How to make it
- In separate small bowls mix together flaxseed meal with the water and the soy milk with the vinegar. Set aside for a few minutes.
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.
- Beat together the sugar and margarine. It won't cream together but you want to evenly distribute the margarine.
- Add the flaxseed meal and beat until creamy. Add the vanilla, pumpkin and soy milk mixture and stir together.
- Add the dry ingredients in 3-4 stages mixing almost until combined each time. With the final addition of dry ingredients mix just until combined.
- Cover and chill the dough for at least an hour.
- Lightly flour a baking sheet and set aside. Press the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut the holes with a 1 inch circle cutter. Set the cut holes on the floured baking sheet. Press the scrapes together and repeat until all the dough is cut into circles.
- Heat several inches of oil in a heavy bottomed pot slowly over medium low heat. Have a frying thermometer ready and watch the oil's temperature.
- Set a cooling rack over a baking sheet near the frying area. Begin frying donuts when the oil reaches 365-370 degrees F. Gently drop 3-5 holes at a time into the hot oil. Rotate the donut holes with a wire spider strainer or slotted spoon for 2 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly before tossing in spiced sugar.
