Gluten-Free Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe

Gluten-Free Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe

I wanted to make a gluten-free doughnut that tasted so good, the fact that it’s gluten-free is beside the point! —Kathryn Conrad, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Bake: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free biscuit/baking mix
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup apple cider or juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, mix the first eight ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the water, butter, applesauce and vanilla until blended. Add to the dry ingredients; stir until blended. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Cut a small hole in the corner of a food-safe plastic bag; fill with batter. Pipe into a 6-cavity doughnut pan coated with cooking spray, filling cavities three-fourths full.
  • 3. Bake at 325° for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • 4. For glaze, in a small saucepan, bring apple cider to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to 3 tablespoons. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in butter until melted. Stir in enough confectioners' sugar to reach glaze consistency. Dip each doughnut halfway, allowing excess to drip off. Place on wire rack; let stand until set. Yield: 10 doughnuts.
