My husband and I recently began supplying fresh baked goods to an adorable little coffee shop in our small town and we’ve been all about fall recipes and flavors lately. They’re serving several kinds of hot cider, pumpkin spice latte and other coffee drinks and we’re serving up fresh baked pumpkin muffins and these amazing Homemade Donut Holes. They’re baked and not fried and oh so delicious. Plus, these cinnamon sugar donut holes are easy to make and amazing with the cream cheese doughnut dip!
Easy Donut Hole Recipe For Cake Pop Maker
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup raw sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup raw sugar
- 3 tbsp butter
I use a cake pop maker for baking this cinnamon sugar donut holes recipe. The great thing about cake pop donut holes is they are baked and healthier for you. Plus cooking and cleaning are so much easier than when frying. If you don’ have a cake pop maker you can bake these in a donut hole baking pan in the oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.
How to Make Homemade Donut Holes:
Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl being careful not to over mix the batter.
If you’re using a cake pop maker preheat the machine. If baking in a pan in the oven preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Fill a piping bag or a bottle with the donut batter.
Carefully fill the wells of the cake pop maker or pan with donut hole batter, making sure not to overfill. They should be filled just below the well. The one on the right in this photo is TOO full and it oozed all over.
Cook in the cake pop maker for approximately 4-5 minutes or until a pick inserted comes out clean. If baking in the oven, increase bake time to 10 minutes or until the pick comes out clean.
Remove the donut holes from the oven or cake pop maker and set aside.
Mix the cinnamon and 1/2 cup of raw sugar together.
Melt the butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Quickly dip the donut holes in the melted butter.
Roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat and set aside.
Serve right away or store in an air tight container until ready to serve.
I like to serve these donut holes with a Cream Cheese Frosting Dipping Sauce. It’s easy to make and a great addition to the cinnamon sugar coating.
Cream Cheese Dipping Sauce Recipe
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 -2 cups powdered sugar (depending on how thick you want it)
Cream Cheese Doughnut Dip Instructions:
Mix all ingredients together using a hand mixer, stand mixer or food processor until the cream cheese doughnut dip is smooth.
