Quick allergy friendly donut recipe!

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE DAIRY FREE GLUTEN FREE BAKED RED VELVET DONUTS

  • 3/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (like my flour blend, GF Mama, or GF Jules)
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your blend already has it)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/3 cup dairy free milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon red food coloring

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons dairy-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cheesecake flavoring

INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE DAIRY FREE GLUTEN FREE BAKED RED VELVET DONUTS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Lightly grease your donut pan and set aside.
  2. In a measuring cup or small bowl mix together the dairy free milk and vinegar and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum(if using). Make a “well” in the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the milk/vinegar mixture, egg, oil, and food coloring to the well and mix until just combined.
  5. (Add more or less food coloring to get the desired color. I ended up using 1 teaspoon, but I wanted my donuts to be bright red.)
  6. Pour the batter into a sandwich bag, seal it, and then cut one of the corners off. Use this makeshift piping bag to fill the donut pan.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the donut springs back when you lightly touch it.
  8. Let cool slightly before removing them from the pan.
  9. Dip in the glaze or frost with your favorite frosting.

FOR THE GLAZE

  1. In a small microwave safe bowl, mix together all of the glaze ingredients.
  2. Heat in your microwave for 20-30 seconds. You don’t want the frosting to boil or bubble, you just want it to be warm and thinner.
  3. Quickly dip each donut in the glaze and set aside for the glaze to set. Work quickly, as the glaze will set fast and the glaze does not reheat very well.
