Hey Doughnut! Hey!

Any time you see “rustic” in a food description you can assume that it means it isn’t polished.  In this case, the doughnut holes are not smooth, have a slightly irregular shape, and a crunchy outside.  And they are also delicious and easy to make.  Not too sweet, great for a brunch treat or a dessert, enjoy.

Rustic Doughnut Holes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scant cup buttermilk or coconut milk
  • flavorless oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup sugar and 1 Tbs for tossing

Mix together all the dry ingredients.  Beat together the egg and the coconut milk.  Mix the wet into the dry.  Heat a couple of inches of oil in a heavy pot over medium-medium high heat.  Using a teaspoon, drop the batter into the oil and cook, turning them over until they are lightly golden all over.  Remove from heat and mix with the sugar/cinnamon blend to lightly coat (the easiest way to do this is to shake them in a paper bag, which also has the benefit of removing some of the oil.
