Gluten Free Heaven And Donuts!

Okay, so I said I would share and here it is. This woman is absolutely amazing. This weekend I had the chance to try her bread, which tasted like bread. (I'm admittedly lazy and will continue to buy bread.) But that isn't what is special.

 

Special is the donuts. I thought I would die right there on the spot when I popped a little fresh fried donut in my mouth. I could have stood there all afternoon and eaten them until I was sick. My gluten eating husband says they were amazing too.

 

I brought home a package of donut mix and red velvet cake mix and will probably make the cake sometime this week and I'm sure will report back that it was as great as the donuts.

 

Anyway, I can not say enough good things about how wonderful her things were that I tried, the donuts most of all. And I pointed this out in another thread I believe, but Betty Crocker also was so impressed with her biscuit mix that it is the new and improved (as in, not so sucky) gluten free Bisquick. So go, get yourself some donuts, and be happy!

I'm spoiled, I don't even have to pay for shipping. I can just email or call her and drive on up to her house or have her drop it off while she's down my way. But yes, frozen pie crusts. And for the lazy days, the donuts come frozen and ready to defrost and fry!

Are they anything like Krispy Kreme donuts or like cake donuts?

 

 

Edited to add, forget the question, she doesn't ship.

I'm sure that if there is enough interest outside the area she would start doing shipping right on her site, or if you email her she can quote you a shipping price. The bags aren't very large and I mail things to my kids all the time using those flat rate postal boxes, which I think are $12.95 for a medium box. Right now I only have the skinny boxes and none of the more square ones, but you could probably fit a a half dozen mixes in a box, maybe a few more at that price. Or maybe it would be cheaper to do "regular" shipping, I don't know. I don't mess with that nonsense because I like the 2 day stuff.

 

The donuts are like a glazed donut from Dunkin Donuts. I was never familiar with Krispy Kreme, I ate one once and frankly hated it.

Just saw this as a link on her site on the bottom left under information "shipping & returns" http://www.glutenfreeheaven.com/~glutenfr/shipping.php

 

I would just use the contact us page and ask about having an order shipped and the cost. Her website is brand new (as in set up just this weekend) even though she has been in business for a fairly long time and she may not have a shipping option set up yet.

Looks like good prices. The doughnuts intrigue me. Are they light and puffy and airy or cakey? That has sort of been asked but we want DETAILS!!! The other stuff is easy to make but doughnuts are not (gluten free). But the convenience would sometimes be awesome. Spill it!

They're puffy! Like if you bite one in half the inside looks just like a Dunkin Donuts donut. And it melts in your mouth in the same way and has just the same amount of melty/chewiness.

 

omg... now I don't know if I should make my cake or donuts first!

This thread is so funny!!!!!!!  Now, sitting here in New England, where DD's started, I can still taste a donut and it's been over 8 years since I had a gluten one.  You do realize, Addy, that your address will become a gluten free stop on any Celiac's road tour of the West?  I have wanted to come to Utah and now I have an added reason....donuts that are ready for the hot oil!

Just stop up in Lehi, pick up the donuts, call me and swing on down to fry them. As long as you're sharing the donuts I'll give you an uncontaminated fryer to use! :D

 

Or you know... just use the "contact us" link and ask her how to get the mix sent to your house. Since the website is brand new I'm guessing that that could be why it doesn't have that set up yet.

I was lucky enough to have my first gluten-free doughnut a couple weeks ago, from a gluten-free/vegan bakery here in toronto. More cakey than fry-ey, but ooohhhh sooooo goooood! Good thing this place is a bit out of the way for me, or I might end up with a doughnut habit.

They also had pretty fantastic gluten-free/vegan bread. Aparently the baker went through over a dozen recipes before figuring out what worked.

 

Anyway, if I'm ever in Utah, I'll look this up.

If you're ever in Toronto, go all the way east on Queen St to Tori's Bakeshop in the Beaches. A little $$ but so so worth it.

 

Also, gluten-free red velvet cake would be awesome

They're just mixes that you fry up yourself, so you could theoretically just form that habit anyway from all the way up there. :P

 

I don't think I'll ever see the shipping option on her website because I live to close to ever have that option. It would truly be cheaper for her to take a day to deliver south in this area than to mail everything. Plus all the health food stores are down here. :lol: But yeah, just get some donut mix shipped on up to you. It says it makes something between a dozen and a half and two dozen donuts if I remember correctly. Where else you going to get that many donuts for $4?

I'm going to give fair warning on the cake mix. I made mine into cupcakes last night. In the past when I have made gluten free cupcakes they puff up just a little so when I made these I expected the same thing. Instead it performed exactly as a gluten cake batter and raised as I would have expected a gluten cake to. So if you make cupcakes, leave room! Eek! Overfull or not, they're still yummy though.

 

And don't do what I did. I forgot to go out and buy cream cheese to make frosting. :ph34r: I'm stuck with regular buttercream on red velvet. That should be a crime.

Thanks for the tip! I will make sure I leave room and that I have the proper frosting! I don't think the buttercream on red velvet is a crime bc I happen to really like buttercream!

 

I'll let you know when I get my package

I am fortunate that my friend who owns a gluten-free bakery makes donuts on Fridays.

 

Glazed, Boston creme with chocolate frosting. lemon filled and a strawberry frosted number with sprinkles that kids like.

 

I have tried them on occasion and they are soft and squishy and puffy, but if I continue to indulge, that is how they will describe me

"soft, squishy, and puffy".

FYI guys, red velvet cake is one of the easiest recipes to convert to gluten-free IF you can tolerate milk. I used my old recipe, since it uses buttermilk and vinegar...subbing gluten-free flour and xanthan and there's literally no difference.

I've found most gluten-free recipes don't use buttermilk or vinegar or cocoa...which to me is NOT a red velvet cake. Club soda *may* be a sub for buttermilk. I've been meaning to try but haven't yet....

Anyway, I've been thinking of trying buttermilk donuts since I've found buttermilk makes such a huge difference in baking gluten-free (where I use it).

Yes, some recipes are easy. Still... when a mix is as simple as this with as few ingredients and has what I would probably add if I made it myself? Plus the simplicity of having something around the house I can just keep in the pantry for an emergency to throw buttermilk at and have cake? Yes please. I do usually prefer to bake from scratch, really, but frankly it is just tiring sometimes to measure 600 kinds of flour for one cake. And I don't use any AP flours because of the ones I've found they all either have something in them I can't have or I just plain old don't like them because of taste or texture. I've also only ever turned out a gluten free cake batter that performs like a gluten free cake batter. Having one that performs like a gluten cake batter and tastes like this does is more than enough to part me with my $4 again and again. I can't imagine I'll make red velvet cupcakes more than 2-3 times a year.

 

Donuts on the other hand. She'll probably part me with a fair amount of cash over that one...

Mmmmm. Drooling.

 

I've never made donuts before. Donut virgin. But I think today is a good day to try. Must google... What oil is best for frying donuts in?

I keep peanut oil in my fryer. I don't know if there is a best. I suppose you could start calling local Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kremes and see what they use.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
    • It was difficult yes, but on reflection worthwhile as the gluten challenge confirmed that a wide spectrum of symptoms were all either fully or mostly resolved on a gluten free diet and resuming it saw them reappear. Once you know this it doesn't really matter what blood tests say, you don't want eat gluten ever again, or at least I did't. It sounds like you're happy to go gluten free, you may want to take a look here for some tips:  Best of luck, hope you find as much support here as I have  
    • If she was just tested for DQ2 or DQ8 then it isn't for sure that she will never develop celiac.  There are other genes that have been found to be associated but not all doctors are aware. The gene I have a double copy of, DQ9, is one example.  Here is one research article but more can be found for those interested.  Evidence that HLA-DQ9 confers risk to celiac disease by presence of DQ9-restricted gluten-specific T cells http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0198885912000262
    • Well, thank you for replying. Yes, I would also like to know and have a certain "validation" but I will go on to eat gluten free.  Thank you for the idea of keeping a food diary.  I was keeping one for weight loss, but I guess my primary focus will be gluten-free as well.  I'm sorry you had to eat gluten just to find out both tests were negative. That was disappointing, I can only imagine. 
    • Thank you everyone. Jmg & cycling lady sorry for being snippy . I appreciate your help just frustrated. sorry if I am a bit snippy. Not well as you sense. I hate this particular symptom/ reaction. The gluten challenge opened the door to a bunch of  symptoms I buried for 3 1/2 gluten-free years that I had no intention of waking again. I now know it's always been immune and food, but get frustrated over the the amount of time it has not been diagnosed it feels unjust and that most Dr still don't get it 38 years later.  It was reborn after my gluten challenge and I am beyond sad we discovered my DS has this too. As we removed my allergens from the house and my DS was off the foods, if he ate something at school or a friends (because we just removed it for mom) we quickly found and he that he's like mom. He looks like dads mini me but more handsome, but has moms food issues -yikes.  His ped Dr would not test him for celiac or refer him and does not understand food intolerances vs IgE allergies. when we ask for a prescription for allergen free Advil or Tylenol ( I found a compounding  pharamacy willing to work with us) he had ortho work done , she tells us she does not know how to write a prescription for that.   We really don't like reactions and it did say 100 percent juice and quite frankly we believed it.  The histamine  definetly a potential issue as sulphites does not seem consistent food diary wise. I am not sure what is going on. More likely we are celiacs with leaky guts manifesting as food sensitivities trying to heal. I just know I have more intolerances then when I went in. I went into the challenge not being able to eat gluten and came out with all heck breaking lose.  I quit my PT job so I can Prep and cook from scratch entirely growing all my own herbs etc trying to heal. My husband actually enjoys our food even more and tolerates the "woman he married being gone and replaced by this alien" my words not his. He does want me to heal, believes I will, so he can have his wife back. I question if I just have to accept who I am now. I am disheartened that it's slow to heal and despite my years of this undiagnosed garbage I can't get my son the help he needs in 2017! thanks for letting me rant. It was stupid to believe a processed juice maker I'm waiting to activate my water kefir colony so we can add something to our homemade almond milk and water options.   thanks for letting me rant and why do I still have to rant.   maybe the 43 years of frustration and anger of being an undiagnosed celiac.   so sorry y'all. Cranky few days
