As far as gluten-free baking has come in recent years, gluten-free donuts are still a rare treat. After searching far and wide, though, we’ve finally found a donut worth traveling for. When you want the best gluten-free donuts in Chicago — or in the U.S. for that matter — look no further than Do-Rite Donuts.
This Chicago shop has perfected the doughy treat, with a gluten-free donut that boasts a lightly fried exterior and a nicely cakey interior. Though Do-Rite isn’t a gluten-free facility, it takes all necessary precautions to keep gluten-free donut preparation and frying separate. Do-Rite gluten-free donuts are even displayed in their own case, tempting donut fans with their chocolate, maple, and cinnamon goodness.
On a typical day at Do-Rite, you’ll have your pick of three gluten-free flavors. The chocolate donut is topped with a generous coat of chocolate icing, the cinnamon sugar donut is dusted with a perfectly sweet and spicy blend, and the maple bacon donut is simply amazing thanks to a dip of rich maple glaze and a bite of salty-sweet bacon. There’s no need to feel left out of Do-Rite’s delicious weekly specials, either. Though they’re often gluten-full by default, the shop’s expert donut bakers can usually whip up a gluten-free version when given advance notice. Do-Rite gluten-free donuts are a special treat, but we definitely won’t hold it against you if you try one of each!
