Ahhh…donuts. I miss the days when I could get some hot and ready donuts from Krispy Kreme or a box of donut holes from Dunkin Donuts. Those were the days…I don’t think about donuts too much but every once in awhile I just get a donut craving and even though there are some ok substitutes like Glutino, they are all frozen and lack the ooey gooey, hot & fresh taste of Krispy Kreme!
I came across this recipe while on our vegan journey and decided to give it a try! I made them for a work meeting we were having so that i could test them out on my co-workers! They were hit, and everyone said that the powdered sugar was their favorite, it was my favorite as well! They turned out really moist and they are a great GF substitute for Dunkin Donuts! You don’t even need one of those special donut pans either! They dont take long to make at all and would be a perfect brunch addition, or just a regular ol weekday breakfast!
What you need: (Adapted from Fitsugar, linked above)
* 1 cup GF white rice flour
*1/4 cup white sugar
*1/4 cup brown sugar
*1/2 tsp xanthan gum
*1/4 tsp salt
*1/4 tsp nutmeg
*1/4 tsp cinnamon
*1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
*1/2 cup almond milk
* 4 tbsp Earth Balance butter
*1/2 tsp vanilla
*1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.) You will be using muffin tins, I just used regular sized ones or you can use mini ones. Make sure to grease them.
3.) Take all the dry ingredients and mix together in a bowl. Set aside.
4.) Over medium heat, mix all of the wet ingredients together until they are combined.
5.) Once the heated mixture has cooled add it to the dry ingredients and mix together.
6.) I tried to roll the dough into balls as best I could, the dough is a bit sticky. Drop each ball into a muffin tin slot, makes about 24.
7.) Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
8.) If you want toppings, now is the time! For powdered sugar just dip in powdered sugar, pretty easy huh??! 😉 For chocolate, mix together some cocoa powder, powder sugar, and a little milk to make it dippable. There are so many other toppings to create, so be creative!
