Every once in a while, you want to treat yourself with something sweet. Nothing says fall without apple cider, pumpkins and baked goods. It’s something I look forward to every year and don’t think I will ever get tired of it.

Baking Tips & Variations

  • Do not stick your measuring cup into the gluten free flour. Instead, spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level off flour with a knife to avoid using too much flour.
  • If you want to avoid the icing from melting all over the donuts you can allow them to cool completely or even slightly.
  • Make sure to spray the donut pan with cooking spray before adding the dough mixture to prevent them from sticking.

How to Store Donuts

  • Store leftover donuts in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Serve warm by placing in the microwave for a few seconds.
  • You can make these ahead of time and freeze for up to 3 months. If freezing don’t add the icing until the day of serving. Make sure the donuts are completely thawed, add the icing and enjoy.
