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.

    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!     
    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
    •   Could try causally asking your family to get the blood test done next time they are at the doctors. They could have it and only have minor or no symtoms to it. There is a form of it called silent celiacs with no outward symptoms but it is still destroying your villi and causing your body to slowly degrade. Doing so could shed some light on other issues, make family more understanding to your issues, and help them out in the long run.    I was adopted at only a few weeks old, so my issues run a bit deeper with both leaning about this disease and getting anyone in the family to understand it. Does not help my birth mother still to this day refuses to release updated medical records or accept any kind of contact.    >.> I give advice all the time, I like to feel useful to others, and can be oblivious to others feelings and reactions due to a form of autism called Aspergers.  Bit of a pain, but the feeling of being of use to others is very rewarding even if sometimes confused with being helpful over being a ass or someone overly intrusive.    I just wish others had helped me out earlier with this disease.   PS Anonymous, you keep posting on older threads, ALOT recently. Not a bad thing, just something I picked up on and piqued my interest/concern with how out of date some information might be.
    • Hello Anonymous, and if nobody has said as much yet, welcome Don't worry (difficult to do when it can cause anxiety :P) it's very early days and you have a lot of healing to come.  If you've not already seen it there's advice and further info here:    It gets easier over time as checking becomes routine, you know your 'safe' products and your eating pattern changes. You'll get there  Maybe start a thread of your own if you'd like some input from others? Finally, back on topic. My Aunt has narcolepsy and although she's fiercely resistant to giving up gluten she has now made a connnection to eating bread and it's onset. As often, not conclusive but suggestive...
    • Hello again   Well first thing is the - Usual disclaimers apply... and this is something you have to follow up with your doctors as you know. But it's helpful sometimes to get another perspective so here's this layman see's from outside.  What I have seen from the various results posted here is that people's numbers vary wildly and, just as important, the numbers often don't bear any direct relationship to the level of intestinal damage revealed via endoscopy. Ultimately although you're not scoring much above positive, you are scoring a positive  and there are a couple of other risk factors you've mentioned that are suggestive if not conclusive - you have another autoimmune which raises the odds of having another one for example.  You've had two tests that are positive. The purpose of taking the second test was either to invalidate or confirm the first. I'd suggest it's achieved the latter, at least inasmuch as a GI may want to check you via endoscopy. That's still the 'gold standard' of celiac diagnosis and would give you an idea if there's any intestinal damage. I suspect with 2 positive tests and the history above that's what they'll suggest.  If your doctor or GI doesn't want to proceed with that you have a decision to make. Push for a second opinion or new doctor or if you're done with testing give the gluten free diet a proper try. Make a journal and see if some of those subtle things you reference may actually be symptoms. Fwiw, there are a lot of people here whose thyroid issues improved dramatically once they were gluten free, so whether celiac or gluten sensitive you should certainly give the diet a try. Only however once the testing is completed and remember:
