Recipe Information

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 °F (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 EnerG Egg Replacer mixed with 4 Tbsp water.
Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
Egg Substitutions: There are many egg-free products and foods available to make your recipes free of eggs. Find out more about egg substitutions.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains.
