Gluten-Free Spudnuts!!


This is big news at our house. Last night we attempted making gluten-free spud nuts and it worked! Even I, who can spot the taste of rice flour a mile away thought they were really good. So here is the recipe. If you should feel inclined to try them but don't need them gluten-free just substitute regular flour for the rice.
Ingredients:3 Eggs
3/4 C Sugar
3 Tbsp Shortening, softened
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 C Water, hot
1 1/2 C Instant mashed potato (or 1 1/4 C potato of your choice cooked and mashed up)
2 C Rice flour
4 Tsp Baking powder
1tsp Cinnamon
Prep:1. Chill dough for recommended time.2. Heat oil to 375 degrees.3. Set up paper towels on plates or cooling racks.4. Melt fondants and assemble toppings station.
Directions:1. Beat eggs well. Gradually add sugar until mixture is thick and light in colour.
2. Blend in Shortening and vanilla.
3. Sift the rest of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl; set aside.
4. Blend hot water with instant mashed potato mix and let stand 3 minutes, or boil and mash potatoes.
5. Blend egg mixture into the potato mixture. Add sifted dry ingredients, mix well to form dough ball.
6. Chill dough at least 2 hours.
7. Roll dough out to 1/3″ thick on lightly floured workspace.
8. Heat deep fryer or oil in a pot on the stove to at least 375 degrees.
9. Cut dough up into small chunks you can roll in your hands before dunking into the hot oil to fry.
10. Fry each doughnut roughly 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown - whichever comes before the doughnuts rise to the surface of the oil.
11. Scoop the doughnuts out using a metal slotted spoon
12. Lay each doughnut on paper towel lined plates or cooling racks.
13. While cool enough to touch but still warm enough to slightly melt toppings to the surface, sprinkle with either powdered sugar, sprinkles or melted fondant of your choice - or cool completely for plain old fashioned doughnuts.
Yields 1.5 to 2 dozen doughnuts.

We found we liked the doughnut holes as much or better than than the regular doughnut shaped ones. However they were much better last night than they were this morning. I just might try this dough for cinnamon rolls.

Can I tell you though that my kids decided they liked the kind we make out of pop-out biscuits better? These were definitely for the celiac in the group.
