 1/2 cup organic dairy-free milk
- 2 tablespoons Earth Balance
- 1 packet of organic dry yeast
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup organic sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cups organic flour
- organic canola oil
- organic powdered sugar
Step 2: Heat it!
Add the dairy-free milk to a medium saucepan or microwave safe bowl, over medium-low heat until scalded. Stir in the 2 tablespoons of Earth Balance, then set it aside.
Step 3: Yeast It!
Dissolve the yeast in warm water (not over 110°) and let it sit for 10 minutes or until yeast is bubbly.
Step 4: Stir It!
Add the sugar and salt to the 3 tablespoons of water and whisk well, then add it to the yeast mixture.
Step 5: Mix it!
Add the flour to the yeast/salt-sugar mixture and mix well. Lastly, stir in the milk and Earth Balance mixture and mix until a large ball forms. (We used a stand mixer with a bread hook).
