Raised Baked Cinnamon Doughnuts
 
4 Attachment(s)
Barbara Ray made me hungry for doughnuts with her sour cream doughnut thread but I avoid frying things in a deep fryer. I bought a fryer about a year ago and was excited at first but once the mess they create was evident, it now has its place upstairs in the spare room with all the other things I have bought and don't use any longer.

Anyway, I went for a raised baked cinnamon doughnuts.

[COLOR="Sienna"]I used the carbalose version of my cake and cookie flour mix.
1 cup LC cake or cookie flour mix (12 carbs)

1/2 cup carbalose
1/4 cup wheat protein isolate 5000
1 Tbs wheat protein isolate 8000
1/8 cup almond flour
1 Tbs resistant wheat starch 75
1 tsp not/Sugar
[/COLOR]



doughnut
3/4 cup cc milk
2-3 T. melted butter
1 large egg

2 1/2 cups flour mix
3 T. diabetisweet
1/8 t. splenda quick pack
pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast

In electric mixer, combine dry to wet until dough forms and is tacky but not sticky.
On a dusted surface, roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut out as many 2 1/2 inch doughnuts with cutter as you can and place on a grease cookie sheet.
Gather scraps and repeat until all dough is used.
Lightly spray doughnuts with cooking spray and let rise until double their size.

In a 375 degree preheated oven bake for 10-12 min or until golden brown rotating cookie sheet once for even browning.

I got 15 doughnuts and 2 doughnut holes at 2.5 carbs per doughnut.

I was going to frost them but I'm out of powdered erythritol and I didn't feel like grinding the granular.
Everybody here likes them as is. Not too sweet and nice and light.

1 tsp. powdered egg whites
3/8 tsp lemom juice

Hi Kevin,

I'm glad my recipe "inspired" you - those look great. However all I dirty is one bowl and one 10" frying pan!! Sorry - I also dirty a strainer - I pour the cooled down oil through a strainer into a container which I keep in my refrigerator and use again. I too don't like electric deep fryers - THEY are a pain to clean - but a simple frying pan works just as well and is EASY to clean. It took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish!!

Didn't your mother ever tell you that fried foods are not good for you? :laugh:

10" frying pan or deep fryer.....I don't like the grease but I'm glad it works for you.

Kevin, forgive me. . .you might have posted the answer, and I've not read it, but is your carbalose flour mixture your go to bread flour mix like your cake cookie mix. . .????

Hope you could follow all those adjectives. . .

I have read your posts saying your bread mix wasn't quite what you were wanting. . .so is this the "thing" we've been waiting for?

Thanks, donuts. . .they told me that working at Dunkin Donuts I'd get tired of em. Wrongo. . .never tired of em. (back in the day)

I'm thinking these (uniced) would freeze nicely. . .

Janie, the carbalose mix is exactly the same as the carbquik one with the 2 switched. It adds 3 carbs to a cup of it for a total of 12 carbs per cup. This is not the yeast mix I am working on but it works in this situation because because a super rise is not necessary. All that is needed for these doughnuts is flour that will double in size. The yeast mix I am working on will be closer to 20 carbs per cup. These do freeze well. I froze some then thawed 1 and had it earlier and it held up nicely.
