The coolest stuff happens when you click these buttons!

Now that school is out and I have more time to spend with the kids – some days are more trying than others with a 15- and a 4-year old – I like to find things that the kids can do and enjoy together. There are few activities that kids with such a large age gap can enjoy, but cooking and baking seems to be enjoyable for both of my kids.

These Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes are easy to make and are definitely delicious! Did I mention that eating is something they both love, as well?

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes. I love donut holes, especially during the fall.

In a mixing bowl combine 6 tablespoons of butter that has been cubed along with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Slowly work in 2 cups of flour, ¼ teaspoon of salt and 3 teaspoons of baking powder until mixed thoroughly.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll out until it’s ¼ inch thick. Cut out ½ – ¾ inch circles. You can use a cup or biscuit cutter. Knead scraps together and roll out to ¼ inch and continue cutting out circles until you are out of dough.

In a heavy bottomed pot heat 1 ½ inches of Oil to 350˚. Working in batches cook the dough for approximately 30 seconds, flip them over and cook an additional 15-20 seconds. Remove to a paper towel to drain excess oil. Roll in Cinnamon/Sugar mixture (1:4 cinnamon to sugar ratio) while still warm. Serve Immediately.

    • I think the frying gives them that quick crunch outside while keeping them soft inside. Baking them might be a better option, but would change the consistency and taste. Try baking them at 375 for about 10 minutes, then coat with the cinnamon sugar 🙂

  • Now can I just minus the cinnamon and just leave it as sugar? They have these at some Chinese buffets and they are soooo good and they look just like the ones you made, but no cinnamon just sugar.
