EASIEST HOMEMADE DOUGHNUTS

EASIEST HOMEMADE DOUGHNUTS – The easiest way to satisfy your doughnut cravings, with no finicky yeast or rolling required. Just mix, fry, and eat!

Can we all just agree that doughnut cravings are real, and they’re not just for pregnant women? Because you all… I was hit with some MAJOR doughnut cravings last week. It doesn’t help that there is this amazing doughnut shop that I literally drive right past at least once a week… BUT, I’m trying not to gain a million pounds and spend money there every week. But those cravings, man, I couldn’t help myself!

So instead of stopping in the shop, yet again, I came up with a recipe for quite possibly my favorite type of doughnut of all time. Doughnut holes! So cute and pop-able, they’re the doughnut you can eat in one bite!

Traditionally yes. When doughnuts were rolled out and cut into that classic doughnut shape, the dough where the center hole was removed, and no doubt used in an effort to reduce food waste (and money!). But you can absolutely make JUST the doughnut holes.

Sadly, less than you’d think. 1 regular sized doughnut is equivalent to about 4 doughnut holes. So if you’re watching what you’re eating, keep that conversion in mind. Or be like me and just keep popping’ the doughnut holes and treat yo’ self!

Not necessarily! For that classic doughnut taste and texture, with the crispy outside and fluffy inside, you do have to fry them. But I’ve taken the dough for these chai vanilla doughnuts and baked little bits in mini muffin tins and gotten delicious baked doughnut holes that way. So it’s really up to you and what texture you’d like.

These doughnut holes would be classified under the “cake” variety. When it comes to doughnuts, and doughnut holes, there are two main types; cake doughnuts and yeast (or raised) doughnuts. Cake doughnuts are made using a sweetened dough that uses baking powder to rise. Yeast or raised doughnuts are made using a dough that uses yeast (I know you’re shocked, right?), and involves a rising time. A classic glazed doughnut from Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts would be a good example of a yeast doughnut. Personally, I LOVE the flavor of a great yeast doughnut, but they take time to make, and working with yeast can be finicky. For a fool-proof doughnut, go with the cake variety.
