Vegan Biscoff Donuts

You’re going to LOVE these cinnamon-flavored vegan Biscoff donuts with frosting to match! Baked and not fried, they are light and fluffy while also a sweet, indulgent treat. Serve them at parties, give them as gifts or have them as an after-dinner dessert!

Eggless Biscoff Donuts

Do any other vegans get overly excited when they find another accidentally vegan food? And eat it all in one go? No? Just me?

When I first went vegan, it took me quite a while to get to grips with which “junk foods” were okay for me to eat and which were not. Much to my delight, I discovered that Lotus Biscoff biscuits AND their caramelized spread were both on the “yes” list because neither contains any animal products! Yipee!

Of course, you can just eat these two delicious things as they are (Biscoff spread with a spoon straight from the jar, anyone?) but there are SO many other delicious desserts you can make. I’ve made quite the collection of Biscoff desserts on my blog since I wrote this post, so I figured I would come back and update it.

I had a look online and there were many recipes for Biscoff donuts but not as many for a vegan-friendly version. I had a very exact image of how I wanted my final donut to look, and none of these recipes matched that. So, I decided to take it upon myself to create the vegan donut of my dreams.

These vegan Biscoff donuts are:

  • Light
  • Cinnamon-y
  • Cakey
  • Sweet
  • Easy
  • Indulgent
  • A treat to look at!

Baked, not fried

I wanted my donuts to be light and cakey, not heavy and dense. This is purely because the heaviness is something that has always put me off eating donuts in the past. To achieve this, I used a slightly adjusted vegan cake recipe to make the batter and decided to bake them, rather than fry them in oil.

My kitchen is also relatively small and I didn’t fancy messing around with hot oil. I don’t really fry anything other than pancakes so I decided that baking them would be my best option. If you would like a fried donut recipe, check out this post.

Ingredients and equipment

  • A donut pan. I purchased my donut pans from Amazon and they were totally worth the money because I’ve been making donuts constantly ever since. And if you bake donuts instead of frying them, that totally makes them healthy… amirite? For real though, using a donut pan makes preparation and clean up way quicker! I’d recommend a silicone one for ease.
  • Plain flour. For structure. As I said, these donuts are more cake-like so I didn’t use yeast in my recipe, just flour and raising agent!
  • Baking powder. To help the donuts rise and become fluffy.
  • Cinnamon. To complement the cinnamon flavor from the Biscoff frosting, be sure to add a little cinnamon powder to the donut batter too. This is one thing that I do not recommend omitting. The subtle spice contrasts so well with the sweetness and I just looove it!
  • Sugar. I used caster sugar for this recipe.
  • Dairy-free margarine. I recommend using margarine here, not the kind of vegan butter that comes as a block. It contains less water and will result in drier donuts.
  • Soy milk. I recommend using unsweetened soy milk for best results. I have not tested this recipe with any other kind of plant-based milk so cannot say if it will work as well as the soy milk.
  • Vanilla extract. For additional flavour.
  • Biscoff icing. A mix of icing sugar, soy milk and Biscoff spread!
  • Biscoff biscuits. These are for decoration on top. You can crush them into crumbs if you prefer.

The ingredients list may look long but these are super easy to make and there are no wildly unusual ingredients in there. Biscoff spread is widely available in UK stores and online if you’re elsewhere in the world.

How to make vegan Biscoff donuts

Step 1:

Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F and have two 6-hole silicone donut pans to hand.

Step 2:

In a large bowl, mix together 200g of plain flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon and 150g of caster sugar.

Step 3:

Next, add 60g of melted vegan margarine, 200ml of soy milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix well until you have a smooth batter.

Step 4:

Divide the batter between 10 of the donut holes and bake for 20-25 minutes. You’ll know they are ready when they’re golden brown on top and a toothpick through the centre comes out clean.

Let the donuts cool completely before removing them from the pan.

Step 5:

Prepare the icing by mixing 5 tablespoons of smooth Biscoff spread with 5 tablespoons of soy milk and 1 tablespoon of icing sugar. Spread it on top of the cooled donuts.

Step 6:

Top each donut with a Biscoff biscuit (or biscuit crumbs) and enjoy!

These look delicious and I can't wait to make them! Would it be ok for me to make the doughnuts the night before, and then decorate in the morning? If so, what is the best way to store them? Thank you :)

Hi Serena! Yes, you can just store them in an airtight container and keep them at room temperature :)

Thank you so much for this recipe!! They're so delicious and so quick to make. I had to double everything the second time I made them because the first batch went so quickly (in less than 24h 😅)!
