Easy, delicious, and very filling. I too used 1 large egg in place of the egg substitute. It makes a very thick batter, and scooping 1/2 tbsp size balls into the oil worked best for me, yielding about a dozen donut holes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine well the oil, egg substitute and milk.
  2. In a separate bowl combine well the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
  3. Then add the egg mixture to the dry mixture and combine well; Drop by spoonful into hot (375°F.) oil in deep pan on stovetop or in deep fryer.
  4. Fry until golden brown (you may have to turn them over as they cook to get all parts browned).
  5. Remove from oil, draining carefully but while still damp from frying, roll hot doughnut holes in the granulated sugar or confectioner's sugar OR you may simply leave them plain.
  6. A terrific companion to your favorite coffee, tea or hot chocolate!
