Glazed Baked Doughnuts

Glazed Baked Doughnuts

It was 5:00 p.m. and I realized that tomorrow was dad's and donuts at school. On top of that my son had been invited to a birthday party, the next day, where donuts were going to be the main desert. I thought about just shrugging my shoulders and saying "oh well." But, my overactive guilt complex kicked in last minute and I decided to try throwing the cursed desert together. I did not want to be up all night frying donuts so I looked up a couple easy baked donut recipes online and went for it. They turned out better than expected, and when they were done I was extremely grateful I did not have to make donuts and cupcakes, or donuts and some other random desert. Huzzah for the overlapping of desert and activities!!

1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
3 c. Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix
4 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. milk
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum

4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbs. hot water


Blend butter with sugar. Add the eggs and mix well.

Sift together flour,xanthan gum, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Add to the butter and sugar mixture. Blend in the milk and mix together thoroughly.
Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until doughnuts are golden.
While they are still warm, dip them into the glaze mixture on both sides. Let dry completely on a wire rack.
