I bought some potato because it sounded delicious. Now... what do I DO with potato flour. Hee hee. I've been searching the web for a good recipe and finally! Today! I came across a good one. YAY!
I also need to call out the flour is from a little mill in Chardon, Ohio called Fowlers Mill - fantastic place. You should visit.
Enought of that - now on to the recipe...
It's super duper easy - took me about 15 minutes to prepare the dough. This is a pretty basic recipe - as I'm writing this, I'm thinking it would be fantastic to add a little orange flavoring or maybe some cranberries. The muffins are a little sweet so a tart flavoring would be a nice balance.
- 1/2 cup potato flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 eggs, separated
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons ice water
- Add flour to a mixing bowl
- Add baking powder and salt and sift together 3 time
- Beat egg whites until stiff and frothy but not dry
- Add sugar in 2 portions and beat just to blend after each addition
- Beat egg yolks thoroughly and fold into whites
- Add flour mixture gradually by sprinkling a tablespoon at a time over the top, and folding lightly and carefully until the flour is incorporated
- When all the flour is added, sprinkle a few drops of water at a time over the top and continue folding in until all the water is used
- Place batter carefully by spoonfuls into heavily greased muffin pan
- Be sure to grease tins well as muffins stick easily
- Bake at 375° F. for 18 to 20 minutes
- Serve warm with butter
