Gluten Free Baked Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts

Today happens to be a pretty special day!

Today, we are having a party! A surprise-virtual party which I am so stinking excited to be a part of!

Today, Chris @ Shared Appetite rallied 21 of us bloggers together to throw a surprise virtual manly baby shower for a fellow food blogger, my dear friend, and mentor, and member of the dude-food-blogger “wolfpack” – David @ Spiced! David and his wife, Laura are expecting their first baby in November, and well – SURPRISE Mr. & Mrs. Spiced!!!


So, for this party I decided to show up baring these Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts.

These baked, gluten free, doughnuts were inspired by the powdered sugar doughnuts David posted earlier this year. I had given up making doughnuts till I stumbled on his recipe and – the cliche is true – the rest was history! Now doughnuts are a part of our monthly weekend ritual!

Baked Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts

One weekend, I made some cinnamon doughnuts which my daughter and I decided to have with a side of bacon when my daughter suggested I should just bake the cinnamon doughnuts with the bacon inside them.

This is what leads to these, slightly sweet, slightly savory, hugely tasty, Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts with a cinnamon drizzle and bacon crumbles!

Congrats David and Laura – all the cliches out there about babies are true – the joy that little Spiced is going to bring to y’alls home is indescribable! Wishing you both a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. I am so excited for you all and cannot wait to meet Baby Spiced!

And, Chris @ Shared Appetite – thanks so very much for rallying us together and hosting this fabulous virtual-baby shower for David!

Methinks this one is a re-post and am I glad you did as I missed it first round! Can you imagine a year has gone by already? Who could resist these? Not me and the cinnamon bacon combo sounds delicious!

I'm a long-time baker, but new to gluten-free baking. I know the general Bob's Red Mill GF Flour does not have xanthan gum in it, but their 1:1baking mix does. I'm assuming you are using the regular flour here, and no xanthan bum is required. Thanks! Can't wait to try these!!!!
