Vegan Gooey Chocolate Doughnuts (& A Giveaway!)
Don’t you just kind of wish this was in front of you right now?
Because I kind of do.
I am seriously mad at myself that I waited so long to share these with you guys. Like a whole four days or so. Now, looking through these pictures they are all I want to smell baking in the oven. The smell alone is reason to make them. It is so warm, cozy, comforting and fall. Cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and butter. Just reminds me of the holidays.
Speaking of which, I am so not ready for.
How is it that Christmas is in eighty days (I know this because I have not one, but two Christmas countdowns on my computer)? Yes, I am a little obsessed, but still not ready to start thinking about Christmas. I just want to enjoy Halloween and Thanksgiving first, and definitely all the pumpkin I can get my hands on. Somehow though, other than these easy as ever chocolate chip pumpkin cookie bars, this is the only other recipe that I have photographed with pumpkin!
So crazy, because pumpkin is one of my favorites, but there are just so many awesome fall flavors. I want to show you guys them all but I am finding that there is just simply not enough days. Not enough days to show you guys all the fall foods I am dreaming up in my head. SO many that I actually have a hard time choosing what is best to show you.
It’s such a rough life over here.
Let’s talk dutch babies.
I grew up with dutch babies. My mom is a freak for them, my grandma is a pro at making them and oh my gosh when they come out of the oven it is a total awe moment.
They are huge and puffy and just gorgeous.
But it only lasts for like 30 seconds to a minute.
FYI, that is just too short for, slow as a turtle, me to snap a good photo. It just did not happen.
But you get the idea! They are one incredibly huge puffy pancake. Except these dutch babies have a GIANT swirl of cinnamon, sugar and butter. Just like everyone’s favorite cinnamon buns. So amazing.
Plus, they are so much easier than a cinnamon roll. No rising, rolling and more rising. Just blend, pour, swirl, bake, drizzle and devour all in thirty minutes! I used mini skillets for these, but feel free to use a ten or twelve-inch cast iron skillet. They all work great, but the mini skillets were kind of fun. Just sayin.

Oh and yeah, and around here they are of course studded with chocolate chips. What a sweet way to start the day!
So delicious! My 3 boys love this and want it to be our new traditional Christmas Breakfast!
Hi! Thinking of trying this tomorrow. Wondering if I don’t use pumpkin if I would need something to substitute it?
Yes, you will need to replace the pumpkin with something. I have not tested this recipe without it. I hope you love them! xTieghan
If i put all the batter in a larger cast iron skillet would it still work?
Yes, that will work. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan
These are awesome…but they did not rise. Wondering what I did wrong. Used glass pie plates, adjusted the temp down 25 degrees. Fresh pumpkin not canned. New oven still has me starting from scratch. Any ideas?
So sorry about this, I would highly recommend cast iron skillets for these. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan
I just tried making this. I think the directions could be improved to explain you need to act quickly once the pan is hot and the eggs have been mixed but you’ll need the cinnamon swirl mix ready to go. Also in the first set of ingredients it calls for 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon plus more for sprinkling and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract But those are never mentioned in the directions. Do they get added to the batter?
Sorry for the confusion, but everything is listed in the directions. The cinnamon gets added with the butter and brown sugar, the vanilla gets added to the frosting. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan
Thank you for this.. Just love it! 🙂
Thank you Sandra! xTieghan
Just made this and I don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything so great! Yummmmmm! Love your creative combinations!
Thank you so much Josae!
I am not a big fan of chocolate could I leave it out? Would it change anything?
Yes, you can leave out the chocolate. Nothing will change. Hope you love this!
