Ingredients
Vanilla Doughnuts
  • 2/3 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dry instant vanilla pudding mix (Kraft Jell-o brand is dairy-free)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla bean, scraped)
Vanilla Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup confectioners' (icing) sugar
Instructions
Vanilla Doughnuts:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease your doughnut pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the rice flour, tapioca starch, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients, and stir to combine.
  4. Spoon the batter into a large resealable bag. Cut a hole in one of the corners of the bag, and pipe the batter into the prepared doughnut pan.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the top of the doughnut bounces back when gently pressed on.
  6. Let the doughnuts sit in the pan for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire cooling rack.
Vanilla Glaze:
  1. While the doughnuts are baking, heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan over low heat until warm. Add the seeds scraped from one vanilla bean, and stir until the seeds are evenly distributed.
  2. Stir in the confectioners' sugar. Turn the element off, but keep the glaze warm. You may have to stir it frequently so that it doesn't crust over on top.
  3. Spoon the warm glaze over the warm doughnuts. Allow to sit for a few minutes for the glaze to set. Serve and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an air-tight container. Unglazed doughnuts can be frozen.
