Expert Tips

Keep the temperature of the oil at a steady 365°F; if it goes any higher, the donuts brown on the outside too quickly and the inside stays raw.

After a big holiday meal, you can't imagine eating something else, but still crave the reward of a sweet dessert. This is my answer to fitting just a little something more into your full belly: donut holes! Everyone loves a fresh homemade donut hole. This recipe calls for a touch of cardamom and an orange glaze that work right along with the holiday menu. Tell yourself you'll eat just one, but watch your hand reaching out for more.

Use a teaspoon ice cream scooper with a metal swiper inside for perfectly shaped round balls of dough.

Directions

  • 1 In a mixer, add the sugar, egg, milk and vanilla extract. Mix on medium for 5 minutes to fully dissolve sugar into mixture.
  • 2 Combine flour, salt, baking powder and cardamom in a medium bowl.
  • 3 Slowly add in flour mixture and mix on medium low speed till combined. Remove bowl from mixer and place donut dough in the fridge for 20 minutes to chill slightly.
  • 4 In a small saucepan over medium low heat with a thermometer attached to the side, add the vegetable oil. Allow oil to reach 365°F.
  • 5 Take 1 teaspoon of dough and drop it into the hot oil. Cook on each side for 3 to 4 minutes or until perfectly golden crisp on the outside. You can fry up to 3 donut holes at a time.
  • 6 Remove donut holes from the oil and place on a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Continue the process until all the dough is gone.
  • 7 In a small bowl, add the powdered sugar and orange juice. Whisk together until it is smooth and there are no sugar lumps.
  • 8 Then pour over donut holes and allow orange glaze to set for an hour.
