Chocolate cake bites

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.

This recipe is for a small batch so if you plan on making a cake or brownies out of it then you will want to double it or use a very small pan.

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……….

Here is a whole plate of them.  They are 1/2 gone already!
