Gluten Free Chocolate Doughnuts with Glaze

Chocolate Glazed Doughnut recipe from KC the G-Free Foodie

This recipe makes delicious Gluten Free Chocolate Doughnuts with a perfect Chocolate Glaze! These are baked gluten free doughnuts, so you’ll need a doughnut pan or mini doughnut pan. If you’re looking for fried doughnuts, check out this recipe  from my girl Mary Fran of FrannyCakes. This chocolate glaze can go on pretty much anything, from doughnuts to cookies to cake – I’d probably eat a 2×4 with this glaze on it, as long as the lumber was certified Gluten-Free.
