not the swedish chef doughnuts

I introduced my Beloved to the Swedish Chef a while back.  He was never one of those kids who sat much.  Outside and playing was his choice so he never saw the Muppets.  He now quotes the doughnut skit often.  But he has decided to go gluten free again because it makes him feel better.  And I wanted a doughnut pan.  What does that mean?  Gluten free doughnuts!

I took the recipe for Old Fashioned doughnuts by Lara Ferroni in her book Doughnuts:  Simple and Delicious Recipes to Make at Home and made it gluten free and modified it to what I had in the kitchen.  It was very easy.

Gluten Free Old Fashioned Baked Doughnuts

1/4 cup arrowroot flour

1/4 cup millet

1/4 cup sorghum

1/4 cup almond flour

1/4 cup corn flour

1 tablespoon ground flax seed

1 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup yogurt

1 egg

1 tablespoon butter or shortening

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together well.  You want them to be very well mixed and light.  Add the egg, yogurt, and butter.  Mix until everything is combined.

I purchased the Wilton doughnut pans that have a very nice non-stick finish.  The mini pan I would probably grease but the regular size I did not have to.  I also over filled the pans so less full then you see above

Bake 6 to 10 minutes.  Let cool a bit before you remove them from the pan.  Glaze.

These are pretty fabulous.  Also, if you have problems getting them out of the tin, they would make lovely cake balls!  The Tall Short Person came through and kept munching.  She did not even realize they were gluten free!  How amazing is that?  She has come to be more adventurous in her old age but she is still fairly picky.  A lot of picky has to do with texture so these were really spot on.

One caution:  Do not eat them all in one sitting (smile)
