More About This Recipe
These strawberry cake donuts are a treat for the gluten-free eaters among us. Or for any of us.
When gluten-free donuts started making an appearance in the form of fake donuts, I went a little ... well ... nutty.
After all, as a new g-free eater, I was all sorts of sad to lose my favorite pastries. Unsure I could live without cakes and cupcakes and ... oh! The mini donut. What is life without the mini donut?!
Turns out, we gluten-free eaters will never have to find out. Because not only are there now faux donuts for sale, but we’ve officially hacked the recipe so you can make them at home.
Sometimes when I start trying to recreate a popular recipe, I get a little overwhelmed. This one of those recipes. I worried it would be hard to make, and too much work to really be worth it.
Imagine my surprise to discover that Betty Crocker gluten-free cake mix not only makes it as easy as 1-2-3, but it also turns out a batch of superdelicious g-free donuts.
Ready to make these bad boys? Watch closely! They come out of the oven quick!
First, you'll need one of these donut pans. Who knew?
Start with gluten-free cake mix. You’ll also want some gluten-free strawberry fruit spread. Two eggs. And butter. Whip, blend, batter.
Then scoop it all into a donut pan. You definitely don’t want to overfill your batter pan, so just fill each cup about 2/3 of the way.
Bake and prepare to glaze.
The glaze is so great. You just blend strawberries with powdered sugar in a blender.
Then, voila! A delicious icing, ready to dip and drizzle all over your cake donuts.
And now only one step is left. Eat one now ... or dive straight into two of ‘em?
Happy gluten-free donut nibbling, my fellow g-free friends!
