Two for the price of one, with this baked doughnuts recipe I am spoiling you! I’ve been wanting to make doughnuts for a while since getting my new Lakeland Baked Doughnut Moulds in the winter sale. I’m a bit like a kiddie in a sweetie shop at the moment because I cannot physically keep up with me mind racing at what I can choose to make yet verses the hours I have in the day to do it, I have THE BIGGEST to-do-list imaginable and a Pinterest wall that’s fit to burst, one board is called Not GF…Yet! It’s exactly that, not gluten free just yet but one day by-Jove it will be!
For now, I’m happy to have ticked this one off. I don’t like to pinch people’s idea and not give credit, it’s not my style so this idea was inspired by Paula’s Baked Vanilla Donut recipe at Call Me PMC but it was neither gluten nor dairy free. I decided on this occasion not to go the whole hog and go egg free too but if you comment below to indicate you’d be interested in an egg free version, I’ll give it a fair old crack of the whip.
As mentioned I used silicone moulds to make these doughnuts, the first mini doughnut mould I got ages ago via Amazon, by the way, if you click on the links it will take you to Amazon where you can see them for yourself, I want you to know that these are affiliate links, therefore, if you chose to buy the moulds I would get a few pennies for the referral but there would be no additional cost to you.
A double whammy of a recipe, with just two little tweaks you've got cinnamon ring doughnuts or jam filled round doughnuts - simple!
- 100 g plain gluten free flour I used Free From Fairy Flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp psyllium powder you can use xanthan gum instead
- 50 g caster sugar
- 100 g dairy free yogurt I used Alpro Soya Coconut yogurt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon for ring doughnut option
- 1 tsp vanilla extract for the jammy doughnut option
- 25 g dairy free chocolate melted
- 4 tbsp icing sugar
- 1 tbsp dairy free milk
- 3 tbsp jam
- 1 tsp water
- 1 tbsp caster sugar to coat
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4.
I like the one bowl no faffing method so simply pop all your ingredients into the mixing bowl and combine until to achieve a smooth batter.
Getting the mixture into the moulds can be a bit fiddly so to make things simple why not put the mixture into a sandwich bag and snip a corner to use as a piping bag.
Fill each mould 3/4 full.
Pop into the oven for 15 minutes (only 10 mins if using the mini mould)
