Donut Socca Recipe

by Lori and Michelle on February 15, 2011

Hello friends,


Lori and I are always thinking of news ways to make our beloved socca. And this Valentine day was no different.  We knew we wanted something similar to our last chocolate socca.

Things we thought of before putting this recipe all together:

  • Want something chocolate
  • Want a unique shape
  • Want it to be socca based
  • Want something pink


Chocolate Donut Socca with Raspberry Creme Filling (gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, low sugar)


  • 1/2cup + 1tbsp  garbanzo bean or chickpea flour
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp carob or chocolate powder (we did a combo of both)
  • 1/2 tsp whole lavender leaves



  • Grab donut maker pan (makes about 6 small donut circles)
  • Place garbanzo bean flour, sea salt, chocolate powder, and water into bowl and whisk together till well combined. Set aside.
  • Rub some oil or butter of choice in donut pan.
  • CAREFULLY fill each donut hole in pan with socca batter.
  • Place in oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until donut socca feels done.


Raspberry creme filling:

  • 2 tbsp raspberry juice (from thawed frozen raspberries; or could use a few whole raspberries)
  • 10 drops stevia
  • 1 tsp sunflower lecithin (optional)
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter

Place our ingredients into blender and blend till smooth.


Put the  whole dish together. Place one donut socca circle down fill with some raspberry creme, and repeat till you have yourself a stack. And lightly dust plate with a few lavender leaves.


Devour and enjoy every bite with LOVE :)


Love how savory the chocolate socca balances with the sweet creamy filling!

And please remember this is a socca texture not a donut!!! We just called it a donut because of the shape :)

Till next time,

Love the disclaimer! I am a huge fan of a sweet topping to a less sweet baked good. These look and sound delicious!

Mimi (Gingersnaps) February 15, 2011 at 2:59 pm

That is so cute! Thanks so much for making it low sugar. I like sweet things…but sugar does not like me, haha.

You can call anything with a hole a donut! :) I need to try this recipe. I made a socca from Ashley’s page and it was so good. I bet a dessert version would rock my socks.

Thanks Sarena! Sometimes we even need disclaimer for a recipe, LOL

Pure2 February 15, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Mimi sugar does not like us either!

Pure2 February 15, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Oh, I adore lavender in sweet dishes! To be honest, I’ve only had it in chocolate so far, but I’m fairly certain I’ll think this tastes amazing :)

I totally need to buy some garbanzo bean flour and try your socca recipes. I thought I had bought some the last time i went to the grocery store, but I must have out it back. I am definitely buying some on my next trip tomorrow and making some socca as soon as I can!

Pure2 February 16, 2011 at 5:12 am

I love how you share the creative process, that you wanted such and such a list of things and came up with something as a result. It’s so enjoyable to read about and really resonates for me. And this whole thing sounds super-yummy!

Kate @thepseudovegan April 16, 2011 at 6:42 am

I have been obsessed with socca lately! It would be awesome to make a socca dessert :) Can I omit the lavender, or use anything else? I am not big on the taste of lavender. Probably because I used to use the lavender pillow spray and just got sick of it HAHA!

Pure2 April 16, 2011 at 7:25 am

Yes Kate you can really add any flavor you like have fun with it

eden October 7, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Lori and Michelle October 7, 2011 at 6:25 pm
