I wanted to share with you a wonderful GF Doughnut that I tried out and the kids and they LOVED it! I liked it as well. It is a basic fritter batter similar to that of a hush puppy recipe.
For the dough:
2 cups King Arthur Baking Mix
2 Tablespoons cane sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (preferably homemade)
1 egg, beaten
Sunflower or Canola Oil, to fry
Heat oil to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients until well blended. Using two teaspoons, get a small amount onto a spoon and using the other, gently push the mixture off into the fat. Don't overcrowd in the pan. As the doughnuts fry, be sure and turn them regularly for even browning. As they brown, remove them from the hot oil and place on paper towels to drain. After all of the doughnuts are fried, drizzle over the glaze.
For the Glaze:
1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar
1 orange, zested and squeezed of its juice
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 tablespoon of butter, melted
Mix sugar, zest of the orange, vanilla and melted butter. Slowly add in the orange juice, making sure to add only enough to make the icing thick enough to drizzle over doughnuts.
Serve, eat and enjoy!
