Gluten free Doughnuts? Oh yes friends.. Gluten Free Doughnuts. This morning I sat thinking about my favorite fall things.. and it crossed my mind that I couldn’t think of a single place to go get a gluten free variation of this treat. So all day. I made doughnuts..and more doughnuts. Some turned out like fried thick bread, others fell apart. This was my last and final attempt.. and when I placed the fried tester bite into my mouth I screamed in Joy.. and then called /texted every close friend I have. Very exciting. Might I add I gave myself a rather intense sugar headache in the process. But it was worth it!
May you ALL enjoy this beautiful time of year!
- In a Large mixing bowl using a hand mixer beat the Butter, Sugar, Salt, Spices, Baking Soda and Powder.
- Add the Milk, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pumpkin ,Vanilla Extract , Eggs and beat a little more.
- Using a spoon mix in the Bisquick gf flour Mix. The mixture will be somewhat thin and bubbly.
- Cover and place in the fridge for several hours (2-3). This will help it become more of a solid dough which will be easier to handle.
- Remove from Fridge – and Cover a wooden cutting board with some Bisquick mix. Gently Roll the dough out to about a 1/2 inch thickness. It will be sticky and fragile. I used my hands to just pat it down slightly to the correct size. Use a little little bit of additional flour to avoid too much stickiness.
- Using a biscuit cutter cut the dough into circles- using a smaller cutter- cut out the center. Roll the center pieces into balls for doughnut holes.
- Lay to doughnuts on a baking sheet and return to the fridge while prepping the Oil.
- Pour several cups of Oil into a deep heavy bottomed Pot. Heat till it reaches roughly 325 degrees. Test to make sure the temp is correct by throwing in a tester doughnut hole.
- Once ready- Place doughnuts gently into the oil (be careful to not break) Do not overcrowd the pot. Fry the Doughnuts for roughly 2 1/2 minutes- flipping once midway through the time. Place on a paper towel to drain oil.
Feel free to place hot Doughnuts into a confectioners sugar and cinnamon mixture. Or Create an Apple Cidar Glaze by boiling apple cider down into a syrup and mixing this with some confectioners sugar and drizzling on top.
