Quick and Easy Cinnamon Sugar Donuts


1 cup So Delicious® Dairy Free Original Coconutmilk Beverage
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 oz firm tofu
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar (optional)
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
oil for frying

Heat oil in deep fryer, or 3” of oil in a large frying pan.

Combine coconut milk, vegetable oil and tofu in a blender. Blend until completely liquefied.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Add liquid ingredients and stir to combine. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead to make a soft dough. Press dough with your hands hands until it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a donut cutter.

Gently place several donuts at a time into the hot oil. Turn each one after a minute, and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate.

For optional cinnamon sugar coating:

In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. Coat warm donuts with cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Shh! No one will ever know that these cake donuts are dairy-free! Tofu and So Delicious® Dairy Free Original Coconutmilk Beverage give them a great texture. Watch out! They'll be gone before they're cool!

I use firm tofu, but any tofu works well, as it is blended until liquefied.

Feel free to dress your donuts up however you like...plain, powdered sugar, whatever!

I do not recommend baking these donuts...I tried and they were more like biscuits.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
