Not-So-Donut Holes  

Posted by: Amanda

Donuts aren't just for breakfast anymore! These are a little creation of mine that is full of soft, sugary donut goodness and pairs amazingly with a hot cup of coffee. These beauties taste just like donuts, but there's no frying involved! Make them today - you won't be disappointed!

Not-So-Donut Holes
(recipe adapted from Jamie at My Baking Addiction)

What You Need:
  1. 1/4 cup butter (softened but not melted)
  2. 1/4 cup canola oil
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 1.5 tsp baking powder
  7. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  8. 3/4 tsp nutmeg (you can use cinnamon instead if you want a little less spice)
  9. 3/4 tsp salt
  10. 2 tsp vanilla
  11. 2 and 2/3 cups flour
  12. 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  13. 2 cups (or a little less) of your favorite cream cheese icing (store-bought or homemade)
  14. Powdered sugar for rolling

To Make Them:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease the sides and bottom of a 13x9 pan.
  2. Combine ingredients 1-12 in a large bowl and beat until well-mixed.
  3. Pour batter into pan and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes (or until golden brown and set).
  4. After the batter has baked, remove it from the pan and crumble into a large mixing bowl. Let cool.
  5. Combine cake mixture with cream cheese icing and mix (with hands, preferably - it's just easier) until well-combined and smooth. Mixture will look like dough.
  6. Separate dough and roll into balls with hands (approx. 1 inch in diameter).
  7. Roll balls in powdered sugar until completely covered, and store in refrigerator.

Enjoy... and pace yourself!
