    Is the teaspoon of sugar or the 1/4 cup what is mixed into the mixture?

    Quick, easy, and fun to eat :) I definitely recommend this recipe, but I think it needs just a bit more Bisquick to stiffen it up a bit. Use a HEAPING cup and you're good to go!

    This little guys were great! I actually made two batches...the first one i messed up cause it was really runny so i threw it out and started over. The second batch was much better. We had them with the cinnamon and with powdered sugar, both of which were fantastic. Thanks so much for such a yummy recipe. *Made for PAC Spring 2009*

    These were great! A quick and easy breakfast that the kids (and grown-ups) loved. Just threw them in the deep fryer and voila! Perfect yummy little donut holes in no time. Thanks for posting!

    This was a really easy recipe! I really liked the short list of ingredients. I dipped some of them in cinnamon-sugar, the others in powdered sugar. The only think I wasn't sure about --how much oil to use for frying.
