OLD FASHIONED CHOCOLATE DONUT HOLES


Did you hear about the Toronto man who hijacked a bus to go to Tim Hortons? We do like our timbits! Tim Hortons was bought out a couple of years ago.  If that wasn’t bad enough the new owners tried to take timbits off the menu, underestimating our love for it. “Timbits are more than just deep-fried balls of water and flour to Canadians,” picketer Tom Delmont told the Oakville News at a rally outside that city’s Lakeshore Road Tim Hortons location. “If these Americans think they can just stomp in and take away our Timbits, they’re in for a Whopper of a surprise. Welcome to Canada. This is the way we do things here. Source  

A year later we are still buying timbits, but since one never knows how long we can, I made these donut holes and they actually taste better than Tim’s. Still, as long as they are selling the stuff I will be buying. But in case we can't... I already figured out how to make two of the staples; old fashioned chocolate and the honey glazed.

Old Fashioned Chocolate Donut Holes

1-1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tbsp buttermilk
2 Tbsp melted butter
oil for frying

Glaze
3/4 cup icing sugar
2 Tbsp buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and the salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, buttermilk, and melted butter.
  • Add to the flour mixture and stir to blend.
  • Chill for at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours.
  • Meanwhile in a medium bowl, whisk together the icing sugar, buttermilk and the vanilla extract to make a pourable glaze.
  • Line one tray with parchment paper and one with paper towels. Set aside.
  • Scrape the chilled dough onto a generously floured cutting board.
  • With floured hands, shape the dough into 1/2 inch thick ropes.
  • With a chef’s knife cut the dough rope into 1/2 inch segments.
  • Roll into balls and place them on the parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Meanwhile heat up 2 inches of oil in a smaller dutch pot on medium high heat.
  • Roll 4-5 donut holes into the hot oil. Turn them over in the same order they went into the pot.
  • As soon as the last donut hole is turned, start taking them out with a slotted spoon and transfer them to the paper towel lined tray to drain.
  • Fry the remaining donut holes.
  • Dip them into the prepared glaze.
  • Let the glaze set for ten minutes before sampling.
