I wanted to make these for two reasons, one to use up my sourdough starter that failed at making bread and two to use my little brownie bite machine. it was a win win situation and I got a nice little treat out of it. I also tried to make sour dough donuts but that failed miserably so we will just continue on with my little mini chocolate cakes for now.
1/2 cup gluten-free sourdough starter ~ 1/2 cup almond milk ~ 1 cup tom Sawyer flour ~ 3/4 cup sugar ~1/2 cup safflower oil ~ 1 tsp vanilla ~ 3/4 tsp baking soda ~ 1/2 cup Hershey baking cocoa ~ 1 large egg.
Throw it all into a pan and mix and mix and mix until all incorporated. then drop by the tbsp into the little brownie bite machine. You only want to fill it 1/2 way full if even that as it rises quite well.
The end result is cute little individual size brownie bites that I can give for dessert. a nice treat. I don’t have to worry about the kids cutting a bigger piece than needed or uneven pieces that the kids will fight over and plus when I go to steal a treat I don’t feel so bad as they are perfectly proportioned.
Now about the failed donuts. the sourdough donuts I made into donut holes, oh my goodness they were like rocks when deep-fried and sour! so I made another batch more like a fritter but it flopped too. If anyone has a tried and true donut hole recipe I would love to know. I would like a raised typed donut although I do tend to kill yeast with just a look, I enjoy the light airy flavor of raised vs cake type donuts. There is just some things that GF can’t measure up to when cooking. Sigh………raised donuts……….
