Amazing Glazed Apple Cinnamon Mini Donuts (Gluten Free!)
1 1/2cupsCup4Cup gluten free flour
1/4cuphalf and half(or regular milk)
1cupconfectioner's sugar(for the glaze)
1tablespoon(or so) half and half (or regular milk) (for the glaze)
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar for about 2 minutes.
Add the egg and applesauce and beat for another minute.
In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk and half and half.
Add the buttermilk and flour mixtures to the mixing bowl, alternating one at a time. Don't overmix.
Spray your mini donut pan with nonstick spray. Using small spoons, gently spread the donut batter evenly in the bottom of each mini donut well. The batter must cover the bottom and be evenly spread out. Trust me.
Cook the mini donuts at 350 degrees for about 8 to 10 minutes. You will be able to tell by looking at them if they are done. If they look shiny and doughy, keep them in the oven for a couple more minutes.
Remove the donuts from the oven, let cool for a few minutes. Flip the donuts over, place on a wire rack and let cool completely before glazing.
For the glaze ... whisk together confectioner's sugar and milk... the less milk you use, the thicker your glaze.
Gently dip your donut into the glaze and let the excess glaze drip off while you hold the donut upside down. Turn the donut over, set back on the cooling rack, and let the glaze harden. I chose to dip my donuts twice to get a more glazed effect.
This recipe makes about 36 mini donuts ... it's worth the pain and suffering, I promise. Enjoy!
