These donut holes took less than 10 minutes to make. No joke. They are incredibly dangerous because you may lose track of how many you eat. They are so fluffy and rise a lot so make sure not to use a lot of dough for each donut hole. I like to coat them with cinnamon sugar but you can prepare a powdered sugar and milk glaze if you’d like.
These remind me of churros. But much easier to make.
Serve these with coffee cause nothing beats coffee and donut holes. Enjoy!
