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.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups Gold Medal™ All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/16 teaspoon salt (just a pinch)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (no pulp)

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.

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