Once I had "adjusted", and I use the term in quotes cuz it took alot of adjusting, to the new way of eating, I determined that I was not going to eat the store bought gluten free breads or desserts. Ugg. Not only are they expensive, but I simply can't get over the taste. I'm not saying they are bad, it's just not what I want. So over the last year I have been baking breads and searching for what I consider the perfect donut recipe. It took some doing and a whole lot of batches of donuts that I subjected my son and friends to, but I finally have them. One is someone else's PIN that I will link but the other is mine. All mine and well now yours.
Chocolate Lovers Gluten Free Baked Donuts
150 g or about 1 1/4 cup Pamela's Baking and Pancake Gluten Free Mix (if using your own GF mix, weigh out about 120 g of your flour and the rest Almond flour or 1 cup of your mix and 1/4 c Almond flour)
53 g or about 1/4 c sugar
1/4 c Hershey's Dark Chocolate or Hershey's Milk Chocolate (I prefer the dark chocolate)
1/4 c heavy cream
3 tbsp Sour Cream
1 lg egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c oil (I used canola or vegetable, either have worked)
Things to add if yours mix does not have:
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthum gum
1/4 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 375 F
Oil a donut pan (I have used coconut, vegetable and canola), set aside
In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the heavy cream and the egg. Beat on medium until smooth and creamy.
Add the sour cream and vanilla
Beat until it is very whipped, about 5 minutes on medium high
While that is beating, in a separate bowl mix the flour, chocolate and sugar.
Add a 1/4 cup of flour mixture at a time to mixing bowl until about half has been added.
Begin to add the rest of the flour mixture.
Let the dough mixture sit to absorb the liquid for no less then 15 minutes. You can go ahead and add it to a piping bag or a large ziplock at this time. It doesn't have to stay in the bowl.
Depending on your oven, cook for approximately 8 minutes (use the tooth pick method to check for doneness). Let cool in the pan for 3-5 minutes before turning them out.
Use your glaze of choice!
Let me know if you made changes and how they came out!
