Today is special for two reasons.
It is National Donut Day, and even more importantly, my son’s birthday! I have no idea where the years have gone…but all of a sudden, I have a 5’8 growing teenage boy. My son loves gluten free baked chocolate donuts and I am hoping that he will love this new chocolate donut recipe.
With two very important occasions today, I wanted to celebrate his birthday with a treat he will remember for years. He loves chocolate.
He is also VERY guilty of trying to steal cookie dough anytime I am baking. I am not kidding….he never gives up. (He gets this from Mr. Fearless Dining…it must be genetic!)
We hope you like these gluten free chocolate donuts as much as our son did!”
Today, I am combining both of his favorite sweet things into one special dessert! Here is the Gluten Free Edible Cookie Dough Frosting recipe.
This easy cookie dough frosting recipe is quick and easy, and is delicious on any baked item…or just eat it by the spoonful!
How to make gluten free chocolate donuts:
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
Mix the wet ingredients and whisk to blend. Pour the wet ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
This is what your chocolate donut batter will look like when mixed.
Add the batter to your donut maker. Note this is an older model Babycakes Donut Maker, the new donut maker has a more square body shape. Cook for 4-5 minutes until done.
Allow cooling then frost with the cookie dough frosting.
Baked donuts are a lot healthier than fried donuts.
Frosting or Glaze?
This cookie dough frosting works so well with this doughnut recipe. Of course, this gluten free edible cookie dough is also good enough to frost a cake like this Simple Gluten Free Layer Cake recipe.
You can also make a glaze for your gluten free donuts with powdered sugar and a little water. (2 cups powdered sugar to 1/4 cup almond milk.) Just dip your donuts in and then set onto a rack to dry.
And just in case these chocolate donuts with cookie dough frosting aren’t enough, here are a few more of my most popular donut recipes to get you through your day.
