Recipe Created By: Lisa (Will's Mom)

1/2  cup  sugar
2  Tbsp  shortening, melted
2    eggs or replacement
2/3  cup  potato starch
1 1/3  cup  rice flour
1/2  cup  tapioca starch
2  tsp  baking powder
2/3  tsp  xanthan gum
1/4  tsp  salt
1/4  tsp  nutmeg (or more to taste)
1/2  cup  apple cider
    canola oil for frying
  to taste  cinnamon and sugar, mixed in a bag and set aside

Prepare a paper bag with sugar and cinnamon so you can shake them up in it right after they come out of the oil.

Mix the dry ingredients. Add the melted shortening and eggs or Egg Replacer mixture. Stir in the apple cider until mixed.

Heat oil to 315 degrees (a little more than medium on the burner dial).

Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls into the hot oil.
Turn to brown evenly if they weren't covered by the oil. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.

While still hot pop them in the paper bag of cinnamon sugar and shake up to coat. Eat while hot!


The eggs can be replaced with 4 tsp Egg Replacer mixed with 4 Tbsp water. Note that EnerG Egg Replacer contains corn, so the recipe would no longer be corn-free.

Use dairy, soy, egg, corn, wheat and/or gluten free ingredients/options as needed.

 This recipe is free of:
 Milk  Peanut  Egg  Soy  Tree nut  Corn
 Gluten  Wheat  Fish  Shellfish  Sesame
