Happy National Doughnut Day

So today is National Doughnut (Donut?) Day.  Even though I am dairy and gluten free, there is never a time a will say a don’t want a doughnut (or pizza, for that matter). Since I’m on summer vacation and had no plans, I thought it would be the perfect day to experiment.  After much perusing Pinterest, I can across this recipe from Delightful Adventures.  

Click on over for the recipe. I followed advice and used Bob’s Red Mill GF Baking Flour since my dietary restrictions are lighter.

Also, I added two Tablespoons of brewed coffee and one extra Tablespoon of flour to enhance the chocolate flavor.

These were baked with Almond Milk.

I also did not have a doughnut pan, so I piped the batter into a muffin pan, which worked pretty well.  I imagine a muffin pan for over-sized muffins would leave a small hole in the doughnuts.

Seriously, these doughnuts are g.r.e.a.t. I saved some plain, sprinkled a few with powdered sugar (which was perfect), and glazed the rest. I think I made my glaze too thin (I struggle with that sometimes), so I ended up glazing the doughnuts 2-3 times, letting the glaze harden between each one.

While you are enjoying the doughnuts, check out the history behind National Doughnut Day. Happy Eating!



About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
