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

    I’m so tempted to try this. What kind of oil did you use?

    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.
