Gluten-Free Baked Apple Cider Donuts
Welcoming the apple season with warm Baked Apple Cider Donuts – the best part, they are also gluten-free! The gluten-free sweet donuts are baked, not deep-fried, are made with apple cider, fresh apples, flaxseed, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
After they are baked, then they are coated with brown butter and cinnamon, cardamom sugar.
Everything about these Baked Apple Cider Donuts is delicious. The gluten-free baked donuts are best served slightly warm with a cup of hot coffee or for the kids with hot chocolate—a delightful way to celebrate the beginning of the apple season.
for the Gluten-Free Baked Apple Cider Donuts recipe,
The Baked Apple Cider Donuts recipe couldn’t be simpler to make. But the secret is the apple cider. You can find a good apple cider at most supermarkets, and try to get one without added sugar.
The apple cider is boiled down for intense apple flavour, which makes the donuts taste extra flavourful.
The donut batter is made with two flours, almond flour and a gluten-free flour blend. I used olive oil for the fats, and to sweeten the donuts, I used coconut sugar. If you don’t have coconut sugar, you can use brown sugar.
easy way to fill a donut pan,
Once the batter is made, you can use a disposable piping bag or a ziptop bag and cut a corner off. Pipe the batter into donut pans. I use a large ziptop bag; it takes only about a minute to fill the donut pan, and the donuts take only about twenty minutes to bake.
If you don’t have a donut pan, I highly recommend getting one. They are so much fun to use, and you will get a perfectly shaped donut every time.
You can also make these donuts into small cakes by using a muffin pan. Fill the muffin cups only half-way full and bake for about 12 – 15 minutes until they pass the toothpick test.
for the brown butter spiced sugar coating,
While the donuts are baking, prepare the brown butter and spiced sugar. The butter is first browned, adding a delicious nutty flavour to the butter.
Once the donuts are baked, brush them with the butter and generously roll them in the spiced sugar. All I can say is, these Gluten-Free Baked Apple Cider Donuts are incredibly delicious.
What sets these Apple Cider Donuts apart from the classics is the tasty apple flavour from the boiled down apple cider and fresh apples. You will love them!
The texture is light, the donuts are perfectly sweet, and they bring back memories of warm and cozy autumn feeling. A gluten-free donut that the entire family will love!
