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?

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.

    • We were in Santorini and Athens in August 2015.   We found eating gluten free easy in Greece.   Their cuisine involves fairly simply ingredients, olive oil, salt, and herbs.   My celiac daughter can eat almost all the grilled meats and vegetables.   Obviously you have to avoid the pita.   Also, be careful of the gyro meat, because some places threw beer in their marinade.   My daughter enjoyed lots of grilled fish, seafood, and meats there. We found the Greeks very friendly and accommodating, when we explained that we have to avoid gluten, the servers knew what that is, and were happy to accommodate us. Airport is different.   I have the habit of calling the airline a couple of week before the flight to make sure they have gluten-free meals for my daughter.   But I always pack backups for long flights.
    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks! 
    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
