Golden Milk Donuts

Fine donuts with turmeric, for an extra golden-yellow color

Golden Milk Donuts

Golden Milk Donuts is a very fine thing. I love donuts more than anything and when they have such a great color and golden-yellow glow, then it is over me. My favorite thing to do then is to have a hot cup of coffee with it, my favorite armchair and a nice fire in the fireplace. The weather here in Bavaria leaves much to be desired and I find that this bright color of the donuts help over the sleet showers quite well. Turmeric not only colors the donuts super nice, but is also very healthy. Let’s get started together.

Only a few tools are needed to make the donuts. A donut mold, a piping bag (or freezer bag), and a baking bowl.

For the dough we need plant milk, applesauce, raw cane sugar, dry yeast, margarine or baking oil, spelt flour (or alternatively my gluten-free flour blend), almond flour, baking powder, bourbon vanilla, turmeric and a pinch of salt.

The only thing missing is the stunning topping of powdered sugar, turmeric and plant milk. This is stirred together super fast and makes the donuts extra fine.

TIP: I top the donuts with fine shredded coconut. This is absolutely optional. Instead of shredded coconut, you can use pistachios or other chopped nuts.
