Ingredients

How to make it

  • To make the doughnuts:
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together the lukewarm milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients to make a thick batter (or soft dough). See Photo
  • For baking directions:
  • Follow manufacturers instructions for your Cake Pop & Donut Hole Bakery OR cake pop molds.
  • Frying directions:
  • Get out a skillet that's at least 2 1/2" deep; a 10" electric frying pan is a great choice, if you have one. Fill it with about 1" of vegetable oil, peanut oil preferred for best flavor.
  • Start heating the oil to 350°F while you make the doughnut batter.
  • When the oil has come up to temperature, use a tablespoon cookie scoop (or spoon) to drop balls of batter into the hot oil. This recipe will make 2" doughnut holes using a tablespoon cookie scoop and dropping in balls of dough about as big as an undersized ping pong ball.
  • Fry the doughnut holes for 2 minutes on the first side, or until they're a deep golden brown. Some of them may turn themselves over; that's OK, just use a pair of tongs to turn them back. After 2 minutes, turn the holes over, and fry for an additional 2 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer the doughnut holes to a baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain and cool.
  • When the doughnuts are cool, use a piping bag with a long, plain tip to fill them with as much jelly as you like See Photo. If you don't have a piping bag, try using an inexpensive plastic condiment squeeze bottle (think mustard or ketchup), with its tip cut off midway down to make it wider.
  • Shake the filled doughnuts gently in a bag of granulated sugar or in a bowl See Photo. Enjoy warm, or store at room temperature, loosely covered, for a day or so.
