Sunflower donuts! Yep, you heard that right! I'm taking my SNICKERS donuts recipe and transforming it into a delicious nut-free alternative.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons whole milk at room temperature
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/4 cup sunflower butter at room temperature
  • sunflower seeds (be sure to use 100% nut-free sunflower seeds)
  • caramel sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, & salt in bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, slowly mix together milk, egg, vanilla, & oil.
  4. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients & mix until just combined.
  5. Transfer batter into your prepared donut pan(s).
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Once out of the oven, let cool for 10 minutes in donut pan before moving to wire rack.
  8. In another bowl, mix together marshmallow fluff & sunflower butter until smooth.
  9. Spread generous amounts of topping onto each donut.
  10. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds.
  11. Drizzle with caramel sauce.

Notes

  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
