Warning!!! Extreme Vegan Junk Food Alert!!!! For my birthday this year, my mom made me a special treat…. vegan gluten-free doughnuts. After posting a picture of these on twitter….. I received quite a few requests for the recipe. So, here you go. She found the recipe in the September issue of “Rachel Ray Magazine” and veganized it. She found the donut pans online at Target. Enjoy!!!!
