With limited options on grocery store shelves for gluten-free products, Mrs. F. Katz set out on a mission to create her own allergy-friendly confections that don’t compromise on quality or flavour. Although Katz’s expansive range of gluten-free baked goods are irresistible on their own, its doughnuts in particular can be used in a host of divine culinary dishes. The next time you have a sweet tooth, unleash your creativity and try taking a stab at one of these 5 gluten-free doughnut based desserts.

Doughnut Cake Pops

  • Ingredients:
  • 24 Katz Gluten Free Glazed Donut Holes
  • 14 ounce bag melting wafers
  • 24 lollipop sticks (4 inch)
  • Sprinkles of your choice
  • Method:
  • Using a double boiler, melt chocolate or candy wafers. Be careful to use low heat and stir occasionally so you don’t burn it. Also do not let any moisture get into your melting wafers or it may seize up.
  • When it’s completely melted, dip the tip of your lollipop stick about a half-inch into the melted chocolate and press it into the top of the donut hole. Place the donut hole onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat with all 24 donut holes. Place them into the refrigerator for 10 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
  • Then take them out and dip each one all the way into the melted chocolate, letting the excess drip off.
  • While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle your sprinkles.
  • Repeat with all 24 donut holes and refrigerate.

Doughnut Tiramisu

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 16-ounce container mascarpone cheese
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups brewed espresso
  • 30 Katz Gluten Free Powdered Donut Holes, halved horizontally
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting
  • Method:
  • In a large bowl, combine the mascarpone, 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, the coffee liqueur and vanilla and beat with a mixer on medium speed until creamy, approximately 1 minute (do not overmix).
  • Combine the heavy cream and 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar in a separate bowl; beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture in thirds; set aside.
  • Next, mix together the espresso and the remaining 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar in a shallow bowl. One at a time, dip 15 doughnut hole halves in the espresso mixture and arrange in a single layer in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, breaking up the doughnut holes as necessary to cover the bottom of the dish.
  • Spread one-third of the mascarpone mixture over the doughnuts. Dip the remaining 15 doughnut hole halves in the espresso mixture and arrange on top. Spread the remaining mascarpone mixture on top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Once ready to serve, cut into pieces and dust with cocoa powder.
