Eggless doughnuts

This is just up my street. I love love loveee doughnuts and guess what the recipe is eggless.

My mum gave me this recipe to try out. She came across it on someone’s Facebook wall and I knew that I just had to try it out.

I tweaked the ingredients a little here and a little there.

Seriously why should all the meat eaters have all the delicious sweet things?
