Powdered Donut Holes

After a particularly long day of meetings accompanied by stress, I had a lot I needed to do when I got home. But the only thing I wanted to do was make powdered donut holes, like the crazy processed ones I used to eat as a kid. Stress baking at its best. These donut holes are super fast and super easy when you just need some comfort after a bad day (or you want a simple, sugary breakfast treat).

I probably ate 4-5 before Dustin got home from work and another few for dessert. Talk about a sugar high!

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  4. Add in the egg, vanilla, and buttermilk.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and mace.

  10. Dip the each donut hole into the melted butter and roll in powdered sugar and set on a rack with wax paper underneath. Roll in an extra layer of powdered sugar if desired.
