Paleo Delicious Donuts

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog. In today’s article, we’re making some paleo delicious donuts.

Ingredients are:
1 cup almond flour
3 tbsp maple syrup
2 eggs
1/4 tsp baking soda
300F for 10-15 minutes

For Paleo chocolate:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup raw cacao

For Cinnamon Sugar:
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

How I cook it ?
1. So i’m starting off with almond flour (you could substitute this for oat flour or brown rice flour).
2. And then i’m adding in two eggs.
i haven’t tested this with flax eggs but if you use flax eggs, if it good works and it’s good, let me know down below. So i can tell everybody else.
3. I’m using three tablespoons of maple syrup.
I love maple syrup because it’s a natural sweetener. You can also use honey in this, but i really like the texture and the flavor of the maple.
4. Then i’m adding in a quarter teaspoon of baking soda.
This basically just helps them rise and get fluffy like donuts are. Of course i’m using my spatula.
5. So we’re mixing that up until it’s fully combined and it doesn’t take long at all.
The batter is thick though, so i will warn you on that. If it’s thick don’t worry because it’s supposed to be.
6. I’m spraying a doughnut pan.
They’re super cheap(doughnut pan). You can probably even find them at like a homesense or like home goods.
7. I’m putting in about a third of a cup into the donut pan until it basically fills it.
I like them to kind of overflow a little bit when they cooked. So that you get like big nice sized donut. So if you want to make more, you can double or triple the recipe.
8. I bake those at 300 Fahrenheit degrees for 10 minutes
9. Then i’m melting to some coconut oil and putting some coconut sugar and cinnamon on a plate.
I like coconut sugar because it’s a lower glycemic sugar and it’s an unrefined one. And then cinnamon also helps balance your blood sugar so the two kind of work in tandem low GI imbalances your blood sugar.
10. i’m sprinkling nuts.
We’re going brushing a little bit of coconut oil on the top of the doughnut just so that it gets a bit sticky, so that when we dip it in the coconut sugar and cinnamon mixture it kind of sticks a bit. So delicious it is. I only did the top i didn’t do the bottom with this and i thought that was like enough but you can do both sides if you like.
11. And then i’m just taking a little bit of coconut oil and making like a paleo chocolate glaze with some cacao powder.
Cacao is great because it hasn’t been processed and it’s raw. So it’s got all the antioxidants and benefits of cacao. And that’s what’s gonna make, chocolate glaze. So it’s super easy it’s just two simple ingredients and you stir that together.
12. And then i’m going to be dipping in the doughnut in it to the glaze.
Just swirling it around a bit until it gets fully coated and then you just take it.
13. Now you lay it on your sheet.
Now you need to wait for this one to dry a bit, because the chocolate is kind of melted. So you have to wait about ten minutes for the chocolate to kind of solidify on the top. Otherwise you will get chocolate all over your hands. But just continue doing that to as many as you want. You can do as i did, half and half. I did have chocolate glaze and then have cinnamon sugar. You can do all of them one way or in the other way. It doesn’t matter whichever one you like.
But they turned out so good and they are so easy to make. They freeze well and they make the perfect breakfast or snack. So once you’re done at your donuts it will be delicious. They can be stored in the fridge for a couple days or you can even freeze them and then to take them out whenever you want.. They’re so moist so delicious and you can mix up whatever you want on the top. I think the chocolate is definitely my favorite though.
Okay guys i hope you enjoyed this article. If you did it don’t forget to give it a comment down below. And i will see you guys in my next article. Bye guys

How To Make Apple Pie

Although apple pie is a simple dessert, it has stumped many experienced cooks in its time. The simplicity of this dish makes every ingredient stand out, which means the balance of flavors has to be just right. Fortunately for you, we have come across a tried-and-true recipe that can show you how to make apple pie like your grandmother used to. If she made great apple pies that is. The secret to its yummy goodness, it’s mostly apple, not crust. To get started with a deep dish of your own apple pie, just follow these directions:

Ingredients :
Few apple
2 cup flour
5 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground dry ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp spice
1/4 cup cold water
1/6 cup cold vegetable shortening
1 pinch of salt
1/3 cup cold butter

Process :
1. The important thing about apple pie is well apples. You want to mainly go with sweet tart varieties like mcintosh, Cameo, Cox Pippin,stamen Winesap or Fuji. If you cannot find these, munching apples like Honey Crisp or Red Delicious should also work great. The key is to use apple varieties that are firm,aromatic, and flavorful, and to avoid softer varieties. For example Gala or Golden Delicious apples you will need about 20 medium sized apples to make a deep dish pie 9 inches across

2. Aside from the apples you will need 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour, 5 tablespoons of cornstarch and 1 cup of granulated sugar. But what really gives this recipe its unique taste is the spices. A tablespoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, and a quarter teaspoon each of ground dry ginger, ground cloves and all spice.

3. Make the pie crust with one and a half cups of all-purpose flour. 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1/3 cup of cold butter, 1/4 cup of cold water, 1/6 cup of cold vegetable shortening, and a pinch of salt. Note that the oil-based ingredients have to be cold so that you end up with a flaky crust. Just mix the flour,sugar, butter, salt and shortening until the flour is moistened. Don’t mind the lumps. Sprinkle cold water on it a little at a time to achieve the consistency of dough. Roll it out to 1/8 inch thickness. Making sure that the edges extend a couple of inches beyond the 9-inch pie plate. Press it into the pie plate and fix up any tears. Finish off the ragged ends into a neat fluted edge.

4. Wash, peel, core, and slice the apples into wedges that are about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick. Make sure to get rid of stems, seeds, brown spots, bruises and mealy looking areas. Set aside.

5. In a small dry bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornstarch and spices. Mix them well.

6. Generously sprinkle the bottom of the pie crust with the spiced sugar mixture. Lay a tight layer of apple slices on top. Making sure to minimize any air space. Pack with more layers of spiced sugar and apples, until the top rises to about one and a half inches above the top of the pie plate. You need to pile them on because apples cook down a lot, and you don’t want to end up with an under filled pie. Finish off by generously sprinkling the rest of the spiced sugar on top.

7. Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes. Then at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 to 60 minutes. The pie is done when a blunt knife stuck in the middle of the Apple layer goes through without difficulty. Showing that the apple slices have gone soft. Take it out of the oven and let it cool on a rack. Apple pies are best served just a little warm with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top. Follow this recipe to the letter. We promise that when you taste the pie you won’t believe that learning how to make apple pie can be this simple
