Donuts Made W/ Yeast And Fried Question
0

7 posts in this topic

I'm hoping someone can give me a clue here. I'm going to try yeast raised donuts (small ones) to fill w/ jelly for Hanukkah this year. Has anyone made them before? Is there any way I can make them in advance? Or do I really have to make them the day we'll eat them?

 

I think I'll try a small batch before the party I hope to have and would really appreciate any thoughts!

 

TIA

I buy them as a mix from Gluten Free Heaven. I do make them as donut holes. The instructions say to roll them out as a snake in sprayed plastic wrap and it works really well, although it takes a little getting used to. Then you just cut them to size and let them raise. They do not keep well, even overnight and I would recommend doing them the same day, and I imagine this will be true of any, including ones you make not from a mix. You can though make and freeze the dough, then get it out and let it raise and fry and fill it the morning of.

I haven't made gluten-free donuts, but I used to make yeast jelly-filled donuts (paczki).  They tasted like heaven, but only just fresh from cooling and filling.  I didn't care for them an hour or so even (maybe I just stuffed myself so much that I got sick of them).  Commercial bakers must use preservatives to keep donuts fresh for hours.  It was a lot of work and mess, so it was only done on holidays.  

 

Make a trial batch before your holiday.  Good luck and keep us posted.

Bahahaha I do that! I just keep grabbing one. It's just one right. Pretty soon I've eaten like a dozen, then more. :ph34r: An hour later I don't even want to see a donut!

I admit that I'm a piggy!  Ate about 8 Snickerdoodle cookies last night.  They tasted so good fresh from the oven (and they were just sitting there on on the cooling rack calling to me!  They taste great straight from the freezer, too!  I'm going to break a tooth someday!  Too impatient to wait for them to defrost!  I ate a frozen brownie too.  I have such a sweet tooth!

Thanks for your help! I'll make a batch but only make a few to see how it works and then freeze the rest of the dough and fry them up on party day. I'll let you know how it comes out!

If it were me, I would fry up 2 or 3 the day before just to make sure they turn out okay. And because who can't use a few donuts the day before a party to get you through the prep. :)

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
