Two Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts
All you need to make these simple gluten free baked donuts is a gluten free cake mix, and a can of pumpkin puree.

You don`t need the extra ingredients the cake mix calls for. Just the mix and the pumpkin puree. You can add pumpkin pie spice to the batter if you like.
Glaze is optional.

How Do You Top Your Pancakes?
When my husband introduced me to putting peanut butter on pancakes over 20 years ago, I thought it was odd.

Now I can`t eat pancakes any other way.
However, I am a big fan of cooked fruit on pancakes, such as this homemade strawberry sauce.

Try it with my gluten free buckwheat pancake recipe.

Someone asked me this past week how I felt about comments made on social media that those with Celiac Disease can eat wheat based foods in other countries.

As a big fan of Sharon McMahon, my response is this
"Someone is either very misinformed, or they are not telling you the truth."
In either circumstance, they aren`t someone you should get your information from.

Sadly, there are lots of people on the internet who would be more than happy to lead you astray, for their own personal gain. Make sure to think logically about what internet sources you use to get your information.

I share tips and ideas on that in my blog post "Navigating the Gluten Free Internet."

Saturdays are Pancake Days
Traditionally, every Saturday morning, my husband makes pancakes. It`s a nice break for me, as I make most of the meals during the week.

I`ll admit, as I`m still in Detroit with my mom, I`m missing those pancakes today.

And with fall on our heels, I`m thinking of my Gluten Free Apple Spice Pancakes.
They`re made with applesauce, plus nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and a pinch of ginger. All the spices in a traditional apple pie, but in pancake form.

Then I top them with freshly cooked apples, and they`re amazing.

Try the recipe for yourself.

Guess Who`s Back, Back Again?
Word has it that the gluten free pumpkin products are making their way back into Trader Joe`s stores. I haven`t seen anyone mention the bagels yet. But keep an eye out at your local store.

Apple Cinnamon Mini Donut Muffins
"I made these today and changed nothing! They are excellent and going into my “Tried and True” folder. Thank you!"

These are baked in a mini muffin pan, so they turn out just like donut holes. Roll them in cinnamon and sugar, and you have a delectable bite sized donut.

If you want to amp up the apple flavor, place 1 cup fresh apple cider in a small pot. Boil until it reduces down to 1/2 cup, and then use it instead of milk. I`ve successfully tried this myself.

Recipe here.

P.S. It means so much to me when you leave comments on my website, especially if a recipe has worked well for you. Thank you, friends.

GF Crescent Dough Apple Dumplings
Years ago, while preparing a meal for a large group of people, I was introduced to what some may call "Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings."

It involves wrapping apple slices in crescent dough, then baked with soda pop .
And for years I wanted to recreate it, But alas, premade gluten free crescent dough is not a thing. (And at the time, premade GF puff pastry did not exist. And I have not tried it with puff pastry, either.)

So years later when I successfully created homemade gluten free crescent dough for a different recipe, I knew I had to finally try to recreate this recipe.

Friends, it is SO good. And while recipes call for using Mountain Dew, I`ve successfully made them with fresh apple cider and enjoyed it a lot more. I`ve also made them with gingerale, and achieved great results.

(I`ve never made them with diet soda, but I hear from other people that it works well.)

While they`re tasty on their own, a scoop of Hudsonville Vanilla Bean ice cream makes it even better. And if you have the Apple Jam from Trader Joe`s, add a dollop of that on top. Trust me. 😉

Recipe in link in @miglutenfreegal bio and stories.

Q: What apple recipes do you crave in the fall?

*Please note that I`ve only successfully made this recipe using Cup 4 Cup brand of multipurpose flour, which contains dairy. I`ve tried my crescent dough recipe with Bob`s Red Mill 1 to 1, and King Arthur`s Measure for Measure, and they haven`t turned out as well.

Today`s Feeling a Bit More Like Fall
We`re getting a break from the heat here in Michigan today.
Pair that with a minimal chance of rain this weekend, and it`s the perfect time to go to the cider mill.

In my article you will find over a dozen cider mills who sell gluten free donuts made in DEDICATED gluten free bakeries. They are organized by general geographic area, and manufacturer. You`ll also find an embedded map.

Can`t get to a cider mill with GF donuts? My post also includes nationwide gluten free brands that make donuts, as well as gluten free donut recipes.

Share with a fellow GF BFF. 🙂
