Semi-Homemade Donut Holes

Avery loves donuts. Honestly, everyone in our house that eats solid foods loves donuts. And we're certain that Lenny P will love them just as much in a few months, too.

Sometimes something as simply as leaving the house to grab breakfast can be a huge undertaking. With two kids under two, it takes an act of congress to get out the door. So when we are tired of granola bars, waffles and pancakes — donuts are the next best thing!!

A friend of mine, Ashley, is having a ball themed birthday party for her youngest son. He and Avery are buddies and are in the same class at MDO. She mentioned having donut holes tomorrow for his party and I volunteered to make them for her. I used to help make them on Easter morning at church for the big community Easter breakfast. Only we just tossed them in powdered sugar instead of glazing them. Now, it's been awhile so I knew I'd have to practice so we made a batch this morning. Of course, before I started on them I conversed with Plain Chicken via text to make sure I had my thoughts in order. I'd never made them with a glaze so she gave me some pointers on how to make them perfectly.

What you'll need...


Heat your fryer to 350 degrees. Cut each of the eight biscuits into four equal parts. Roll them into balls and put them into the fryer individually. After about one minute, flip the balls over to let the other side cook and turn golden brown. Remove and let them drain on a paper towel.

In a bowl add powered sugar, a dash of vanilla and just enough milk to wet the mixture. The amount of powered sugar is completely up to you. Your desired consistency of the glaze will determine the amount of milk you'll use. After I added the milk, I added a lot more of the sugar to make it thicker. I quickly saw that I wanted the mixture to be thick so it coated the donut hole and didn't run.

And there you have it... semi-homemade donut holes! All together it took around fifteen minutes to make.
