Fun and festive Gluten-Free Vanilla Birthday Cake Donuts that are soft, fluffy, bursting with vanilla, and smothered in a sweet glaze. Enjoy them plain or top them with sprinkles for an extra colorful treat.
I’ve mentioned this in previous posts – my girls and I enjoy a donut every Friday. It helps us wind down for the week and rewards us for getting up and getting ready for the day on time.
It’s an extra special treat that we save for Friday morning’s. We like to make up a big batch of donuts and freeze them for the future weeks. When we run out of donuts, we bake up another batch.
These Gluten-Free Vanilla Birthday Cake donuts are incredible any time and aren’t just for celebrating birthdays. You can decorate them with frosting or enjoy them plain.
We rotate the types of donuts we make, adding in variety and giving me a chance to test out new donut recipes. My girls like to dip the donuts in glaze and add sprinkles.
I love it when they bake with me and they love being rewarded with a sweat treat for helping. The girls and I devoured these Gluten-Free Vanilla Birthday Cake Donuts straight from the oven.
The second batch made it to the glaze and sprinkle process and were frozen for the next week. The texture in these donuts is perfect. There is a little give with the pick the donut up. It’s tender, and melts perfectly in your mouth.
These gluten-free vanilla cake donuts are insanely simple to make. They bake up in less than ten minutes and are tender, flavorful, and they hit your donut-loving taste buds in all the right places.
You can have fun with the glaze by adding in color, or you can use different types of sprinkles. One year for Halloween we made the glaze purple and topped the donuts with orange sprinkles. They were fun to hand out to friends on Halloween.
