What dad doesn’t love doughnuts? For Father’s Day, Tyson (who’s a dad) and I decided to whip up some homemade doughnut holes.

You will need:

Doughnut holes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ stick butter, melted
  • Oil for frying


  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3½ tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

The ice cream scoop Tyson and I used may have been a little too big. In fact, our doughnut holes were so big, they didn’t cook all the way through (even though I obsessively watched the temperature of the oil)! So don’t make the same mistakes we did!

And feel free to get creative. Tyson wanted to put pieces of Hershey bar inside his doughnut holes, so why not try it?!
