Coffee Cake Donuts

I love finding and eating a great donut. Eating paleo has stopped me from getting my hands on a fluffy, fried donut, but tonight I tried a different approach: baked cake donuts. Inspired by coffee cake, these donuts (while not 100% paleo because of the sour cream), are sweet and moist and filled that donut craving I had. Continued…

This weekend I decided to try something a little different. I’m not a huge fan of carrot cake, but my husband loves it, so I used his The Wild Diet cookbook and modified the carrot cake recipe.

As a child from the south – well “south-ish” (I’m from Miami); anyway, I love biscuits. I remember when I was a kid catching whiffs of buttermilk biscuits cooking away in the oven and that smell making me feel so happy. After I stopped eating gluten, I found making dough (of any kind) extremely difficult. The flour substitutes I used either made the dough too dry and the dough would break apart, or the dough would be too wet and become more like a batter. Below is a success story where the biscuits formed a golden crust on the outside and crumbled just right when I cut them apart. Continued…
