Hello My Yummies,
I am happy to announce that I have perfected my donut recipe!!!!
2 eggs beaten
2 C buttermilk
1/4 C melted butter
1 1/2 TSP Vanilla Extract
5 1/2 Cups flour mix* (I’ve modified the original recipe see note below)
2 1/2 TSP baking soda
1 1/2 TSP baking powder
2 TSP salt
3 TSP xanthan gum
** Flour mix**
3 C Brown Rice Flour
2 C White Rice Flour
1C Sweet Rice Flour
3C Potato Starch (changing from the original recipe, potato starch really helps with the consistency of the donuts)
1 1/2C Tapioca Starch
Beat eggs, buttermilk and melted butter and vanilla
Combine all dry ingredients sift together to get out any lumps
Fold wet and dry together then mix with hands to form into a big ball.
Set aside with plastic wrap in a dark warm place and let rise 45 minutes
Heat 3 inches of canola oil to 365 (F) This is the perfect temperature for frying donuts.
Roll out dough and cut with biscuit cutter or a glass punch out holes in the middle with a shot glass
Drop donuts into hot oil cook until golden brown (approximately two minutes)
Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to drain
Dust with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar, whatever you like.
(I made a yummy glaze for these donuts today, I put one cup of powdered sugar and three TBS of water with 1 TSP of vanilla extract. I whisked together until runny and dipped donuts in the glaze while warm but not piping hot! Then I added sprinkles. 🙂 )
