Gluten free vanilla doughnuts with strawberry glaze

Mini doughnuts for my Winter Wonderland dessert table

Yesterday I showed you my inspiration for mini doughnuts. I just had to have a go myself and love how they turned out. I will definitely be making some more batches for my Winter Woodland dessert table and to give as gifts.

Gluten free vanilla donuts (makes 24 mini doughnuts)

  • 110g (1 cup) gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp xantham gum
  • 115g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • Non-stick cooking spray

What you will need

Cooking instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160 deg C, fan assisted (370 deg F)
  2. Lightly spray doughnut pan with non stick cooking spray
  3. In a bowl beat the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla essence and oil together until you get a foamy mixture
  4. In a separate bowl, add the sieved dry ingredients to the sugar and mix.
  5. Gradually pour foamy mixture into dry ingredients and stir until mixture is combined
  6. Pour mixture into greased doughnut pan until each cavity is half full (I prefer to use a piping bag to fill each cup more evenly and cleanly)
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 mins or until doughnut springs back when lightly pressed
  8. Turn out onto baking rack and leave to cool
