Quick & Easy Timbits (3 Ways)

Canada is 150 years old in just a couple days! We wanted to celebrate with a bang. We absolutely love Canada. It’s an incredible place to call home and we feel so lucky. To celebrate this place we call home we made a signature Canadian dish: Timbits! That’s right we’re making 3 Quick & Easy Timbits that will have Canadians happy dancing. Keep that happy dance going strong, because not only are we making 3 flavours we made a total of 150 of them! You read that right. How can you celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday without 150 vegan timbts? It’s simple, you can’t.

For those of you that aren’t Canadians – timbits are simply donut holes. We call them timbits as that’s what their called at Canadian favourite Tim Hortons. The name is basically a national treasure. No matter what you call them, they’re delicious.

Three classic flavours for a timbit, are sprinkles, chocolate and apple fritter. Whether or not they are still around now, we don’t know but those were always the ones that we loved before going vegan. It’s a long post, but below you will find all three of the recipes needed. Keep in mind that each recipe makes over 50 timbits, which is A LOT! Don’t expect a normal amount from these recipes, if you want a normal amount cut all the quantities in half.

Happy Canada Day everyone! Tell us what you are doing this Canada Day to celebrate in the comments below.

Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 50 mins
Servings: 50 donuts

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup vegan butter milk, 1 1/2 cup milk + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp nutmeg
  • 2 flax eggs, 2 tbsp ground flax + 6 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp melted vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

icing: 2 cups icing sugar + 1/4 cup water

  • 2 cups vegan sprinkles

Instructions

  • Make vegan buttermilk by combining apple cider vinegar and non-dairy milk. Let this mixture sit for about 10 minutes to curdle. Then add your flax egg, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  • In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, nutmeg and sugar. Set aside.
  • Create a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour your wet ingredients in. With a baking spatula fold until just combined.
  • We used a cake-pop maker. Added enough batter to each mould and baking for about 6 minutes or until golden brown. If you do not have a cake-pop maker you can use your oven. Add about 1 tbsp of the mixture to a small muffin tin. Repeat until all the dough is used up. Bake in an oven heated at 350F for 9-10 minutes.
  • Remove donuts and allow to cool on a wire rack completely.
  • While they are cooling you can make your glaze. To make the glaze combine icing sugar with water. Whisk until all combined. You want a thick consistency, just a bit thinner than molasses. This will allow it to really stick to the donuts.
  • Once the donuts are cooled entirely roll each one in the glaze and sprinkles and return to the rack for it to harden. Ensure that you have something under your rack as it will drip and be a bit messy!
