Matcha Brioche Sugar Donuts - How To Make Vegan Fried Yeast Donuts | Delia.v Life
Anyone craving for some vegan fried yeast donuts? Cos we are! So we decided to make some. These fluffy donuts are so easy to make and taste delicious on its own. But to spice things up even more, we are filling it with creme patisserie and coating them generously with acai sugar. Soft, creamy and sweet with a slightly crispy surface, these donuts are perfect for a quick pick me up! Just check out the texture in the picture above and you will know we aren't kidding at all!
If there is one sentence to describe these donuts it would be "Small in size, big in flavour". First, you would taste the sweet, crunchy acai sugar which leaves a slight tartness on your tastebuds. Then, you would taste the rich and complex aroma of matcha which would bring you straight to matcha heaven. No, the mouthgasm doesn't ends there...the vanilla creme patisserie ties all the complex flavours and texture together creating this explosion of sweet, alluring, creaminess and fluffiness. One of the common side effects of eating these is being mind blown because your brain may get confused how these two superfoods are actually so compatible. A word of advice here, just savour every bite of this freshly fried donuts first and think later. They are best served warm~
If you find the creme patisserie familiar, that's because it was also featured in our Mango Coconut Tart Recipe! Before you start throwing a vegan fit, no we don't think its compulsory to fill the donuts with creme patisserie. In other words, they already taste amazing freshly fried and coated in sugar! The creme patisserie is just a cherry on top so if you are feeling basic, just skip it <3
A word on the acai sugar we used here: we know that acai powder is not a common pantry ingredient so you can use any other berry powder, matcha powder, cacao powder or just plain sugar. Get creative, we won't judge you and your donuts, we promise. It's your donuts. This brioche donut recipe, we stand by it like all our other recipes. So, if you are looking for a darn good vegan brioche donut recipe we urge you to try ours because these are non-vegans approved and super quick to make! Just don't make these if you are on a diet because they are so addictive we can't assure you that you won't finish the whole batch like we did. But #noregrets.

Creme Patisserie (Mango Coconut Tart Recipe)
Instructions: 1. In the bowl of the stand mixer, pour in (in this order) flour, matcha powder, sugar, salt, yeast, milk and vegan butter. 2. Mix using the dough hook on medium speed for about 15 mins or until a smooth and elastic dough forms. 3. Pat the dough into a round ball and cover it with a damp cloth. Let it ferment for 30 mins at room temperature or until double in size. 4. After 30 mins, degas the dough by punching it down. 5. Turn the dough out on a floured surface and pat it into a rectangular shape. 6. Refrigerate the dough for 30 mins. 7. Roll the dough out into about 1/2 cm thick and cut out rounds using a cookie cutter. You can use any cutter you like, get creative! 8. Let the donuts rise for 20 mins while you prepare the oil for frying. 9. Fill a pot halfway through with oil and heat the oil to about 175 degrees celcius. (The temperature is perfect if the dough sizzles upon touching the oil and turn golden brown in a minute). Alternatively, bake at 180 degrees celcius for 12 mins. 10. Fry the donuts for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and drain on a paper towel. 11. To make the acai sugar, mix the raw sugar with acai powder. 12. Coat the fried donuts with acai sugar and fill with creme patisserie if desired.
