How to make Gluten Free jelly donuts

Gluten Free: Missing Filled Donuts

I have been Gluten Free for clost to 3 years. One of the things I miss most is a good yeast raised filled donut.

While there are frozen baked donuts available they still do not fill the void of a good Jelly, Boston Cream or Lemon donut leaves. While it is very hard to duplicate the effects of wheat flour and yeast, this recipe absolutely satisfies the craving on donut day.

This recipe is for jelly but can easily be modified for Boston Cream or any other filling topping combination you want to make.


Cook Time

Prep time: 24 hours
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 25 hours
Yields: 12 Med/Large Donuts

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Fine Ground White Rice Flour, Sifted
  • 2 Cups Bob's Red Mill GF All purpose flout
  • 1 Pkg Yeat
  • 2 Tblsp arrowroot starch
  • 1 tsp Cream of Tarter
  • 1 tsp Xanthium Gum
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar, For Dusting
  • 2/3 Cup Milk, Warm
  1. Add a package of yeast to lukewarm milk (less that 110 degree). Set aside for 10 minutes to let the yeast bloom
  2. In a mixer add the milk, sugar, eggs and vanilla and mix together.
  3. In the mixer slowly add in the flour 1/4 cup at a time. Then add the Arrowroot, cream of tarter, xanthan gum and apple cider vinegar. This should form a thick sticky batter / or wet dough. (Add more milk if needed)
  4. Remove from mixer, cover and let rise in a warm place for 2 hours.
  5. On a heavily floured area roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out to shape. Quickly gather and roll out the dough again and cut. Repeat until dough is gone
  6. Place the cut donuts on floured silicon mat or sheet of parchment. Flour the tops with Gluten Free Flout and cover with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator to rise overnight.
  7. The next day.. warm up 2 inches of oil in a deep frying pan or heat up deep fryer.
  8. Cook donuts in oil until deep golden brown on one side Flip and cook the other side
  9. Remove from oils and set on cooling rack.
  10. While cooling prepare a pastry bag with jelly. For each donut make a hole with the back end of a wooden spoon. Gently wiggle the spoon to make a pocket for the filling. Using the pastry bag pipe the hole full of filling. Make sure to gradually remove the tip of the piping bag as you fill .
  11. Dust the donut with powder sugar using a sifter.

How much milk are you supposed to add? There is no milk quantity listed in the ingredients.
