|I just love baking donut holes. I really love donuts even fried but not the calories they give me. So I have started using the mini muffin tins and my donuts recipes to make donut holes. This will satisfy any craving for donuts in a smaller treat!|
1/4 cup of lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 cups McIntosh, Rome or Gala apples, cut into chunks, peeled and cored (I chopped in the food processor)
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/3 cup of cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup of milk
Powdered Sugar or
1/3 cup of sugar + 1 teaspoon cinnamon mixed together, set aside.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugars salt and and spices in a bowl. Add the cold chopped butter. Use a pastry cutter with the butter and the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs or use a fork.
In a small bowl beat the egg. Mix in the milk and fold in the chopped apples. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture. Stir using a spatula or spoon making sure not to over mix. Place a spoonful of batter into each oil sprayed mini muffin pans.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the donuts are just golden. Remove from the oven, turn on to wax paper. Roll each donut in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. Best eaten while warm.
