Round up of accidentally vegan doughnuts, and some made for vegan ones, from shops in the UK.
Round jam doughtnut’s in some stores, as usual it depends if they are baked bake from scratch or cooked from frozen – check with bakery to see allergen/ingredients folder.
Jam Ball and Custard Ball from the in store bakery. From time to time the ring donuts are vegan. Watch out for beeswax, often listed as E901. Some smaller Co-ops don’t stock their own brand as they don’t have a bakery and sell other brands. So make sure they are Co-op bakery sold in brown bags or loose in some stores.

THE NOTTINGHAM DOUGHNUT CO
The Nottingham Doughnut Co. has shops only in Nottingham and Derby at the moment, but they do turn up at markets, food festivals etc. from time to time. They usually have three vegan options as standard— Cinnamon Whirl, a Jam one and a Peanut Butter & Jam. New flavours are advertised via their social media but are limited edition. All flavours are subject to availability. The shops are closed on Mondays
The bags are the same, its just the allergen info that is different. The bag will say if they contain eggs and you can always check if they make them from scratch to double check.
