Chocolate Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze (and sprinkles!)
Yes, believe it or not these yummy treats are gluten free and oh so good.
I Bought the book Cooking for Isaiah a gluten and dairy free cook book.
When I saw the doughnuts I knew I had to try them and after I hunted down a doughnut pan the project was on. In Winnipeg there is a little Gluten free store called Lorenzo's, it is located on St. Mary's Avenue and they sell some premixed gluten free flour blends for baking.
The only thing I can say is my kids and husband were all fooled and had no idea that these were made with gluten free flours.
I encourage everyone to try something different, you just may very well be surprised at the results.
