Mini Gluten free baked chocolate doughnuts

Mini Gluten free baked chocolate doughnuts
My mini gluten free vanilla doughnuts went down so well that I just had to make another batch. This time I went for chocolate flavoured doughnuts with a white chocolate icing and aqua sugar sprinkles. I will have to make another batch of these for my Winter Wonderland dessert table nearer the time as I think they are a perfect colour match and look cute!

Gluten free chocolate 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 tablespoons organic cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • Non-stick cooking spray

What you will need
  • Mini doughnut pan

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, mix the sieved dry ingredients in to the sugar
  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
