These gluten-free cake doughnut holes are so delicious and easy to make – perfect breakfast treat recipe!
I love doughnuts. But then, who doesn’t? Gluten-Free yeast doughnuts are my favorites. That light, fluffy texture and yeasty smell just can’t be beat, but let’s face it, you don’t always want to wait around while your doughnuts rise, right?
I think that’s why cake doughnuts were invented. They’re slightly sweeter, and a little more dense, easy to make, and oh-so delicious!
We managed to lose our doughnut cutter, probably when we moved, but Garrett hasn’t let that stop him from asking for doughnuts. For the last week he’s been asking me “why don’t we make doughnut sticks?!” And so, we finally did.
You know what? Doughnut sticks are PERFECT for dunking. Just right. and they’re super easy. Just roll your dough out, and use a knife or pizza cutter to make 3/4-1 inch wide sticks. Voila!
And then of course, bite-sized doughnut holes are perfect for toddler snacking. yum! I didn’t have anything to cut out doughnut holes, so we just pinched off bits of dough, and rolled them into balls about the size of a large marble. At first, I thought they would be too small, but they rose a lot while they were frying and ended up being the perfect size.
Either way, this recipe is perfect for mixing up in the evening and refrigerating overnight to fry up for an easy breakfast in the morning.
