YES. Today's sweet treat is this amazing and super delicious sour cream doughnut hole (or rather bite) creation. It is quite heavenly, I must admit..... I could call them doughnut bites, but I like a good doughnut hole, and even though these were not the leftover center of a real doughnut, I am still calling it a hole!
I have always loved the cakie goodness of an old fashioned sour cream doughnut, but never tried to make my own variation of a GF version. Oh. My. God. This really is one of the yummiest things I have made all year....
Here's what ya need to make 24 little heavenly 'holes':
~a mini muffin pan
~1/2 C sour cream
~1 tsp vanilla extract
~1/4 C vegatable oil
~1/4 C sugar (or 1/2 C sugar and omit the stevia below)
~1/4 C baking stevia (Stevia in the raw makes the one I used, it measures cup for cup like sugar)
~1 C Cup4Cup (or you can use just regular ol' all-purpose flour)
~1/2 tsp baking soda
~1/2 tsp salt
~2 C confectioners sugar
~6 Tbsp milk
~1tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. Set out some butter to soften for greasing the muffin pan (you will grease pan just before pouring batter).
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, egg, vanilla extract, and sugar and mix well for about 20 seconds:
then add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix together:
**grease your muffin pan now**
then, put a little spoonful in each mini muffin cup, and pop in the oven until the tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean. I totally forgot to time this part, but I would start checking around 10 minutes - oooops!
...while your doughnuts are baking, you can go ahead and mix up the icing by combining confectioners sugar, vanilla extract and milk:
...when your doughnuts are ready they will look like this and be springy to the touch:
I placed mine face down on a cooling rack with parchment paper underneath....
...to catch the icing that drips from them as you drizzle it over the warm little dough balls:
After they cooled with the icing on the bottoms of the doughnut 'holes', I then dipped the tops in the remaining icing and put them right-side-up on a plate:
...and then couldn't resist eating three while they were still a little warm:
I hope if you make these bad boys that you will enjoy them as much as I did!! And if you have any questions about the GF and stevia omissions, just to make regular full sugar and regular flour version, just comment below or shoot me a message! I tried to explain how to measure it out for GF as well as regular, but I may have not been clear enough. Let me know what you think of them!! Mine were truly divine!
Anyway, hope you all have a lovely Sunday! I just got back from a "walk and waffles" adventure with a couple of my gal pals. Good conversation, waffles, and a five mile walk. This is just what Sundays are for!
