Delightfully Glazed Gluten Free Doughnut Holes

Delightfully Glazed Gluten Free Doughnut HolesAsk anyone at my house what is one food that we miss having for breakfast since my son as diagnosed with a wheat allergy. The answer would be a unanimous “DOUGHNUTS”. They sell gluten free doughnuts in the freezer section but they just aren’t the same as those piping hot fresh fried doughnuts that you can get from the bakery. I hit the kitchen with the task of recreating these little bits of heaven.

I swear the kids all gathered around me and starred like I was making magic on the stove. They waited very impatiently for them to fry. “Are they done now?” They didn’t even want to wait for me to glaze them, to me the glaze was one of the best parts. I made it with my favorite creamer, International Delight Coldstone Sweet Cream. These turned out even better than I imagined. My son was giddy like Christmas morning.

I even made some regular donut holes by frying some canned biscuit dough and then dipped them in the ID Sweet Cream Glaze that I made. OH MY WORD! My husbands exact words. We should always have a can of biscuit dough and ID creamer in the fridge just in case. I completely agree!

Then I broke out the creamer and the powdered sugar to whip up the glaze. You can use your favorite flavor, I chose this Cold Stone Sweet Cream because it is my favorite. Just whisk the powdered sugar and the creamer together.

I pulled the donuts out of the oil and let them cool for a second on some paper towels to absorb the extra oil.

    Yummy! I’m still working on the “toppings” as the glaze didn’t quite work for me, my husband didn’t like the granulated cinnamon sugar I tried and just powdered sugar was messy, but this is still a winning recipe!! Thanks for sharing it.
