Oh let the cravings begin… uh isn’t the pregnant one suppose to have the cravings? I have been craving Donuts for a long time, and thanks to my mom giving us her donut pans we have lift off. We didn’t have all of the ingredients that the original recipe so let the substitutions begin!
Cake Donuts Recipe
Makes about 12 donettes and 4-5 donuts, or ~12 donuts
Ingredients & Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingedients:
1 c sorghum flour (or sweet jowar flour)
1/2 c organic brown rice flour
1/2 c tapioca starch/flour
2 tbsp hazelnut flour or almond flour ( I used Teff)
1/3 c packed light brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 c non-dairy/non-soy Shortening ( I used canola oil, didn’t have any shortening)
1/2 c non-dairy/non-soy sour cream or yogurt (plain) (I omitted, didn’t have any on hand)
1/4 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk (I used Almond milk)
1 tbsp Ener-G Egg Replacer (for two eggs mixed with a scant 1/4 cup warm water )
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add the oil first in the upright mixer until the flour mix becomes sand textured.
Add Alond milk, egg replacer and vanilla extract, and mix until the dough forms a smooth and pliable dough. It should be slightly sticky- but not too sticky to handle.
Divide the dough into equal sections (for the amount of pan spots you have) and roll each piece in your palms to form a ball roughly the size of a golf ball.
Gently roll the dough into a log shape about 4 to 5 inches long. Drape the dough into the well of a donut pan, and slightly overlap the two ends to make a circle. Repeat as necessary.
Using oily or slightly wet fingers, smooth out the dough evenly but don’t push it down into the well.
Bake in the center of a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes, until firm to the touch.
The Donettes baked 9 minutes and the Donuts 10 minutes.
Remove the pan and remove the donuts from the pan and place them bottom side up on a wire rack.
When cooled a bit, sift confectioner’s sugar or a mix of confectioner’s sugar and ground cinnamon all over the donuts.
Makes one dozen mini donuts. Put the extras ( yeah, I know ….) in a sealed container and they tasted great the next day!
