Gluten & dairy free chocolate donuts

Chocolate donuts

This morning I woke up craving a donut…a cake donut with chocolate glaze. And, since I’m not working for the rest of 2014, I decided to make some…after I worked out. ūüôā These took about 30 minutes from start to finish and my kids devoured half of them (the recipe made¬†1 dozen)¬†in no time.

  • 3/4¬†cup¬†gluten free¬†flour
  • ¬ľ cup¬† sugar
  • 3 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¬Ĺ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¬Ĺ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¬Ĺ teaspoon salt
  • ¬ľ cup¬†nondairy milk
  • 1 egg (or you can use 1 Tbs. flax meal¬†mixed into 3 Tbs warm water and set aside until it forms a gel)
  • ¬Ĺ teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract
  • 2¬†Tbs. nondairy butter, melted
  • 2-3 tablespoons nondairy milk, depending on how thick you want your glaze
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2¬†c. powdered sugar
  • Sprinkles (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 325
  • Mix dry ingredients together, then add liquids at the same time. Mix well.
  • Grease a¬†donut baking pan (I use this one)
  • Spoon the donut batter into¬†a disposable pastry bag¬†with about 1/2″ cut off of the bottom, and¬†pipe batter to each donut slot, filling about halfway. Don’t fill them up or they will puff up and be ginormous. Trust me on this one…I might have tried it.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until the donuts are cooked through. Don’t cook them too long or they’ll be dry.
  • Once cooked, turn donut pan over and dump donuts onto a wire rack.
  • Whisk glaze ingredients together in a bowl. The dip the top, smooth edge of¬†the donut into the glaze and press down so the donut is halfway submerged. Turn over and let dry on a wire rack. Repeat until all donuts are glazed.
  • Try to eat just one!
