It was good while it lasted, but I am over you. I have found a new love. Once word gets out, you will need to find a new career. I hear the feedlots are offering a dessert bar.
Sincerely, Me and the 20 lbs. you left...on my behind
This is a recipe that I found in my MaryJane's Farm magazine. I have made the regular version, using white flour, and the gluten-free version. I prefer the GF version. These are so light and fluffy, are as sweet as you want them to be, and best of all, they are baked, not fried! With a cup of coffee, (didn't see that coming, did you?), and a bowl of fruit, this makes for a perfect weekend breakfast.
Old-Fashioned Mini Applesauce Cake Donuts/Gluten-Free
*You will need a mini-donut pan for these.*
1 cup organic white rice flour
1/2 cup organic sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. sea salt
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 Tb. mild-flavored oil (I used safflower)
1/2 t. pure vanilla
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda and powder, and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together milk, buttermilk, applesauce, oil and vanilla.
Fold flour mixture into wet ingredients and stir just until moistened; fold in egg white.
Grease mini donut pan. Add 1 Tb. batter per mold, leaving the center peg showing above the batter.
Bake in 400F. oven for 10 minutes, until donut springs back when touched.
Makes approximately 36 mini-donuts.
