Granny’s Donut Holes…

March 30, 2017

Granny’s Donut Holes…  

3 Tbsps. milk
3 Tbsps. boiling water
1 tsp. dry active yeast
1 ½ to 2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. plus 3 Tbsps. sugar

dash of salt

1 oz butter, room temperature
1 egg, slightly beaten
oil for frying

Glaze, see recipe below

In a bowl, mix together milk and boiling water. Add a teaspoon sugar and the yeast. Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place until yeast foams.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt; cut in butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until crumbly.

Add beaten egg and yeast mixture to flour mix, and mix into smooth dough for about 5 minutes or so.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes or until little bubbles should form under the surface. Place dough in a slightly greased bowl, cover with a cloth and let rise for about an hour until double in size.

Once risen, cut dough it into 4 pieces. One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide. Cut strips about an inch long, roll into balls and set aside on wax paper, cover and rise again.

Heat oil to 375 degrees F.   Fry a few doughnuts at a time until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes.  Drain on a paper towel.   Glaze while still warm and enjoy!

1/3 cup butter
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 tsps. Vanilla extract
4 Tbsps. hot water or as needed
Mix together and glaze warm donut holes….enjoy!
