Recipe: A Sinful Treat: Gluten-free Fried Dough

I make this once in a blue moon.  Why?  Because it’s incredibly sinful and extremely addicting.  It can be made for breakfast, a snack, dessert (with dipping sauces) or even lunch.  It’s so incredibly easy to make and by far, one of my favorite gluten-free pastries to make.  So every Bastille Day, when people are eating their croissants and baguettes, you can finally join in the fun.


  • 32 oz. canola oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup  and 2 tbsp white rice flour
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Place oil in a large heavy pot and heat to 360 degrees
  2. Meanwhile, mix the water, butter and 2 tbsp. of sugar in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. As soon as the butter is melted, mix in the flours, stirring with a wooden spoon, until ingredients are incorporated together
  4. A crust will develop in the bottom of the pan.  When the mix is ready, it will become a ball of dough
  5. Place the dough in a bowl of a mixer, fitted with paddle attachment (or you can mix by hand)
  6. With the mixer running, add one egg and let it run until it’s incorporated through
  7. Add the next egg and repeat until all three eggs are mixed in – dough will seem slightly runny/soft – that’s ok
  8. Add the vanilla and stir
  9. With a spatula, scoop amounts of dough into the pot of oil.  Let it fry one one side for 2 minutes and the other for two minutes.  They do not need to be perfect shapes or sizes.
  10. Once golden brown on both sides, remove and place on a paper-toweled plate.  Sprinkle cinnamon on top (or mix cinnamon and sugar).  Repeat until all dough has been used.
  11. Serve warm.
