Just Like Dunkin' Donuts: Homemade Cinnamon-Sugar Donut Holes

By Kelsey Banfield |

Donut Holes

Last month I shared my story of my first ever homemade donuts. As you can guess, they were a huge success. Now I’ve moved on to make donut holes. Why? Because they are smaller and, therefore, I can justify eating more of them. No good logic, I know, but I am sticking to it! It was so easy to whip up these little balls of deliciousness in a just a short time in my kitchen. We all devoured them the minute they were cool enough to touch. Since I had liked the other donuts I made so much I just used that recipe again, but changed the amount of dough I friend. They were delicious, easy and fun for a Sunday morning breakfast.

Homemade Cinnamon-Sugar Donut Holes

One batch sour-cream donut batter


1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1. Roll out the prepared dough out on to a lightly floured surface until it is 1/2 inch thick. Then cut it into small rounds, about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

3. Fill a heavy bottomed skillet with vegetable oil and bring it to 350ºF. Drop in the dough and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the oil and roll is in the granulated sugar and cinnamon.
