Cinco de Mayo recipe: Vegan baked margarita donuts

vegan_donutsII

Ever since we bought a donut pan we’ve been looking for excuses to make donuts and with Cinco de Mayo coming up, margarita donuts seemed like the obvious choice! Donuts are always a hit, tequila is always a hit, so what could be better? These donuts would be great to serve at a cocktail party or to eat for breakfast when somebody tells you it’s too early for tequila, because it’s never too early for tequila.

Recipe Notes

Recipe adapted from Vegan Yum Yum (one of our fave cookbooks). If you don't have a donut pan (get one!) then you could make these into cupcakes (you might need to adjust the cooking time slightly).
