Cakey GF Pumpkin DonutsPrint Recipe
- 1/8 cup water water
- 1/8 cup warm milk (can be nut milk)
- 1/2 tsp butter or coconut oil
- 1 tsp active yeast
- 1/2 cup pumkin puree
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 3 cups Simple Mills chestnut pancake flour
- 1 tsp turmeric
- dash salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
Preheat oven to 375F
Mix together the water, milk and sprinkle the yeast on top to activate.
In another bowl ( a stand mixer with dough hook or crazy strong biceps holding a wooden spoon) mix everything else together and add the yeast mixture after 5 minutes. By the time you get all that stuff in it will be 5 minutes so just go ahead and add it.
Let it sit on the counter top for a beat which you find the donut tray. Spray the tray with cooking oil.
Use a spoon to place the dough into the mold. Your going to have to get sticky here and use your fingers to mold it around.
Place it in the oven on a baking tray and cook for 12-15 min.
Let it cool on the counter top and if your going to frost it, wait until it has completely cooled down.
Optional Frosting: Whisk 1 tbsp maple syrup, dot of real butter or coconut oil and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until a smooth consistency is there. If its lumpy or stiff add some warm water, droplets at a time!
Yes donuts can be yummy and feed your soul and body guys. Using a pre make pancake flour from my fav, Simple Mills, I turned some leftover pumpkin puree from a pasta dish to dessert. This no sugar added ( icing optional) cakey yeast donut is one of my toddlers ( and husbands) favorites. It so easy to make, you can do it in one bowl using brute force to mix or take the chill way and use that expensive decoration you bought called a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I chose not to add a ton of sugar to mine because its just not something my body is craving these days as I am getting a ton of it from my new fruit kick ( and I also consider my toddler now in decisions) but feel free to make it more sweet. Use your judgement and dont let anyone judge. Happy Baking!
