At the Fearless Dining Home, we aren’t strangers to food allergies at all. We have been eating gluten free for over 10 years, but I am trying to start making more egg-free foods, too. Making dietary adjustments is trial and error, but I promise it becomes easier once you get the hang of it.

I know many of you also have egg allergies, and I love making food that anyone can eat. So, if you see a recipe that you would like to see egg-free, be sure to reach out because I am happy to help adapt it to fit your needs too.

These little egg-free donuts are light, fluffy, egg-free vanilla donuts that look and taste amazing. You can skip the bakery and make these scrumptious and moist donuts at home instead. They freeze well so that you can have donuts at any time! If you are a donut fanatic like me, you will want to check out ALL of my amazing Gluten Free Donut recipes!

Thank you so much for this recipe! My son has so many food allergies, and because of your recipe, he got to experience eating his very first donut! 🤗💜 And he loves them! Even my son without food allergies 😍 them as well.”

Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

  • Gluten Free Flour Blend – I tested this donut recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure Flour. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 3/4 teaspoon.
  • Sugar – Use cane sugar.
  • Baking Powder and Salt – Use aluminum-free baking powder.
  • Egg Replacer – I tested this recipe using Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer.
  • Butter – I recommend unsalted butter.
  • Vanilla – I recommend using pure vanilla extract and not imitation vanilla.
  • Non-Dairy Milk – I used almond milk, but other dairy-free kinds of milk will work I do not recommend canned coconut milk.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

The egg free donut recipe dry ingredients.

Step 1: Add your dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk to blend. In a separate bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk well.

Step 2: Add the wet ingredients to a smaller bowl and whisk to blend. I recommend partially melting the butter by microwaving it in a small microwave-safe dish for 25 seconds.

Step 3: Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Preheat your donut maker or your oven.

Step 4: Next, add your donut batter to the donut maker. (Note: my version of the Babycakes donut maker is older. In the newer version, the unit is square and makes 4 donuts simultaneously.)

Cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove the donuts and allow cooling.

Oven Baking Directions:

Yes, you can definitely make this egg-free vanilla donut recipe in a donut pan. Preheat your oven to 350º F. Spray your donut pan with gluten-free baking spray. Pipe or spoon the donut batter into the donut pan. When the oven is preheated, bake your donuts for 20 minutes.

Optional toppings:

You can top the donuts with anything you like. Here are a few ideas that taste great with these gluten free egg-free vanilla donuts.

  • Nuts – Add your favorite crushed donuts on top of them. They have a nice crunch that tastes great with the donuts.
  • Chocolate – Drizzle some melted chocolate on top of the gluten free donuts. It’s easy and looks lovely too.
  • Sprinkles – Use your favorite gluten free sprinkles and top the eggless donuts. Sprinkles add some vibrant color!

These donuts are amazing, and you won’t even miss that fried donut flavor when you try them. If you prefer a fried donut, check out this Gluten Free Jelly Donut recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you have to fry donuts?

No, there are several recipes for donuts that don’t require them to be fried. My gluten free no egg donuts recipe is baked instead of fried. That will save you lots of calories, and it’s much less messy than frying food.

How long do homemade donuts last?

These donuts will last 1-2 days if stored in an airtight container. Remember that homemade donuts are always best when eaten the day they are made. Just like store-bought donuts, they tend to age rather quickly. 

For best results, let the donuts cool all the way down before putting them in a container. Otherwise, condensation will build up, and you will notice they are super wet and possibly even mushy. 

Can I freeze donuts?

Yes, you can freeze these eggless donuts. Place the cooked donuts on a cookie sheet and prevent them from touching each other. Then, place the pan in the freezer for 2-3 hours until they are frozen. Take them out and toss them into a freezer bag or airtight container. 

If you plan on freezing the donuts, skip frosting or icing them. When you’re ready to eat them, toss them in the fridge or set them on the counter. Once they have defrosted, you can eat them.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend in this recipe. That doesn’t mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 3/4 teaspoon.
  3. These donuts will keep up to 4 days in an airtight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.

  1. 5 stars
    If I want to make regular size donuts, would I double the recipe? If I want to use eggs instead of egg replacer, how many would I use per recipe?

  2. This is AWSOME I have allergies so I’m always on the lookout for this type of things

  3. I am always on the hunt for gluten-free goodies! I LOVE the texture of these — soft cake donuts are my absolute fave! It couldn’t get any better 🙂
