Apple Cider Doughnuts

I didn’t really start getting into the kitchen and baking until recently — some time after I found out my gluten and lactose intolerances. Gluten free [and dairy free] baking looks scary and intimidating. The recipes usually require a slew of ingredients that are costly and sound like they belong in a science project.

Ahem, Xanthan gum, I’m looking at you.

But since I’ve become comfortable with cooking, I decided to needed to branch out in the world of baking.

So I bring you one of my first endeavors – apple cider doughnuts – otherwise known as the doughnuts you get at the cider mill.
