Golden Sugar Puffs (Donut balls)
« on: December 12, 2010, 07:47:09 PM »
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine dry ingredients (except sugar).  Cream egg and sugar together. Add oil, milk & vanilla.  Stir in dry ingredients and mix well.

Drop by the teaspoon into hot oil. Take out when golden brown and drain on paper towels for a minute. Roll in sugar.

These turn over by themselves.  I used a "Fry Baby" and was able to do four at a time.  The dough is pretty sticky. I used a scant teaspoon and used another spoon to push the dough off into the oil.  You could also use one of those cookie scoops - but use a little one.  These really puff up.  The amount of dought for one-bite donut ball was probably about 3/4 teaspoon.

This was my grandfather's sister's recipe.

Would you be willing to move this to a different folder?  The Cookbook Project folder has been closed so the threads can be edited.

Thanks.
