Doughnut Holes

Baked nuggets are filled with strawberry jam and rolled in confectioners' sugar. A cellophane bag shows them off and keeps the sugar from getting all over. Tags are computer-made, cut out, hole-punched, and tied on with waxed twine.

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope (1/4 ounce) instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus 4 tablespoons melted
  • Vegetable oil, for bowl
  • 1 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • Confectioners' sugar, for rolling

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Whisk yeast, granulated sugar, salt, nutmeg, and 3 cups flour in a medium bowl; set aside. Mix buttermilk, eggs, and yolk on high speed in the bowl of a mixer fitted with the dough hook until combined. Mix in flour mixture on low speed until combined. Mix in softened butter, 1 tablespoon at a time (dough should form a ball).

  2. Step 2

    Gradually add remaining 3/4 cup flour, mixing until dough is tacky but not sticky. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let dough rise in a warm, draft-free spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour 20 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Fit a pastry bag with a #230 filler tip. Stir jam until smooth; transfer to bag. Twist a rubber band around open end of bag to prevent jam from leaking; set bag aside.

  4. Step 4

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough 3/4 inch thick on a lightly floured work surface. Cut out rounds using a 1-inch cutter; transfer to a baking sheet. Let rise 25 minutes. Generously brush with melted butter. Bake until pale golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool slightly.

  5. Step 5

    Insert tip of filled pastry bag into the side of each donut hole, and pipe jam to fill. The morning of the sale, roll in confectioners' sugar; package in cellophane bags.

    Major hit here, minus the jam on the inside. It seemed like that would have worked if my jam didn't have clumps or if I had the right tip. Am making them again today and will try putting cinnamon sugar on them instead of powdered.

    JUST FOUND THIS RECIPE, AND WILL GIVE IT A TRY ONLY I WILL NOT PUT JELLY INSIDE THEM. REMINDS ME OF "AFTER SWIM CLASS, WE WOULD STOP BY THE BAKERY AND GET A BAKERS DOZEN DOUGHNUT HOLES" THEY WERE GONE BY THE TIME WE REACHED OUR DESTINATION.

    Nobody liked these...I had to throw them all away.

    These are easy to make and I love the fact that they are baked, not fried. I add some cocoa to the recipe to make chocolate donut holes for my husband - he loves them!

    These cookies - rolled in confectioners sugar - are sold here in Norway under the name of "Berliner buns". They are a bit bigger - but just as good. Yours, Vibeke Aars
