GF Maple Bars

Donuts
1 egg beaten
1 c. buttermilk
1/8 c. butter melted
 mix together
2 1/2 c.GF flour
(I used Mamas almond blend)
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp. xantham gum – skip if your blend already contains it
mix together
Add wet ingredients to dry mix gently
then knead a few times.
Let sit for 15 minutes.
Roll out on rice flour dusted surface,
to about 1/2 inch deep.
Cut into squares about 2×2.
Fry in very hot oil until brown on both sides.
Drain on paper towel.
Frost when mostly cool.
Maple Frosting
1/4 c. melted butter
1 tsp maple flavoring
1 T. milk
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
Beat until smooth
The doughnuts turn out a bit heavier than traditional doughnuts, but are still good.  I think they’re better about 15 minutes after cooking, edible the next morning, and no good after that.  I’d love to split this recipe in half, and I’ll work on that.  A whole batch might be great for a party or sharing with co-workers, but it’s too much for just me at my house.
