Donut balls

Donut balls

Easy, from-scratch, donut balls!  These homemade donuts can be mixed up and fried in minutes! Every time, I make these donuts, I am super mom. I literally make this donut balls, once a week. So cute and pop-able, they’re the donut you can eat in one bite!

Unlike the Puff Puff, this recipe of donut balls does not need a resting time. I use baking soda and no Yeats. The recipe of donut balls is very simple:  mix donut ball batter in clear mixing bowl with wooden spoon and fry in hot oil until golden. What I like most about this donut is that they turn themselves.

This donut ball can be glazed or served with the classic sugared, chocolate ganache dipped, and filled with an orange scented raspberry sauce.

  • 2 cup of All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Cooking oil

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and mix.

Add milk, eggs, vanilla extract, nutmeg and mix and stir until mixture forms a thick batter.

Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour (Optional)

Pour oil into heavy bottomed pan (dutch ovens or deep cast iron pans are fabulous for frying), until oil is about 2 inches deep. Heat over medium heat until oil comes up to 350 F degrees. Adjust heat level as needed to maintain the 350 degree temperature.

Once oil has reached 350 F degrees, use a cookie scoop to scoop up batter and drop them into the hot oil. Be careful when dropping the batter, do it from just above the oil so you minimize splashing!

Fry doughnuts in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oil to drain on paper plates.

Serve with milk, melted chocolate or vanilla sugar …
