Mexican Hot Chocolate Baked Donuts (Gluten-Free)
If you can't take the heat, use chili powder instead of chipotle powder. You will still get some of the depth of flavor, but in a more kid-friendly version.
Serves: 6 baked donuts

Mexican Hot Chocolate Donuts
  1. Preheat your oven to 425ºF and lightly grease a 6-well donut pan.
  2. In a measuring cup, combine the dairy free milk and vinegar and let sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, spices, salt, and xanthan gum.
  4. Create a well in the dry ingredients and add the egg, oil, vanilla and dairy-free milk-vinegar mixture and whisk to combine those ingredients. Then stir everything together to make a batter.
  5. Scoop the batter into a sandwich bag, snip a corner off, and pipe the batter into the wells of your donut pan until they're each about ⅔ full.
  6. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
Chipotle Chocolate Glaze and Toppings
  1. In a microwave safe bowl whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and chipotle powder. Add the dairy free milk beverage and vanilla and whisk until smooth. It will be very thick!
  2. When you are ready to glaze the donuts heat the glaze in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds or until it is thinner and warm to the touch.
  3. Quickly dip each donut in the glaze and garnish with the mini marshmallows, cinnamon, and chipotle powder, as desired. Work fast as the glaze can set up pretty quickly.
Vegan Option: These donuts should work well with your favorite egg substitute for baking and vegan mini marshmallows or marshmallow bits for topping.
