Gluten Free Baked Doughnuts : Never Giving Up


Gluten Free Baked Doughnuts

 I woke up on Sunday morning around 5:30 am after feeding Armaan and thought of trying to make doughnuts yet again.The weather was perfect and the kids had a long day playing a chess tournament. I felt I needed to make it special.

Just before Mannat got diagnosed with a gluten allergy he had tired doughnuts at the mall and had loved them. I can still hear his innocent voice asking me “Mummy, will I never be able to eat a doughnuts again?” and I was choking and saying don’t worry mummy will make them for you. My lovely student Zoya who too has a gluten allergy once sent me a lovely recipe for doughnuts which I made but these were fried doughnuts and somehow I wasn’t happy with them.

I must have made them a zillion times almost always failed to get them perfect. Most were dense like all gluten products. It like my bread which now I can proudly say is better than bread with gluten… wish I could go for a competition and prove it. Enjoying it, while I update the blog.
