"I had so much trouble finding GF donuts that I had to play around in the kitchen to make one myself. The consistency is light, airy, and resembles a yeast donut. Enjoy!"

olive oil for frying, or as needed
gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
Definitely a keeper recipe! If you are looking for a "feed that craving" donut this is for you! The fact that it is GF is simply a plus, but will satisfy anyone; celiac or not. The coconut flavour is not overpowering which is something I was concerned about. They are easy and fast to make. The ratios of flours and liquids are right on as are the instructions. I used a soup spoon to drop the batter in the oil and they held together perfectly. The first half of the batter I used as directed, then I added about 1/2 Tbsp of baking powder and that lightened them up even more. The original recipe yields a light and delicious donut. The addition of the baking powder rendered even more light and delicate giving it the stretch and airy texture you get with yeast donuts, the kind that simply melt in your mouth. I ended up with 15 donuts, each about 2.5 inches in diameter. Thank you Michelle2s for this fantastic recipe. No need to cry when passing by the donut shop anymore! :-)
These were pretty good. However, the taste was very bland. I added about 2 teaspoons of nutmeg. It was also not sweet enough, so i made a cream cheese pumpkin filling, and that turned out great. (If you like pumpkin) Otherwise, a great treat.
This was a fantastic recipe, and it was so happy to find it. I was a little nervous at the lack of other's reviews, but needed a gf recipe for a school function. I made the recipe as instructed, with only modifying the baking powder as mentioned in the review. They did puff up a lot more, but almost had that bp aftertaste.
Frying them in exclusively olive oil seemed like a bad idea, b/c of the low smoke point of evoo, so I went with half coconut oil, and half evoo, which worked fine. We are not a gf house, but our diet is close, so instead of powdered sugar I rolled the lovely donuts in evaporated cane juice. YUM.
Thanks for this recipe! It is good and easy enough to make weekly, and keep my family out of dunkin donuts.
