The doughnut holes - as promised. Fried and rolled in cinnamon sugar.
You are welcome. 🙂
This is more of an idea than actual recipe although you can make the doughnuts the same way too.
Here is the deal. I like to play with food. Meaning, I like to divide any sweets I make and make them two different ways. Many times, I will get my ideas during the process of making the base or during analyzing the recipe. It's fun this way, wouldn't you say so? That's how I ended up spreading the chocolate glaze and sprinkles over our doughnuts. The truth is, I made them with an orange glaze too. 🙂 For a double citrus punch! They were not as pretty to photograph and my lighting was low, but here is the photo. If you are interested in a recipe or a rundown of steps for the glaze - let me know.
Aaaanyways, back to our little bites of doughnut deliciousness. I though that after baking the big boys ( you know, making them... ummm... what's the word... oh! healthier! 🙂 ), we deserve to indulge a little and fry the holes ( fill a saucepan with oil up to 2 inches and set on medium-heat; fry until golden brown; drain the access oil on paper towel). Then roll them in cinnamon sugar while still warm. Pop in your mouth and enjoy!
