  • 1 ½ cups Gluten Free Flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoon (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used coconut)

Raspberry Glaze

  • 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoon raspberry juice (see recipe notes)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon almond flavor (or vanilla)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray your donut pans with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the first seven dry ingredients, flour through sugar
  • In another small bowl whisk together the melted and cooled butter, vanilla, eggs, and milk. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in. Mix gently.
  • Transfer mixture to a Ziploc bag and cut the corner tip off. This makes it easy to pipe into the donut pan.
  • Fill each well ¾ full without covering the middle section. If you do, your doughnuts won't have a hole.
  • Cook for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Allow to cool completely before glazing.

Raspberry Glaze

  • Add sugar, almond flavoring and raspberry juice to a stand mixer and blitz.  I like to add a little more milk at a time until I get the consistency I desire.
  • Pour the glaze over cooled donuts with a spoon.  Don't dip them bc they become over saturated.  


For the raspberry juice, I put 1 cup frozen raspberries in the fridge to thaw for a few hours.  I used the liquid from this as my raspberry juice. It has a beautiful red color and lots of flavor.  
These donuts are best eaten day of or next day.
