On Saturday night, we saw Slumdog Millionaire with Will and Christine. It may have been my favorite movie I've seen in about a year. I highly recommend it!
Last night, I made doughnut holes, per the request of Joel.
They turned out really well. And I'm trying to upload a photo of them, but my computer has some dumb viruses and nothing will upload. But here's the recipe:
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- OR 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). I just use a really heavy skillet and a frying thermometer.
- In a large bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, mace and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Create a well in the center of the mixture, and pour in milk, canola oil and egg. Thoroughly stir into the mixture.
- In batches, drop the mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls into the hot oil. Fry on all sides, 2 to 4 minutes, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
- In a resealable plastic bag, mix 1 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. While still warm, place balls a few at a time into the bag, and toss to coat. (I used powdered sugar instead for most of them.)
