Drop Dead Recipes- “The Simpsons” Donuts
This month’s recipe for Drop Dead Clothing has been released and I’m so excited about it. In case you didn’t know, Drop Dead Clothing has recently released a new collection, and it happens to be an Itchy & Scratchy collaboration. I may not be the hugest Simpsons fan in the world, but I can appreciate greatness when I see it, and this is awesome! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these items!
To go along with the new collection, I had to make something Simpsons themed. Of course, the first thing that came to mind was Homer Simpson’s favourite donut. I searched high and low, all over Auckland for a donut pan…could I find one? Nope. Thankfully I have wonderful parents that were willing to buy me one from Canada (where they are everywhere) and ship it to New Zealand. If you can’t go through all that trouble, these can easily be made in muffin tins, just bake them longer, until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
These donuts are not the usual Koko’s Kitchen food. Yes, they are vegan, but they use white flour- not one of my ideal ingredients. I did what I could to make them more my style, by using unsweetened applesauce, flax seeds, unrefined sugar, and almond milk in them. I’ve even added a healthier icing option, where you can opt to blend frozen strawberries into the glaze for a natural pink hue (and a nice strawberry flavour!) Regardless, I enjoyed them very much, and they were gone within the day…oops! How can you resist these little beauties!?
