  • 1-¾ cup flour or self-rising flour (omit baking powder and salt is using self-rising)
  • 1-½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Using cookie dough scoop, measure out by tablespoons into cake pop or donut hole maker. When indicator says glows “ready” remove to cool. No donut hole maker? Use a mini-muffin pan.

  1. We used to cut a hole with a bottle lid in canned biscuits to make donuts, fry them (and the holes the lids made), and roll them in different coatings much like this recipe. Looks yummy, Sandra!
