Not anymore! The 2 Ingredient Mini Donuts recipe is so easy and simple. It requires no eggs, no yeast, no water, or waiting. A soft fluffy batch of donuts can be prepared in less than and fried in less than 30 minutes.


Pro Tips to Perfect the 2 Ingredient Mini Donuts

#1: When is the oil hot enough? You can fry a piece of the dough in the oil as a tester. If it sizzles and starts to turn golden, then the oil is ready to fry the mini donuts.

#2: If you are concerned about wasting much oil, you can shallow fry the donuts. But you have to make sure to flip them often. Since they are not floating, they get in contact with the direct heat of the pot. You need to flip them so they do not burn.

#3: Many of us used to toss donuts and run away! If you are scared of putting donuts and getting oil sizzles all around, set the mini donuts in a large slotted spoon or large spiral strainer.

Then, immerse the spoon slowly in the oil. You will notice that the mini doughnuts will float away in seconds.

#4: Should I glaze donuts hot or cold? Well, it is definitely better to glaze donuts when hot especially since you want to serve them as soon as possible. When warm, the mini donuts melt in your mouth.

#5: If you are left with dough that you do not want to shape into donuts, cut and roll them into small balls. Fry and dip them in the cinnamon and vanilla glaze or in the melted chocolate.

Do the same with the dough you get from the middle of each donut. Kids love bite-sized donuts!

#6: If you do not have a mini doughnut cutter, use a small glass. Press it on the dough, then slightly turn it to the right and left to make sure that the dough is cut. You can punch a hole inside using your finger.


How to Glaze 2 Ingredient Mini Donuts

Here is the fun part! Kids love to help at this stage. Hold the donut top side down over the bowl of the glazing you choose.

Dunk each until it is halfway submerged. Set the unglazed side down on the rack until the glaze becomes hard.

Since these are mini donuts, you can dip them in the glazing bowl and enjoy the beautiful look and the extra sweet taste.

Top the 2 ingredient mini donuts with white, black, or colored sprinkles. They will look amazingly irresistible!
