Last weekend, Cara pinned a delicious-looking donut hole recipe, and I decided to use my Saturday figuring out a good gluten free donut recipe. It turns out that the Gluten Free Bisquick Mix (remember, the one I did a review on?) works amazingly well for donut holes!
Here’s my super-simple gluten free donut hole recipe:
1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick Mix
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter, melted
oil for frying
Just combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir them together, then add in the milk and melted butter. It should make a playdough-like dough.
Take tablespoon-sized balls and roll them until they’re smooth and round, otherwise they’ll crack and fall apart.
Heat up your cooking oil. It would be best to use a deep fryer, but I don’t have one. My recommendation is to use your smallest skillet and fill it about half full with oil.
Once the oil is hot, drop in the dough balls. They puff up a little while frying, and you only need to leave them in the oil for a few minutes. Turn them so they brown evenly, you want them to be light brown all over when you take them out.
Let them cool for a few minutes and mix up your glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk (use more or less if you want a different consistency for your glaze)
Dip them in and drizzle the glaze all over, them set them out on a cooling rack to dry, and don’t forget to put some wax paper under the rack to make cleanup easy.
This recipe makes about two dozen, so you should share with your friends!
