Gluten-free Christmas Doughnuts


Hello everybody!

Christmas is just around the corner and that's why the holiday recipes are making themselves pretty numerous these days. i'm trying to calm down my excitement but i have soooo many recipes for you to try out that i just can't restrict myself.



for this post, i added a little plus to it. if you've been following my instagram; you would know that i now have a youtube channel. Yes i have. so the first video was just answering some questions and introducing myself and now this time, for my second video, i made christmas doughnuts with my friends!!! click the video just below to see how it was made and how much fun we had to make them!

Anyways, talking treats, i tried to find the perfect recipe for these doughnuts. me and my grandma researched for quite a bit to find the simplest and most effective recipe on earth. So here you go, this is the result of our internet searching. i hope you like it. oh and if you think the instruction list is long, it's just because i added sentences to the instructions so you understand really well. also, these babies are fried because that's how you really get the texture you tasted in your childhood memories. okay, i think i convince you; go ahead and make these honeys!

ingredients:

For the doughnuts:

- 2 eggs

- 1 cup sugar

- 1 cup almond milk

- 3 tbsp dairy-free butter, melted (or butter)

- 4 cups gluten-free flour

- 1 tbsp baking powder

- 1/2 tsp nutmeg

- vegetable oil


For the icing:

-1/2 cup powdered sugar

- 3 tbsp almond milk

- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

instructions:

for the doughnuts:

- in a big bowl, beat the eggs and the sugar until the mixture becomes white. Add the milk and the melted butter.

- in another bowl, sift the flour, the baking powder and the nutmeg. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the other bowl we mixed earlier until you obtain a ball with the dough.

- don't work the dough too much and roll it down until it's around 6 mm, not less. make sure the dough isn't too thin! Cut with a big round cookie cutter, and then with a smaller round inside to get the doughnut shape. keep the inside, these will make doughnut holes. continue until you've used all the dough; fill out with the smaller round to make doughnut holes . and re-roll it down until all your dough is used.

- heat up a big saucepan with vegetable oil, don't put too much, just so we can see the top of the doughnuts from above. carefully add the doughnuts in the oil and heat 2 minutes on each side, checking from time to time to make sure it doesn't burn. this step should be made with the presence of adults since the oil is burning hot. When they are golden brown, cover the doughnuts with a paper towel to release the excess oil. repeat for all of the doughnuts.

for the icing:

- beat all of the ingredients together and with a piping bag and some sprinkles, decorate the doughnuts only when they have cooled.

eat immediately or store in a fresh place but keep in note that they will harden from being stored. microwave them for 1 minute for them to soften.
