Homemade Donut Holes
These homemade donut holes are so perfectly crisp on outside, yet have a soft, doughy center.
Made with baking powder instead of yeast for rising, these are known as cake donuts because of their denser texture
Cookie scoop – the perfect tool to drop the dough into the oil with… plus it’s great for cookies and meatballs!
Piping tip – I love using this tip in either a piping bag or regular ziplock for filling the donuts with raspberry sauce.
Cooling rack – This is great for placing the donut holes to cool after you’ve fried them. It lifts them off the counter so they don’t get soggy on the bottom.
Wire Spider – the BEST tool for removing fried foods from the hot oil.
HERE ARE SOME RECIPES TO MAKE:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg , optional
1 large egg
1 cup milk , I use whole
1/2 – 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup melted butter
oil for frying, (canola, peanut, or vegetable are good choices)
DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE DONUT HOLES
Line a large baking sheet with a few layers of paper towels. Set aside.
Pour oil into heavy bottomed pan until oil is about 2 inches deep.
Heat over medium heat until oil comes up to 350 F degrees.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla.
Pour the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients and stir together for a few seconds with a wooden spoon. Add melted butter and stir until mixture forms a thick batter
Once oil has reached 350 F degrees, use a cookie scoop to scoop up batter and drop them into the hot oil.
Add about 8 donut holes to the oil in one batch, and fry about 2 minutes per side. Remove fried donuts to prepared cooling rack/baking sheet.
FOR SUGARED DONUT HOLES:
Add about a cup of granulated sugar to a shallow bowl.
When you take the fried donut holes out of the oil, add them to the sugar bowl and toss to coat them in sugar.
Transfer to cooling rack to cool down.
