Mini Donuts Gluten, Nut and Dairy Free

Yep you did indeed read the title correctly. Now gluten free donuts ( until recently) have been a bit like unicorns – not real, mythical and things you can only dream about.

In fact there are 2 delicious producers that I recommend these are Borough 22 and wheat free bakery direct. Check them out if you can ( btw this is not an ad I just really like these).

Any way I’ve digressed, for Christmas I got a mini donut maker. I mean I got a fab new bag as well, not just this electrical item, but I was impressed with it. This got me thinking will gluten and dairy free work? Only one way to find out…..

By golly it did, want to know how I did it?? Have a read below.


  • 125 g gluten free plain flour
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 120ml of milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1tbs butter or dairy free butter melted.


  • Put dry ingredients into a bowl,
  • Make a well and pour in all your wet ingredients
  • Whisk until you have a smooth batter

  • Heat your donut maker
  • mine takes about 3-4 minutes to cook the little lovelies.
  • Either toss in cinnamon sugar, or ice however you fancy.

There you go, so easy, and so tasty. Even my husband ( who hates donuts) said they were good.

Until next time, have a great week.


Happy New Year

Well hello 2018. Whilst I’m not one for gushing posts I’d love to take the opportunity to wish all my friends, family, bloggers and followers a very Happy New Year.

I’m humbled to think my follower numbers and view are increasing, something I hope continues throughout the new year. We now have dairy free to contend with, so you and expect more recipes and reviews etc to incorporate this. As always if I can offer any advice regarding allergies and diet then feel free to send me a message. You are never alone, there’s always someone who will listen.

2017 proved challenging for us in some places. Health wise family members have suffered. Mini me started school- this is a milestone for all parents, but navigating food allergies in the mix as well requires lots of planning. We now flexi- school ( expect more posts on this) this means part home education and part school. I’ll add allergies were not the reason for this decision, and so far it’s proving to be the right choice. We are looking forward to our new challenges in 2018 and ready to face it full on.

All that’s left to say is I hope the hangovers recover soon, and bring it on 2018, we are ready for you.
