So perfect for a breakfast treat or a special dessert these little balls of joy are simple to throw together and taste delicious.
Herbie's Cinnamon, ground
sugar (for dusting)
Crunchy little nuggets perfect for dipping into maple syrup. There’s no finicky rolling or rising involved. Instead, simply stir up a batter and drop it by spoonfuls into a shallow bath of hot oil.
Four minutes later—golden brown, ultra-crisp doughnut holes, golden and tender inside, ready to sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or confectioners’ sugar, or dunk in maple syrup or honey.
Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a bowl. Combine the eggs and milk in a separate bowl, then combine together the two bowls to create batter.
Using a 1½-tablespoons ice cream scoop, ball and fry the batter in a 325˚F fryer and cook for 4 minutes on each side. No fryer? Then fill a pot one-quarter full with vegetable oil and place over medium heat to fry.
Once fried, place the doughnuts on paper towels to absorb excess oil and dust with cinnamon and sugar.
Try serving these doughnut holes as a dessert with vanilla ice cream drizzled with honey - yum!
To Make into Apple Butter Doughnuts
Place 2 cups apple butter into a squeeze bottle or baster. Insert and squeeze the apple butter into the center of each doughnut.
Comté, made with raw cow milk in the Franche-Comté region of France, is actually also known as "Gruyère de Comté." Considered one of the world's greatest cheeses Comte captures the essence of raw, mountain pasture-fed cow milk.
