Mini Doughnuts Recipe

Delicious and fluffy mini doughnuts that are perfect for any occasion. These bite-sized treats are easy to make and can be customized with your favorite toppings.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Prepare the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt.
  2. Mix the Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter.
  4. Heat the Oil:
    • In a deep fryer or a large, deep pot, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
  5. Fry the Doughnuts:
    • Using a small cookie scoop or a teaspoon, carefully drop small spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pot.
    • Fry each doughnut for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Drain and Cool:
    • Use a slotted spoon to remove the doughnuts from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  7. Serve:
    • Let the doughnuts cool slightly before serving. You can roll them in powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, or drizzle them with your favorite glaze.

Enjoy your homemade mini doughnuts!
