I can’t remember the last time I had a doughnut, so when I had the chance to make Dough Buddies Gluten-Free Donut Holes, I was all in! I consider myself to be a decent baker, but I’ve never attempted doughnuts so I knew that this would be a fun challenge.

Dough Buddies Gluten-Free Donut Holes: Package

The back of the package for those interested in learning more about the product!

The Dough Buddies Gluten-Free Donut Mix tests less to than 10 ppm on the Elisa Gluten Assay test, meaning that the mix meets the FDA’s standard for a gluten-free item! The Dough Buddies Gluten-Free Donut Mix is manufactured in a gluten-free facility.

After reviewing the ingredients, I noticed that the recipe contains powdered cultured buttermilk (cultured skim milk) and therefore may not be the sweet treat for you if you have a milk allergy or experience a dairy intolerance. Also, the Dough Buddies Gluten-Free Donut Mix is made on equipment that also produces products containing soy and tree nuts.

Before adding powdered sugar

I’ve never fried anything in my life, so it took a few attempts to make a doughnut hole that was not crispy and burnt. But, when I did finally master the frying process, they turned out to be the most delicious doughnut holes I have ever had! The texture reminded me of a traditional gluten-containing doughnut you would buy from a bakery.

… and they taste just like funnel cake!

I highly recommend sprinkling powdered sugar over your freshly fried/baked doughnut holes. This addition made the doughnut holes taste exactly like funnel cake!

You can check out the doughnut recipe on the Dough Buddies website.
