Not only is Ashley a good friend and one of my favourite bloggers, but she just came out with her first cookbook this month called Baked Doughnuts for Everyone! Her cookbook features 101 gluten-free doughnuts and around 50 gorgeous photographs shot by Ashley herself. The book is stunning, colourful, and oozing with baked doughnut inspiration. While most of the recipes in the book aren’t vegan, you will find around 10 recipes that are completely vegan!

Ashley is just as she appears on her blog – funny, down to earth, and extremely talented. I only wish we lived closer!

I thought it would be fun to hear from the author herself. See below for a Q&A I did with Ashley:

Can you tell us why you wrote this book and what it’s all about?
The idea for Baked Doughnuts for Everyone actually originated with the publisher. They contacted me to see if I would be interested in writing a gluten-free, baked doughnut cookbook since they knew I had a slew of gluten-free baked doughnut recipes already on my blog.  Of course my answer was, YES!!! The book is all about baked doughnuts!  You will find everything from doughnut shop standbys, fruit-filled combinations, decadent indulgences, savory specialties, and so much more. There is even a recipe for dog-doughnuts!

What was it like seeing your book on the shelf for the first time?
It was absolutely surreal!  Everything started to really sink in when I held a copy of the book in my hands, then saw a stack of them in a store, and then saw people instagramming photos of the book. It’s still hard to believe.  I am filled with excitement and gratitude.

I know there are a lot of readers out there who want to write a book of their own someday. Can you talk a bit about how you came to writing your first cookbook?
I was extremely fortunate to have the publisher come to me with this idea, so I was able to skip some of the process. However, I still had to write a proposal so it could be presented to the publishing team for approval.  Thankfully, it was approved! I overnighted 2 batches of doughnuts for their meeting which may have helped convince them this book needed to happen. ;)  I feel extremely fortunate to have had this opportunity and am thrilled with how everything has turned out.

I had a lot of ups and downs throughout the cookbook development process so I’m curious
to know what was the most difficult part about the process for you?
I think the hardest part was staying organized. There’s no tutorial on how to write a cookbook, or how to stay organized while writing a cookbook, so I found this to be pretty challenging. I’m a fairly organized person but felt like a hot mess for the three months I was writing this book. I would also say the time frame was incredibly daunting. I had three short months to test, photograph, and write the entire book.  I worked non-stop to get it finished on time and don’t remember leaving my house very much, except for daily trips to the grocery store, haha.

Were there any flavours you were certain wouldn’t work, but they ended up surprising you?
Or vice versa?
Not exactly, but I think there were a LOT of flavors that ended up being way more delicious than I expected. A few off the top of my head are: Blackberry Basil, Dried Fig and Goat Cheese, Carrot Cake, Strawberry Lavender, Everything [from the savory chapter], Red Velvet, and Tiramisu. Okay, I think I could have named half the book here, haha.  There were numerous flavors I wasn’t sure would translate well into a doughnut but so many of the recipes ended up being such a pleasant surprise.

All of your recipes are gluten-free and made without the use of gums (such
as xanthan gum). As someone who hasn’t had much success baking with xanthan gum, I appreciate this! Many of your go-to flours in this book are oat flour, sweet rice flour, almond meal, and coconut flour. Which is your favourite gluten-free flour to bake with and why?
Thanks for making mention of this. I strive to keep my gluten-free baking as simple as possible, while creating a texture that no one ever suspects to be gluten-free. In the case of these doughnuts the gluten-free flours actually work in their favor. I don’t think there is a way to duplicate the same soft, cakey texture using “regular” [gluten] flours. Picking a favorite flour is difficult because they really work together to create something magical.  But, if you make me choose I would have to say almond meal. Its moisture content from the fats adds a mild, nutty flavor and thick texture, which takes gluten-free baking to a whole new level.  No more starchy, crumbly, grainy baked goods here!  While gluten-free baking can seem daunting, my hope is that this book will help ease peoples’ fears! That is one reason I tried to keep the same flours throughout the entire book


If you could live off of one doughnut for the rest of your life which one would you choose?
This is the hardest question ever and changes by the day.  I think the most delicious flavor and creation I’m most proud of is the Apple Fritter Doughnut. While it differs from the bakery fritter you may be familiar with, this baked version will most definitely knock your socks off.

I see there are a handful of vegan doughnuts in your book (thank you!) and I can’t decide which one to make first. Help? I think the Vegan Gooey Chocolate Doughnuts are my favorite! This was actually a recipe that happened by accident a few years back. I was making doughnuts for my sister-in-law and they didn’t bake all the way through. I was annoyed at first but we dug into them anyway and decided they were absolutely delicious and addicting and needed to become an actual recipe.  One of my favorite things to do is prep the wet and dry ingredients separately while I’m getting ready for a dinner party. Then, just before dinner, I’ll whisk the ingredients together and place them in the oven.  By the time dinner is over dessert is ready! The only other thing you need is a scoop of vanilla bean coconut milk ice cream to finish things off right.

Well, on that note, I see gooey chocolate doughnuts in my future! Thanks again Ashley and congrats on your new cookbook!

Ashley's Triple Chocolate Doughnuts

Vegan, gluten-free

By

Angela's note: Gooey, moist, and dense these vegan and gluten-free doughnuts will satisfy your every chocolate craving and then some! Vegan + GF doughnuts are sensitive to ingredient changes, so it's important not to make any substitutions in this recipe. Please note that sweet rice flour is not the same thing as rice flour and they are not interchangeable. Printed with permission from the book Baked Doughnuts for Everyone by Ashley McLaughlin. Excerpted by arrangement with Fair Winds Press. Copyright © 2013.

Yield
10-12 standard doughnuts
Prep time
Cook time

Ingredients:

For the doughnuts:
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1/2 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons oil (I used grapeseed oil-AL)
  • 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life mini chips-AL)
For the chocolate frosting:
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • vegan sprinkles, for garnish (I used Let's Do Sprinklez -AL)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a doughnut pan.
  2. For the doughnuts: Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir until combined. In another bowl, whisk all of the wet ingredients (milk, applesauce, oil) together until fully combined.
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined, being careful not to overmix (stop when you no longer see dry flour). Let batter sit for 5 minutes. Do not stir after this point. The batter will be very thick and not pourable.
  4. Spoon the batter into the doughnut molds, filling to just below the top of each mold (3 to 6 mm) from the top. Lightly smooth out the top of the batter with a small silicone spatula. Do not pack the batter down.
  5. Bake for 18-23 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the centre should come out clean (unless you stab it into a melted chocolate chip, that is!). Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Slide a thin spatula around the edges of the doughnut to help loosen them out. Then place on a cooling rack and allow to fully cool before topping.
  6. For the frosting: Add the frosting ingredients into a medium bowl and beat with electric mixers until smooth, adjusting the amount of milk or sugar, if necessary. Spread the frosting onto cooled doughnuts and garnish with sprinkles, if desired.

Tips:

Note: I baked the doughnuts for a bit longer than called for (23 minutes) and used a regular size pan (6 doughnut) and a mini pan (12 doughnuts), baking both at the same time.

Shirin October 9, 2013 at 8:50 am

Ever since I was a kid, I loved the chocolate donut with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles (served with chocolate milk, of course). It’s a rarer option now in donut shops for some reason, so if I ever stop in one now, and its there, it’s bought within a millisecond!

Tiffany October 9, 2013 at 8:50 am

My favorite doughnuts are apple cider doughnuts. Haven’t had one in years, though!

Christine @ Gotta Eat Green October 9, 2013 at 8:51 am

Oh Wow! And it’s great to have a competition open to the UK too :-) YAY! I think cinnamon sugar would have to be my favourite – or something iced.

Mindy October 9, 2013 at 8:52 am

I love making baked doughnuts and will most definitely be trying this recipe soon! Due to obvious (seasonal) reasons, I’ve been making my own “healthified” baked pumpkin and apple spice doughnuts for the last few weeks, but love a gluten free option!

Amber Shaus October 9, 2013 at 8:53 am

Sally Crippen October 9, 2013 at 8:54 am

I love Ashley and her blog! And I love that you two are friends since I love your blog too! I’m so glad Ashley has written this cookbook to help those of us donut lovers who have to avoid gluten and/or dairy! I love any donut that has coconut in it. :)

Katie M October 9, 2013 at 8:55 am

I love apple fritters! Haven’t had one in forever though. I’d love to try Ashley’s apple fritter doughnut.

Afton October 9, 2013 at 8:55 am

Hannah October 9, 2013 at 9:11 am

Laura Bolton October 9, 2013 at 9:17 am

I love a good doughnut, however, they always tend to be a guilty treat, it’s so exciting to see that there is a much healthier way to enjoy them without sacrificing on flavour!

Favourite wise, I love anything filled with a custard style cream – mostly because no one else likes them, more for me!

Brigitte October 9, 2013 at 9:18 am

My fav doughnut is anything with maple, maple frosting, maple flavored maple cream center!!! Natures vegan sweetness !! I put in anything sweet !! love it!! I love your site Just made your Tofu spinach pie last night for my non vegan family and they loved it finally I found a recipe I can make again another day for them!! I haven’t been able to find one yet that is carnivore parent approved!! THanks !!

Jenna October 9, 2013 at 9:22 am

There is a little farm by my house that makes the best apple cider donuts – I like them plain or with just a itty bit of cinnamon/sugar on the top.

Ginger October 9, 2013 at 9:23 am

Sounds like a really neat cookbook. Those doughnuts look delicious!

Cara October 9, 2013 at 9:23 am

I love peanut butter & jelly donuts. We’ve tried making the recipe vegan but so far we’ve met with only tasty disaster. :)

Nicole October 9, 2013 at 9:23 am

I love Ashley’s blog! I’m tempted to try veganizing the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Doughnuts on her blog.

Amanda @ .running with spoons October 9, 2013 at 9:24 am

Donuts seriously make me weak in the knees — especially around this time of the year. My favourite would probably be chocolate glazed, followed by apple fritters. Aaaand cue craving…

robyn October 9, 2013 at 9:24 am

I LOVE Apples and cinnamon so an apple cinnamon doughnut would have to be my favorite. OR possibly chocolate.. who doesn’t like chocolate :)

Lindsay October 9, 2013 at 9:25 am

Hmmm I’ve always loved a simple glazed doughnut. Something lemony also sounds tasty!

Carolyn October 9, 2013 at 9:25 am

Definitely chocolate, my go to treat!

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 9:27 am

Any doughnut is a good doughnut – never me one I didn’t like!

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 9:29 am

*met even :/

Cole October 9, 2013 at 9:27 am

Blueberry cake

Heather J October 9, 2013 at 9:27 am

I love Boston Cream donuts & would love to win this book :)

shannon October 9, 2013 at 9:28 am

Im simple. I like plain chocolate :)

Alicia K October 9, 2013 at 9:28 am

Maple-glazed doughnuts!

Michelle October 9, 2013 at 9:28 am

My favorite donuts are the blueberry ones!

ELM October 9, 2013 at 9:29 am

I would LOVE this cookbook! My favorite doughnut is anything chocolate or pumpkin!

Jessica Eagle October 9, 2013 at 9:30 am

Thanks for the giveaway :)

I really like chocolate doughnut…miammm !!! I can’t wait to try these :)

Ashley N. October 9, 2013 at 9:30 am

YUMMM! This books looks delicious!

Simone ten Kortenaar October 9, 2013 at 9:31 am

Definitely apple cider doughnuts! Fresh from the market, mmmm :)

Anna {Herbivore Triathlete} October 9, 2013 at 9:32 am

Ooh, I love Ashley and her blog! I am excited that you featured one of her recipes, it looks incredible.

I would love to win a copy of her book, she is amazing at creating doughnuts (and breakfast!).

My favorite flavor of doughnuts is probably chocolate, but pumpkin is a close second!

Elaine Miller October 9, 2013 at 9:34 am

Mmmm, these chocolate donuts look really yummy and tempting. Normally I avoid doughnuts because of the oil slick feeling left in my mouth, plus they’re usually sickly sweet but these look wonderful.

denise October 9, 2013 at 9:34 am

These look incredible! I still really love the old fashioned doughnut and would love to have this book since I am 35 weeks pregnant and doughnuts just make sense right now ;)

Kristen October 9, 2013 at 9:34 am

Wow, these look amazing, chocolate is definitely my favorite flavor! I’d absolutely love to win the cookbook!

Heather October 9, 2013 at 9:35 am

My favorite doughnut is an apple fritter, so the mention of an apple fritter doughtnut in this cookbook has me very intrigued.

Nancy Leclerc October 9, 2013 at 9:35 am

The best doughnut I’ve ever had is the Bourbon Creme Brûlée from the Cinnamon Snail. Amazing!

Daisy October 9, 2013 at 9:35 am

Ooooh, I’d love that cookbook! My daughter is slowly transitioning to gluten-free and really wants doughnuts. (I’m actually trying a recipe from another book today.) A whole book on gluten-free doughnuts? She’d be in heaven! (Besides, her 16th birthday is coming up. ;) )

My favourite doughnut, unfortunately, is the sour cream or the Boston creme, both of which I can no longer eat due to discovering a dairy sensitivity!

Burcu October 9, 2013 at 9:36 am

My favourite donuts are pumpkin spice!!!

Shimmy October 9, 2013 at 9:36 am

I love plain glaze and bear claws!

Alex October 9, 2013 at 9:39 am

I love maple bars!

Rachel October 9, 2013 at 9:39 am

What an awesome giveaway! I love chocolate donuts.

Steph October 9, 2013 at 9:39 am

Cake doughnut with chocolate frosting – soooo good!

Raquel October 9, 2013 at 9:39 am

My favorite ones are chocolate and caramel! If they are together it’s even better :)

Kelly R. October 9, 2013 at 9:39 am

Mmmm! Baked doughnuts are one of my favorite treats to make! Honeydew is my favorite, but I haven’t found out how to make a baked version yet…maybe it’s in the cookbook :)

Heather October 9, 2013 at 9:41 am

Anything with maple in it! :)

Jennifer L October 9, 2013 at 9:41 am

So glad you got to review Ashley’s book!
My favourite donut is apple fritter…or chocolate glazed :)

abby October 9, 2013 at 9:42 am

apple cider donuts!!

Sharon October 9, 2013 at 9:43 am

I agree with Ashley that the best doughnut flavour is the apple fritter. I’d love to try out her recipe! Maybe using some fancy spoons to measure ingredients ;)

Lauren October 9, 2013 at 9:43 am

My favorite donuts are definitely any with frosting + sprinkles!

Daisy October 9, 2013 at 9:44 am

I would have to say that cinnamon and coconut donuts are by far my favorite!

Kate Clark October 9, 2013 at 9:44 am

I am so excited for Ashley and her new book! It looks absolutely amazing and her photographs and always breathtaking. I am such a sucker for cinnamon doughnuts! But the seasonal pumpkins definitely comes in a close second (: I would love to get Ashley’s book so I can find a new amazing favorite!!(:

Tammy October 9, 2013 at 9:45 am

Thank you for this giveaway. I can’t wait to try this donut recipe – first I need to buy a donut tray and sweet rice flour (any suggestions on where to buy organic sweet rice flour in southern Ontario?). I haven’t eaten a donut in a number of years (the ingredients scare me ;) but I used to enjoy chocolate walnut crunch and honey cruellers. I look forward to trying a baked donut with healthier ingredients.

alba October 9, 2013 at 9:45 am

My favourite doughnut is Blueberry. Although I have to admit a mix of banana, choc and peanut butter doughnut would be amazing too…

Elise October 9, 2013 at 9:47 am

Before I was diagnosed with sever gluten, dairy, and egg intolerances I use to LOVE getting the vanilla frosted sprinkle doughnuts from Zehrs.

Sara October 9, 2013 at 9:47 am

Chocolate frosting with sprinkles!!!!!!!

Jenn October 9, 2013 at 9:51 am

Who can resist chocolate :)

Stephanie October 9, 2013 at 9:52 am

I love donuts, and have missed stopping at Tim Horton’s as a special treat so much since going vegan! Apple fritters have always been a favourite, but I will take any of them that are vegan. :)

Kimberly October 9, 2013 at 9:53 am

My favorite would have to be a vanilla cake donut with chocolate frosting & sprinkles!!

Becki @ Bites 'n Brews October 9, 2013 at 9:54 am

Fresh apple cider donuts with a steaming mug of spiced apple cider at the apple orchard! That used to be a tradition when I lived in the midwest.

Cristal Porter October 9, 2013 at 9:54 am

Oh man! Oh man! I’m on this ridiculous cooking/baking phase thanks to your website!

After narrowing it down, I would have to say my favorite kind of donut is glazed with chocolate frosting. MMmmm. I just love a good glazed donut and the chocolate on top just makes it that much better! I have yet to find a vegan/gluten free bakery that makes them, but perhaps in the future I’ll be able to make my own. (hint hint)

Thank you for your recipes and this giveaway!

Kim October 9, 2013 at 9:54 am

I’m in love with blueberry, cakey donuts…mmmmm…

Julia October 9, 2013 at 9:55 am

They all sound delicious, but I’d love to try the blueberry-basil one. Never had that combination before.. The book sounds so cool, doughnuts really aren’t a big thing here (The Netherlands), so it would be great to spread the doughnut-word through my dutch blog.

Rach October 9, 2013 at 9:55 am

It has been nearly three years since I have had anything near a donut due to the elimination of gluten and dairy. I am excited to have a new recipe to try!! The chocolate one above will likely hit the spot! :-)

Danielle October 9, 2013 at 9:56 am

I love cake donuts with caramel icing! But the icing is so sweet that it’s more of a dessert than a breakfast pastry. Yum!

Brenda Finney October 9, 2013 at 9:57 am

I have not had a doughnut in years…so any flavor would do…these ones look yummy, and the combinations of flours in awesome!

Libby October 9, 2013 at 9:57 am

Love plain glazed ones or ones with white icing! This cookbook looks amazeballs

Joanna October 9, 2013 at 9:57 am

I love all of her donut recipes! I have to say my fav is anything chocolate.

Angela October 9, 2013 at 9:57 am

These look AH-mazing! Definitely a chocolate girl…..

Alyssa October 9, 2013 at 9:58 am

I am a huge donut lover, and my favorites include strawberry frosted (DUNKIN DONUTS!), and Maple Bars (Top Pot). I would love to try making my own using the recipes in her book!

Roxanne October 9, 2013 at 9:58 am

Huge fan! Would love to add this book to my shelves! :D

Anna October 9, 2013 at 10:02 am

My favorite doughnut flavor is Vanilla! But chocolate is close second :)

Christina October 9, 2013 at 10:03 am

I like pumpkin and chocolate doughnuts, but I think that my favorite is plain vanilla. :)

Renee October 9, 2013 at 10:04 am

I love blueberry cake donuts.

Joelle October 9, 2013 at 10:05 am

This is definitely a case of “ask and you shall receive” because just yesterday I was telling my husband, “You know, doughnuts are about the only thing you can buy that I can’t make. I mean, I can make them, but I don’t want to deal with all that oil and frying and stuff.” And voila! This book is definitely going on my list. As are doughnut molds (plus I have several friends who are gluten free who will be excited to hear about it).

Ashley Petersen October 9, 2013 at 10:05 am

There are two types of doughnuts I love:

Classic vanilla with chocolate frosting

and…

APPLE CIDER DOUGHNUTS!

Having recently realized through some diet experimentation that I have an intolerance to wheat, it has been a very sad autumn without these scrumptious snacks in my belly.

Seeing this article today has given me inspiration to create some variations of my own! In fact, I plan on running out to get a doughnut mold for some fall festivities happening this weekend!

Adding this book to my recently growing collection of gluten-free (and vegan!) recipe books will not only satisfy my sweet tooth, but help bring light to my diet transition.

Keep cooking, blogging, and sharing!
Ashley

ariana October 9, 2013 at 10:06 am

my favorite is caramel with maple frosting!

Lisa October 9, 2013 at 10:06 am

I would love to win this cookbook! Those doughnuts look delish! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Cindy October 9, 2013 at 10:09 am

I love ALL doughnuts. It doesn’t matter if they are glazed, filled, cake…my very favorite food in the whole world. Can’t wait to try out this recipe. To find a doughnut that is semi-healthy, my prayers have been answered.

Aryn October 9, 2013 at 10:10 am

Congrats to Ashley on publishing such a fun cookbook! Chocolate doughnuts are definitely my favourite, however the dried fig and goat cheese doughnuts Ashley mentioned sound amazing!

Tegan October 9, 2013 at 10:10 am

I would have to say chocolate doughnut with chocolate frosting!!! Yummy!!!!!!

Desiree October 9, 2013 at 10:12 am

I love sour cream doughnuts! So delicious! I would love a cookbook!

Jessica @ FromtheKitchentotheRoad October 9, 2013 at 10:15 am

I like anything with chocolate on it. That Triple Chocolate number up there looks divine!

Sarah T October 9, 2013 at 10:16 am

I love Ashley’s recipes and would love to try out her doughnut recipes! I am drooling just thinking about that baked apple fritter!

Shelby Blom October 9, 2013 at 10:17 am

Ritika October 9, 2013 at 10:20 am

Chocolate donut with chocolate glazed and topped with rainbow sprinkles … My kind of a classic donut

Melissa October 9, 2013 at 10:27 am

Danielle October 9, 2013 at 10:29 am

vanessa tab October 9, 2013 at 10:31 am

Colleen October 9, 2013 at 10:31 am

These look delicious! Can’t wait to try. My favorite flavor is peanut butter and jelly…I also made baked biscoff donuts that were quite tasty!

Nicole October 9, 2013 at 10:33 am

Old-fashioned glazed. Maybe a little boring, but always delicious!

Melissa Campbell October 9, 2013 at 10:33 am

i love vegan doughnuts. i buy them almost every week at the local farmers’ market. the last one i had was coffee flavoured and it was amazing. i enjoyed it with some homemade vanilla maple almond milk (thanks to you Angela for your almond milk recipe; i’m hooked!). would be so happy if i won. :)

NicT October 9, 2013 at 10:33 am

A simple old-fashioned does it for me!

Elizabeth Horton October 9, 2013 at 10:34 am

I like pumpkin. That could just be because I’m obsessed with everything pumpkin right now

Heidi October 9, 2013 at 10:35 am

well, those look delicious! i can’t ever turn down a chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 10:35 am

I love Ashley and her oats recipes so I’m excited to try her donuts! I’m happy with anything chocolate and glazed..mmm.

cynthia October 9, 2013 at 10:35 am

donuts filled with custard or jam rock my world. this book looks exciting indeed….. thanks angela!

Shannan October 9, 2013 at 10:36 am

I have been eyeing this book for weeks. I would LOVE to have it. My favorite flavor is vanilla. :)

Ashley October 9, 2013 at 10:37 am

I don’t eat many donuts these days, but glazed cinnamon twists were my favorite growing up!

Jenna October 9, 2013 at 10:37 am

I have been looking to find a good gluten free and vegan doughnut! My absolute fav is the one with strawberry frosting!

Carly October 9, 2013 at 10:37 am

I love mint chocolate chip! YUM!!

Tiffany L October 9, 2013 at 10:38 am

Well, your pictures of the chocolate donuts make it hard to think of another favorite flavor, but because I’ve been feeling fall-like lately (and with the first fall rainfall expected today for SoCal), I would say pumpkin spice would be delicious today with my coffee.

Allison Laurent October 9, 2013 at 10:38 am

I would have to say that my favorite doughnut is the apple fritter….if that counts as a doughnut! I also love any doughnut with frosting!

Planete October 9, 2013 at 10:39 am

I absolutely love the Ashley’s blog and can’t wait to try more of her donut recipes.
I like plain donut with a classic vanilla frosting. Yum!

Charlotte October 9, 2013 at 10:40 am

I love old fashion donuts and chocolate baked donuts. I rarely eat then but they are so tasty when I do. This book looks fabulous!

Wendy Alexandra October 9, 2013 at 10:41 am

I don’t think I’ve met a doughnut that I didn’t like or want to eat :-)

Mona October 9, 2013 at 10:42 am

I haven’t had donuts in years but am so happy to see this vegan gluten-free recipe!! My favorite is chocolate glazed, yum!

Christina Steinhart October 9, 2013 at 10:44 am

My favorite would definitely be anything chocolate or anything apple. You just CANNOT go wrong with either! Congrats!

Ange @ Cowgirl Runs October 9, 2013 at 10:45 am

Sour cream glazed. Always and forever :)

Jill October 9, 2013 at 10:45 am

My favorite flavor of donut is a toss-up between pumpkin and apple. So fall is definitely a great time to get a donut cookbook!!!!

Chels October 9, 2013 at 10:45 am

Blueberry donuts will always be my favorite.

Erika October 9, 2013 at 10:46 am

I hardly ever eat doughnuts because I’m wheat-free. Pumpkin spice would be amazing though!

Carrie October 9, 2013 at 10:47 am

I love pumpkin cake donuts at this time of year smothered in maple cinnamon cream cheese frosting!

Diana October 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

I could not be more excited to make gluten-free donuts?! My favourite is the one with sprinkles or “sparkles” as I like to call them. Thanks for posting!

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat October 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

Holy smokes, these look amazing!! And I love Ashley’s blog – she is one talented lady!! I think my ideal doughnut would be something to do with carrot cake and cream cheese drizzle (or a vegan version of cream cheese). Of course, I’m obsessed with anything pumpkin these days (just like the general majority of the population!) so pumpkin spice with a cinnamon drizzle would be great too!

LaReine October 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

Yum!! I’ve been wanting to try vegan doughnuts since I went vegan! My favourite from timmies used to be maple dip! Your maple butter on top of a golden doughnut? Oh man I might have to whip up a batch this weekend!

Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog October 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

I loved reading this since I don’t really know much about gluten-free baking. All the doughnuts Ashley described sound amazing, as do these chocolate ones. Thanks for sharing!

Tan Smethurst October 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

I’m a sucker for any kind with sprinkles!

Audrey October 9, 2013 at 10:49 am

One of the things I “missed” going vegan was donuts. This is great! :)

Lauren October 9, 2013 at 10:50 am

I love those old fashioned blueberry cake donuts…yum!

Alicia @bakeaholic October 9, 2013 at 10:50 am

Love a sour cream glaze =)

Marlies October 9, 2013 at 10:54 am

Ooooh an apple fritter donut? I could go for that :)

Nikita October 9, 2013 at 10:55 am

I think some of my favorites are the fall- type flavors right now such as pumpkin spice or apple cider. I made Ashely’s apple cider doughnuts for a group of friends who were missing these deliciously indulgent apple cider doughnuts we used to have every fall from our local apple orchard. Who knew memories could taste so good? :)

stacey October 9, 2013 at 10:56 am

chocolate glazed donuts!

Jessi @househealthy October 9, 2013 at 10:56 am

OMG, thank you for sharing, these look A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! My favorite flavor of doughnuts – anything gluten free and vegan!! It’s so rare to find both that I love any flavor I can find :)

Molly October 9, 2013 at 10:57 am

The original, no-frills doughnut, as long as they’re fresh and hot!

Mandy D October 9, 2013 at 10:59 am

Hey Angela!
I was just wondering Ashley had any Sugar-free recipes in her new book?

Laura October 9, 2013 at 10:59 am

Ashely’s book is on the top of my birthday wish list! I already made the doughnut recipe that was featured on dailygarnish.com, and I loved it of course! I will try to make this recipe this week! My favorite doughnut flavor is definitely chocolate, but a simple glazed doughnut never fails!

Kara October 9, 2013 at 11:00 am

Favorite donut ever…Pumpkin Spice Cake Donut (with coffee and cream)

Shelly October 9, 2013 at 11:03 am

Anything I can sub for rice flour???

Beth October 9, 2013 at 11:04 am

I LOVE a simple, chocolate cake donut! These look amazing!

Karen October 9, 2013 at 11:04 am

My favorite is a nice warm chocolate doughnut with a melty glaze.Yummm

I love peanut butter stuffed donuts with chocolate icing! yum!

Erica {Coffee & Quinoa} October 9, 2013 at 11:08 am

Glazed chocolate crullers from Dunkin Donuts have to be my favorite. They always had them fresh in my college dining hall – trouble!

Elizabeth October 9, 2013 at 11:09 am

Pumpkin!!!

Steph Shackelford October 9, 2013 at 11:11 am

The triple chocolate donuts sound and look pretty fantastic, so I’d love to win a copy of the book and give them a try!

Stephanie October 9, 2013 at 11:11 am

This recipe looks amazing!! However, my favorite donut of all time is a freshly baked sour cream glazed!

Noelle October 9, 2013 at 11:12 am

Mm donuts I think I love all flavors but chocolate are my absolute favorite!

Jenn October 9, 2013 at 11:13 am

Plain glazed – but I’ve never had a vegan one!

Ananda October 9, 2013 at 11:13 am

My favorite flavor of doughnut is an Old Fashioned Glazed. Yum, so good.

Laura- five focus October 9, 2013 at 11:14 am

Anything Pumpkin right now… oh and apple. … and cinnamon… and maple…
Fall time screams for any (or all) of these amazing flavours!

Brittany October 9, 2013 at 11:15 am

The doughnuts look AMAZING!! I love any doughnut, really. However, my favorite is the creme-filled vanilla flavor.

Erica Rose October 9, 2013 at 11:15 am

Maple bar.

Alissa Stearman October 9, 2013 at 11:16 am

I made her peanut butter doughnuts with a chocolate glaze last year and they were amazing! So so good…couldn’t keep my hands off. I’ve also made her pumpkin spice doughnuts, banana bread doughnuts, and molasses doughnuts. They were all a hit! I would love to have her cookbook!!

Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies October 9, 2013 at 11:17 am

I’m not sure I’ve ever met a donut I didn’t like! One of my good friends is GF and has this saying, “Donuts make me go nuts” — so I’d love to be able to make more varieties of GF donuts for her!

Mariah O. October 9, 2013 at 11:18 am

I Love the twists and have missed an occasional doughnut due to a gluten intolerance! Thanks for the recipe and the opportunity!

Kate October 9, 2013 at 11:20 am

I love the idea of making doughnuts but I don’t have the mold! maybe I could make “sticks” on a pan instead…

Jenny October 9, 2013 at 11:20 am

Pick me! Pick Me! I would looooove me a doughnut making cookbook.
I love anything chocolately. And sprinkles don’t hurt ;p

Rachel October 9, 2013 at 11:23 am

mmmm…Raspberry donughts…..

Abrey E. October 9, 2013 at 11:25 am

I can’t wait to try the Apple fritter doughnut!

Alissa October 9, 2013 at 11:29 am

i love donuts!! apple fritters and glazed old fashioned!!

Melissa Hartz October 9, 2013 at 11:29 am

These donuts look so good, and I love that they are baked! The apple cider donuts at a local farm used to be my favorite fall indulgence, rolled in cinnamon sugar and still warm!

Jade Bowie October 9, 2013 at 11:30 am

This cookbook looks delicious! My favourite flavour is pumpkin doughnuts!

whitney October 9, 2013 at 11:30 am

I haven’t had one in years but I still find myself craving a good chocolate donut.

Flora October 9, 2013 at 11:32 am

This book looks amazing! I am a huge fan of a classic plain doughnut with an occasional chocolate thrown in.

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 11:33 am

I love a good old glazed cake doughnut, but the bakery at an orchard near our house makes a delicious apple cider doughnut this time of year too!

Therese October 9, 2013 at 11:33 am

I’m so excited for Ashley’s cookbook! (And yours, too!) I love double chocolate cake donuts so I am looking forward to seeing if this recipe lives up to those expectations :-)

Nicole October 9, 2013 at 11:34 am

Looks delish! Can’t wait for the chance to make these so my kids can try a healthier alternative to standard doughnuts!

Laura October 9, 2013 at 11:36 am

Vanilla iced cake donut!

Chelsea October 9, 2013 at 11:37 am

Mel October 9, 2013 at 11:41 am

Walnut crunch!

Tori October 9, 2013 at 11:42 am

I have to say I’m pretty traditional and LOVE a glazed doughnut, or a maple doughnut if I’m feeling crazy :) I can’t wait to try these versions!

Denielle October 9, 2013 at 11:45 am

My favorite flavor donut is just a simple glazed donut! :-D

Carol October 9, 2013 at 11:46 am

Maple frosted!

Audrey October 9, 2013 at 11:47 am

I love devil’s food cake donuts! As someone with celiac disease, I look forward to using this cookbook!

Michelle October 9, 2013 at 11:47 am

Definitely any kind of pumpkin doughnut, preferably with a maple glaze!

Megan October 9, 2013 at 11:48 am

I’m pretty sure any flavor of doughnut is a good doughnut! These look tasty and I can’t wait to try them!

Michelle October 9, 2013 at 11:48 am

My favorite donut flavor is anything glazed, preferably with a nice, cakey texture. I’d love to give the recipes in Ashley’s book a try!

Chelsea October 9, 2013 at 11:49 am

I’ve been waiting and waiting for Ashley’s cookbook to come out! She rocked my world with the donut recipes she shared on her blog….and I can’t wait to try the baklava donut she teased us all with a few months ago. :-)

Sydney October 9, 2013 at 11:50 am

I love an old-fashion donut in cinnamon and sugar! That cook book looks amazing and definitely going to try out these vegan chocolate doughnuts, look delicious :)

Abby October 9, 2013 at 11:51 am

pretty sure these could be my fave flavor! can not wait to try these babies out!!!

Lori October 9, 2013 at 11:52 am

I love Ashely’s blog. The two of you are my fave food bloggers- I always have great success with your recipes. My fave doughnut would have to be Canadian Maple or sour cream glazed!

Jen L October 9, 2013 at 11:52 am

I’m almost 6 months pregnant and can’t get enough apple fritters!

Katie Boyd October 9, 2013 at 11:52 am

coconut doughnuts, tied with plain jane ‘old fashioned’ doughnuts.

Kaycee @ Fitface October 9, 2013 at 11:55 am

ohmygosh ohmygosh, DEFINITELY maple donuts!!!! You’re a fellow Canadian girl (I know theyre probably not vegan, but from before your vegan days: Tim’s Maple donut…right? to die for). If only there were a recipe in this book for a healthy gluten free vegan maple donut. *hopefull*

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 11:55 am

The best doughnut ever is Oh She Glows Mini Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Spiced Doughnuts!!

Heidi October 9, 2013 at 11:56 am

These look amazing! I’ve never tried making donuts…but looks like I’ll be out looking for some new bakeware!!!

Laura Samuel October 9, 2013 at 11:57 am

Love any kind of fruity donut! Raspberry with white chocolate glaze is rather delightful, just as long as its warm from the oven!

Cindy S. October 9, 2013 at 11:59 am

Oh! That book looks fabulous…………..You’ve shown my favorite – CHOCOLATE! I have stayed away from doughnuts because they are deep fried. These baked donuts sound great! Those flavors you mentioned are intriguing……………

Kim StAmour October 9, 2013 at 11:59 am

I love, love, love chocolate doughnuts and I haven’t had one in about a year. I can’t wait to try this recipe…thanks.

Christina October 9, 2013 at 11:59 am

I am overcome with the urge to go out and buy a doughnut pan, stat!

Robyn October 9, 2013 at 12:00 pm

This cookbook sounds great!

I’m not a huge donut fan so I don’t really have a fave, but this is probably because I haven’t tried making my own (I find commercial donuts, even those from specialty shops, too sweet).

Hollie October 9, 2013 at 12:03 pm

What a yummy post! My family loves simple baked glazed donuts… After seeing this post Chocolate might be the new favourite!

Miss V. October 9, 2013 at 12:04 pm

Ohhh! It looks so good!!! My favorite flavour is honey! :D

js October 9, 2013 at 12:09 pm

I so miss the pumpkin cake donuts that I used to get at the Circleville, Ohio, Pumpkin Show every year. If I can recreate those I would be so unbelievably pleased.

Kay October 9, 2013 at 12:12 pm

looks great, can’t wait to try! my favourite is walnut crunch

Jessica October 9, 2013 at 12:14 pm

I find that I am getting more and more sensitive to wheat as the years go by. I hate to give up my baked goods so finding a great GF cookbook makes me super happy! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I can’t wait to try it!

The Vegan Cookie Fairy October 9, 2013 at 12:16 pm

It’s so great to see vegan recipes popping up in non-vegan books. I wish we had more tasty, good quality doughnuts here in the UK, but it doesn’t seem to have taken off much :(

Karen October 9, 2013 at 12:16 pm

I like apple!

julia October 9, 2013 at 12:18 pm

i love ALL donuts! :) :)

Emily Van Winkle October 9, 2013 at 12:18 pm

I can’t wait to try these! I love chocolate and maple doughnuts but don’t eat them. Would love a whole book of healthier versions!

Kristin October 9, 2013 at 12:18 pm

I love any kind of chocolate doughnut. Bonus points if there are sprinkles!

Ali October 9, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Ooo, doughnuts aren’t something I usually eat a lot of but I’m sure i would eat a lot more if I was making them myself! :)

Aryn October 9, 2013 at 12:19 pm

These look yum-tastic! Thank you so much for sharing, and what an interesting story about how you had the opportunity to write a cook book!
Fave flavor has to be between apple fritter, caramel glazed long john, and peanut cake donut :) mm

Emily R. October 9, 2013 at 12:19 pm

Chocolate glazed donuts are my favorite, but I’ve really been wanting to buy a doughnut pan and make some pumpkin ones this fall!

Michelle Carlson October 9, 2013 at 12:19 pm

This would be incredible! As a vegan in Edmonton, Alberta it is RARE that I can actually eat a donut. My Dad used to get us donuts every Sunday morning when we were kids and it makes me sad to think I am basically deprived! It would be so cool to do that tradition with healthy, vegan, baked donuts!

Recently I had an Earl Grey donut with Raspberry icing….changed my life.

Eileen T October 9, 2013 at 12:20 pm

My favorite is maple glazed donut.

Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries October 9, 2013 at 12:22 pm

Boston creme or maple frosted are my favorites!

kristy October 9, 2013 at 12:25 pm

Since becoming vegan, I have not had a doughnut. It feels like a looong time and this just sparked a craving. I would love to make those chocolate doughnuts and see the other 9 vegan recipes in that book. My favorite flavor had been the maple glazed doughnut.

Vegyogini October 9, 2013 at 12:27 pm

Thank you for the giveaway! I think I might like maple (vegan, of course) best, but I’m not really sure!

Louise October 9, 2013 at 12:30 pm

Thanks for teaming up with Ashley for this giveaway! I love your blog and Ashley’s too, and this cookbook looks awesome. Now I just can’t wait for your cookbook :)

Sarah D. October 9, 2013 at 12:31 pm

Ashley’s baked treats are so yummy, can’t wait to try this recipe! Favorite doughnut recipe *as a kid* was Boston creme all the way!

Vivian October 9, 2013 at 12:31 pm

These look beautiful and yummy. I can’t wait to try these! My favorite donuts are apple cider donuts.

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 12:31 pm

Old fashion plain doughnuts are my favourite! I love the hint of nutmeg!

Trisha H. October 9, 2013 at 12:32 pm

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a few years back and have been craving donuts! Giving up those fun treats has been a bummer. I would love to have this cookbook.

Crystal October 9, 2013 at 12:32 pm

Yum! My favorite doughnut is anything with frosting and sprinkles on top. This time of year, orange and black sprinkles for Halloween, of course!

Fatima October 9, 2013 at 12:33 pm

old fashioned, chocolate chip, coffee cake, and how about some fall flavors… apple cider, pumpkin, cranberry? Dipping glaze optional ;-)

Tara October 9, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Chocolate doughnuts are the best…other than simple glazed…

lindsay October 9, 2013 at 12:42 pm

I think an apple fritter tops my list :)

Bonnie October 9, 2013 at 12:42 pm

Me (mom) –raised with chocolate frosting; dd1 — blueberry; ds1 — chocolate donut holes; ids2 — anything; dd2 — blueberry and jelly filled; dh — filled with creme but nit the sugary creme

ana October 9, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Amazing!

Whitney October 9, 2013 at 12:46 pm

I love chocolate frosted with sprinkles!

Andrea October 9, 2013 at 12:48 pm

I love chocolate donuts, and I really want to win this book :)

Chris October 9, 2013 at 12:55 pm

So far chocolate has been the favorite one we have tried. We prefer using only almond and coconut flours. Hope to find a carrot recipe that’s good too.

Christina October 9, 2013 at 1:00 pm

My mouth is watering looking at these photos!

rosie morgan October 9, 2013 at 1:00 pm

I love a good custard filled donut with a glaze :D

Meg October 9, 2013 at 1:01 pm

I love pumpkin spiced doughnuts! This cookbook looks great!

Rachel M October 9, 2013 at 1:02 pm

My favorite donut is pumpkin! Apple fritters are a close second, and sour cream! I’d love to try the recipes :)

Kelly October 9, 2013 at 1:04 pm

I absolutely love maple bars and sprinkle donuts are a close second!! Can’t wait to bake up some vegan donuts though as I know the traditional kind aren’t the healthiest :)

Diana Diaz October 9, 2013 at 1:11 pm

These look incredible – I have to make these soon. Can you replace the cane sugar with Maple Syrup?

Thanks!!

Aska October 9, 2013 at 1:12 pm

I’ve never made doughnuts before, but I’ve always wanted to! My favorite doughnut growing up was the maple bar but I haven’t had it in a long time!

Molly October 9, 2013 at 1:12 pm

I love a classic glazed donut :)

Brittany M October 9, 2013 at 1:13 pm

My favorite flavor is Ashley’s sea salt maple donuts! Anything with sea salt on top is delicious.

GM October 9, 2013 at 1:14 pm

I have not eaten a doughnut in what is probably close to a decade, but I loved anything with maple! Could you imagine how amazing a pumpkin spice and maple doughnut would be?

Jamie H October 9, 2013 at 1:14 pm

Mmmm…I love a good cakey donut! Especially the cinnamon ones!!!!

Kendra Broo October 9, 2013 at 1:18 pm

I have not had a doughnut in sooooo long (probably before I went vegan nearly 7 years ago), but I always had a thing for chocolate with sprinkles!! I am so happy you have shared this recipe with us, I can’t wait to again taste the sweet deliciousness of a chocolate doughnut!

My husbands vote – his favorite is the warm cinnamon-sugar kind you find at cider mills in the fall. If only we had a vegan cider mill near us… ;)

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jeanne-Marie October 9, 2013 at 1:19 pm

doughnuts, doughnuts, doughnuts! Who doesn’t love doughnuts!

Daniela October 9, 2013 at 1:20 pm

As a kid I always loved the sprinkle doughnut!

Lauren October 9, 2013 at 1:21 pm

I love chocolate glazed doughnuts. This book looks amazing!

rach October 9, 2013 at 1:21 pm

I once had a pear cardamon donut that was to die for. seriously

Isabelle L. October 9, 2013 at 1:24 pm

My favourite flavor is anything with cinnamon!

Teph October 9, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Any chocolate doughnut with peanut butter!
How sad Latinamerica is not in the list, but no worries :)

Emily October 9, 2013 at 1:27 pm

My favorite are blueberry cake donuts!

Brenda L. October 9, 2013 at 1:28 pm

My favorite is the Bavarian cream donut. Although the tiramasu doughnut sounds interesting!!!

Courtney Humes October 9, 2013 at 1:28 pm

OK, I’ve been meaning to buy a doughnut molds and now I think I will just have to finally do it! Those doughnuts looks so delicious, I want to eat one right through my computer screen! LOL
Would love to win the book so I can try out my new molds!
BTW – chocolate, filled with chocolate fudge, with chocolate frosting all the way!

Nicola Bennett October 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm

Yum Yum! The apple fritter donut sounds amazing…..; )

Caroline October 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm

What a lovely book! I am all over any interesting doughnut flavor combos, so that blackberry basil is something I’d love to try!

Carissa October 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm

I love chocolate cake donuts (making this recipe perfect for me!). I also like any with pb involved!

LizzyB October 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm

I am a sucker for plain cake doughnuts…but chocolate frosted is pretty good as well. Oooh I almost forgot about lemon poppyseed! There are entirely too many flavors to just choose a favorite.

Shannon @ moveeatcreate.com October 9, 2013 at 1:31 pm

I love ALL the doughnuts, but I think my tried and true favorite is a maple bar. Mmmmm.

Natalie October 9, 2013 at 1:31 pm

My favorites are a tie between pumpkin and chocolate, probably depend on the time of year :)

Rebecca October 9, 2013 at 1:34 pm

Crumb doughnuts!

Brynne October 9, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Love Ashley’s Maple Sea Salt Donuts!

Lori Z October 9, 2013 at 1:37 pm

My favorite flavor of doughnut will change depending on the day! With fall weather creeping in I’m thinking of pumpkin spice!

Anu October 9, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Love a classic chocolate glazed!

Brooke October 9, 2013 at 1:37 pm

I need this book (and a doughnut pan) in my life now! Lol…I think my favorite flavor of doughnut is boston cream.

Lu October 9, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Apple Cider spiced donuts!!!!!!! yum!!!

Tracy October 9, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Yum! Pumpkin!

Shelley October 9, 2013 at 1:40 pm

Triple Chocolate sounds good to me.

Laura October 9, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Chocolate and coconut makes my day, anyday!!! This book looks awesome!

Cami October 9, 2013 at 1:42 pm

My favorite flavor is chocolate.

Jessica Noelle Glitterpony October 9, 2013 at 1:43 pm

These look scrumptious! Okay, I gotta know. You’ve shared several doughnut recipes on your blog and I’m curious, which one is your favorite? Or, do you love them all like children and can’t pick a favorite? ;)

Genia October 9, 2013 at 1:44 pm

The book looks great! I just got a doughnut baking tray and will be trying pumpkin doughnuts right away (so I guess that is my current favourite) :)

Chatelaine October 9, 2013 at 1:48 pm

I LOVE doughnuts!!! i’ve refused in the past to buy my own mold because I’d also have to buy new pants but I’m so tempted to change that rule :)

Isaac October 9, 2013 at 1:53 pm

I love classic, old fashioned donuts! Also, any seasonally flavoured ones, like pumpkin or peppermint.

Clizia October 9, 2013 at 1:56 pm

I love pistachio and cranberry donuts from my local farmer’s market!

Erin Mackay October 9, 2013 at 1:56 pm

Chocolate, of course. These recipes look amazing!!

Tanya October 9, 2013 at 1:56 pm

This recipe is the last straw! I’ve had it with drooling over donut recipes and not being able to create them since I am lacking a donut mould. Department store here I come (followed by the grocery store to pick up these ingredients)!

Andrea October 9, 2013 at 1:58 pm

I adore blueberry cake doughnuts and pumpkin doughtnuts (of course!) during this time of year…ok, all year =)

These look amazing!! Can’t wait to try them!!

Patty October 9, 2013 at 1:59 pm

This looks like an amazing book!! I love apple and cinnamon….but I think I have to try your chocolate ones. YUM!!! Thanks for your hard work producing a much needed collection of recipes!!

Molly October 9, 2013 at 1:59 pm

I love donuts but am not super adventurous with different flavours so my go to is usually a chocolate cake donut glazed with chocolate or an apple fritter! I’m not a huge fan of filled donuts – especially not Boston creme or jelly! I would love to win this cookbook! Thanks for hosting an incredible giveaway and Q&A!

Mary Pascall October 9, 2013 at 1:59 pm

It doesn’t get better than chocolate. I’ve never baked anything since transitioning to a plant based lifestyle, but these are calling me softly…… Thanks for this and so, so many other wonderful recipes to enjoy.

jale October 9, 2013 at 2:01 pm

yessssss for my nephews and niece….. they love chocolate caramell…

Caroline October 9, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Hi Ang! I was googling “Baked donuts for everyone” and it looks awesome! These flavors all look good:
Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts
Apple Fritter Doughnuts
Peanut Butter Crunch Doughnuts <—- THIS WOULD BE MY FAVE!!!
Vegan Gooey Chocolate Doughnuts

Enjoy the fall :) I continue to love reading your blog!

Kristen October 9, 2013 at 2:02 pm

I love this! I’ve been dying to get a donut pan for months–now I definitely have to purchase one!
Thanks for sharing!

LaQuosha October 9, 2013 at 2:05 pm

My all time favorite doughnut is old fashion glaze.

Tori L October 9, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Such a fun giveaway; give me doughnuts!

Jill October 9, 2013 at 2:09 pm

I love all doughnuts, but especially glazed blueberry cake doughnuts!

[email protected] October 9, 2013 at 2:11 pm

They sound divine!!! Did you get the full 6 normal and 12 mini’s out of the batter? Did Ash specify an oil or would coconut oil work you reckon?

marissa October 9, 2013 at 2:12 pm

fresh cider donuts!!

Jenn October 9, 2013 at 2:15 pm

What a great cookbook! I love chocolate donuts, so I’ll have to give this recipe a try. :)

Kat October 9, 2013 at 2:16 pm

I love all doughnuts….but I have to say my old favorite is honey crullers!

Andrea Jackson October 9, 2013 at 2:16 pm

YUM, donuts!! I would have to say double chocolate or chocolate glazed :). Angela, I love your blog and ironically follow Ashley’s too!! You ladies rock! This is a fantastic giveaway, thanks :)

Chef Amber Shea October 9, 2013 at 2:16 pm

This book would be the perfect way to convince myself to finally buy a doughnut pan. :)

Carmi October 9, 2013 at 2:18 pm

My oh my! Donuts CAN be in my life!! GF and vegan all in one. It’s a good day:)

Tessa October 9, 2013 at 2:19 pm

Plain donut with chocolate frosting and sprinkles!

Melanie Reames October 9, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Maple Bacon is my favorite followed by anything with candy pieces.

Becky Callan October 9, 2013 at 2:23 pm

Is it okay to substitute vanilla coconut milk in place of unsweetened almond milk?

Katie October 9, 2013 at 2:24 pm

That cookbook looks awesome! I’m going to knock my Paleo friends’ socks off with doughnuts sooner than later!

My favourite doughnut is a honey cruller (do they make those anywhere other than Tim Horton’s??) I usually only have one a year, when I’m stuck in a Canadian airport on a layover or waiting for my luggage.

Cair October 9, 2013 at 2:35 pm

I hate picking favorites with anything, but if they were in front of me today I would take a simple donut with a little maple frosting.

Emily October 9, 2013 at 2:37 pm

How yummy do these look?! I have never run into a doughnut I didn’t like!
Happy Wednesday!

Alex S October 9, 2013 at 2:45 pm

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!!

Averie @ Averie Cooks October 9, 2013 at 2:46 pm

Congrats to Ashley – I think this is the 4th blog in the past 2 days Ive seen her book/recipes on and everyone’s doing such an amazing job and I love the interview. So informative!!

“I worked non-stop to get it finished on time and don’t remember leaving my house very much, except for daily trips to the grocery store, haha.” <— ISN'T that the truth when writing a cookbook :)

Lynne October 9, 2013 at 2:47 pm

Thank you to you and Ashley for this give-away! Would love to win this! Pumpkin donuts-yum!!

Patti October 9, 2013 at 2:48 pm

I can’t WAIT to try making some of these donuts!
I hope there is one similar to crumb cake, since that has been my very favorite donut since I was a little girl! Never cared much for the ” raised” kind of donuts.

Diana Darmonska October 9, 2013 at 2:51 pm

Wow, I want doughnuts right now! :-) These look amazing.
My fave flavor would probably be chocolate coconut. Yum.

Doris Romano October 9, 2013 at 2:51 pm

Once I discovered your pumpkin-spiced donghnuts (http://ohsheglows.com/2011/08/16/mini-cinnamon-sugar-pumpkin-spiced-doughnuts-rosemary-olive-oil-chips/), I never went back to any other kind :)

Simona October 9, 2013 at 2:51 pm

Simple vanilla is my fav!

Lindsay October 9, 2013 at 2:55 pm

Boston crème are my favorite!!

Sorayya October 9, 2013 at 2:56 pm

These sound so good!! I love maple donuts!

char eats greens October 9, 2013 at 2:56 pm

I made maple glazed donuts last month and they, ugh, were terrible. KIDDING!!! They were so good. I think I ate more than 1/2 of the batch to myself!!

Megan October 9, 2013 at 2:58 pm

My favorite would have to be peanut butter and jelly – jelly filled with peanut butter frosting. Yum!

Deborah A October 9, 2013 at 2:58 pm

I have never had a baked donut. I love to bake and would love to try any and all donuts in the book. My husband’s staff always appreciate when I have baked a new batch of whatever and any flavour donuts would be no exception.

Michelle @ The Fresh Direction October 9, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Yum! These look great Angela! I love simple chocolate glazed doughnuts and vanilla sprinkle best – but ready to try some of Ashley’s more unique flavour combos :)

Laura October 9, 2013 at 3:09 pm

I’d be soooo excited to win! Chocolate doughnuts are the best!

Lee October 9, 2013 at 3:11 pm

I think a cinnamon spice donut would be my favorite! Looks like a fabulous book! thanks!

kaila October 9, 2013 at 3:12 pm

This cookbook looks incredible! Chocolate P.B. doughnuts are the best!

sherrie October 9, 2013 at 3:12 pm

I like glazed, and I really like apple fritters. The ones in this cookbook look as if they might even be healthy enough to not feel so bad about eating them! That would be great!

Nora October 9, 2013 at 3:13 pm

Let’s give Dunkin Donuts a run for their money! If only more people knew how possible it is to replicate donuts that are much better for you! Would love this cookbook – thanks for writing it Ashley. Recipe? Peanut butter and jelly donut with a chocolate drizzle on top!

Matt October 9, 2013 at 3:14 pm

I would love this cookbook!

chai-spiced doughnut with a maple glaze

Desiree October 9, 2013 at 3:17 pm

I love blueberry cake doughnuts with a mug of hot chocolate.

Stephanie October 9, 2013 at 3:25 pm

I love the donuts from the apple orchards. Ashley’s apple cider donuts taste just like them… they’re so delicious! Thanks!

Emme October 9, 2013 at 3:27 pm

Mmm, my favorite donut is the black bottom raspberry donut from the Cinnamon Snail. So good!

Melika October 9, 2013 at 3:34 pm

I am incredibly thrilled about this giveaway!! I am just turning vegetarian, and maybe soon vegan, to help get myself in shape! I also know several people who are trying to get healthy so this would be a great way to show off the upsides of having a gluten-free diet! Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to win!

Amy B October 9, 2013 at 3:44 pm

Chocolate of course!

Marie October 9, 2013 at 3:45 pm

I really love maple-glazed donuts…so much so that I accidentally just typed “Maple” up in the name box instead of Marie (apparently they are always on my mind)! Glad I caught it though :)

Amy October 9, 2013 at 3:47 pm

What a great giveaway! Thanks!vAutumn is doughnutty time of year, don’t you think? I think my favorite flavor for doughnuts would have to be maple. Yum!

Christina October 9, 2013 at 3:49 pm

I’ve always been a cinnamon-sugar cake doughnut type of girl.

Taylor October 9, 2013 at 3:51 pm

Anything jelly-filled. Especially if it’s strawberry jelly!

Meghan October 9, 2013 at 3:52 pm

those donuts sound delicious!!

Deborah October 9, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Honey, honey, anything with honey :)

Carina October 9, 2013 at 3:55 pm

I’m a sucker for a lemon doughnut! There is just something about lemon that can be so sweet but tart at the same time :)

Alina October 9, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Chocolate and cinnamon! Yum!

Great giveaway! Thank you.

jen October 9, 2013 at 3:57 pm

pumpkin of course!!

Stephani October 9, 2013 at 4:00 pm

Apple fritter! But those ooey gooey donuts sound pretty amazing!

Sharon W. October 9, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Favorite donut? That’s a tough choice, but I’d have to say right now given its “Fall” (in Florida) I would love to have a pumpkin spice type donut or the carrot cake donut mentioned in the book!

Emily C. October 9, 2013 at 4:02 pm

I like cake donuts with cinnamon sugar. Thanks for hosting and sharing a recipe!

Maria October 9, 2013 at 4:03 pm

Pumpkin spice donuts, especially this time of year!!

Beth Gim October 9, 2013 at 4:08 pm

Chocolate cake donuts are my fave, but a good maple bar is ways appreciated.

Kathleen October 9, 2013 at 4:08 pm

I like cider donuts, especially at this time of year! Thanks.

Maria October 9, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Pumpkin donuts are my favorite!!!

Kristine October 9, 2013 at 4:10 pm

YUMMY!! I can’t wait to make these with the kids! My favorite flavor is definitely chocolate :)

sam October 9, 2013 at 4:13 pm

Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!

Delilah Miranda October 9, 2013 at 4:13 pm

This book looks amazing! I’ve been gluten and dairy free for three years now and I always appreciate a truly delicious gluten free dessert. The apple fritter donut sounds like heaven on earth, (they all sound delectable but I would probably try the apple fritter first).

Lizzy K October 9, 2013 at 4:14 pm

I’m loving ginger this fall!

Ekko October 9, 2013 at 4:23 pm

Wow – this sounds so amazing. I was a fan of Kream filled for the longest time. Now thinking about what might be in the Kream – I would have to try and make my own using coconut cream and I’m sure I would be insanely happy about that. *hint hint * I may have to try this with your Baked Vegan Doughnuts recipe.

Lisa October 9, 2013 at 4:23 pm

Oh my, I need to get myself a donut maker!

Thanks for all your yummy treats, Angela! I’m practically living off all your recipes now :)

P.S. By the way, the chilled double chocolate torte turned out amazing and survived the drive (if you recall my asking you on Facebook a few weeks back about this recipe).

AmyJ October 9, 2013 at 4:26 pm

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this book Angela! My favourite doughnut is/was Tim Horton’s Honey Crueller – so moist, sweet, and such a great texture….mmmm….but since being vegan, I haven’t had one :)

Becca F October 9, 2013 at 4:27 pm

I love apple doughnuts with juicy chunks of apples right in them and rolled in cinnamon sugar

Moriah October 9, 2013 at 4:32 pm

There is a small donut shop in my town called Doughbot and they make the most delicious vegan lemon lavender donut. Probably my fav. YUM!!

Erika October 9, 2013 at 4:32 pm

Yay!! I am so excited for this cookbook and I love the Q&A you did with Ashley!

Val October 9, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Thanks for the giveaway–LOVE anything chocolate!

Xandra ★ October 9, 2013 at 4:35 pm

Anything with sprinkles!
:)

Shannon October 9, 2013 at 4:39 pm

I love cinnamon-raisin bagels :)

Planning on trying this recipe this weekend! Thanks Ashley and Angela!

Shannon October 9, 2013 at 4:40 pm

And by ‘bagel’ I meant ‘doughnut’. Ha!

laura z October 9, 2013 at 4:40 pm

i love an apple cinnamon or a chocolate cake doughnut…yummm

Liz October 9, 2013 at 4:40 pm

my favorite flavor has to be maple doughnuts!

Kim C. October 9, 2013 at 4:42 pm

I love doughnuts that have a lot of warm spices!!

Maddy October 9, 2013 at 4:46 pm

I go for the simples ones like plain with cinnamon sugar or the unglazed sour cream ones. I’ve made a couple of attempts at making baked donuts but they turned out meh. I can’t wait to have a look at this cookbook!

Maddy October 9, 2013 at 5:07 pm

*simple

Chelsea October 9, 2013 at 4:48 pm

I love cake donuts with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles!

Stephanie October 9, 2013 at 4:49 pm

Well, I love anything Chocolate… So some type of chocolate donut, but I have a feeling the donut you just posted will be my new favorite:)

Shannon October 9, 2013 at 4:51 pm

Love the sound of these! My favourite doughnut is anything coconut!

Rachel @ Eat Learn Discover October 9, 2013 at 4:53 pm

I’m a big fan of the simple glazed doughnut, and apple cider doughnuts. On the other hand, I love anything chocolate!

Patty Arnold October 9, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Pinned this recipe and excited to try more. Thanks for the giveaway!

Laura October 9, 2013 at 4:55 pm

Glazed donuts w/ chocolate frosting. Yummm! Although I haven’t had one since going GF. So excited about this cookbook!

C October 9, 2013 at 4:56 pm

I like a plain glazed doughnut dunked into hot coffee. Yum! I do love anything with fall spices though. I’ve been thinking that I need some new measuring spoons, and it would be awesome to win a giveaway on my birthday! :)

Danielle Andolina October 9, 2013 at 4:56 pm

When I was a kid, apple cider doughnuts straight from the apple orchard

sarah @ climbinvegan October 9, 2013 at 5:03 pm

I love love love gingerbread donuts. and I really want this cookbook!!!!!!!

lymieeatingcoconut October 9, 2013 at 5:06 pm

chocolate glazed mmmm

Laura Martin October 9, 2013 at 5:10 pm

Is it a donut or a doughnut? Either way – they are delicious. You and Ashley both create no-fail recipes that I really appreciate!

Dainey October 9, 2013 at 5:16 pm

My favorite doughnut flavor is maple bar!

Ariel October 9, 2013 at 5:19 pm

Blueberry!!!!

Cecilia Walker October 9, 2013 at 5:27 pm

I love glazed old fashioned donuts! That being said, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a dounut and not felt sick to my stomach afterward! Perhaps homemade donuts are just what the doctor ordered?

Bronwyn October 9, 2013 at 5:27 pm

Never met a doughnut I didn’t like! So excited about this book!

Ally October 9, 2013 at 5:39 pm

I can definitely get behind the apple fritter comment. That would probably be my choice as well (:

Joanna October 9, 2013 at 5:39 pm

Apple fritters or anything pumpkin! I can’t wait to try all the recipes!

Amanda October 9, 2013 at 5:41 pm

I love plain ole cake donuts! However, I don’t turn any donut away….thanks!!!

Hannah October 9, 2013 at 5:48 pm

Looks so delicious! I like a classic old-fashioned. Here’s hoping i get to make some! They look amazing

Julie October 9, 2013 at 5:50 pm

My favourite would have to be old fashioned. Such a delicious stand by!

Stephanie Menzo October 9, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Powdered sugar!!!

Natasha October 9, 2013 at 5:57 pm

I want.

Lisa B October 9, 2013 at 6:06 pm

I would love to win this book! I follow’s Ashley’s blog too! I think my favourite would be anything with lemon!

Sheena October 9, 2013 at 6:07 pm

I love crumb donuts and those huge apple fritters!

Angi October 9, 2013 at 6:09 pm

I love coconut donuts :)

Alyse October 9, 2013 at 6:09 pm

Can’t wait to make these for my mom’s birthday!

Mary Seed October 9, 2013 at 6:18 pm

I love anything from Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland. They have an incredible selection of vegan doughnuts including Boston Creme! I think my favorite is peanut butter oreo cookie. YUM.

Kim October 9, 2013 at 6:18 pm

Love your blog & sharing your posts on FB! Love doughnuts of any kind!

Heidi October 9, 2013 at 6:20 pm

I want to win! And my favorite donuts are actually “chinese donuts” or “chinese crullers” which we call you tiao (literally oil stick) and I like dipping them in soy milk (like a chinese version of donuts and coffee lol)

Danielle October 9, 2013 at 6:21 pm

I haven’t had a donut in years! My favourite used to be timmy’s sour cream glazed. I think now, I’d be drawn to a pumpkin or chocolate variety. I would love this cookbook! Ashley’s recipes are always fantastic!

swetha October 9, 2013 at 6:24 pm

Hi Angela,
Thank you for your wonderful blog,peps me up when i am kinda low or feel monotonous with work during the day.have tried a few of your salads which turned out amazing and intending to try more recipes soon.
This cook book sounds amazing!

Alexis October 9, 2013 at 6:25 pm

This is a hard decision, but my favorite flavor doughnut would have to be either blueberry or maple! Even then, I would love to try all of the interesting flavors that this book has to offer!

Jennifer Cimetta October 9, 2013 at 6:31 pm

Congratulations, and much abundance to Ashley on her first cookbook!! That is very exciting!
I don’t have a favourite doughnut but I’m thinking it would be something with TONS cinnamon, walnuts, raisins, hemp, chia, flax, raw cocoa, coconut…and frosted with some creamed honey and coconut oil. YUMMO!
:)

danielle October 9, 2013 at 6:40 pm

This book looks amazing!!

carrie October 9, 2013 at 6:43 pm

These doughnuts look so good. YUM

carah cole October 9, 2013 at 6:45 pm

hmmm…probably a coconut one!

chelsy October 9, 2013 at 6:47 pm

Plain glazed, cinnamon twists, & the occasional glazed cake :)

Laura Bennets October 9, 2013 at 6:49 pm

These doughnuts look amazing.. I cannot wait to bake them this weekend :D

Nathan October 9, 2013 at 6:52 pm

My favorite, especially this time of year, is pumpkin pie spice cake doughnuts.

Courtney October 9, 2013 at 6:55 pm

Love doughnuts and would love to win the cookbook!

Angela McAvity October 9, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Mmmm pumpkin doughnut or carrot doughnut. Maybe a sweet potato doughnut… And for sure plain with cinnamon sugar :)

Amanda October 9, 2013 at 7:00 pm

peanut butter chocolate filled donuts!

Cori October 9, 2013 at 7:07 pm

I want this book so badly!

Noelle October 9, 2013 at 7:14 pm

Blueberry doughnuts are my favorite!

Ingunn October 9, 2013 at 7:18 pm

Apple fritters! I had to stop eating gluten a little over a year ago, so I haven’t had a donut since…sigh.

Natalie October 9, 2013 at 7:21 pm

Before I went vegan, sour-cream glazed used to be my favourite! I have to admit that I haven’t indulged in a donut since, but I think your post is the inspiration I need to cook up a vegan batch.

Liz October 9, 2013 at 7:24 pm

Boston Cream Pie is my favorite! I’m working on making a paleo version – always fun to experiment!

jessica October 9, 2013 at 7:29 pm

There is a vegan donut shop here in Seattle called Mighty-o and they are all amazing!

Christine October 9, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Double chocolate with sprinkles!

Susan Christy October 9, 2013 at 7:30 pm

I like Sour Cream Doughnuts

Veronda McConville October 9, 2013 at 7:32 pm

Can’t wait to make these!!!!

Veronica October 9, 2013 at 7:33 pm

Chocolate doughnuts are my favorite! I love your blog, tried tons of recipes already!

kimmythevegan October 9, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Gluten-free *and* vegan doughnuts? I didn’t realise the combination could exist. Holy crap I’m super excited about this!!!

Katie G October 9, 2013 at 7:41 pm

As a Canadian, I have to go with maple donuts!

Bobbie {the vegan crew} October 9, 2013 at 7:42 pm

I love just about any flavor, so long as it has sprinkles! :)

melissa October 9, 2013 at 7:43 pm

cookies and cream or chocolate. mmm.

Haley October 9, 2013 at 7:43 pm

oh gosh these look so good! as a vegan, i haven’t had a doughnut in months, but im looking forward to trying some! warm apple cider doughnuts, fresh baked at a favorite apple orchard are for sure the best doughnuts out there, though.

Jacqui October 9, 2013 at 7:43 pm

my favorite donut is vanilla creme filled ones!

Ellen October 9, 2013 at 7:46 pm

My favourite doughnut is a good ol’ fashioned glazed! However, the blackberry and basil sounds so intriguing. The sweetness of basil always surprises me. Cherry and basil is one of my favourite flavour combinations, so I bet the berry ‘n basil doughnut is amazing!

Lanna October 9, 2013 at 7:56 pm

These donuts look to die for!! I’d love to learn how to make :)

Nicole October 9, 2013 at 7:58 pm

Mmm donuts! I would love this book!

Andi October 9, 2013 at 7:58 pm

Custard filled or jelly filled – it’s a toss-up between the two.

Katrina October 9, 2013 at 8:05 pm

I love French cruller donuts, but I think any of the ones in this book would be delightful. Love you blog!

Sarah October 9, 2013 at 8:06 pm

plain ol’ glazed!

Liz B October 9, 2013 at 8:10 pm

Red raspberry filled donuts, especially ones from Carol Lee in Blacksburg! Sadly they aren’t vegan, so I haven’t had them in a while.

tiffany October 9, 2013 at 8:13 pm

doughnuts are my biggest weakness! i could never pass one up. my favorite if having to pick is either old fashioned chocolate or a nice blueberry.

Chelsea @ Chelsea's Healthy Kitchen October 9, 2013 at 8:16 pm

Congrats to Ashley on her book!

My favourite kind of donut is the only kind I’ve ever been able to get from a bakery – chocolate glazed donuts from Kelly’s Bake Shop!

Andrea Cole October 9, 2013 at 8:18 pm

Team chocolate all the way!

Alana October 9, 2013 at 8:19 pm

Maple anything! (yumm-o)

Struggling with a recent switch to gluten free. My husband (the kitchen guru in the family) would love this book.

Margaret g October 9, 2013 at 8:20 pm

I really love simple chocolate donuts! Thanks for the chance!

shanna October 9, 2013 at 8:23 pm

I just started loving donuts! My cousin had freshly made ones at her wedding reception and they were some of the tastiest things I’ve ever eaten!

Esther October 9, 2013 at 8:24 pm

I haven’t had a donut in a really long time. I think this cookbook would be able to help me change that. :)

Verhanika October 9, 2013 at 8:29 pm

I love a good cinnamon sugar donut. And at Top Pot here in Seattle, no one makes ’em better!

Rebecca October 9, 2013 at 8:29 pm

pumpkin is my favorite! apple cider is a close second.

Renee October 9, 2013 at 8:31 pm

Boston cream are my fav!!! Love the ooey gooey centre!!

Hillary October 9, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Pumpkin spice doughnuts!

Colleen October 9, 2013 at 8:39 pm

Maple! Mmmmm….

Elaine W October 9, 2013 at 8:40 pm

Love Apple Fritters but in a pinch chocolate donuts will do. These sound yummy! thank you.

Stephanie October 9, 2013 at 8:40 pm

I am dying to get a copy of this book! I live right next to a gourmet doughnut shop and the smell drives me nuts every day! Of course they are not gluten free so I can’t have them :( My favorite doughnut was always a lemon filled!

Hillary October 9, 2013 at 8:41 pm

I’m a classic cake donut with powdered sugar kind of gal!

Allison P October 9, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Yummmm, donuts! My son would say sprinkle flavored ones are his favorite ;) Funny how sprinkles can make anything better!

Allison October 9, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I don’t buy donuts that often, but occasionally like to indulge in a good old Canadian Maple from Tim Hortons! I’d love to bake my own donuts though and Ashley’s recipes look so great!

Barbara October 9, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Pumpkin spice!!!

Kristie October 9, 2013 at 8:44 pm

Love a moist chocolate glazed doughnut! But of course… I’m all about the apple cider doughnuts this time of year. :)

Noel October 9, 2013 at 8:44 pm

I like any kind of doughnut with chocolate. Thanks for the great giveaway!

kaitlyn October 9, 2013 at 8:46 pm

ah i loooovvveeee the chocalate bars with cream filling. ugh! sooo good. but cant have it much cause its so bad for you haha

Leah October 9, 2013 at 8:51 pm

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of the Cinnamon Snail in NYC (awesome vegan food truck), but they have a creme brulee doughnut that is absolutely amazing. While a bit less decadent, Ashley’s book looks entirely delicious!

Kamaldeep Kaur October 9, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Chocolate donuts!!! :D

Marisa October 9, 2013 at 9:01 pm

mmm donuts!!

Randi (laughfrodisiac) October 9, 2013 at 9:03 pm

Thanks for the recipe, Ashley! I can’t wait to make these. Guess I need to get a doughnut pan.

Deb October 9, 2013 at 9:06 pm

I can’t wait to make those chocolate doughnuts for my kids…my favourite though – Apple Fritter.

Lisa P. October 9, 2013 at 9:11 pm

Love chocolate doughnuts!

Hailey October 9, 2013 at 9:21 pm

I don’t know if I eat donuts enough to have a favorite flavor… Maybe I’ll win this book and that will change :) Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Alana October 9, 2013 at 9:22 pm

My favorite donut is anything pumpkin or honey cruller. Those vegan chocolate ones are calling my name however!

Christy S October 9, 2013 at 9:25 pm

Chocolate Cake Doughnuts with Chocolate frosting are my favorites! So this Triple Chocolate Vegan GF Doughnut should be a spectacular substitution! It was so nice of her to give you permission to print it on your website for all of us to try!

Shari DeAbreu October 9, 2013 at 9:27 pm

These look so yummy! Where can I purchase a donut pan?

Kimberly October 9, 2013 at 9:29 pm

Chocolate donuts are definitely my fav!

Becca October 9, 2013 at 9:31 pm

I have to say I looove your website and all of your recipes – they give me so much inspiration for staying on my vegan path:) Especially as a single mom raising a little vegan babe – you are my go-to for times I have no idea what to make and little time to make it in!!
As for fav. donut – definitely glazed old fashioned. I used to eat them all the time as a kid and brings me back to those days!!!

P.S. on a side note…my 16 month old couldn’t get enough of the creamy avocado pasta. Thank you for all you do!!!!

Kate October 9, 2013 at 9:33 pm

The answer is always chocolate!

Kaitlyn October 9, 2013 at 9:36 pm

I would love to have this book! One of my favorite donuts is maple glazed, though I’m sure I’ll find many new favorites in this book. :)

Alex @ Kenzie Life October 9, 2013 at 9:36 pm

Chocolate cake donuts with chocolate frosting and sprinkles (basically the recipe you posted from Ashley’s book!) are by far my favorite!

Sandy October 9, 2013 at 9:39 pm

Baked doughnuts – what a concept! I love an old-fashioned sugar donut!

PS It’s 8:30 pm, but I am just starting to roast a squash now, so I can make your butternut squash smoothie in the morning! :)

Kat October 9, 2013 at 9:49 pm

Yummy! Donuts that are GF and vegan?! I’d love to win a book and try them all!

carol October 9, 2013 at 9:56 pm

Would love to make some gluten free doughnuts for my co worker!

Nataliya M. October 9, 2013 at 10:01 pm

I love anything baked, but try to stay away from things like donuts because I know they’re overloaded with sugar, fat, and white/processed flour. I love to bake and experiment with healhty ingredients. I never thought that I could be making donuts in my kitchen, I thought they’re usually deep fried, and I can’t even think of doing that. Looking forward to trying some doughnut recipes. I have lots of your and Ashley’s recipes bookmarked, and have had lots of success and inspiration as a baker in my little kitchen.

Sydney Reichhardt October 9, 2013 at 10:07 pm

I would love to make the blackberry basil doughnuts!

Giannalisa October 9, 2013 at 10:16 pm

I’ve been reading and making recipes from this blog and sharing the ones that I like (all of them) with my friends — I’m definitely going to try the donuts with my girls who both LOVE anything sweet but know it has to be healthy too :) Thanks for the inspiration as always to eat well and live GREAT!

CarrieD October 9, 2013 at 10:16 pm

My favorite donut is a maple bar. Yum!

Miki October 9, 2013 at 10:20 pm

Mmmm, doughnuts! I’m not sure if it has a name (other than heavenly deliciousness in my mouth) but it’s a rectangular sweet, light cream filled doughnut with powdered sugar on top!

Sarah Morris October 9, 2013 at 10:21 pm

Hi Angela!

I love love love your blog! I’m dying to make donuts and just need to get a pan. I love lemon anything so I would love to try and make a lemon type donut!

Cara October 9, 2013 at 10:22 pm

My favourite donuts are honey glazed hot out of the oven from Lee’s Donuts at Granville Island. So amazing!

Laurence October 9, 2013 at 10:31 pm

Double chocolate is always my favorite :)

Holly Waterfall October 9, 2013 at 10:32 pm

I love bear claws!! Haven’t had one in forever. And I have been eyeing Ashley’s book!! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

Alicia G October 9, 2013 at 10:34 pm

I usually always go for the chocolate ones :)

Cristy October 9, 2013 at 10:35 pm

I have to say a good chocolate donut with chocolate icing really hits the spot. But this cookbook sounds like it has others that could be just as amazing!

Alexandra October 9, 2013 at 11:05 pm

I’ve always loved the classic glazed doughnut from Krispy Kreme, but am so ready for a healthier alternative!

Jennifer October 9, 2013 at 11:23 pm

I always love a donut with chocolate involved!!!

Caitlin October 9, 2013 at 11:29 pm

My favorite flavor is blueberry cake doughnut!

Megan October 9, 2013 at 11:42 pm

I’ve been trying to be gluten-free, so this cookbook would make my month (plus my birthday’s coming up in two weeks!); I’d love to try making and eating a seasonal sort of doughnut–pumpkin spice, or pumpkin pie, or something of the sort. I’ve been craving squashes this year like never before!!

Kasey October 9, 2013 at 11:43 pm

I’ve got to say maple doughnuts are my favorite!!

Cory October 10, 2013 at 12:29 am

I’m from Germany. Does that count? Since it’s so close to the UK :D
I actually really like powdered sugar covered ones.

Jessica DeMarra October 10, 2013 at 12:39 am

My favourite will always be a Boston Creme doughnut. If there is a vegan version that in her cookbook I will be blown away!

Andi October 10, 2013 at 1:09 am

My favorite are chocolate crullers!

Jen October 10, 2013 at 1:18 am

These look delicious! My favourite would be sour cream glazed, but even like a trusty ol’ jelly donut is always great.

Becca Williams October 10, 2013 at 1:20 am

This recipe looks amazing :O!!!
Those rainbow sprinkles are so cute!

My favourite kind of donut you ask?
Well, it’s got the be the honey crueler , which is OF COURSE not vegan when I am, but I MUST gf/veganize this recipe! and make it super airy and moist and fluffy and gooey and beautiful like the Tim Hortons’ Honey Crueler :D! (and yes, I am Canadian, eh ;) )

Julia October 10, 2013 at 1:48 am

I love a good dark chocolate donut…or double chocolate! Anything chocolate is good to me :)

Luz October 10, 2013 at 1:56 am

I love maple glazed donuts!

Melissa October 10, 2013 at 2:03 am

I haven’t really met a doughnut that I didn’t like. But I’d have to say my favorite is a cinnamon cake doughnut with a hot coffee to dunk it in.

Tiffany October 10, 2013 at 3:10 am

This is such a great giveaway! My fav donut growing up was always the honey creuller…I am not sure if it is the same name everywhere but basically it looks like a tractor wheel and is probably the most unhealthy of all donuts – but it is sooooo good!

Lindy October 10, 2013 at 3:17 am

Growing up in Canada (Toronto) I always had doughnuts but since becoming an adult and vegan, and moving to the UK, I can’t remember the last time I have had one. I think I need this book in my life ;)

Alex October 10, 2013 at 3:51 am

now i have to figure out how to get my hands on sweet rice flour.

Anything with chocolate and extra chocolate on top is a winner in my book.

BerryBloomXO October 10, 2013 at 4:00 am

hmmmm… Chocolate… :P
I am trying to learn how to bake more and learning to make healthy recipes would be just perfect! Thank goodness this giveaway is open to UK residents!

http://berrybloomxo.blogspot.co.uk

Meaghan October 10, 2013 at 4:30 am

I use to be huge vanilla with sprinkles kind of doughnut girl. Though I have not had a doughnut in YEARS, I have been dying to get my hands on Ashley’s book so I can rediscover doughnuts again. This time, the healthified versions!
I think though, my new favorite flavour would be anything pumpkin, I’m a sucker for fall flavours but pumpkin is year round for me ;)

pam biddle October 10, 2013 at 4:52 am

who doesnt love cake?!? cant wait to check out the book.
xo+yumminess.
pamcakes

Jennifer October 10, 2013 at 5:48 am

Maple pecan flavour is always a winner for me!
Ashley’s book looks great, I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

Karen October 10, 2013 at 5:50 am

Oh, yum!!! My favorite doughnut to date had a delicious lemon glaze on it– amazing!

Meghan October 10, 2013 at 6:08 am

Maple or honey glazed! Yum!

Madeline October 10, 2013 at 6:15 am

I love all doughnuts equally!

Bonnie October 10, 2013 at 6:21 am

I can hardly wait to try that recipe and order that book (if I don’t win it) ! thanks Angela for telling us about it!

Katelyn J October 10, 2013 at 6:21 am

Earl Grey with lavender cream flavour…AMAZING and from a vegan donut shop in Vancouver

Cara's Healthy Cravings October 10, 2013 at 6:21 am

Great interview!
I would love to sample the carrot cake doughnut from the cookbook, I am a sucker for anything carrot cake.

kris October 10, 2013 at 6:24 am

I would love to win the book! I love too many different ones! Glazed, powered, chocolate frosted, peanut butter filled……ugh! Now I want a doughnut!!!!

Erica October 10, 2013 at 6:24 am

Plain old fashioned glazed….simply good!

Veronique Daoust October 10, 2013 at 6:24 am

YUM! I am so happy for Ashley, I follow her blog and absolutely love her donuts. I am gluten intolerant, so I am extremely grateful to be given the gift of donuts again. There is a cute little bakery near my house that makes S’mores donuts and they have been teasing me for so long. That is definitely my favorite flavor combination.

Jennifer October 10, 2013 at 6:33 am

Orange pistachio! Yummmm. Though I’m very interested in trying the savory donuts in this cookbook; blackberry basil sounds amazing as well as goat cheese and fig- YUM! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Susan zumBrunnen October 10, 2013 at 6:35 am

LOVE the suggestion to prepare the wet and dry separately ahead of time. I have done this for years with dessert soufflés, but never dreamed of doing it with GF doughnuts! My friends in Charlotte, NC will be knocking down my door. I so appreciate you making GF baking fun and easy. Can’t wait to get the book!

Tami Bertelson October 10, 2013 at 6:38 am

Apple Cider Doughnuts.

Jessie Vestner October 10, 2013 at 6:43 am

I have never come across this but I think that a matcha mint chocolate chip would be delicious! I should get to baking.

cami October 10, 2013 at 6:45 am

Would love to win! Those chocolate ones look so good!

Kathryn K October 10, 2013 at 6:47 am

Triple Chocolate Doughnuts would be my favorite!

Amy October 10, 2013 at 6:48 am

White cake doughnuts with white frosting sprinkled with chopped peanuts

suzanne October 10, 2013 at 6:53 am

wow – looks amazing! My favorite so far are your cinnamon sugar pumpkin spice donuts – perfect for this time of year :) Maybe this weekend I will need to make the chocolate and the pumpkin!

Kalyn October 10, 2013 at 6:54 am

I love chocolate donuts!

Lauri October 10, 2013 at 6:58 am

I love just about all of them !

Rhonda R. October 10, 2013 at 7:00 am

I would LOVE to make the Doughnut Stacked Birthday Cake! How clever and fun!!

Trina October 10, 2013 at 7:01 am

Oh my gosh! It’s Karma! My fav donuts are chocolate w/ chocolate frosting! I need to get a donut pan stat!! :)

Diane October 10, 2013 at 7:03 am

Pumpkin donut would be great this time of year!

Denyne October 10, 2013 at 7:04 am

I love a apple donut, the apple fritter sounds yummy.

Natalie October 10, 2013 at 7:06 am

There’s a donut shop down the block from me and they make this delicious Orange, honey pistachio donut. It’s amazing!

Donna October 10, 2013 at 8:40 am

THAT….sounds out-of-this planet delicious…I might just have to attempt to replicate it as I am a bonafide pistachio freak.

paula rothman October 10, 2013 at 7:07 am

triple chocolate all the way!

Crystal October 10, 2013 at 7:07 am

Oh, I love any and all doughnuts, but this time of year, pumpkin spiced!

Brooke October 10, 2013 at 7:09 am

For the love of donuts … I would have to say my favorite is toss up between a glazed blueberry cake or pumpkin cake donut!

Kristin October 10, 2013 at 7:10 am

My family treats ourselves to doughnuts every Sunday. I would love to try a few recipes out of this book. They look amazing! My favorite doughnut is a baked bluberry muffin we get at a local bakery! So yummy and different.

Krystal October 10, 2013 at 7:10 am

Red Velvet although I do want to try maple donuts now, this thread is full of delicious temptation

Allison October 10, 2013 at 7:13 am

This time of year is has to be pumpkin!

Janel M. October 10, 2013 at 7:19 am

I love a good maple bar. Haven’t had one in a few years when I was vegetarian, and haven’t even looked for a vegan one!

Dalores October 10, 2013 at 7:21 am

This would be great! I love apple cinnamon donuts.

Emily October 10, 2013 at 7:24 am

I’m thinking about making some apple cider doughnuts soon!

Cabrina October 10, 2013 at 7:28 am

I love Boston Creme doughnuts, although I haven’t had one in a really long time.

erin October 10, 2013 at 7:30 am

I have never been a huge fan of regular donuts because they always taste so empty and leave me feeling greasy. My favorite regular donut is just a plain donut with chocolate icing, but I think I will be able to find WAY more flavors that I like in this cookbook!

Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats to Ashley!

Sarah R October 10, 2013 at 7:30 am

Oh pick me!! I’d love to try making my own donuts.

I think my favorite donut is the custard filled, chocolate glaze topped donuts. MMM. But I’m toying with going vegan so this book would be AWESOME to have. Not only for myself, but I love to bake so all my friends would love it too, I’m sure. :D

D.E. October 10, 2013 at 7:37 am

It’s been about a decade since I’ve had a doughnut!

I get a craving from time to time and now that I no longer live in NYC, it seems all these gluten free, vegan bakeries are springing up everywhere all over NYC! Trés unfair!
Well, guess I’ll have to take matters into my own hands…

I must attempt to bake a batch before the year’s end.

Mallory E October 10, 2013 at 7:39 am

Pumpkin or Apple Cider sounds pretty good right about now!

Meghan October 10, 2013 at 7:46 am

Apple cider donuts!

Jonna Green October 10, 2013 at 7:55 am

My favorite would be anything spiced, gingerbread/pumpkin or anything with peanut butter or chocolate!!!! Would love to make with my kiddos! Thanks!

Cynthia October 10, 2013 at 7:55 am

I might answer differently at another time of year, but now that it’s fall I have to go with pumpkin spice for my favorite doughnut flavor!

Sarah October 10, 2013 at 7:56 am

We have been progressively going vegan (started vegetarian anyway), but I recently realized my 6 yr old daughter has a gluten intolerance. It’s hard to find gluten free snacks that taste good; so I’m sure she would be thrilled with this book! I’m really interested in the Apple Fritter donuts :-)

Mackenzie Rifkin October 10, 2013 at 7:57 am

I love pumpkin or apple cider doughnuts… especially this time of year!

Alexis October 10, 2013 at 8:00 am

Blueberry and French Cruller! Excited to read the book!

Valerie October 10, 2013 at 8:05 am

Would love to make these for my 16 nieces and nephews who never understand why, being vegan and gluten free, I never have donuts. Time to show them how they can be yummy and healthy!

Jin October 10, 2013 at 8:07 am

My favourite donut is the jelly donut dusted with powdered sugar! mmm. I’m so glad to see Ashley’s book- I’ve been reading her blog for a long time and i’ve always thought her baked donuts were a genius idea!

Betsy F October 10, 2013 at 8:08 am

I have never met a donut I didn’t love, but my favorite is a glazed donut with chocolate icing. Yum!

Amanda October 10, 2013 at 8:10 am

These look AMAZING!!!! :) Can’t wait to try them out. My dad has Celiac disease, so it’ll be fun to make these for him.

Laura October 10, 2013 at 8:13 am

Jessica October 10, 2013 at 8:25 am

What a great idea for a cookbook! This would be the perfect gift for a certain someone in my family.

Also, plain glaze donuts are my favourite. I’m simple that way. :)

Mary Ann October 10, 2013 at 8:27 am

Old fashioned donuts just like my Grandmother made for me are my favorite. Right out of the oil and into a bag of cinnamon sugar and eaten warm. It’s like a taste of heaven!

Monica October 10, 2013 at 8:28 am

These sound amazing!

Monica October 10, 2013 at 8:35 am

What a great cookbook! My favorite donuts are definitely apple cider. Love the tastes of Autumn!

Donna October 10, 2013 at 8:37 am

I am a faithful follower of Ashley’s (and your!!) superlative blogs….I heartily “second” Ashley’s favorite donut nuance as “Apple Fritter Donuts”…as it was ALWAYS my favorite when my Dad took us to our hometown bakery for a treat…along with Maple Bars (is THAT included …donut format…in the book by any chance?!…I also love a good, simple powdered sugar-covered mini-donut or donut holes. The beignets natures here in France are quite similar…Must procure this wonderful book…through “luck-of-the-draw”…or by ordering via the Internet….Thank you for this lovely post (interview & recipe!)

Erin R October 10, 2013 at 8:37 am

I love to get apple cider donuts from the farmers market when they are made fresh. Usually they are still warm and so, so good :)

Chelsea October 10, 2013 at 8:40 am

Hmmm I tried a lemon and poppyseed donut from red rabbit in Austin and it was amazing!

Tania October 10, 2013 at 8:41 am

Oh my, these donuts look amazing! :-)

Nik October 10, 2013 at 8:42 am

Anything glazed! I adore glazed chocolate doughnuts or maybe a savory doughnut? That would be so cool!

Emma October 10, 2013 at 8:43 am

Pumpkin spice!

Chaya October 10, 2013 at 8:46 am

Marissa October 10, 2013 at 8:56 am

Haven’t eaten a doughnut since I used to work at Dunkin Donuts many moons ago (where I tested a lot of doughnuts on a daily basis)

I love holiday doughnuts.. apple cider, pumpkin, gingerbread.. and anything doughy and sticky!

Gigi Simone October 10, 2013 at 8:58 am

Congratulations Ashley on your new book, and all your future endeavours. God bless you always. Thank you Angela for bringing us such wonderful vegan recipes. My favourite flavour is apple cinnamon. Thanks again

Angela October 10, 2013 at 8:59 am

My few attempts at GF baking have been mediocre at best. I would love to bake something that tastes just delicious – these donuts look like they would be amazing. And I really miss donuts.

Georgina October 10, 2013 at 9:04 am

Angela October 10, 2013 at 9:11 am

cricket October 10, 2013 at 9:18 am

Renee October 10, 2013 at 9:36 am

YUM! Can’t wait to try these! Sprinkled donuts are the best : )

nan @ lbddiaries October 10, 2013 at 9:36 am

Chelsie Belyan October 10, 2013 at 9:40 am

Vegan Donuts are on my baking to-do list! I am a lover of all flavours, but a good ol’ honey dip was my childhood go-to. Can’t wait to dive into this cookbook, thanks for sharing!!

Heather October 10, 2013 at 9:56 am

I would be thrilled to add Ashley’s book to my library. Apple Fritter donuts are reminiscent
of the Apple Fritters I enjoyed as a teen in and around the Waterloo Farmer’s Market!

Erika October 10, 2013 at 10:13 am

My favorite doughnut is a classic plan doughnut that has been rolled in sugar – my grandma used to make them when I was young, so they remind me of her and my childhood – a happy place to go :)

Emily L October 10, 2013 at 10:19 am

I love coconut donuts!

Ninu October 10, 2013 at 10:20 am

In this season….Apple Cider doughnuts…heaven…. But wouldn’t say no to your triple chocolate with sprinkles :-)

Emily October 10, 2013 at 10:27 am

I too love Ashley’s blog. Her doughnut recipes are very creative and inspiring. If I had to choose a favorite it would be the maple sea salt doughnut!

Maggie October 10, 2013 at 10:28 am

I love raised donuts. The simplier in flavor the better for me. Give me a nice honey glaze, chocolate glaze or powdered sugar donut any day of the week and I would be one happy girl!

Meredith October 10, 2013 at 10:29 am

Who doesn’t LOVE doughnuts?? :) My favorite flavor is chocolate with yummy frosting…with coffee, of course!

Amanda October 10, 2013 at 10:31 am

Nicole Starker October 10, 2013 at 10:36 am

These look delicious! Loooove donuts!

Mallory October 10, 2013 at 10:39 am

I can’t wait to try this recipe!! I love donuts (when I can find one that is free of all my allergies) and I love chocolate! This cookbook sounds absolutely amazing :)

Mary October 10, 2013 at 10:40 am

I cannot wait to give these a go. The pictures look fabulous!

April Deters October 10, 2013 at 10:40 am

My favorite donut is called a Long John. It’s long, has a custardy filling and topped with chocolate. I haven’t had one since I’ve done vegan though and I really miss them!

Kelsey October 10, 2013 at 10:48 am

oh geesh! now I am going to be convinced to purchase a donut pan! (also the photography in this cook book looks amazing! I would love to get my hands on it!)

Lisa Hochstetler October 10, 2013 at 11:00 am

I love apple cider donuts

Allison October 10, 2013 at 11:09 am

I love anything with sprinkles! I bake a lot of gluten free stuff (because my roommate has celiacs), so I would love to win Ashley’s book! It would be a great addition to our kitchen :)

Cindy October 10, 2013 at 11:13 am

So many donuts and so little time! What a great idea for a cookbook. I guess my favorite donut is any one that doesn’t escape my attempt at snatching it out of my hubby’s reach!

trish October 10, 2013 at 11:23 am

Apple cider! I had NEVER had one until I moved to Wisconsin 6 months ago. They’re to die for!!

patti linnane October 10, 2013 at 11:23 am

Favorite has got to be apple fritter!!!

Belinda October 10, 2013 at 11:24 am

I’ve always liked the simple glazed doughnuts!

Amy October 10, 2013 at 11:26 am

Definitely apple cider doughnuts! The farm where I grew up in Vermont makes the best ones ever. Although I’m sure they aren’t vegan so now I need this book to try and replicate them for myself! :)

Mary Beth October 10, 2013 at 11:27 am

I love being able to make donuts for my family that are healthier! Especially my daughter who has several food allergies, so they must be gluten, dairy, egg, sugar free, which can be challenging but so rewarding to see her enjoying it and being able to eat what everyone else is eating! I like plain or pumpkin and then get creative with the toppings. :)

Nirali October 10, 2013 at 11:31 am

I love any type of chocolate donut! I also love your mini cinnamon sugar pumpkin spiced donuts – I just made them this past weekend….yummy!

stephanie c October 10, 2013 at 11:34 am

Thank you for this! My favorite is Boston Crème, but I haven’t had one in years. Glazed with jelly inside, too! YUM

Btw, I visit your blog every day; it’s terrific!

Patty October 10, 2013 at 11:45 am

who wants doughnuts? I do, I do.

Katie @ 24 Carrot Life October 10, 2013 at 12:01 pm

My classic favorite is a plain glazed donut with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles but I’m really loving the thought of chai donuts for something not so classic.

Sara October 10, 2013 at 12:04 pm

Baked doughnuts are the best!! Chocolate with sprinkles is my fave!

Katie October 10, 2013 at 12:10 pm

I love cinnamon-dusted donuts!! Mmm…
Can’t wait to try this recipe out!!

My favourite doughnut that I have unfortunately been unable to enjoy since going GF is definitely the Maple Dip!! So delicious :) Such a generous giveaway and the book looks amazing!

stephanie October 10, 2013 at 12:54 pm

Pick Me! I LOVE ALL HEALTHY DOUGHNUTS- vegan and gluten free! but I must say chocolate is my favourite!

David Tietz October 10, 2013 at 12:59 pm

Ok I have a silly question can I use Quaker Oats and grind them up into Oat Flour? Is Quaker Oats considered to be Gluten Free? I just want to be sure on that one before I make this for friends who are Gluten Free. Ok Silly question #2 When it calls for Almond meal is that the same as Almond Flour? I love Apple Fritters so I would love to try that recipe in this book. Many thanks for all the great resources you provide on this site. I enjoy all the healthy recipes you provide. Keep up the awsome work!!

Laura October 10, 2013 at 12:59 pm

Chocolate glazed for sure..

Celina October 10, 2013 at 1:00 pm

I will be making these for my friends this weekend! They look delicious!

Ooooo, Bavarian creme filled with chocolate on top!

Crystal October 10, 2013 at 1:05 pm

Made these for breakfast this morning, minus the frosting. They were so incredible!! I’m also always on the lookout for gluten free items that don’t rely on gums, so this recipe was perfect. The doughnuts reminded me of a brownie, with the edges having that slight crispy/chewiness. Thank you for posting the recipe and I can’t wait to visit the blog and check out the book for more recipes!!

Anne-Marie October 10, 2013 at 1:08 pm

Hi there! I’m a big fan of your website..keep up the good work and recipes :-) My fave doughnut: chocolate of course!!

Dana October 10, 2013 at 1:16 pm

I love homemade donuts and this cookbook sounds amazing!

Lizzie October 10, 2013 at 1:32 pm

I want to try the blackberry basil! I will need to bring in the basil plants before it frosts, why not put it in a doughnut? Seriously, can you think of ANY reasons? Me neither.

Sarah October 10, 2013 at 1:33 pm

These look great! My favorite has to be a simple cinnamon and sugar donut, especially this time of year with a big glass of apple cider. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Summer October 10, 2013 at 1:35 pm

Plain glazed yeast donut. Yum.

Robyn October 10, 2013 at 1:40 pm

These look incredible! I just shared the link with all my friends looking to reduce gluten and refined sugar. Thanks for sharing!

Chelsea Dodman October 10, 2013 at 1:41 pm

I am a chocolate girl through and through, but for doughnuts, maple is irresistible. I may have to make a pumpkin doughnut with maple glaze. And chocolate chips? Just because. ;)

Shari W October 10, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Two of my favorite bloggers in one post – yay! It is so hard to pick a favorite – but currently, I’d go with carrot cake. (or anything pumpkin-y!!) Congrats to Ashley on her book! And hang in there Angela – yours will be here before you know it!

Magen October 10, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Nothing beats an apple cider donut! It tastes like autumn.

Kirsten October 10, 2013 at 1:49 pm

Yummy! What a nice change, I can have donuts again :)

Though I normally choose chocolate for my treats, I can’t resist blueberry cake donuts! YUM

Lindsey October 10, 2013 at 2:27 pm

I had a chai doughnut once… heaven

kim turner October 10, 2013 at 2:27 pm

I love any kind of donuts with filling. The best would be some kind of lemon base filling.

allie October 10, 2013 at 2:31 pm

My favorite flavor of donut is lemon filled!

Anna October 10, 2013 at 2:50 pm

Sunday morning has become donut morning thanks to my hubby..my granddaughter looks forward to it. But now I can feel a little better about the whole thing with this cookbook available. Thanks so much Ashley!

I love apple cider donuts!

Laura October 10, 2013 at 3:12 pm

I’d love to win this! Looks awesome. My favorite is really that apple cider donut I get once a year at the orchard where we pick local apples. Maybe it’s just because they serve it hot…

Ilene October 10, 2013 at 3:13 pm

I LOVE doughnuts!!! My favs are apple fritters, glazed, and little doughnut balls (munchkins) :)

Cindy October 10, 2013 at 3:21 pm

Coconut!!!

Elke Romer October 10, 2013 at 3:23 pm

Hypothetically speaking, my favorite donut would be a Key Lime donut but I have yet to find one. Best of luck with the book! I am going to try the Triple Chocolate donuts out on my husband who is a regular donut (meaning the unhealthy version) junkie. This should get him eating a little healthier!!

Elisabeth October 10, 2013 at 3:31 pm

I love sprinkle donuts!

Ruth October 10, 2013 at 3:39 pm

These doughnuts look super yummy! I would love to win a copy of the cookbook. My favorite flavor of doughnuts is chocolate, of course.

Wow, this book looks amazing! Cake doughnuts are my fave.

Hannah October 10, 2013 at 4:29 pm

I love all doughnuts, but I think crullers are my favorite. Looks like a wonderful book!

Heather October 10, 2013 at 4:34 pm

I would have to say chocolate. I showed my girls the website picture and they said you have to make this right now!!! I need this book. I have a donut pan already.

mandy October 10, 2013 at 4:35 pm

chocolate donuts

Kristi October 10, 2013 at 4:40 pm

Pumpkin donuts. I love experimenting with new baked donuts recipes.

Sarah October 10, 2013 at 4:41 pm

Honey dip or sour cream glazed :) I’d love another dessert recipe book to add to my collection!

Bridget Kerans October 10, 2013 at 4:43 pm

I’d loved a cookbook, even if my favorite is boring…the plain old doughnut for dunking in coffee! :)

Emily October 10, 2013 at 4:51 pm

A good jelly donut is pretty darn hard to beat.

Debbie October 10, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Yum.

Diane October 10, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Yum!!! Chocolate for sure!!!

Andrea October 10, 2013 at 5:05 pm

Love anything chocolate, so it would have to be a chocolate donut…glazed of course!
Just need Ashley’s cookbook to get started ;)

Lindsay October 10, 2013 at 5:06 pm

Oh. Ridiculously. Yummy.
Pumpkin doughnuts are the best!!

Cathy October 10, 2013 at 5:10 pm

My favorite flavor doughnut, of course is chocolate with chocolate frosting. I can’t wait to make this recipe. Yum! Thanks for the chance to win the cookbook!

Krista October 10, 2013 at 5:21 pm

yummy, mine would be anything chocolate and peanut butter. If could combine the two that would be great.

Ashley October 10, 2013 at 5:29 pm

Oh my gosh how do you pick? I am a purist at heart, though, so I think a vanilla donut with chocolate icing and sprinkles would be my fave. For now. :)

Kristin October 10, 2013 at 5:44 pm

Just days ago I was mourning the loss of my favorite apple cider donuts after being told I have an auto immune condition and should eliminate gluten. You can guess how excited I was to see this post!!!!

Tami Vigil October 10, 2013 at 5:54 pm

Chocolate glazed old fashion. been years :)

Claire October 10, 2013 at 5:55 pm

I have been making donuts for a while now and have been experimenting with many different flour combos (I am gluten, yeast, egg, dairy, nut intolerant so it proves to be a challenge). It is exciting to see her book is such a hit–I also love her blog! Thanks for posting the recipe, and for all of your recipes!

Paulette October 10, 2013 at 5:57 pm

Loved the cookbook. Guilt-free desserts. I’m in.

Kayla October 10, 2013 at 5:57 pm

I loved baked pumpkin donuts! Here blackberry basil and carrot cake recipes sound to die for though. I would love to win a copy of this cookbook!

Kerry October 10, 2013 at 6:07 pm

Maple glazed! So good.

Rebecca October 10, 2013 at 6:14 pm

I’ve baked some doughnuts from Ashley’s blog before, and I LOVED the chocolate peanut butter ones :) can’t wait for this cookbook!

Jennifer October 10, 2013 at 6:14 pm

These look delish! I can’t wait to try them out!!
My fav would be a chocolate doughnut with a peanut butter frost!

Marybeth October 10, 2013 at 6:27 pm

Fried doughnuts give me a terrible stomachache. Cant wait to try these. Use to love apple fritters as a kid.

I’m totally doughnut crazy right now, I would love a copy of that book!

Stacy Hartmann October 10, 2013 at 6:57 pm

I must try these ASAP!

Carol October 10, 2013 at 6:58 pm

I can’t wait to make this recipe for my non-vegan husband who loves doughnuts, a very healthy and delicious option. Thanks and congrats!

Melissa C October 10, 2013 at 7:00 pm

I love all doughnuts, but if I have to pick one I would have to say pumpkin is my favorite!

Erica C October 10, 2013 at 7:02 pm

all doughnuts! haha. But really I have so many faves, the only ones I don’t really care for are jelly filled doughnuts. Other than that I am game for any flavor.

Sara October 10, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Fun (and delicious) giveaway! Despite all the crazy flavors out there, plain glazed donuts have always been my fave!

Michelle October 10, 2013 at 7:11 pm

So Scrumptious! Honey glazed are my favourite donuts.

Kailee Larson October 10, 2013 at 7:16 pm

I am totally trying these for brunch this weekend!!! Thanks!

EmB October 10, 2013 at 7:29 pm

My favourite doughnuts are my mom’s: orange flavored with some fruit jam in the middle!

Michaela October 10, 2013 at 7:31 pm

Ooh I love chocolate frosted!

Mona October 10, 2013 at 7:38 pm

Cake donuts are my favorite! This book looks amazing!

Chelsea October 10, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting!

Cara October 10, 2013 at 7:42 pm

I would love to give a copy of this book to my cousin for her young son with celiac. It’s so amazing how much people have made gluten-free eating less difficult and more delicious!

Jill October 10, 2013 at 7:43 pm

This cookbook sounds great…thanks for sharing one of the recipes! My favourite donut flavour is chocolate glazed….

Kim October 10, 2013 at 7:49 pm

I’m a chocolate frosted girl! My mouth is watering with that picture. Thanks!!

Joy October 10, 2013 at 7:53 pm

I looove “creme”-filled varieties, but also pumpkin, or really, any vegan gf donut. :) I bought donut pans recently, and this is the perfect thing to test them out!

Urban Wife October 10, 2013 at 8:04 pm

I love chocolate donuts with chocolate glaze!

Catherine October 10, 2013 at 8:05 pm

It’s my mother’s birthday this weekend as well as a co-workers and these doughnuts would make the perfect birthday treats!! Great timing with this post. and my favorite kind of doughnuts are the ones with sprinkles; sprinkles just make everything happier :)

Yafa October 10, 2013 at 8:12 pm

I am not sure if plain cake donuts are considered a flavor!, but if not, my next favorite donut has to be chocolate.
This looks like a good recipe for when my book group is here with one dairy free person and one gluten free person. I always make something that everyone can eat so they feel included.

Sarah October 10, 2013 at 8:14 pm

I am loving that she doesnt use xanthan gum! I have come up with pizza crust and other recipes for my family, mostly because the store bought stuff is mostly starch and i wanted to stay away from that. The four flours you mention her using are all staples for me. Id love to win this book. Im sure my kids would love it too!

Devin D October 10, 2013 at 8:24 pm

My all time favourite was sour cream glazed from Tim Hortons before I went vegan!

Sherry October 10, 2013 at 8:26 pm

My favorite flavour is double chocolate – might just need to try this one out

Lauren October 10, 2013 at 8:58 pm

I love fresh apple cider cake donuts from our local orchard. So good!

Christy Bushman October 10, 2013 at 8:58 pm

These doughnuts sound SOOOO delicious! I can’t wait to try them! Especially craving pumpkin flavors!!!!

Maxine M October 10, 2013 at 9:39 pm

Chocolate and apple fritters are my favorite…

Hefeden October 10, 2013 at 9:41 pm

I’ve had excellent luck with every recipe I’ve made from your site. Thank you so much! I’m excited to try these doughnuts as chocolate is definitely my favorite. My kids convinced me to order a doughnut pan so we’ll be trying them in a few days. Can’t wait!

Michelle October 10, 2013 at 9:47 pm

This book looks wonderful! Favorite donut…hard to say but a good glazed cake donut
is awesome. Apple Fritters are up there too.

Kentuckers October 10, 2013 at 9:49 pm

I love donuts and can’t wait to try these.My favorite flavor is Boston cream pie.I’m going to try to make a vegan cream.Go donuts!!!!!

donuts October 10, 2013 at 9:56 pm

I really like maple-chocolate donuts. I have been trying to find new flavors of donuts. I do like cherry fritters though.

Becky October 10, 2013 at 10:07 pm

Yum yum yum! I love chocolate donuts!

Carrie October 10, 2013 at 10:17 pm

Oh Chocolate cake donuts are definitely my favorite! What a fun giveaway! Thanks!

Madeline October 10, 2013 at 10:20 pm

Any book you endorse must have delicious recipes! I personally always loved chocolate long john doughnuts :)

Lauryn Linley October 10, 2013 at 11:11 pm

I looooove anything pumpkin flavored…pumpkin doughnuts rock!

Sarah October 10, 2013 at 11:17 pm

chocolate cake and cinnamon crumb!

Nikki October 10, 2013 at 11:53 pm

I am looking forward to trying donuts.

Maria @ Little Miss Cornucopia October 11, 2013 at 12:06 am

i’ve always been a fan of plain, old-fashioned original donuts.

shannonc October 11, 2013 at 12:11 am

I love maple bars, but I have not had a donut in a long time. I don’t like how I feel afterwards. If I could pick a cake one, it would be like a muffin, or pumpkin donuts with cinnamon. Yum!

Chelsea October 11, 2013 at 12:13 am

I’m a fan of the basic glazed doughnut! I haven’t had any donuts since going vegan though :(

Erin Creagh October 11, 2013 at 12:33 am

Vanilla dip… with sprinkles of course.

carri. October 11, 2013 at 12:48 am

warm. cinnamon sugar!

Chelsea October 11, 2013 at 1:35 am

I love Ashley and ALL of the recipes I’ve made from her website have been a HUGE success!! So excited for this giveaway!

Kristen October 11, 2013 at 1:38 am

Yum! I would love to try the apple fritter donut!

Tanya October 11, 2013 at 2:48 am

Oh goodness! Apple fritter…. Mmmmmm… I love apples and pretty much everything that has to do with an apple….

Caroline October 11, 2013 at 4:32 am

I love any kind of ‘sprinkle donut’!

emmy gee October 11, 2013 at 5:35 am

My fav is the old fashion!!! Plain and simple. Recently started to looked for gluten-free recipes due to health. Wow what a timely giveaway!! Love your blog. Thank you for your inspirations!!! EmmyGee

Miss Irina October 11, 2013 at 6:19 am

I would love to win this book! I have a doughnut pan that needs to be put to good use…

Chrissy Summers October 11, 2013 at 6:41 am

My favourite doughnut is definitely chocolate… there’s nothing better than dunking it in a cup of hot chocolate! Can you say chocolate induced coma?! YUM :D

The Peace Patch October 11, 2013 at 6:58 am

I love it when recipes happen by accident. :)

Melisa October 11, 2013 at 7:04 am

I’m from New England and it is all about apple and maple for me!

Shannon October 11, 2013 at 7:14 am

I just bought a doughnut pan a few weeks ago and I’ve been scouring the web for the perfect recipe to christen the pan, I think this might be it (after I restock some of my gluten free flours). As for my favorite flavor, I just recently decided (admitted!) that I LIKE doughnuts. For the longest time it was the one baked I could consistently turn my nose up to. If I had to go with a flavor combo though, I’d probably go for banana- pb-cinnamon. Or maybe a raspberry almond if I’m feeling fancy.

Mary Kate October 11, 2013 at 7:14 am

I really love a real Bismarck — jam inside, powdered sugar outside — but haven’t been able to make one I can eat yet. My standby tends to be chocolate doughnuts with powdered sugar, but I think I’ll try this recipe this weekend!

SP October 11, 2013 at 8:25 am

I miss sour-cream glazed donuts since going vegan. I hope there’s a recipe that tastes like it!

Franny October 11, 2013 at 9:05 am

I once had mini earl gray tea doughnuts at a sustainability festival in Vancouver! Baking doughnuts is such a good idea and I can’t wait to try this recipe.

Hayley October 11, 2013 at 9:06 am

I have to say, I looove apple cinnamon from the bottom of my heart.

It’d be nice to be able to make a good-for-you alternative and add a cookbook to my growing hope chest!

Rajvinder Kaur October 11, 2013 at 9:13 am

Chocolate glazed, pumpkin, cinnamon… :)

Julie October 11, 2013 at 9:30 am

These chocolate doughnuts look divine!!! I think I would love some sort of carrot cake doughnut flavor too but I can never go wrong with chocolate. Can’t wait to make these!

Jessica October 11, 2013 at 9:33 am

I think its time to try baking some donuts!!! :)

Cait October 11, 2013 at 9:41 am

I would LOVE a copy! Doughnuts are the things I miss most since going gluten free. ALL THE DOUGHNUTS ARE THE BEST FLAVOR

Sarah Lee October 11, 2013 at 9:45 am

Maple doughnuts are delicious!

Stephanie October 11, 2013 at 9:49 am

Love doughnuts! Right now loving any fall flavor like pumpkin or apple! Thanks for both of your amazing blogs & recipes! Both have made me a better cook & healthier

Erica October 11, 2013 at 10:11 am

Boston Cream!

lori October 11, 2013 at 10:45 am

My son can’t eat gluten or dairy and I’d love to try to make donuts for him! Thanks! Lori

Melanie October 11, 2013 at 11:58 am

How do you pick one favorite donut? If I have to I will say the apple fritter donut sounds devine with fresh fall apples! Happy Thanksgiving this weekend.

Teri Sundine October 11, 2013 at 12:41 pm

What is sweet rice flour? Looks yummy.

Laura Zoulek October 11, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Is there any other flavor than CHOCOLATE? I don’t think so.
