3-Ingredient Donut Holes


½ cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup fresh milk

¾ teaspoon baking powder

Oil, for frying

For the topping:

½ cup white sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Place flour, milk, and baking powder in a bowl. Mix until no dry lumps remain. 
  2. Transfer the mixture into a piping bag or into a Ziplock bag with a hole cut in the corner. 
  3. Preheat enough oil in a deep pan for deep frying. Once hot, carefully pipe dough into the hot oil, using scissors to snip little balls of dough. Deep fry until golden brown. 
  4. Immediately coat the donut holes in your preferred flavor coating. We used a cinnamon-sugar mixture.
