Baked Gluten Free and Dairy Free Doughnuts

     I would be wrong if I hadn’t said that these doughnuts are one of my simplest recipes. In just about half an hour you can have delicious gluten free and dairy free Fat Thursday treats.

Since the doughnuts are baked, they are much healthier and less fatty than their old fashioned fried version. What also makes them special and super tasty is aromatic coarsely ground cardamom added into the batter and cinnamon raw sugar coating.
