Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

I loved doughnuts growing up – each Saturday growing up I went to Ballet class on Saturday then my mom would take me to a local donut shop where I would get the donut with the pink icing and rainbow sprinkles

I am not a huge sweets person but I love me a good doughnut – especially the type that are JUST cooked

Do you write donut or doughnut — I never know which one to use.

You do not need much to make this recipe — which is what I love most about it 🙂 – I know I said that these are sugared doughnuts but I always add a bit of cinnamon for an extra touch

This recipe makes about 32 donut holes for only about $2 dollars which is pretty rockin’

The most important thing about this recipe is to make sure that your oil is hot enough – it needs to be at 350 — make sure to use a temperature gauge because if you do not and the oil is too hot the outside will burn and the inside will be raw

I never tried baking donut holes – but I am sure it can be done – but I do not think they would keep their shape

If you do make the Sugared Doughnut Holes Recipe make sure to let me know what you thought 🙂

Love You Guys!
