What better way to kick off the weekend than to have some homemade donuts? Well, they are more like donut holes, but without the actual donut ever being made.. uhhhh. yeah.
So anyway, here is the recipe. There is a good chance you have everything you need to make these in a jiffy....
This is what you will need:
- 5 T butter, softened to room temperature
- 1/2 C sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup milk (milk - I used raw goat milk but soy milk, almond, or rice are fine also)
- 1 1/2 C Cup 4 Cup gluten free flour (or all-purpose flour)
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
annnnd for the final step you need:
- 1 C powdered sugar
First preheat oven to 400 degrees. Then mix the 1/2 C sugar and (very soft) 5 Tbsp butter (also I used a fork to mix this all the way through, so if you don't have a mixer, this is easy!).......
Then add your egg, vanilla, and milk....
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.....
...then add that to the butter, sugar, egg mixture and mix just until combined - don't overmix, or these won't be as fluffy...
Grease your muffin pan with butter with your fingers (or you could use a cooking spray - I always use butter), and fill each cup with mixture. This batch makes exactly 24 mini muffin donut holes....
Bake for 9-10 minutes or until they look like this:
then the final step:
just toss them into a bowl with your powdered sugar, and there ya go!
Eddie waited patiently for them to be done....
yum yum.... the PERFECT way to kick off another weekend.
See you all tomorrow, and hopefully I will have some killer deals to share from my yard sale adventures with Holly!
