I love doughnuts more than I care to admit. I first discovered this when I visited Japan. I was introduced to the iconic Mr.Donut shop and fell in love. I don't think I lived before I had one of their doughnuts. They are made fresh, indescribably tasty, and have many unique flavours. I went to Mr.Donut many times and even got a Mr.Donut club membership card while I was there! I considered bringing a box of doughnuts home with me but my suitcase got too full.
Obviously, I was ecstatic when I won a doughnut pan giveaway from See Jac Run. I have been wishing for a doughnut pan for ages! Thanks Jackie!

I decided to bake some special gluten free doughnuts for my mom as a late Mother's Day treat. My mom used to make Slovak fried doughnuts when I was a kid but not since her gluten intolerance developed. Homemade doughnuts are absolutely delicious if you've never had them you should.

you can find in a coffe shop now is it?
These doughnuts are incredible. They have a great chewy texture like a yeast doughnut but a bit denser than a cake doughnut. I love them, you would never guess that they are both gluten free and vegan.

3/4 cup soy milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup mashed banana
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
2 tbsp rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp guar gum
Melted coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix together soy milk with apple cider viniger and set aside
In a large bowl, stir together sugar, banana, and coconut oil

Whisk until combined
Now add in the soy milk and stir
Spoon mixture into doughnut pan
Bake for 15-20 minutes until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean and the tops are slightly browned (*Note I had to bake mine for almost 30 minutes but I think it might have been because of my oven)
Pop doughnuts out of pan. Dip in melted coconut oil and then toss with cinnamon sugar.
If you don't have a doughnut pan you could use a muffin pan. I made mini muffins baked for about 10 minutes with some leftover batter and they turned out great.
