Gluten Free Doughnuts Recipe
Posted , in Bakes
One thing that your child might miss now that they’re following a gluten free diet, is the good old doughnut. Spongy and delicious, the doughnut brings back wonderful memories of fairgrounds and attempting to eat them without licking your lips! These gluten free doughnuts will allow your child to do just that.
- 300g all purpose gluten free flour
- 2 large eggs
- 30g unsalted butter, softened (get it out of the fridge early)
- 4 tbsp fresh vegetable oil
- 1 cup milk
- 65g sugar
- 45g brown sugar
- 1 ½ tbsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp xanthum gum - leave this out if your flour already contains this
- 1 ½ tsp gluten free baking powder
- ¼ tsp gluten free baking soda
- ¾ tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ¾ tsp salt
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
- Pre-heat your doughnut maker.
- In a large bowl, mix together the butter, oil and sugars until its comes together in a smooth mixture.
- Crack in the eggs and beat together with the vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together.
- With the bowl with the wet ingredients in, alternate pouring in milk and the flour mixture, beginning and ending with the flour. Mix slowly and thoroughly until everything is well combined.
- Transfer the mixture into a measuring jug, from which you can easily pour the mixture into the doughnut maker and cook for the allocated time, usually around 5 minutes or until golden brown. You can test whether the doughnut is cooked through by inserting a small skewer, such as a toothpick. If it comes out clean, then they are ready.
- Remove the cooked doughnuts and place on a piece of kitchen roll to soak up any excess oil. Repeat the process until all of your doughnuts are ready.
- Whilst the doughnuts are still slightly warm, dust them in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, leave plain or dip in melted gluten free chocolate!
