No one can resist a fresh, warm, cinnamon sugar donut out of the oven. The wonderful smell of cinnamon baking into a perfect gluten-free treat wafting through the house is irresistible. Anytime I bake up a batch of donuts my family comes running. I’ve been playing with a new flour blend lately and it worked wonders on this Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Donut.
Have you heard of RYZE gluten-free flours? It’s a 100% whole grain rice flour blend. They have two different bags, a yellow and a blue. The difference (from what I’ve read on their website) between the two is the combination of how fine they grind the flour. So for one bag you might have a mix of finely ground rice flour mixed with rice that’s not as finely ground. Make sense? It’s all rice flour, just different grinds.
I used the yellow bag of RYZE for this recipe. The combinations of ingredients mixed with the RYZE flour yielded delicious results. My friend Brianna from Flippin Delicious came to visit and I knew I had to make her these donuts. She was the first recipe developer that had the chance to try these, so I knew she’d give be honest with me about the texture and flavors.
Yes. She swooned over them. I served her a couple on a plate alongside a fresh cup of freshly pressed coffee. It was the perfect welcome breakfast and I’m glad I got to bake for her.
When I first tried RYZE I was skeptical. Most 100% rice flour brands don’t hold up to baked goods on their own. It’s best to mix them with other flours or starches. I’ve now used RYZE to make several of my donut and quick bread recipes and each one has turned out nicely. I mean, just look at these donuts. Did you see the texture in the picture at the top of this post? Perfect.
These donuts have a really nice texture and they hold of for days. I made a double batch for my girls and then munched through them until the were gone. I’ve also frozen a batch so my girls can pull them out on Fridays and reheat them. They were still moist and delightful.
If you like donuts (and hopefully you do) you should check out my Gluten-Free Gingerbread Donuts, Gluten-Free Vanilla Birthday Cake Donuts, and my Gluten-Free Vegan Espresso Donuts. All are amazing and all are super simple.
