Gluten Free Old Fashioned Doughnuts
This is a large recipe, so be prepared to feed a crowd, or freeze the leftovers. They freeze beautifully!
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup potato starch (not flour)
  • 2/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  1. Combine eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter in a large bowl. Mix well with a wire whisk or fork.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to the wet. Mix by hand with a large spoon. (Do not use an electric mixer).
  3. Let batter rest for about 15 minutes. Turn dough onto a well-floured surface. If dough is sticky, work in more rice flour blend.
  4. Roll dough 1/2" thick. Cut with a doughnut cutter.
  5. Fry in 1 to 3 inches of very hot oil (375 degrees F) until brown on one side. Turn doughnuts over and brown on second side.
  6. While doughnuts are still warm, toss in a mixture of white sugar & cinnamon to coat. Serve warm.
