Glazed Doughnut Holes

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! We started off our Easter morning with a beautiful mess of candy, toys, and fake grass! But in the midst of this Easter basket madness, I decided to make these delicious glazed doughnut holes! I originally had a different recipe in mind for today’s Something Sweet Sunday, but these were calling to me!

I was looking around at my kids laughing and playing with what the Easter bunny brought them and thought “mmm doughnuts sound really good!”

Then I noticed the grass. You know what I’m talking about! That stringy fake grass that sticks to everything!

It. Was. Everywhere. EVERYWHERE!

And I thought “ehh screw it. I want doughnuts!”

Sometimes you just need to ignore the mess and enjoy the fun!

So I checked my cupboards and found that I actually had all the ingredients for these glazed doughnut holes. And you probably do too!

These doughnuts are incredibly easy to make and take no time at all!

Make sure you have everything ready before you drop the dough into the oil because these cook pretty fast and you’ll need to turn them over.

I hope you enjoy these as much as my family did!

And next year, I think I’ll skip the fake grass!


For Glaze:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 7 Tbsp milk (just under half a cup)
  • 3 tsp Vanilla Extract

For Doughnuts:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 4 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Cinnamon
  • vegetable oil


Pour oil in medium sauce pan, I used a 3qt pan. Oil should be no less than 2-3 inches deep. Heat on medium heat.

In a large bowl, whisk flour, granulated sugar, salt, baking soda, and a few dashes of cinnamon. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk egg and milk. Stir into dry ingredients.

Stir in melted butter.

In a medium bowl, whisk powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Set aside.

Prepare a paper towel lined baking sheet and set aside.

Drop a tiny amount of dough into the oil. If it bubbles and floats to the top, your oil is ready.

Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons, drop about a tablespoon size amounts of dough into oil.

Fry until each side is golden.

Using a slotted spoon, scoop doughnut holes onto prepared baking sheet.

Allow doughnuts to cool slightly before coating them in the glaze.

Put glazed doughnuts on a cooling rack placed over another baking sheet.

Notes: I did not measure the cinnamon that I put in. Add what you prefer! These cook fast so watch them carefully. Even I overcooked a few!
