Deep-Fried Cake Donuts + Video


I love eating soft, warm donuts after coming in from skating. But after eating on the THM plan it seemed like an impossibility to create a low-carb and sugar-free donut.  Making them with fermented dough was easy, but I wanted something that wasn’t fattening. Like this:


Oh my goodness, these are perfection.


I can’t take credit for the recipe. My sister came up with them, to sell at Farmer’s Market, along with her wonderful Kombucha. By the way, I don’t go a day without drinking Kombucha. Just sayin’. There will be a post on that later!


These donuts are amazing any way you eat them. Dunked in coffee, along side Chai Masala Tea, covered in on-plan Powdered Sugar… but whatever you do – eat them warm. I made my own baking blend for this recipe, but I think Trim Healthy Mama’s baking blend would work fine as well.
