Speckled Egg Easter Doughnuts

This Easter, why not make Speckled Egg Easter Doughnuts that are gluten-free, topped with chocolate glaze and crushed speckled eggs. 

What’s the secret to Gluten-Free Doughnuts?

Traditionally, doughnuts are deep-fried and they absorb a lot of cooking oil in the cooking process. In addition, many bakeries cook their doughnuts in shortening, a fat often loaded with trans-fats.

The solution – delicious baked doughnuts that are cooked in the oven with just a little bit of coconut oil.  It is super easy to make baked doughnuts at home and a lot healthier than the deep-fried versions. I purchased a doughnut pan at Home Stuff Hillfox, but you can also look for one online if easier.

The biggest hack of all, I have run out of Gluten-free flour (lockdown problems) so I used this mix from Woolies instead.

If you would prefer, you could also make the batter from scratch, using this recipe I posted a while back.

I love speckled eggs, the hard colourful pastel coating, chocolate layer and the squishy jelly inside, and once I start eating these treats I cannot stop. They are just so beautiful in food as well, giving your easter treats and bake a very whimsical look.

For this recipe, I roughly chopped the speckled eggs and then sprinkled them over the doughnuts.
