Are you ready to make these yummy gluten free egg-free donuts?
Add your dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend. In a separate bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk well.
I have tested three gluten free flour blends in this recipe. I liked King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure, Nameste GF Flour, and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. This doesn't mean other blends won't work, I just haven't tested any others. Try to avoid flour blends that are high in starch.
As always, if your blend does not contain Xanthan Gum, you will need to add 1 teaspoon.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Preheat your donut maker.
Can I bake these donuts in a donut pan?
Yes, you can definitely make this egg-free vanilla donut recipe in a donut pan. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. When the temperature is ready, bake your donuts for 20 minutes.
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 at a time.)
Cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove the donuts and allow cooling.
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!
Do you have to fry donuts?
No, there are several recipes for donuts that don't require them to be fried. My gluten free egg-free vanilla donuts recipe is baked instead of fried. That will save you lots of calories, and it's much less messy than frying food.
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.
How long do homemade donuts last?
These donuts will last 1-2 days if they are stored in an airtight container. Keep in mind that homemade donuts always are best when you eat them 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 that 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.
You will want to skip frosting or icing the donuts if you plan on freezing them. Toss the donuts in the fridge or set them on the counter when you're ready to eat them. Once they have defrosted, you can eat them.
