I have been wanting to make some yeast raised gluten free donuts, but was so excited when I discovered picarones. They are also risen donuts, but made with a sweet squash (pumpkin in this case) and sweet potatoes. They are also known as Peruvian donuts as they are popular in Peru. You can make these gluten free donuts using fresh or canned pumpkin. Just note that fresh pumpkin tends to vary in moisture and may not turn out the same. Meanwhile, enjoy these delightful treasures. Picarones leave a lasting impression to tourists who visit Peru.

In a mood for a healthier alternative to donuts? These gluten free apple rings may just fit the bill. Rather than starch filled donuts, these fritter-like rings are filled with the natural sweetness, nature intended.

Though the batter is thinner, it can be made thicker simply by adding an additional tablespoon or so of rice flour. Top them with powdered sugar or an apple cinnamon caramel sauce (recipe included).

Deep-fried foods are eaten up to and through Hanukkah. Continue reading “Gluten Free Jelly Donuts or Custard”

These are my favorite gluten free donuts, chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate! I had run across the cardboard wrapper that surrounded my donut pan and had been craving them, as I see it quite often. My husband’s favorite type of donuts are chocolate, and he’s coming home today from out of town. I thought what better way to greet him than have chocolate gluten free donuts awaiting him? Well, the first batch I forgot to add the milk, which caused them to be too dry. They already had been placed in the oven when I realized it. Gee, where was my mind that day? Well, I played around with 2 different batches today, and finally achieved success! Enjoy! And if you’re dairy-free, see “Tips” for a great dairy free ganache.
