Courtesy of Gluten Intolerance Group 12 Servings


2 eggs, beaten
2 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. butter, melted
5 c. gluten-free flour blend **
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. nutmeg

** Brown Rice Flour Blend
1 1/3 c. brown rice flour
7 Tbsp. potato starch
3 1/2 Tbsp. tapioca flour

** For 1 1/2 cup gluten-free flour blend:
1/2 c. rice flour
1/2 c. cornstarch
1/2 c. tapioca starch/flour
1 Tbsp. potato flour


1. Combine eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter in a large bowl. Mix well with a wire whisk or fork.

2. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to the wet. Mix by hand with a large spoon. (Do not use an electric mixer).

3. Let batter rest about 15 minutes. Turn dough onto a well-floured surface. If dough is sticky, work in more rice flour blend.

4. Roll dough 3/8" thick. Cut with doughnut cutter. (We used a large rimmed cup to cut the doughnuts and the lid to the oil bottle to cut the doughnut holes.)

5. Fry in 1 to 3 inches of very hot oil (375°F) until brown on one side. Turn donuts over and brown on second side.


Dip warm doughnuts into a bowl of very thin glaze made from 2 cups powdered sugar and 2/3 cup milk.


Melt Chocolate Frosting in a microwave safe bowl. Dip top half of unglazed doughnuts in frosting and let cool.
