...so I purchased a Babycakes Donut Maker for $9 at my grocery store. Why the heck is it so high on Amazon?
Sometimes I have cravings for non-vegan food. That's life.
Brandon (my 8 yr old) has a gluten-intolerance, so I stopped baking desserts for a while. The idea of vegan and gluten-free desserts just didn't sound very appealing to me.
I needed ingredients like potato scratch, xanthan gum, garbanzo bean & rice flour and arrowroot and spent over $40 on gluten-free ingredients. $40!
The verdict? They taste nothing like Krispy Kreme donuts (I didn't expect that) but they did come out pretty light and delicious. They reminded me of a pancake but Eric said they just "taste like a lemon-glazed donut." The boys loved them and we've made the recipe a few times since (posted a pic on Facebook the other day).
Since I have all these ingredients, you can expect more gluten-free baking in the future.
I covered each donut with a simple powdered sugar and lemon glaze.
