Are you or your kids obsessed with donut holes? We kind of are over here. They are so easy to eat, right?! Well these are also super easy to make y’all!
Y’all know I like to fry, and I totally understand that it really is an intimidating form of cooking, but try it out. Do it safely and you will find it is easier the more you practice with it.
Ingredients:
Oil for frying
1 cup milk
1 large egg
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:
Heat oil to 350
Melt butter in a small bowl and set aside
Mix all other ingredients (except oil)
When the oil is hot
Using a small scooper or tablespoon and scoop out some dough, gently slide it into the hot oil
You want to be fairly quick about adding more dough balls to the oil because they fry pretty quick, but don’t add so fast that your oil boils up too much, this could cause it to overflow and start a fire. Again, this is where the safety concerns come in.
Fry them until they are medium golden color and fluffy
Glaze:
2 cups confectioner sugar
4 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Directions:
Mix sugar and milk together, add vanilla
If you need more liquid, add more milk- just a little at a time! You don’t want it too runny

When the donuts are done frying, place them on a cooling rack
When they have cooled, roll them around in the glaze
Place them back on the cooling rack and allow the glaze to “dry”
You can do this process twice- you may need to double the glaze, normally I only do this once
