    Quick and Easy Donut Holes (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe comes to us from M. Haggerty.

    1 egg
    ½ cup sugar
    1 tablespoon oil
    3/8 cup buttermilk
    1 ¾ cup all purpose gluten-free flour
    1 ¾ teaspoons xanthan gum
    1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
    ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

    Beat egg and add sugar and oil and buttermilk, then mix together and add dry ingredients.

    Fry in a skillet at 370-380F: Drop by teaspoons as donut holes, about 6 at a time so as to maintain the temperature. While still warm shake them in a paper bag with sugar/cinnamon.

    Scott, the donut holes were a hit. My daughter was feeling left out at church because she couldn't have donuts once a month when we have our donut and fruit social before Sunday School hour. She thoroughly enjoyed them and has asked for more. Next month I will make more for her for our next donut and fruit social and she can enjoy them for a couple of days. Thanks again for the recipe.

    I have been craving donuts like crazy lately, longingly searching for some gluten-free ones. Then, I found this recipe and made some of my own! These turned out delicious! I substituted plain yogurt for the buttermilk, and they taste great with a little powdered sugar on them!

    I added quite a bit more milk and substituted some of the flour for corn starch. I didn't have buttermilk, so I added 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. I think rather than add more milk, that I will cut back on the flour by 1/2 cup and see what the consistency is next time. They remind me of sweet hushpuppies in consistency. They definitely helped with our donut craving, and we used relatively inexpensive staples!
