Doughnut Holes Recipe

Servings: 24 doughnuts

Total Time: 1 hour

 -

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ tsp salt

½ cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ cup whole milk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 quarts peanut or vegetable oil

Confectioners sugar for dusting

 

Directions

1. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk granulated sugar, eggs, and nutmeg together until smooth, then whisk in milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture with a wooden spoon until evenly combined.

 

2. Add oil to Dutch oven until it measures about  ½ inches deep and heats over medium-high heat to 350ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with paper towels. Using a small ice cream scoop or 2 large spoons, carefully spoon 6 golf ball-size batter portions into the hot oil. Fry doughnuts until crisp and deeply browned on all sides, 3 to 6 minutes. Adjust the burner, if necessary, to maintain oil temperature between 325º and 350º.

 

3. Using a wire skimmer or slotted spoon, transfer doughnuts to the prepared sheet and let drain. Repeat with the remaining batter in 3 batches. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve warm.
