Sweet Bites



My son and I made these little bites when we had a sweet craving. I wanted to make doughnut holes but thought I would try something a bit different. The batter is almost like a thick cake batter so the outcome is soft and fluffy. Even after a few days they will not harden. You can roll them in powdered sugar, coconut or whatever your favorite flavors may be. I found using two small teaspoons was the best for acquiring the shape and retrieving them from the pan. The oil will make the batter not stick to the spoons.

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Oil for deep frying
bowl of white sugar and cinnamon mixed to roll in after you cook and drain grease.

1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a small bowl, combine the egg, milk and butter. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.

2. In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat add enough oil to fry. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls, five or six at a time, into oil. Fry until browned, about 1-2 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Roll warm balls in sugar/cinnamon mix.

Yields: 2 dozen

  6. Sweets (and spices) are the reward for the "designated drivers" of the world. We should get as many as we want... with no bad effects.
