Doughnut balls

You know how it is some days you just have a craving for something sweet.

I was doing my usual thing, first thing in the morning, looking through the various emails and facebook links to my many groups that I follow. The very thing popped up that just ticked all the voxes I was looking for…… So they just had to be made.

The recipe for Easy Homemade Doughnut Holes, was on the site for JustaTaste the thing about it was that it claims to give you the best doughnut holes but without the yeast….. quick doughnuts, well now that was something that needed to be tested.

I had some guests for breakfast, therefore, I could make them without having to eat them all by myself, which is a very real possibility.

I hear you say, ‘well just make half of the recipe’, unfortunately/fortunately that is not possible as there is only 1 egg in the recipe and of course you can’t really cut the egg in half.

Of course you need to test them and have another ‘just to test them’.

They really did just fit the bill of that craving for something sweet and tasty.

The recipe produced about 24 doughnut balls, (2 bites) I decided to do a mix of sugared and glazed, just to see what was best.

They were delicious and no yeast, so no waiting, just mix all the dry ingredients together, then the wet add the butter and voila… scoop out the batter into balls and drop them into the hot oil, wait until they are golden brown and delicious doughnut balls (holes), just what is needed.

(I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures while I was making this recipe, so I will just have to make it again so I can take the pictures…….. this is going to be such a hardship ….. haha, once I have done so, I will of course add the pictures to this post)

Instructions
Doughnut Balls
  1. Heat the vegetable oil to 220c.
  1. In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients, (flour, castor sugar, baking powder), mix them together to ensure they are combined.
  2. Measure the milk into a jug and add the egg, mix well together and then add to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix them well together, but do not over mix.
  3. Add the melted butter and mix again.
  4. Using a small ice cream scoop or 2 dessert spoons, take balls of the batter and carefully drop them into the hot batter.
  5. Allow the balls to cook on one side for 2-3 minutes until golden and then roll over and cook the other side until golden. (I found the the balls rolled over as they were cooked)
  6. When the balls are cooked remove them to a plate with kitchen paper to drain the balls.
  7. You can roll the balls in castor sugar, place some castor sugar into a bowl and roll the balls in the sugar or cover in a milk glaze (see below).
Glaze
  1. Add the icing sugar to a bowl, add the vanilla essence and then gradually add the milk until you have a pouring glaze.
Recipe Notes

If by chance you don't eat all of the doughnut balls at one sitting, they do keep well for 24 hours.
