INGREDIENTS

Preparation

  • 1 In a small bowl, combine rice flour, xanthan gum, salt, 2 tsp (10 mL) sugar, and ½ tsp (2 mL) cinnamon. Set aside.
  • 2 In a medium saucepan, combine water and butter and bring to a boil. Quickly add flour mixture and vigorously mix with a wooden spoon until mixture comes together and is combined. Set aside and allow to cool 5 minutes.
  • 3 Once cooled, add in eggs one at a time, and vanilla. Mix until dough is smooth. Be sure not to over mix. Transfer mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  • 4 Fill a large frying pan with oil and heat to 350˚F (180˚C). In a medium bowl combine remaining ¼ cup (60 mL) of sugar and ½ tsp (2 mL) cinnamon. Set aside.
  • 5 Working in batches, pipe out 4 inch (10 cm) logs into the hot oil and fry until golden brown (~2 minutes per side). Remove from oil and blot with paper towel. Immediately toss in cinnamon sugar mixture.
