I have definitely missed donuts since I stopped eating gluten. Especially since it is a favored treat in my office. Many donuts have come and gone and I have only been able to drool over them. This is why I decided to invest in a mini donut maker. I plan on finding a pan too, this just happened to be what I found. But I am very happy with it. I went online and found a simple recipe to try it out and I think I found my base recipe to wok off of! I made a second batch and added some cocoa powder, a little more coconut milk to make it a pourable consistency, and voila! Chocolate mini donuts!
The original recipe can be found at http://www.sunbeam.co.nz/recipes/d/doughnut-maker-gluten-free-doughnut-batter/
I have modified it a little…
*Before you begin baking make sure all of your ingredients are gluten free as well as dairy free (if you are going that route.*
Donuts! (Old Fashioned Style and Chocolate) Gluten free and Dairy free
Grease the pans of the Donut Maker or donut pans (I haven‘t tried them in the oven yet as I don‘t have a pan to do so). Pre-heat your Donut Maker (I have a mini one).
1 c Rice Flour
½ c Quinoa Flour
½ Casters sugar
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
Cinnamon and Nutmeg to taste
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.
½ cup Butter, melted
¾ cup Coconut Milk
1 Egg, beaten
- Pour the butter, milk, and egg into the dry ingredients. Mix in until fully incorporated and is a pourable consistency.
- Pour the batter into the donut cups until they are full. Close the lid once all cups are full. Cook for 8 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool and then frost, glaze, sprinkle, or just enjoy!
Makes approximately 27 mini donuts.
To make chocolate donuts add 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder and increase the milk until it is a pourable consistency, approximately 1/8 cup.
To make a simple glaze beat together 2 tbsp milk with ¼ to ½ cup powdered sugar. If it isn’t thick enough add more sugar.
For a chocolate glaze add ½ tbsp cocoa powder and 1 tsp vanilla.
