Makes about 20 donut holes, double the batter if want more
1/2 cup + 1 1/2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk, melted
1 Tablespoon melted butter
Vegetable oil for frying about 1-2 inches in your pot
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
Have everything ready before you begin to cook the donut holes.
You will need a plate lined with paper towels to place the cooked donut holes on.
Have the confectioners' sugar measured out and on hand; in a sifter if you have one; as you will dust the donuts when they are warm.
In a bowl using an electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a small bowl stir together the egg, milk and melted butter with a fork.
Add the wet mixture to the dry, beating on low to medium until well combined.
Heat the oil in a pot.
The oil temperature needs to be 350 degrees to 375 degrees which can burn the donut holes if you are not working quickly.
Use a fry thermometer to know the temperature of the oil.
We used a small pot as you only work in batches of 3-4 donut holes at a time dropping them in using a teaspoonful.
Also you will not be wasting a lot of oil putting it into a large pot.
Have a pair of tongs ready to turn the donuts over.
This oil is very hot, so be careful not to have it splash up onto your hands.
When the oil reached temperature, use a teaspoon to spoon in 3 or 4 individual donut holes.
You want them to be very small so they cook quickly and right through, plus they do puff up when cooking.
If it seems like the temperature is too hot, and the donut holes start to darken to quickly, turn the heat down.
Cook the donut holes for about 1 minute on the first side, use your tongs to roll it over to cook the other side.
If the first side does not seem brown enough turn once more.
The entire cooking time is only about 2 minutes.
Use your tongs to remove the donut holes one at a time and place them on the paper towel lined plate to absorb the additional oil.
Move to a clean plate and sprinkle the confectioners' sugar on.
Continue the process until all the batter is used.
These are the very best eaten fresh and warm!
