Puff Ball Do-Nuts

From Mrs Ervin Eilers, today we have Puff Ball Do-nuts. They sound a bit like donut holes to me. Yum!

I have not tested this recipe and rarely use hot oil for cooking. If you decide to try it, use caution with the oil or fat that you use. Maybe even use a donut fryer, that may be safer.

Puff Ball Do-nuts

Two eggs, well beaten, mixed with 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk, pinch of salt, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 1/2 cups flour and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Have the lard smoking and drop in by very small teaspoons. When too large teaspoons are put in they will not bake through.


2 eggs, well beaten

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

Pinch salt

2 t baking powder

2 1/2 c flour

1 t vanilla

Lard or oil for frying

Combine all ingredients. Heat fat. Drop by small teaspoons into the hot fat (possibly use a teaspoon measure rather than a spoon from your silverware). Test one and see if it comes out right. Adjust amount of dough and cooking time as needed.
