FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BAKING GLUTEN FREE DONUTS

Does baking powder contain gluten? Baking powder usually contains corn starch, cream of tartar, and baking soda none of which contain gluten but always check the ingredient list to be sure it is gluten free. I use Clabber Girl which is gluten free and so is Bob’s Red Mill. 

Does yeast contain gluten? This recipe does not call for yeast but I do get asked this. Some yeasts do contain gluten so you just have to check carefully.

What if I don’t have flaxseed meal? You can easily replace the flaxseed meal with an equal amount of Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour.

Can I substitute other gluten free flours in this donut recipe? In a word – NO! I have not tested this with other gluten free flours and they all work differently.

In a large bowl, whisk together the first seven dry ingredients, flour through sugar.

In another small bowl, whisk together the melted and cooled butter, vanilla, egg yolks, and milk. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in. Mix gently.

In a separate small bowl, whisk the two egg whites for about a minute or two with a fork.Add egg whites to mixture and stir just until mixed.

Transfer mixture to a Ziploc bag and cut the corner tip off. This makes it easy to pipe into the donut pan. Or scoop into pan by spoon if using mini donut maker

Fill each well 3/4 full without covering the middle section. If you do, your doughnuts won’t have a hole.Cook for about 8-10 minutes.Allow to cool completely before glazing.

For the icing: mix the powdered sugar with the desired amount of milk. More milk will make icing runny so don’t add too much at one time.

Dip doughnuts in icing and place on a rack to drip dry.
