You won’t believe how simple it is to make these Gluten Free Baked Vanilla Doughnuts. Within 20 minutes time, you can have fresh, warm baked doughnuts on the table.
If you rely on buying all your gluten-free baked goods, you will notice that you are quite limited in what you can enjoy. Sure, there is more available in the stores now than ever before, but you can’t get everything. And what you can get is usually frozen, or at the least, not very fresh. That’s one of the reasons I encourage people to properly stock their pantry. With a properly stocked pantry, you can make nearly anything. You aren’t limited only to what your store carries. And – you can have fresh doughnuts! Just as important as it is to have a great Chocolate Doughnut recipe, it’s also important to have a great Vanilla Doughnut recipe. They are kind of like the ‘little black dress’ of baked doughnuts – you can add any flavour frosting you want to change things up. For these Gluten Free Baked Vanilla Doughnuts, I used a simple vanilla glaze, which is speckled with little black flecks of vanilla seeds. If you don’t have vanilla beans on hand, don’t worry, vanilla extract will work just as well.
For the best tasting vanilla flavour, you can easily make your own vanilla extract. If you don’t want to make your own (or don’t want to wait months to make these doughnuts), I would suggest buying a vanilla extract that reads “Pure Vanilla Extract” on the label, and not “Imitation Vanilla Extract”. Real vanilla extract gives baked goods a much better flavour than imitation extract. Mexican vanilla is also very good.
