If you’ve missed fried donuts.. these will fix all that! I experimented with almond flour in this recipe and it resulted in light lovely tasting donuts! Coat them in a simple vanilla glaze, chocolate glaze or cinnamon sugar. If you want a nut-free version and don’t want to use almond flour, sorghum will work great! And coconut oil is fantastic for frying in, especially if you are staying away from soy or canola oil.
This is the recipe that started it all. The ah-ha moment that great vegan & gluten free was possible. And eventually that I would open a bakery in Los Angeles to share it with everyone.
This cake is not too sweet. Very pumpkin spice-y and super comfort-food. It’s dessert or breakfast or sneak-a-thin-slice-when-no-ones-looking.
You can sub in coconut nectar for a low-glycemic sugar-free version with fabulous results. For the almond meal I prefer with skins to blanched. It provides more fiber and a better texture. Feel free to swap out the crumb topping pecans for walnuts too. I love it both ways. And while these instructions are for a large coffee cake shape, you can make small or large loaves with this as well. Adjust your baking time to higher or lower depending on the height of your batter in the pan you choose. Message us with any questions or comments – I’d love to hear from you
We usually use our Famous Karma Baker GF Flour to make donuts, but I was looking for something a little different. A nice hearty flavor that oats provide nicely. These turned out better than I hoped. We now have them everyday at the Karma Baker bakery.
Be sure to use Certified gluten free oats, if you are celiac. Also to make the buttermilk, it’s important to use a high protein milk. We use soy and get the best results. I’m afraid rice milk will not work well here. Nut milks are the next best choice.
This is the recipe we use at Karma Baker bakery. People ask us everyday how we do it and this is how. I’m always saying that the secret is in our flour and it is, so feel free to use your own GF flour, but know your results will vary. If it does not contain Xanthan gum, add 1/2 tsp.
