An injectable: and this is no botox....I mean bull!

I absolutely abhor a gadget that does not do double duty so here is another use for the flavor injector, just soak in warm soapy water and clean thoroughly after each specific use of course.
Or just buy 2, they are like $2.00 a piece at Target Even the smallest pastry tip does not work quite as well as this flavor injector.
Inject some huckleberry syrup into these gluten free popovers or maple syrup, blended home made strawberry preserves etc.... into my 'ball-shaped' pancakes ( an older post) .
Mini gluten-free popovers:
1 c water
1 stick European unsalted butter
1/3 c potato starch ( Red Mill )
2/3 c rice flour ( Flying horse brand at Asian stores)
1/2 t kosher salt
4 Eggland's best eggs.
Preheat oven to 425. Grease a mini muffin pan. My yield, 20 popovers.
Bring water and butter to a rapid boil. remove from burner and add flours and salt all at once.Stir until mixture leaves the sides of the pot and forms a ball. Cool. Add eggs one at a time and beat after each addition. Fill mini muffin cavities with a heaped tablespoon of the batter and bake for ten minutes then lower temperature to 350 and bake for a further 20 mins.
I bought this huckleberry syrup in the Yellowstone National Park and as you can see just push needle into the little holes that form naturally when baking the popovers. These popovers were light and delightful and not overly sweet! They were so 'eggy' and just had the right amount of sweetness with the syrup.

Instead of a birthday cake Naz made me these wonderful turnovers...and boy were they good! I ate three this morning without realizing it! This is the first time in many years of eating gluten free that I have a treat so light and fluffy. Be careful Naz you will soon have gluten intolerant customers from all arounf knocking down your door!
