These gluten free donuts are a base recipe that you can use to build your own fabulous creations. Here, I have used a base mix with a vanilla flavouring, and then dipped the donuts in a light chocolate glaze to make them more interesting. You can use this recipe with all types of glazing and toppings. You will get a spongy texture that goes very well with coffee. As they are baked rather than fried, they won’t weigh you down.

To prepare them, start with adding all the dry ingredients to a bowl. Then, whisk in the flaxseed egg, add the rest of the wet ingredients, and mix until you obtain a smooth and soft texture. Spoon the batter into a piping bag, cut off the tip, and fill the pre-buttered donut molds. Then, place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. The batter will rise and form nicely shaped donuts.

When golden, take the donuts out of the oven and transfer them to a cooling rack. When cooled down, prepare the chocolate glaze (here, I have used the classic recipe with caster sugar rather than powdered sugar). You can increase the thickness of the glaze by adding more sugar. Finally, dip the donuts on one side and set aside to solidify.

Enjoy your donuts and experiment with different glazes!

Put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the donuts puff up and are golden. Take the donuts out of the oven, flip the molds and transfer the donuts to a cooling rack (do not leave them in the molds to cool down).

5 minutes

Prepare the glaze

While the donuts cool down, prepare the chocolate glaze by whisking together all the ingredients. If you wish a thicker glaze, add sugar (1 tablespoon at a time) and 1 teaspoon corn starch.
