Vegan Chocolate Donut by Ravish Mishra, Executive Chef, The Westin Goa



  • A pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg 
  • 1/2 cup (122 ml) non-dairy milk
  • 2 tbsp refined coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp active yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar 


  • 1 cup (125 g) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp (0.25 tsp) salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 2 tbsp almond flour


Preheat the oven to 180ºc. Grease a doughnut pan. 

Directions for the doughnut:

  1. Warm non-dairy milk (coconut or almond milk) and maple syrup and sugar in a saucepan or a bowl in the microwave. Mix well to combine the sugar. Add yeast and mix in. Let sit for 5 mins to activate. Add oil, vanilla, spices and blend in. 
  2. Add baking powder, salt, flours and whisk to make a soft paste. Let the mixture sit and increase in volume. A few mins later, transfer it to ziplock and pour it into the greased doughnut pan. Serve them more than half to make thinner doughnuts and let the batter sit for 5 minutes. 
  3. Bake at 180ºc/350 degrees F for 10 minutes. 
  4. Let it cool before serving.
