Hi everyone! It's been a long time
I was having a movie party (Anne of Green Gables), and wanted something fun but not not too "bad" to eat...I've been thinking Doughnuts lately, so I did an internet search for paleo doughnut recipes.
The third blog I looked at was Shannah @ Just us Four. Her recipe (HERE) is a winner!
See notes the below...
~I did not have a "doughnut pan"...what I had was a "Whoopie Pie Pan". One recipe made 9.
~ The recipe did not call for Salt- I added 1/4t.
~I completely forgot to add the melted butter...it was trickier to mix, and I was prepared to butter them before I ate them, but that was not necessary- they were that good!
~ Oh, I did not pipe the batter, I just carefully scooped/scraped..
~ I only
baked the Doughnuts for about 10 minutes- maybe I could have pulled them a few minutes
let them get a little golden, so the edges are just a tad crisp (not
much), but the egg whites make them SO light- not dense!!!)
~ After cooling them (not as long as Shannah said), I tried to dip them in the chocolate, but it was NOT coating. (next time- cut the coconut oil) At all...so, I dumped a little chocolate into each cavity, and set the doughnuts on top, and popped them back in the fridge- took a while to harden.
~ If they are not hard/cold enough they will not pop out- they will brake.
~STORE IN THE FRIDGE!!!!! =) DO NOT LEAVE THEM OUT!!! =)
