I made these donuts for what was supposed to be a special occasion – the first predicted snowfall of the season.

But while the entire northeastern United States was blanketed with soft and powdery snow, those of us in the nation’s capital ended up just getting rain.

Safe and warm inside my apartment, with donuts in hand, I watched as the rain fell slowly down the window. Who needs snow anyway, when you can have donuts???

Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes
Servings 18 – 20 mini donuts


  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp oil (or banana, applesauce, or almond butter for oil-free)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup spelt, white, or oat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or xylitol for sugar-free)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar or sugar-free powdered sugar


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the first four ingredients. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a mini (or regular) donut pan or mini muffin tin. In a large bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except the powdered sugar, and stir well. Pour wet into dry, stir until just evenly mixed, and immediately pour into the donut pan. Bake 8 minutes, then allow to cool completely before removing from the trays. Pour the powdered sugar into a deep bowl, then either dip the doughnuts into the bowl or simply sprinkle powdered sugar over the tops.
