For Donuts

  • 150 gr Almond Flour

  • 110gr butter

  • 300gr double cream

  • 30 gr erythritol

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp tahini paste

  • A pinch of pink salt


For Glazing

  • 200 gr of cocoa butter

  • 2-3 buttons of unsweetened chocolate

  • 1 tbsp of tahini.


For the Dough

Step 1- Grease the baking tray

Grease the tray generously, covering the surfaces where the dough is going, especially around the center. 

Set aside until needed.

Step 2- Whisk the egg white in a large glass bowl

Separate the egg white from the yolk, add a pinch of salt (my favourite is Himalayan pink salt), and whisk until stiff. 

Step 3- Add the yolks

Add the yolks and whisk them until combined.

Step 4- Add the double cream and the vanilla extract.

Add the double cream and whisk until combined, then add the vanilla extract and repeat the process.

Step 5- Add the melted butter

Melt the butter in a pan on low heat. Mix in the melted butter with the cream and eggs.

Step 6- Add the Almond flour and erythritol

Add the Almond flour and keep stirring until combined.

Add the erythritol and combine.

Step 7- Add the baking powder  and check

Add the baking powder and mix until combined. 

Step 8- Pour the mixture into the baking pan and place them in the oven.

Pour the dough into the baking pan donut holes. You can use a tablespoon, or if you are brave enough, you can use a small jar. 

Once the baking tray is ready, place it in the oven, and it is baking time!

Step 9- Leave the donuts to cool in the baking pan

Once you’ve baked the donuts, leave them to cool on a plate. 

Put a oven paper sheet

For the Glazing

Step 10 Melt the Cocoa Butter

Melt the cocoa butter using a water bath. 

Step 11 – Add unsweetened chocolate

Add  to the cocoa butter a couple of unsweetened chocolate buttons, be careful, if you add too much the glazing will have a bitter taste.

Cook in a water bath until melted, stirring occasionally.

Step 12 – Add a tablespoon of tahini paste

Once everything is melted add a tablespoon of tahini paste and stir in until combined.

Step 13 – Glaze the donuts

You should use the mixture as soon as it is ready as it will solidify, especially if the room is cold.

Spread mixture over the donuts. If you want extra thick glazing then doing it in layers (as you would coats of paint) can be effective.

Finishing Up

Step 15  Place the donuts on a tray and put them in the fridge.

Put them in the fridge for at least one hour. The donuts will be firm and the glazing will be solid.
