For the hot cross bun donuts:

For the cashew orange glaze:


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C and grease a silicone donut mould with coconut oil.
  2. For the donuts, mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Once well combined add the wet ingredients and the raisins, mixing until a sticky dough forms.
  4. Scoop even portions of mixture into a silicone mould and smooth them with a spatula.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  6. Remove from oven and set aside to cool while you make the glaze.
  7. For the glaze, add all ingredients (except the choc chips) to a high-speed blender and process until smooth.
  8. Divide the mixture evenly between two bowls.
  9. Melt the choc chips over a double boiler and add the melted chocolate to one of the bowls with the cashew glaze. Stir until well combined.
  10. Now add the choc cashew glaze to the plain cashew glaze without stirring them through.
  11.  Slowly dip each donut into the glaze and twist it 180° to create the ‘marble’ effect.
  12. Place donuts in fridge for the glaze to set.
  13. Happy Easter!
