This morning I decided to make Homemade donuts. Never making them before at all I search pintrest and other online blogs for gluten free recipes. I found a few and decided to dive right in!!!
I invited the hubby in the kitchen with me because we were going to try and deep fry the donuts. AND he LOVES fried food. We don’t eat them often at all but he talks about fried foods a lot. So that was his job. He was in charge of the oil.
I mixed the recipe all up. Then I kinda realized that it was really runny so I wouldn’t be rolling out the dough and cutting donut shapes.
So we make shifted a water bottle into a pourer of batter and started our first batch. Needless to say total failure. It looked like how a funnel cake would be created but didn’t succeed at all.
My thought was maybe the batter was to runny. So I added almond flour to thicken it up. Then we tried the next batch. It was definitely thicker but still did not work what so ever.
I was thinking fine I will just bake the donuts like most people were doing anyways on these blogs. BUT I do not own one of those nifty electric donut makers. OR even a donut pan that you would bake in.
I am a woman when I set out to do something especially make donuts and we have been talking about it for a couple hours now and the kids have there hearts set on eating donuts, a mom just really has to come through.
So I dug through my baking drawer and pulled out my mini muffin tins…. Perfect I will just use these.
Worked perfectly. Baked Muffin/donuts Even better cause they are baked and not fried. I even added blueberries and raspberries to the last batch.
Now enough of my blabbing. You will find the recipe below as well as pictures of how they turned out.
Happy Donut making
