The next weekend I started experimenting with my new (and pricey) flour after Jules e-mailed me a recipe for soft pretzels. AMAZING! Try it here: Jules Gluten Free Soft Pretzel Recipe.
|My first soft pretzel in years|
|I made doughnuts and doughnut holes and glazed, rather than frosted them.|
I found a copy cat recipe for Krispy Kreme-style doughnuts. I cut the recipe in half (something you should always do with caution when baking) and still had enough for about two cookie sheets full of doughnuts. Check out the recipe here: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Copy Cat. Just sub the Jules Gluten Free flour for the flour! Believe it or not, I don't have doughnut cookie-cutters lying around, so I just used a wide glass and a large shot glass for the doughnut shape. Also, make sure your yeast is not old! I tried this at my parents' house and had no success with some yeast I found in the fridge. This recipe is time consuming, so give yourself a few hours for the whole process while letting the pastry rise a few times. I started at about 8:00pm and finished just before midnight with this project, so I'm sporting my PJs. These were delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about them!
