Pineapple Upside Donuts with Coconut Icing




Hi everyone, I’m Michelle from Raising Amelia Rose. Christi has been a friend of mine long before our blogging days! She has been such a culinary inspiration, and has been key in helping me see that I don’t have to live without because of my celiac, rather I can make wholesome gluten free treats and meals. I am happy to be on a guest on her blog as she recuperates.

Today I am sharing my Pineapple Upside Donuts with Coconut Icing and coconut flakes!  I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.

Gluten-Free Pineapple Upside Donuts with Coconut Icing 
Ingredients: YIELDS 1 Dozen Donuts

•    2 c. All purpose Gluten free flour
•    3/4 c.  brown sugar
•    2 tsp baking powder
•    1 tsp salt
•    3/4 c. milk
•    2 eggs
•    2 tsp vanilla
•    2 tbsp butter, melted
•    12 pineapple rings

For the Icing:
•    1 c. confectioners' sugar
•    ½ can Pure coconut milk  (set in fridge to chill for a minimum of 30 minutes)
Top with ½ c. coconut flakes

Directions For Donuts:
•    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
•    Set pineapple rings inside donut wells
•    Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Add the milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter. Mix until well blended.
•    Pour the batter into a large zip lock bag. Snip off a corner of the bag and pipe the batter evenly into a 6 well donut pan (you will have enough batter for 1 dozen, so set bag aside with spout side up)
•    Bake for 11 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan 3 minutes, then transfer to wire rack.

Directions for Icing:
•         Mix coconut milk and confectioners sugar on med speed with hand mixer, or stand mixer for approx. 7 minutes
•         Drizzle icing over pineapple side of donuts and top with coconut flakes.

 These donuts are moist and messy, so grab a napkin and enjoy!
