DELICIOUS!!! We made them tonight for a casual family dinner party and everyone LOVED them! I only made minor changes to the recipe. Instead of milk, I used coconut milk because of allergies. Plus I had to use more than required, but I think that is really minor. It is rare that a gluten free recipe turns out the first time! This is definitely a keeper! THANK YOU!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in pan to 375 degrees (oil should fill the bottom of the pan so doughnuts float).
  2. In a large bowl mix together dry ingredients.
  3. Mix in butter, milk and egg until smooth.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a doughnut cutter.
  5. Carefully put doughnuts in hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd pan. Fry for about 3 minutes until golden brown, turning only once.
  6. Place doughnuts on paper towels to cool.
  7. Dust donuts with powdered sugar or frost with icing and decorate…enjoy!
