Gluten-Free Classic Baked Doughnuts made with baking mix Recipe

Imagine a big mug of hot coffee and a couple of delicious powdered-sugar donuts. Our friends who bake gluten free can indulge in this classic treat again; it's easy to make with our gluten-free baking mix. Which doughnuts do you like best — chocolate chip, cinnamon sugar, or coconut? With a few small changes, this recipe will make magnificent examples of any of those; see "tips," below.

Note: Please read and follow the recipe carefully; it calls for our gluten-free all-purpose baking mix, NOT our gluten-free multi-purpose flour.

12 doughnuts.


Choose your measure:


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, to taste
  • 2 2/3 cups King Arthur Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix*
  • 1 cup milk
  • *Make sure you use our gluten-free BAKING MIX — NOT our gluten-free flour.


  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease two standard doughnut pans.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter, vegetable oil, and sugars until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs, beating to combine.
  4. Stir in the nutmeg and vanilla.
  5. Stir the gluten-free baking mix into the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the baking mix and making sure everything is thoroughly combined.
  6. Transfer the batter to the prepared doughnut pans, filling the wells to about 1/4" below the rim. A teaspoon cookie scoop works well for this; as does a piping bag, or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner cut off.
  7. Bake the doughnuts for 10 minutes, until set. Remove them from the oven, and wait 5 to 7 minutes before turning them out of the pans onto a rack. Enjoy warm; or cool completely.
  8. Shake doughnuts in a plastic or paper bag with about 1/2 cup non-melting white sugar (for best results), or confectioners' sugar.
