Way back in April of 2016, I attended the GFFAFest in Austin, TX. As some may know, I met Marilyn from Kember’s Gluten Free there. She had an awesome assortment of mixes and spices there. She was also sampling her Donut mix there. I seriously could have ran off with her samples and eat them like Homer Simpson does donuts.
They were tasty, actually I’m not sure that word does them justice. She gave me some of the mix to try out for myself along with telling me where to find the pans to bake the donuts.
I have been nervous about trying to make these honestly. I am not sure why, I am thinking it might be that the ones at the show where so very good, and I am not sure I could make anything that lived up to that standard.
The mix was super easy to mix up, didn’t require a lot of extra ingredients or odd measurements. I used my stand mixer with a flat beater. I had a little trouble filling the pans the first time. I wasn’t sure how full to fill the pans, since gluten free products don’t always rise like other ones.
After baking them, I let mine cool and then realized that I didn’t have everything to make the chocolate glaze! So I storage mine with parchment paper. I am not sure if that effected how moist mine where or not. Next batch I make I will make sure I have everything.
I made the chocolate glaze and it was awesome. I had trouble dipping the donuts in the glaze. The glaze is hot and I am not graceful. I think the next time I make them I will just pour the glaze over them instead of dipping. I had extra glaze left over from trying to dip them, so I am pretty sure I could just pour the glaze over the donuts. The glaze cooled quickly as well.
I bought some over to my mom’s house for all them to try since the brownies went over so well.
On the package there is an option for donut holes along with a vanilla glaze. I can’t wait to try those as well. I’m thinking it would be awesome on their pumpkin bread!
Kember’s also has other mixes and some seasonings that are awesome!
