I've been craving donuts lately but don't want to pay an arm and a leg to have vegan donuts delivered. I found some used Donut Express pans on E-bay so I decided to try them out. They come with 3 donut pans: one for regular donuts, one for mini-donuts and one for filled (no hole) donuts. It also comes with a pamphlet with recipes and a little pastry injector to fill the donuts and 6 different tips for decorating.<br><br><br><br>
I read some reviews that said that the donuts were hard to get out of the pan, so I greased the pans heavily with vegetable shortening before baking and the donuts slid right out with no problem.<br><br><br><br>
I adapted one of the recipes to make it vegan and I used my own recipes for vanilla glaze and chocolate glaze. They don't taste like traditional fried donuts but they're still yummy and my family liked them. I took a photo for you to drool over! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br><br><br><br>
The batter was too thick to easily pour into the pans and it was a little tricky to fill them evenly and avoid overfilling them. I tried put the batter into a cookie press with the simple round decorator attachment and fill them that way. The pans were much easier to fill that way, especially the mini pan.<br><br><br><br>
I'll probably be experimenting with different recipes, toppings, and fillings, so I'll have a lot of extra donuts in my house. If your going to be in Binghamton, NY stop by for some vegan donuts! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:">

Those look awesome. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br><br><br>
If you want to avoid having to clean your cookie press just use a zip-top bag with the corner cut off to pipe the filling into the pans.

jojob, your donuts look awesome. I wish I was in NY!!<br><br><br><br>
I make donuts all the time too. I have a NORPRO non-stick mini-donut pan that works like a dream. I make the whole wheat baking mix that I get from Southaven Farm -- <a href="http://www.southavenfarm.com" target="_blank">www.southavenfarm.com</a> -- and then I use their glaze recipe too (basic glaze recipe is here: <a href="http://www.southavenfarm.com/recipe_details.php?recipeid=49" target="_blank">http://www.southavenfarm.com/recipe_...hp?recipeid=49</a>. They are vegetarian but when I want to make them for my vegan sister, I use soy milk and soy yogurt or pureed tofu. I always use organic sugar, sometimes turbinado, for the sweetener. Very yummy. Now I want to go make some donuts!!
