I’d assumed that it would be easy to keep gluten-free, dairy-free donuts in the house. Wrong. Not when they’re Katz donuts, as the friends I was staying with couldn’t resist them.
Pictured are the two kinds I’ve tried, sugar glazed and chocolate frosted. And they’re wonderful: perfectly sugary and sweet, the right amount of chocolate-ly goodness, and a great soft texture. While some gluten-free products can seem rather undersized, these are about the size of regular donuts.
Like most gluten-free products, these come frozen, six to a box. They’re actually quite good cold (I got impatient!) but you can also defrost them, and heat them up a bit. Also, I really liked the sugar ones with sunflower seed butter, and the chocolate ones with peanut butter.
While they have that donut taste down perfectly, and that soft donut texture, they are a bit different. A blogger that I read just commented on this: how gluten-free can be very tasty, but not exactly the same. However, they capture the zen of a good donut: sweet, but not too cloying for eating ‘em in the morning, and not at all crumbly (they’re good dunked in coffee!)
They also have powdered, custard and jelly, but I haven’t tried those yet.
