I enjoy experimenting with flavor variations too! Try adding a splash of vanilla extract, a pinch of cinnamon, or even a bit of nutmeg to the dough. You can also roll the freshly fried doughnut holes in cinnamon sugar or dip them in a chocolate or caramel sauce for an extra indulgent treat.

  • 4 Large eggs

  • 1 Cup (306 grams or 3/4 of a standard can) sweetened condensed milk

  • A pinch of salt

  • 1/2 tsp (2 grams) baking soda

  • 4 cups (500 grams) all-purpose flour

  • Oil for deep frying

  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling (optional)


  • Prepare the Eggs: Crack 4 eggs into a large mixing bowl. Whisk them vigorously until well combined and slightly frothy.Prepare the Eggs
  • Mix in Condensed Milk: Add 1 cup (305 grams) of sweetened condensed milk to the egg mixture. Mix thoroughly until everything is well combined.Mix in Condensed Milk
  • Add Salt and Baking Soda: Add a pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to the mixture. Mix again to ensure even distribution.Add Salt and Baking Soda
  • Sift and Add Flour: Sift 4 cups (500 grams) of all-purpose flour into the mixture in two parts. First, sift and fold in about half of the flour, then sift and fold in the remaining flour. This helps make the doughnut balls lighter and fluffier.Sift and Add Flour
  • Form the Dough: Use your hands to mix and knead the dough gently until it comes together into a smooth ball. If the dough feels too dry, add a splash of milk to help bring it together.Form the Dough
  • Rest the Dough: Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rest for about 10 minutes. This allows the gluten to relax, making it easier to shape the doughnut balls.Rest the Dough
  • Shape the Doughnut Balls: Place the dough on a clean surface and cut it into even-sized strips about 1 inch wide. Roll each strip between your hands to form ropes, then cut these ropes into small pieces about 1 inch long. Roll each piece between your palms to shape them into balls.Shape the Doughnut Balls
  • Heat the Oil: Heat oil in a pot until it is nice and hot. You will know it is ready when the oil bubbles around a small piece of dough when dropped in.Heat the Oil
  • Deep Fry the Doughnut Balls: Carefully place the doughnut balls into the hot oil, ensuring not to overcrowd the pot. Deep fry them for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy all over. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil and transfer them to a plate.Deep frying doughnut holes

  • Keep your oil at the right temperature—around 350°F (175°C). If the oil is too hot, the doughnut holes will burn outside and stay raw inside. If it is too cool, they will absorb too much oil and become greasy. Use a thermometer to check. Learn more about deep frying at home here.
  • Fry in Batches: Do not overcrowd the pot when frying. Frying in small batches ensures the doughnut holes cook evenly and helps maintain the oil temperature.
  • Drain Excess Oil: Once fried, place the doughnut holes on a wire rack over a baking sheet or on paper towels. This helps drain the excess oil, keeping them nice and crispy.
  • Storage Tips: These doughnut holes are best fresh, but you can store them in an airtight container for up to two days. To refresh them, pop them in the oven for a few minutes to get the crispiness back.
  • Serving Suggestions: Enjoy your doughnut holes with a dusting of powdered sugar or dip them in chocolate sauce. They are also perfect with a cup of coffee or tea for a delightful treat.
