Vegan jelly doughnuts
Make a wish: In our series “Make a wish“ we develop recipes to make your wishes come true - whether it’s about vegan french toasts or doughnuts. If you also have a recipe that we should cook for you, send us a quick mail to email@example.com. Until then, find all your previous wished recipes here.
Welcome to our third round of „Make A Wish.“ This time it's getting hot and greasy after we made hearty vegan ground pork in our first round and sweet chocolate covered eggs in the second round for you.
Jette wrote as a private message on Instagram and asked for vegan jelly-filled doughnuts. We loved her idea and the thought of frying again. This recipe is for you, Jette!

- In a big bowl combine flour, sugar, and milk. Crumble yeast into a bowl and combine a bit. Set aside for 10 minutes.
