Baked Doughnuts For Everyone: From Sweet to Savory to Everything in Between, 101 Delicious Recipes, All Gluten-Free
Those restricted to gluten-free diets are denied the pleasures of great doughnuts. Not so, says author Ashley McLaughlin in Baked Doughnuts for Everyone. She provides one hundred one baked gluten-free doughnut recipes most of which use a blend of gluten-free oat flour, sweet rice flour and almond meal. Two more gluten-free flours she introduces in some are ground flax meal and coconut flour. Remember that these are baked baking powder-leavened doughnuts not yeast doughnuts. Should you prefer yeast-raised doughnuts, these recipes will disappoint you. The variety of doughnuts McLaughlin gives the gluten-free community is enormous. Some are rather strange like curry doughnuts and chocolate-cayenne doughnuts, and she also has a chapter on savory doughnuts. Many recipes will satisfy those vegans who are on gluten-free diets. Some of the recipes are difficult to call doughnuts in which she simply thins a doughnut mix and cooks it as pancakes. The recipes are nicely laid out one per page, are very well written, easy to follow with suggested glaze, filling and frosting. These are perfect for the gluten-free folks. Nice full-page color illustrations complement the recipes. Each chapter heading has a helpful list of content. The index is complete and well cross referenced.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
