Dunkin Donuts gluten-free?!

ACTUAL doughnuts? Cake doughnuts are real doughnuts too. :)  I know you are referring to raised doughnuts, but think about a true French cruller. Those are cake doughnuts and they're delicious with all of those crunchy crusty little nubbins.

 

Dunk's makes both kinds of doughnuts - cake and raised. I don't know what the new gluten-free one is, but I'd guess that if Udi's doughnuts are raised, Dunk's might be too. Personally, I wish they'd make both, and I WISH (!!!!!) there were a Dunk's near me!!!!

Only when they are A: chocolate or B: covered in chocolate. They can of course be both, such as a Dunford donut. (Of which I believe I ate 3 between diagnosis and going gluten free, which was less than a week. :blink:) I think whether or not cake donuts classify as actual donuts is a matter of opinion. :P

I like both, but if there could only be one kind of doughnut in the world, I would vote for a plain cake doughnut. NOTHING is better dunked into coffee. (Although I always ask for a second cup just for dunking. That way my other cup of plain black coffee doesn't get contaminated with sweetness.)

 

When I worked at doughnut shops (I've worked at a couple over the years), I always kept a "glazed", raised doughnut aside and ate it without the glaze while it was still warm. Tastes just like what Easterers call "frydough" and westerners call "frybread". Even at the fair, I would always eat my frydough plain. Don't anyone DARE to put powdered sugar or even worse, maple syrup on my bread!! Except for ice cream, I have never really liked sweet stuff.

 

But I eat enough ice cream to more than make up for it. :lol:

The new DD gluten free donut is an old fashioned cake donut coated with cinnamon sugar.

Made and packaged in a gluten free facility, per their website.

Yes, I used to make crullers when I was a kid.  And yeast (risen) doughnuts which is my personal preference.  Cake doughnuts seem like "cheater" doughnuts to me - sort of like using canned spaghetti sauce.  :lol:    Cake doughnuts are not "real" doughnuts in my neck of the woods for some reason.  Weird, I know...  ^_^

The fight between cake donuts and raised donuts is as heated as that between the Boston Red Sox and the NY Yankees!  :lol:   DD's makes both types.  I think around here in Boston, it's a pretty even split on cake and raised.  I never really liked donuts after the age of 15 because, funny enough, I felt horrible after eating them.  I don't miss donuts at all but I would love it if I could have Grapenut Pudding again!  It's a double bad for me....both gluten and dairy!  :(

What is a cake donut?

Often They are plainest donut available.  Often they are frosted and pretty sprinkles go on top.  They are also sometimes dipped in powdered sugar, granulated sugar, or left plain.  They are small compared to glazed donuts.  glazed donuts are golden brown, but I would consider cake donuts to be light brown.  I use to work in a bakery long ago.  I wouldn't dare walk into one now.

I've only seen the cinnamon donuts and sometimes they are iced, are the cake donuts made like cakes?  Sorry, trying to picture it, should go and google.

They are a couple of inches across with a traditional hole in the middle.  They are sort of like quick bread in that one doesn't have to raise them before cooking.  I believe a cinnamon donut is a cake donut dipped in cinnamon sugar-usually around my bakery, anyway.

Cake doughnuts are fried, just like raised doughnuts. They just don't have yeast in them so they are denser. Think about those little packages of Hostess mini doughnuts you can get at convenience stores - they are usually powdered sugar-coated. Or the boxes of doughnuts you can buy in the grocery store. Those usually have plain, powdered sugar, and cinnamon covered.

 

Of course, the one's you buy at Dunk's or other bakeries are MUCH better than the preservative-filled ones from grocery or convenience stores. Although I must admit, NONE of them can come close to being as good as the ones my Mom used to make when I was a kid.

I ate a frozen gluten-free donut once and it was very good.  I've also eaten some incredible gluten-free chocolate cupcakes.  The next day though, I pay.  I've chalked it up to the sugar content but who knows.

 

Obviously, donuts aren't healthy, but I think the availability of gluten-free donuts is great for people with families and for kids who could use some normalcy in their lives.  Bravo for DD.  I dream of a world without gluten in it.

Hmm, I think they might be different here?  The ones we buy are vegan and gluten free, made fresh in store at the little shop we go to where they make the gfv sausages and raw vegan, gluten free hazelnut cheesecakes and monkey ball (also raw vegan and gluten free) lunch box treats.

My daughter requested a donut this morning (she's NOT gluten free).  So, it's almost the end of summer and she hasn't had a real donut for sometime.  Went to Dunkin Donuts, but alas they did not have a gluten-free version yet. 

 

I can recommend Kinnikinnick's gluten-free frozen donuts.  Just thaw on the counter and microwave for 10 seconds to warm it up.  The cinnamon donuts are especially good! 

 

I love baking, but I haven't made homemade donuts since going gluten-free.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
