Cinnamon and sugar, when combined together to make doughnut holes, can do wonders and the fact that you can easily bake these doughnuts at home makes it even more interesting. If you are looking for a tea-time snack or you are craving for some sweet food, these doughnuts can serve the purpose well. All you need to have is the basic ingredients and some leisure time and you are good to go.
1½ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
½ cup milk
Cinnamon and sugar
The first thing you need to do is mix the flour, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Now take another bowl and mix sugar, butter, egg and milk. Now add the wet ingredients and dry ingredients together and thoroughly combine them. You will notice that the batter is sticky so you can use either a pastry bag or simple a spoon to extrude the dough for frying.
Now, take a medium-sized saucepan and add two inches of oil to it Heat it up and wait until it is hot. Extrude a ball of dough into the oil once the oil is heated. Now fry the donuts and do not remove them until they are golden brown.
Place them on a paper towel and check one or two donuts just to be sure. Oil often make donuts brown too early so you need to be really careful with the frying procedure so it is recommended that you taste couple of donuts before going ahead.
If you think that the donuts need more heat, you can adjust the heat accordingly.
Now, take a bowl and add half a cup of sugar and a very little amount of cinnamon. When the doughnuts are ready, you can now drop them to this bowl.
But make sure that the doughnuts are still hot when you drop them into the bowl. After dropping them, move the doughnuts around in the bowl and make sure that they are well-coated.
Once well-coated in sugar and cinnamon; take them out and serve.
