Gluten & Milk Free Homemade Donuts
Well, I tried to replicate what MaMa with Flavor did with The Pioneer Woman's Homemade Donut recipe, turning it into Gluten and Milk Free. It did not quite work as I had hoped :(
They turned out more like heavy cake donuts rather than fluffy yeast donuts.
I would recommend trying these if you want to using your own substitutes. The flavor was EXCELLENT, I think the flours I used were just too heavy for this - and perhaps more yeast is needed as well.
I followed The Pioneer Woman's recipe exactly as she lays it out (she has a very good pictorial as well ;) but made the following changes
First, I cut the whole recipe in half, there are only 2 of us - 1 is a diabetic and we both need to watch what we eat,so was MORE than enough for 2 people!
Milk - Soy Milk (the one that is only soybeans/water - nothing else added)
Butter - Milk Free Margarine
All Purpose Flour - Mix of Amaranth, Millet, Quinoa, Rice, Tapioca
I hope someone else does try this and is successful!!!
