NUTS FOR DOUGHNUTS
Vegan, wheat- and gluten-free, these doughnuts (top) are made using free-from lour binded with apple purée for a subtle sweetness. hey’re pretty too, and would look spectacular piled high in a doughnut tower. ‘I loved every mouthful of these cake-like, beautifully decorated doughnuts,’ says Brides Editor Jade. ‘For me, they were a total treat – which is quite surprising when you consider how health conscious they are, too.’
