Brazilian Cinnamon Donut Holes Recipe


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3 tbsp. of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp. of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 tbsp. of cinnamon
  • Oil, either vegetable or canola, (used for frying)


  1. Heat a few inches of oil in a skillet or a frying pan at 360 degrees.
  2. Seperate ingredients in two bowls. In the first (maybe smaller) bowl stir the cinnamon and the sugar.
  3. In the second (larger) bowl, stir in the eggs and 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Once mixed thoroughly, pour in the rest of the buttermilk and continue to stir until thick.
  4. Add the baking powder
  5. Use a tablespoon or a small cookie scoop and drop into the frier. Be careful! The oil will be hot, so keep the kids away from the frier.
  6. Cook the donuts until golden-brown on all sides. Remove them with a slotted spoon and leave to cool off on paper towels. While still warm, roll the donuts in the cinnamon sugar bowl.
  7. Best served warm with a caramel dipping sauce!
