Not liking Lollipop does not mean non-fan of lollipops will be miss having the chance to chomp a galaxy or two, but that’s only dough, specifically donut, is your cuppa. While the homemade Galaxy Donuts are not galaxy-specific, they do look pretty much like the mesmerizing space beyond the atmosphere of our beloved little blue marble. So, we apologize for misleading you to think you can munch on The Milky Way Galaxy, but hey, with some luck, you may end up with a Milky Way Galaxy lookalike and hence, we are not totally misleading you, are we?
So, where can you grab these delicious confectionary? Nowhere. Sadly. If want them, you have to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty (but don’t dirty the dough cos’ you will be putting them in your stomach, eventually). There are a few instructions out there and some of them found its way onto Instagram like this one by Sam Melbourne, AKA sobeautifullyraw. If you need us to more explicit about where to find instructions to making some Homemade Galaxy Doughnuts, just scroll down for a couple of how-to videos. Let us know how it turns out, alright? We will be waiting.
?? Vegan Galaxy Donuts ✨✨This is as far as my procrastination took me today – making galactic treats for my sick boyfriend ?) Simple Donut Recipe: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup raw cane sugar 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp nutmeg pinch of cinnamon 1/2 cup soy milk 1 tsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp pure vanilla extract with seeds 1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp water 1/4 cup vegan margarine (Nuttelex or Earthbalance) 1. Preheat the oven to 180 and grease a donut tray. 2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. 3. Mix together the soy milk and apple cider vinegar and let it sit for a few minutes until it thickens. 4. In a small saucepan, melt the soy milk, vanilla, flaxseed (the egg replacer) and margarine over a low heat until the butter has just melted (Do not let it boil/simmer) 5. Combine both wet and dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. 6. Using a teaspoon, spoon the mixture evenly into the donut holes, flattening out with your finger for best results. 7. Bake for 12 minutes. They are done once they have firmed up and a toothpick comes out clean (they don't need to 'brown') 8. Pop them out of the moulds and then allow to cool completely before icing. GALAXY ICING: 2-3 tbsp melted coconut oil 2-3 tbsp soy milk 1 2/3 – 2 cups powdered sugar Vegan natural food dye (Red and Blue) 1. Whisk together the melted coconut oil and soy milk and slowly begin to whisk in the powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Adjust liquids if you need to. 2. To achieve the 'galaxy' effect: (This is quite hard to explain, but if you've ever done marbling as a kid using coloured dye it is essentially the same thing) 3. Using small separate bowls I worked with a little bit of icing at a time and I simply dispersed drops of vegan friendly food dye around the white icing, swirling with a spoon. Adjust the colours/saturation as you'd like. 4. Simply dip and twirl a donut halfway into the icing and gently slide it out and you'll get that 'galaxy effect' 😉 5. Dusted with vegan edible food glitter. Inspired by @h.rebel ✨
