I love the earthy nutty flavour of Kinako (Japanese roasted ground soy bean powder )
It is also very nutritious containing B vitamins and protein
you often find in on many Japanese dessert so I decided to make baked cake donuts with it and a kinako frosting for the top.
You will need
in one bowl add
2 cups of oat flour
3/4 cup kinako
2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon baking soda
In a separate bowl
1/2 cup apple puree
one tablespoon of melted coconut butter
1/2 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon brown rice vinegar
2 tablespoon brown rice syrup
1/2 cup of unrefined granulated sugar
mix wet into the dry and mix into a batter . If it’s to wet add more flour to dry add a little more milk .
Brush a donut pan with melted coconut oil and spoon in your mixture
Bake in a moderate oven for about 20 mins til risen and golden
Take the donuts out if they have lost their hole just remake it again with a toothpick .
Leave to cool then turn out.
using a cup of icing sugar and a tablespoon of kinako add a little water at a time until you get a thick frosting.
decorate your donuts with frosting ( I also added toasted hazelnuts and a drizzle of vegan chocolate )
place in the freezer to set . I tend to keep mine in the freezer and take them out one at a time and defrost them when I want one .
