Donuts… I LOVE them! Crispy, dense, oily goodness is the kind that I crave, and who knew donuts were so simple to make? I was inspired to make these beautiful little babies because of my love or my obsession with the donuts from CAFE BINK in Carefree Arizona. Their donuts are so good that I have almost a daily craving for them. Therefore to satisfy my craving I had to create my own…
2 cups Whole Wheat Four
1/2 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or Butter
1/2 cup Half and Half
Grape seed Oil
In a medium bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon then whisk together. To the flour mixture add in the oil or butter, half and half and beaten egg. Stir together till well combined. Form into a ball and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to fry.
Prepare to fry, roll out the dough into about a half inch thickness and cut out ‘holes’ with a round cutter, then set aside.
To fry, heat Grape Seed Oil in a deep pot until temperature reaches about 365 degrees F. Set the holes, only a few at a time into the oil and fry about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Take out the holes and drain on a wire rack or a paper towel.
Garnish with powdered sugar
