Homemade Donut Holes - Two Ways

When I saw this recipe on Bless This Mess, I just had to make them. Oh my goodness these are the most delicious little treats.  I am so glad I made them.  Gray and I had to stop ourselves from eating way too many!  These are such a fun breakfast!!!

For Donuts:
2 cups  flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup whole milk
2 tbsp butter (melted and cooled)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 quarts vegetable oil

For Cinnamon and Sugar:
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

For Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp - 5 tbsp milk (depending on desired consistency)

In a medium size mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt, set to the side.  In a small bowl whisk together sugar, eggs and nutmeg.  Add in the milk, butter and vanilla extract and whisk to combine. Slowly add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir carefully to combine.  Heat oil in a deep skillet to 350 degrees. Using two spoons carefully drop small balls of the batter into the hot oil.  Cook 4 to 5 at the same time, turn the donuts to make sure they cook on all sides.  Fry for 4 to 7 minutes. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool slightly.  After cooling slightly either coat with cinnamon and sugar or dip in the glaze.  Repeat until all the batter is fried and dipped.  Serve warm.
