Doughnut holes can be made in a matter of minutes with this method. The recipe does not contain any yeast. Make the batter, deep-fry it, then roll it in sugar before eating it.
These bite-sized donuts were historically formed from ring donuts’ center dough, referred to as “doughnut hole” in England and Commonwealth countries.
Just like conventional doughnut holes, these are deep-fried. Then, they are coated in sugar, either fine or powdered, and baked.
Because they are smaller than conventional donuts and rounder in shape, these delicately fried dough balls are an absolute treat to the palette.
Dropping a little ball of dough into heated oil yields homemade donut holes. A little ice cream scoop or a spoon can be used to obtain the desired roundness.
I chose the former method since it results in gorgeous, round, and spherical-shaped sweet sweets that are perfect for munching on.
Donut holes can be made with or without yeast in two different ways. The following ingredients, none of which require the use of yeast, make this recipe the simplest yet:
- Whole Milk
- Baking Powder
- All-purpose flour
- 375F is the ideal frying temperature.
- Fry the doughnut holes for 1-2 minutes on both sides, only rotating them once during this time.
- Approximately 5-6 at a time, deep-fry the fish.
- Drain them on paper towels once they’ve been fried.
Powdered sugar, ordinary refined sugar, or a sugar glaze are acceptable toppings. Regular sugar is the way to go if you want something with a bit of texture and a lot of control over sweetness. The following are some other possibilities:
- Sweet Coconut Flakes
- Strawberry Jam
- Chocolate Sauce
From Taste of Home, this recipe has been altered. It’s unbreakable and straightforward. If you’re a fan of fried dough balls like beignets or malasadas, these are for you. Enjoy!
