Golden Puffs

When our kids were younger, the weekends became the time for hot breakfasts and special treats. One of the treats I used to make quite often were Golden Puffs. I wanted a breakfast type snack to take with us on the first leg of our vacation so turned to this tried and true family favourite.

These light, puffy, golden doughnut-like little treasures are sure to please. Fried to a crispy coating with soft insides then rolled in seasoned sugar, well it just doesn't get much better! They are quick and easy to make but just be sure to make extras as trust me on this one, there won't be any left behind!

Golden Puffs

2c unbleached flour
¼ c organic sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
¼ c vegetable oil
¾ c milk
1 egg

½ c organic sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Heat oil to 375ºF/190ºC in deep fryer. Mix dry ingredients together except for the last two ingredients. Mix wet ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients on speed 2 of KitchenAid stand mixer. Beat until smooth. Drop bater by teaspoonful* into hot fat. Fry four or five at a time about 3 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Drain.

Stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Roll the warm puff in this mixture.

Yield: 2 dozen

* too large and the puffs will not cook through
