One of our wedding gifts was a BabyCakes Donut Maker. I registered for one, thinking that maybe someone would get it for us, but not getting my hopes up! Well, thanks to Mrs Sharon, we got one!
I couldn't wait to try some of Nicole's, from Gluten Free On A Shoestring, donut recipes!
The first recipe I tried was from her Quick and Easy Cookbook, for Yeast Free Glazed Plain Donuts.
It's supposed to make 15 donuts. When I made them, it made almost thirty donuts. I don't know if I did something wrong with the recipe, but they tasted great!
The donut maker only makes 6 donuts at a time, but they don't take that long to bake at all. And they come out perfect! There really is no way to mess them up.
Mmmm, I can just smell them now!
And after they're glazed, they get even better! Nicole says in her cookbook that the glaze actually seals the moisture in so they keep pretty well for a week or more (at least with my experience they did). We actually kept ours on a plate in the microwave and they lasted a good while.
Look how light and fluffy they are! If you weren't craving one at this point, I bet you are now!
I had such a good experience with the first batch, that I decided to try another recipe!
Maple Blueberry Donuts....this recipe is on her blog. These were amazing!!!
Check out the recipe here.
If you don't have either one of Nicole's cookbooks, you are definitely missing out. (She has another one, all about bread, coming out in November.) They are a great investment!
She also has great recipes on her blog.
You will literally be drooling over the pictures there (don't say I didn't warn you!)
Anyways, I clearly am inspired by her and would one day hope to bake and cook up a storm so effortlessly like her! She makes it look so easy!
I can't wait to make more donuts in the future!
