Gluten Free Maple Bars

Gluten Free Maple Bars!

I was craving a maple bar, really the 
only type of donuts I like and which
I have not had in 6 years.
This recipe is interesting as it has no yeast
but the dough ends up frying up like a yeast donut
not a cake one.
It was suggested on the site to eat while warm
but I actually enjoyed them even more 
when they had sat an hour 
and even the next morning.
I have not had a donut in 6 years!! 
I may not be the best judge of 
the texture and taste but my son
who has only been GF for a month 
said they were excellent.
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
t tsp. xantham gum
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 2x2.
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
