Gluten Free Apple Cider Donuts

One food that I have missed immensely since going on my gluten free diet was Apple Cider Donuts! We use to always go to the apple orchard each fall just so we could have some fresh cider donuts! Well...we decided to try a go with making some gluten free! We modified a recipe that I found here.

Gluten Free Apple Cider Pumpkin Donuts
2 cups of Pamela's Gluten Free Pancake Baking Mix
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 1/2 tsps baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps cinnamon
1 large egg, beaten
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider
1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
3 tbsps organic canola oil

* Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat pan with nonstick spray or oil. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

*In mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. In another bowl whisk together egg, brown sugar, pumpkin, maple syrup, cider, yogurt, and oil. Add dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Divide half of the batter among the cavities of the prepared pans. Don't fill them to the top or your donuts will lose their holes. (we did this but oh well!)

*Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the tops spring back when touched lightly. Turn pan upsided down onto a cooling rack to cool.

*Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.

*Enjoy with a cup of hot apple cider.
