  • Stand Mixer or Hand Mixer
  • Donut Pan


  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 2 cups Bob's Red Mill brand Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour, in blue bag
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Pour 2 cups apple cider into a small saucepan and reduce down to 1/2 cup. This should take about 15 minutes or so.
  • Meanwhile, add 2 cups of gluten-free flour into your mixing bowl.
  • Then, mix into your flour the following: 1/2 tsp of baking soda, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp of salt.
  • In separate bowl, mix the following ingredients together: 1 large egg, 2 tbsp oil, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup warm apple cider.
  • Next, combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix everything thoroughly. Do not over mix or the dough could become tough.
  • Grease a donut pan and pour batter in about 1/2 way full. For best results, use a sandwich baggie or piping bag and cut tip of bag so it's easier to pipe dough into donut pan. This method keeps things cleaner.
  • Lastly, bake donuts in oven at 350 degrees F. for approximately 10 minutes. You'll know they're done when you press lightly on top of donut and it springs back nicely.
  • Once out of oven, allow donuts to cool down for a few minutes before trying to remove them out of the pan.
  • In a shallow dish, mix the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. To coat donuts, brush melted butter all over donut and roll around in sugar mixture. Tap off extra sugar. Enjoy!
