ABOVE: Always let your egg come to room temperature for baking or frying (30 minutes), unless otherwise instructed. In this recipe, the butter was eventually melted. I left plastic wrap on these two ramekins because I had to leave the house for a short amount of time.
It’s nice to know doughnut holes are not that challenging to make. I learned a lot making these. The biggest learning curve was don’t let them cook too long. Once they are brown, take them out. If you leave them in further, they get a little bit of a burnt taste.
