  • 2 ½ cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder aluminum free
  • ½ teaspoon finely ground sea salt
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup aquafaba liquid from chickpeas
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoon lemon zest divided
  • 3 tablespoon minced thyme
  • cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350° and lightly grease your doughnut pan if it’s not a non-stick pan.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt until completely combined.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugars, olive oil, aquafaba, lemon juice, 2 tablespoon lemon zest, and vanilla until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Add the flour mixture and thyme to the sugar mixture and stir until just combined. Spoon the batter into the doughnut pans, approximately ¾ of the way full. Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the doughnuts. Let cool for 5 minutes and then invert onto a wire cooling rack until completely cool. Dip the tops of the cooled doughnuts in the glaze and add lemon zest and a sprig of thyme.
  • Mix the confectioners sugar and lemon juice until it’s smooth and creamy.
  • Enjoy!
