Gluten Free Carrot Cake Donuts with Goat Cheese Glaze

I (Lauren) got the inspiration for these donuts about a year ago when I went on a girl’s trip to Providence, RI. One night we ordered dessert to split, it was a goat cheese cheesecake, and though I am not a huge cheesecake fan, I was intrigued by the goat cheese twist. One bite in, I was a believer and days after returning from the trip I found myself craving it.

It’s a good thing we don’t live in the northeast.  What have you been …

Gluten Free Maple Spiced Donuts with Pumpkin Butter Glaze Recipe

Maple Spiced Donuts I’ve always been a fan of donuts, but when I (Lauren) went gluten free the only ones I could find were frozen. Talk about a disappointment. So I set out to make my own and it’s since become sort of my favorite thing and a bit of a niche for me, I even have a hashtag, #lalasdonuts.  Now, I will be straight forward, I am not trying to compete with the warm from the fryer, melt in your mouth donut… though I have made some killer fried gluten free donuts in my day. Baking them is not only healthier, it’s also much simpler, so that’s …
