Paleo Doughnut Recipe
(gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, grain-free, nut-free)
Mila has been asking for doughnuts for going on 2 years now. She has seen them in the grocery store and, as with other ready-made food items, she picks them up, smells them (through the packaging), looks up at me and says “Mama can you make these for me please?” For 2 years have been saying that I would make her doughnuts and, finally, I have!
I so wish I could have been a fly on the wall at her school the other day when she received her present from Father Christmas (he came to THEIR school 🙂 – Mila was gobsmacked!). The parents were asked to buy and wrap a present for “Father Christmas” to give them. While her friends unwrapped glittery dresses and Barbie dolls (both of which Mila would have loved), she got a… doughnut machine 🙂 She was absolutely delighted! “Now I get to have my OWN doughnuts” she shrieked when I collected her from school!
Makes: 12 round doughnuts or 30 doughnut balls*
*I find the doughnut balls have a better texture than the round-shaped doughnuts.
