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?

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.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
