Hello Friends!! So glad to be back today to share one of my favorite breakfast treats. Doughnut Bites! Who doesn’t love a bite full of fried heaven with a sprinkle of powdered sugar?!?! My name is Deanna and I’m one of Memories by the Mile’s food contributor’s from Gloriously Made. Please stop by and say hello.
Are you a doughnut fan? We are at our house! Matter of fact I often find myself driving the long way to do my daily errands just so I don’t have to drive by our favorite doughnut shop! Once it’s spotted it is often just to hard to not drive through the drive thru. Now that we have introduced doughnuts to our kids it makes it twice as hard to resist because they beg to stop.
But then there are those mornings that you just don’t want to get out of your pj’s and into the car to the doughnut shop. So you must stay home and fix something easy and delicious for the family. These bites are one of our go to weekend breakfast treats. They are so yummy to have with coffee and also easy for little hands to pick up and devour. I love that all of the simple ingredients it takes to make these I typically always have on hand. I often don’t have breakfast plans for the weekend and can whip up 2 dozen of these in no time flat.
- Vegetable oil
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- 2¼ tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- ½ cup of milk
- 3 Tbsps.. butter, melted
- Powdered sugar for garnish
- Using a frying pan, cast iron skillet, Dutch oven, or deep fryer heat about an inch of vegetable oil to 350 degrees. I use a thermometer to make sure my oil reaches the right temp. You don't want it to get to hot.
- While your oil is heating combine the dry ingredients into a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixed dry ingredients.
- Combine the wet ingredients and pour into the well of the dry ingredients.
- Mix until just combined.
- Drop about a tablespoon of your batter into your heated oil. You can cook 6-9 at a time in most pans.
- Cook your doughnut bites on each side for about 2 minutes or until cooked through and lightly brown.
- Garnish with powdered sugar.
- Serve warm!
As always, I would love to hear from you and have you stop by Gloriously Made and say hello! I hope you share the same love for these doughnut bites as we do and can make a batch this weekend!
More Glorious breakfast treats!
