This recipe makes 6 donut-shaped cakes.
Cinnamoroll Donut Ingredients
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 t baking powder
- 1 t cinnamon
- ¼ t nutmeg
- ¼ t salt
- 1 egg replacer (I use Ener-G)
- 5 oz almond milk (or sub any non-dairy milk)
- 1 T sunflower oil (or sub any vegetable oil)
- 1 t vanilla extract
Cinnamoroll Donut Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Whisk the dry ingredients together (the first 6 ingredients).
Whisk the wet ingredients together (the last 4 ingredients).
Lightly oil a donut pan.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry, but only until you don’t see any visible flour (don’t overmix).
Spoon the batter into the donut pan.
Bake at 350° for 20 minutes (or for 12 minutes if they’re mini donuts).
Cool for 15 minutes before carefully removing from pan with a silicone spatula.
White Chocolate Coating Ingredients
- 4 oz cacao butter (food-grade)
- 1-2 c organic powdered sugar (only use as much as you need to achieve a piping consistency)
White Chocolate Coating Directions
Melt the cacao butter in a small saucepan on low heat.
Remove the pan from heat once it’s a liquid.
Whisk in sifted powdered sugar a quarter cup at a time.
Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a small round writing tip once the white chocolate is thick enough to pipe.
Draw at least 12 ears on a parchment-paper-covered cutting board with piping bag. I usually draw a few more than I will need in case some break.
Transfer the ears to the freezer to harden. Remove them only when they have become stiff (see picture below).
Pipe the remaining white chocolate onto the tops of the donuts and let sit.
Cinnamoroll Facial Features Ingredients
- light blue decorating icing (or you can make your own blue buttercream frosting like I did)
- pink edible glitter or cake sparkles
Cinnamoroll Facial Features Directions
Draw the eyes and mouth with blue icing on all 6 donuts.
Add cheeks by dabbing edible glitter or cake sparkles on with your finger. You can also use pink decorating icing or pink sprinkles for the cheeks, but I used pink cake sparkles from Wilton.
Cut slits into each side of the donuts where you want to insert the ears.
Remove the ears from the freezer. You have to work quickly on this step in order to keep the ears from melting. If they start to melt, I suggest returning them to the freezer for a minute or 2 in between donuts.
