Using this donut pan is a lot easier and yields much better results. You need one of these!
My donut pan came from King Arthur Flour, a company that also makes good gluten-free products. The first recipe I made with the donut pan, Baked Doughnuts Three Ways, also came from King Arthur Flour. With this recipe, you can make coconut donuts, cinnamon donuts, or chocolate chip donuts.
I chose to make chocolate chip donuts, but I had to change the recipe to make it gluten-free by using gluten-free all-purpose flour instead. Just make sure all the other ingredients you are using are also gluten-free.
These donuts turned out really well and were a bit softer than traditional cake donuts. I didn't have the ingredients to make a sugar coating for the donuts, but I think they would be even better with the sugar coating.
They tasted a lot better the day they were made. A few days later, they weren't as good, so make the whole dozen and invite people over to help you eat these.
Also, do you spell "donut" or "doughnut"?
