Donut Holes


Foto: Mari Eriksson 
I have to confess that I always thought that making donuts would be way beyond my horizon but oh was I wrong. When I stumbled over this recipe I thought that I would give it a go because it sounded so easy and belive me if I can make these so can you. They turned out beautiful and the kids loved them. The only problem now is that they want me to do donuts everyday!


Donut Holes- Fried, No Yeast

Ingredients

Vegetable oil or canola oil for frying 
2 cups all-purpose flour  
3 Tbsp sugar 
1 Tbsp baking powder  
1 tsp salt 
5 Tbsp butter cold  
3/4 cups milk

For rolling

1/3 cup granulated sugar 
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and mix.
  2. Using a pastry cutter cut butter into your flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add milk and mix until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Transfer dough onto a well-floured surface, and knead gently until it forms a cohesive ball. If dough is too sticky to manage, continue to work in flour until it is smooth and manageable.
  5. Break off approximately 1 1/2 Tbsp-sized pieces of dough and roll into smooth, tight balls. Set aside.
  6. Fill a medium-sized saucepan 2-inches deep with your oil over medium-high heat. Use a candy thermometer (make sure it isn't touching the bottom of the pot) to monitor your temperature.
  7. Heat oil to 177 C (you will have to monitor the heat pretty regularly and may need to increase/decrease your stove temperature to keep it consistent).
  8. While your oil is heating, prepare your cinnamon/sugar mix by stirring together cinnamon and sugar in a small dish. Set aside.
  9. Prepare two plates for your cooked donut holes by lining them generously with paper towels.
  10. Once oil has reached 177 C, very carefully fry your donut holes, about 4 at a time, carefully lower them into the oil with a slotted spoon to avoid the oil to splash.
  11. First fry only one donut hole and check how thoroughly it is cooked. After 3.5 minutes has passed, cut into it to check whether it is underdone, just right, or overdone, and then fry the rest of your donut holes accordingly. Fry donut holes for approximately 3.5 minutes, remove carefully with a slotted spoon, and place them on a paper towel laden plate. Allow them to sit for about 30 seconds and then use another spoon to transfer them to your cinnamon/sugar dish, roll them in the topping until fully covered, and then transfer to your other paper towel lined plate.
  12. Repeat until all donut holes are cooked and have been rolled in cinnamon sugar.
  13. These donuts are best enjoyed strait away they don't keep for long.
Good luck!!

All the best
