A cake-type donut recipe, using only healthy ingredients for a gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free yummy snack.

As most of you who know my family well are aware, Grant and the kids LOVE donuts.  Me, well, I can take or leave them.  But one day Grant and Abby came home after shopping with a baking tray for donuts, so obviously I needed to find a gluten-free baked donut recipe.  This one works well – it produced ‘cake’ donuts, which I actually prefer to any other type, but still not really the normal donut taste and texture that ‘normal’ people get to eat.  But, give them a go and let me know what you think!

I made up some sort of glaze for these, with cocoa powder, maple syrup and coconut cream, added some sprinkles and shredded coconut, and, well, when I brought them to a ladies night recently, everyone loved them!
