This is part two of my gigantic donut binge last week :-).
Every now and then I just NEED gluten free donuts. Nobody in my family seemed to mind helping me out with this problem.
Mr. Fearless Dining was out of town, thank goodness. He is trying so hard to stay away from the sweets I make. It is hard when we both work from home and I am making something hard to resist. I don’t think he knows what he missed last week, so I am crossing my fingers he doesn’t see this post. (Don’t tattle on me!)
These gluten free vanilla pudding donuts are just the bomb. There are a few words to describe how good they are. These gluten free vanilla donuts are that good!!
Moist, crispy on the edges, bursting with vanilla flavors…they are definitely memorable.
Vanilla Pudding Mix
The secret to this moist, delicious gluten free vanilla donut recipe is the pudding. It adds a whole new level of yumminess to this simple gluten free donut recipe.
A note about the pudding I used. I used regular pudding and not the instant mix. I don’t know if it makes a difference, but I wanted to let you know so you knew what to shop for on your next trip to the grocery store.
How do you use a donut maker?
I know I talk about my donut maker a lot. (I see that Babycakes redesigned their donut maker so it looks a little different than this. Both work the same. This is what I use to make donuts. Luckily, these are not fried so they are a lot healthier to eat 🙂
I like to spray a little coconut oil on the donut maker so it makes the outside of the donuts a little crispy, just like they were fried. This donut maker will cook your donuts in just 4-5 minutes!
Can you use a donut pan to bake these donuts?
You can definitely use a donut pan to make this gluten free vanilla donut recipe. I highly recommend spraying it with coconut oil for a little crisp to the outside of the donuts. Bake the donuts for 20-25 minutes at 350F degrees.
