I conducted a poll on Facebook the other day. I wanted to know which doughnut recipes folks wanted to see next on All Gluten-Free Desserts. The answers varied greatly—and I’ll be working on honoring these requests for a good while—but egg free, vegan, and baked recipes were some of the requests. These Banana Maple Donuts from Sarah Bakes Gluten-Free Treats will make all those requesters happy.
Sarena, The Non-Dairy Queen, says her Baked Apple Spiced Donuts “are light and caky with a nice hint of spice to celebrate the cooler weather.” She goes on to shares her love of cake donuts, specifically “Old Fashioned Doughnuts,” which she says always have a hint of nutmeg. Sarena offers this recipe as her dairy-free, gluten-free version of a spiced donut! Because Sarena only has one donut pan, she makes one batch of six donuts and one small loaf of bread with this recipe. That means that family members get to choose their personal favorite—Apple Spiced Donuts or Apple Spiced Bread—or the “bonus loaf” can be shared with a friend. Even if one has two donut pans, I love the idea of making both donuts and bread and “spreading the wealth,” so to speak!
