Feisty Sugar and Cinnamon Doughnut Holes

Bettyskitchen's picture
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Butter 2 Tablespoon, melted and cooled to room temperature
  Egg 1 , well beaten
  Juice of lemon 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Peanut oil 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon

Mix together ½ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small shallow dish and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, mix 1 ¾ cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix 2 tablespoons melted butter with 1 well-beaten egg and 1/3 cup buttermilk (or substitute). Stir or whisk until smooth. Gently stir in dry ingredients to form a soft dough. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. (You may refrigerate the dough overnight.) When ready to fry doughnut holes, heat 1-inch of peanut oil in a heavy pot to 325 degrees (F). While the oil is heating, form your doughnut holes. This dough should make 48 average-sized doughnut holes. To insure that you get 48 equally-sized balls, divide the dough with a knife into 4 equal parts, and then cut each part into 12 equal pieces. Roll the pieces into round balls. Frying batches of doughnut holes at a time, drop formed doughnut holes into hot oil. Fry about 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden on one side, and then turn and fry the other side about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from oil and drain on a tray that has paper toweling. When drained, immediately place fried doughnut holes in the shallow dish containing sugar-cinnamon mixture. Turn several times to coat thoroughly. These doughnut holes are best served warm, but you may serve them at room temperature, also. They are a delightful treat on Mother's Day or any time of the year! Enjoy!!! --Betty
