Doughnut Holes 5 Ways
These are no ordinary homemade doughnut holes. They come in five fun shake-in-the-bag
flavors that your family will love. Plus, we’ve made them easy. Good stuff!
- 2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg, beaten
- Butterscotch: 2 boxes (4-serving size) butterscotch instant
pudding and pie filling mix
- Cookies and Cream: 5 crème-filled chocolate sandwich cookies,
crushed, mixed with 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- Mexican Chocolate: 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 3/4 teaspoons unsweetened
baking cocoa, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pistachio: 2 boxes (4-serving size) pistachio instant pudding
and pie filling mix, 1 tablespoon each red and green sugars, if desired
- Raspberry: 2 boxes (4-serving size) raspberry or strawberry
- In deep fryer or 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375 degrees
- Place one of the coatings (ideas below) into a brown paper lunch bag (about
10 3/4 x 5 inches) or medium bowl.
- Lightly spoon Bisquick mix into measuring cup; level off with straight edge
of knife. Add to medium bowl along with remaining Doughnut Hole ingredients;
mix just until dough forms. Work with half of the dough at a time; cover and
refrigerate remaining half of dough. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Sprinkle
fingers and hands with Bisquick mix if they get sticky.
- Carefully drop balls, 5 or 6 at a time, into hot oil. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes
or until golden brown all around; drain on paper towels.
- Immediately gently shake 2 or 3 doughnut holes at a time in bag, or roll
in coating in bowl.
- Repeat with refrigerated dough.

Expert Tips: If the cooking oil is too hot, the exterior of food gets overbrowned
too quickly and the interior is often raw or undercooked. And if the oil is too
cool, the food becomes saturated with oil and greasy before becoming fully cooked.
* If coating in bowl, gelatin will stain hands. Use a spoon or gloved hands.
