Coffee & Doughnuts (Gluten Free Naughtiness)

The American Cop shows would have you convinced that Coffee and Doughnuts are the high point in any drama! Well they were right in the fact that Coffee and Doughnuts go together as good as Starsky and Hutch, and packs the same kind of attitude as Marcus and Mike Lowry from Bad Boys.

Here we are making Gluten Free Doughnuts! 

250ml Water
65g Butter
125g Plain Flour (Gluten Free flour works better in this recipe)
3 Eggs

Gently bring to boil the water and butter. Add the flour, and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously. Remove the pan from the heat, and let it cool slightly. Mix in your eggs one by one until fully combined.

Gluten Free Choux Pastry People!
Take a pot approximately 15cm in diameter and pour in vegetable oil till roughly half way. Allow this oil to heat to 160 degrees C. Place the mixture into a piping bag with a star nozzle attachment. Pipe 2inch (5cm) lengths at a time into the pot and fry until golden brown. Use a Holy Spoon to remove the doughnuts from the oil safely. Place onto paper towel to drain any excess oil. 

These are Mini Doughnuts. Little bite Size Monsters, that you can have a few of or a few more depending on your mood of course. They are so lovely to eat when they are fresh. Nice and crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle!

Sugar & Cinnamon
Once they have been fried, Dunk them into a bowl of Sugar & Cinnamon. Toss them through and make sure they are nicely coated. Try not to eat them all at once... Don't say you were not warned!

So the Coffee Flavoured Custard will come next entry! Serve them together for an ultimate little treat to share with Friends!
