I was determined to find the perfect substitute in looks and taste. Third time’s a charm!
I found this recipe on Free Eats and they looked delish. These are officially my new favorite donut recipe. To make these a little healthier, I baked them instead of frying. Makes 4 dozen mini donuts.
2 cups All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Mix
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
3/4 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum (unnecessary if these are not gluten free)
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 cup Sugar
2 Tablespoon Canola Oil
1/4 cup Milk with 1/2 teaspoon Cider Vinegar added to make “buttermilk”
1/4 cup Unsweetened “Natural” Applesauce
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted
These were tested on my Celiac husband and gluten eating coworker. Both agreed these were the best!
