Ode To New Traditions

We have started a fun tradition with SSP and BAP.  If they are well-behaved and pay attention during Mass they have the reward of yummy donuts.  Typically we go and buy them at the local donut shop.  However I thought since I have been eating gluten free (and I have yet to see gluten free ones at the shope) I thought it would fun making my own.  Boy were they good!

Baked Apple Cider Donuts
adapted from:

2 cups apple cider
1 t cinnamon
2 cups rice flour
1 t xanthan gum
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t apple pie spice
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1-2 T apple cider

Preheat oven to 400.  Grease 2 donut pans (12 rings total). Pour apple cider in a small saucepan with cinnamon.  Boil; reducing down to 1/3 cup apple flavored syrup.  Meanwhile in a bowl combine flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda and apple pie spice.  In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time; incorporating well after each one. Then add butter milk; mix well.  Add one third of the flour mixture, then 1/2 the apple syrup; repeat ending with syrup.  Place batter in a zip bag. Snip off a small corner and pipe into pans. Bake for 10minutes. While the donuts are baking mix up glaze. Remove from pans to wire racks.  Drizzle with glaze.
