My Grandma Elly's Doughnut Holes

My Grandma Elly always brought a brown bag of these donut holes to our family picnics when I was growing up. Every time I make them I think of her! 


Oil for deep frying

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1/3 c. sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 c. milk

2 tbsp. oil

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 c. sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

In large saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in milk, oil, vanilla and egg with a fork JUST until dry ingredients are moistened. Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot oil, 5 to 6 at a time.

Fry doughnut drops 1-1 1/2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; roll warm doughnut drops in mixture. 24-30 doughnut balls
