Cinnamon rolls are so good! How about one bite, cinnamon roll donut holes? They have all the same components as a normal cinnamon roll, just bite sized. The dough can be mixed in a bread machine, on the dough cycle. They get baked in the donut hole maker and dipped in a yummy glaze.

Serves: about 2 dozen donut holes
Ingredients
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ⅛ cup sugar (2 Tablespoons)
  • 1¼ teaspoons yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon softened butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1½ cups pastry flour
Filling:
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
Glaze:
  • 1 Tablespoon softened butter
  • 2 Tablespoon milk
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Pour warm milk and sugar in bread machine pan and stir together. Add the yeast and allow to the yeast to proof for 5 minutes. Add the remaining dough ingredients to the bread machine pan. Turn the machine on to the dough cycle. Allow the cycle to complete.
  2. Once the dough cycle is finished, remove the dough on to a floured surface. Roll out the dough into a 7×11 inch rectangle. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon together for the filling. Spread 1 Tablespoon of melted butter over the dough. Evenly sprinkle and spread brown sugar mixture of the melted butter. Tightly roll up the rectangle, starting from one of the long ends. Keep the dough rolled as tight as you can. Slice ½ inch thick pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Allow the dough balls to rest for 15 minutes. Make the glaze: combine and whisk the softened butter, milk and powdered sugar in medium bowl, set aside.
  3. Preheat the donut hole maker, and place the dough balls in the machine. Bake for for 3 – 5 minutes. Remove from machine and let them cool on wire rack. Continue until all cinnamon roll donut holes are finished. Once cooled, dip in glaze and allow excess to drip back. Place on wired rack to let glaze dry.

  1. I was wondering on this recipe a couple of things
    First you have listed in the ingredients 1/2 cup water then in the instructions you say pour warm milk into bread machine. Which one is it and the Second is pastry flour the same as bread flour?

    Thank you
