Quick and easy, soft and tasty. Decorate/top however you please. These donuts won't disappoint. You will want to make them over and over again. Great for a special occasion or just a cold winter night, like tonight here on Long Island.

Don't forget the hot chocolate. What's better than hot chocolate with a donut?
Beat together butter, oil, sugar and brown sugar. (see video)
Add eggs or applesauce - depending what you use - and beat that in until well combined. (see video)
Stir in baking soda, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Add either baking powder substitute or baking powder if you can use it. (see video)
Stir in the flour and milk with a spoon. The batter will be thick, that's ok. (see video)
Spray olive oil into your donut pans. Spread with a brush. Spoon the batter into the tins and smooth out with a spatula. (see video)
Place into a preheated 425 degree oven. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Allow to cool about 15 minutes. Place donuts onto a rack.
Top the donuts with anything you like. I did powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, chocolate frosting and glaze. The glaze was leftover from my Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread.(see video)
Do not refrigerate donuts. Store covered at room temperature. They will last about 3 days. They can also be frozen.
4 tablespoons butter at room temperature
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs if you can eat them - I substituted with 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder - I substitute by making my own with lemon juice from fresh lemons and baking soda since all commercial baking powder has corn starch
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon - I used 1 teaspoon, next time I'll do 1/2
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 2/3 cup gluten free flour - I used King Arthur's measure for measure
1 cup milk room temperature
