Doughnuts are making a trendy comeback...look for them in high end restaurants, retro diners and right in your own home, thanks to this recipe.

Ingredients

Doughnuts

Vegetable oil for deep frying
1
egg
1
cup buttermilk
2
tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/2
cups Betty Crocker™ All-Purpose Gluten Free Rice Flour Blend
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
teaspoon baking soda
1
teaspoon salt
1
teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2
teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

Chocolate Glaze

1/2
cup powdered sugar
1
tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
1
tablespoon butter, melted
3
to 4 teaspoons milk

Directions

  • 1 In deep fryer or 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375°F.
  • 2 To make Doughnuts, in large bowl, beat egg, buttermilk and 2 tablespoons melted butter with whisk until blended. In medium bowl, stir remaining doughnut ingredients. Slowly fold dry ingredients into egg mixture; coat hands with flour blend, and mix with hands, if necessary. Cover and let dough rest 15 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile in small bowl, stir together Chocolate Glaze ingredients, stirring in enough milk until smooth and desired glaze consistency. Cover; set aside while frying doughnuts.
  • 4 Sprinkle flour blend on work surface. Roll out dough on surface to 1/2-inch thickness. If dough is sticky, coat hands and rolling pin with flour blend. Cut dough with 3-inch round doughnut cutter. Fry doughnuts and holes in hot oil about 2 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dip top of each doughnut and holes into glaze. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Just be sure to maintain the correct oil temperature so the outside gets crisp and golden brown and the inside stays tender. One of the secrets of success is to fry the doughnuts in batches to keep from overcrowding the pan and causing a drop in the oil temperature.

Vanilla Glazed Doughnuts: Follow directions for Chocolate Glaze--except omit baking cocoa and melted butter.

Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts: Omit Glaze. Stir together 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. After frying and draining, immediately roll doughnuts and holes in sugar mixture.

This recipe was created for our new Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Rice Flour Blend available in grocery stores in late July. Until then, feel free to try this recipe using any gluten-free all-purpose rice flour blend found in larger supermarkets and co-ops.
