Gluten Free Mini-Doughnuts

Gluten Free Mini-Doughnuts
Cindy Bauer

glutenfreedoughnutsIt is fair time once again and the sweet smells of fair fare are in the air. An all-time   favorite is mini-doughnuts. Having Celiac’s that is off the menu – until now. I created my own gluten free mini-doughnut recipe using ingredients found in most kitchens. The results are easy and tasty. Try them for yourself.

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 Tbls vegetable oil
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 1/2 cups instant potato flakes
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup corn meal
1 1/2 cups corn flour


Beat eggs. Beat in sugar and oil. Add baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and xanthan gum. Add potato flakes alternately with milk. Add vanilla. Stir in corn meal and then corn flour. Should make a very soft dough. Scoop into rounded Tablespoonfuls and drop into deep fat fryer. Hot oil should be about 360-370 degrees F. Let fry to a golden brown. (About 1-2 minutes.) Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle with Artisan Blends Crumble Spice or cinnamon sugar. Enjoy! (Makes about 3 dozen.)

Dough should be sticky enough you can roll the spoonfuls into balls if you so desire. Corn flour can be found in many grocery stores. It is often found near the corn tortillas.

I don’t have a deep fat fryer so I use my wok or a saucepan and fill it 3/4 of the way full with vegetable oil.
