Sour Milk Donuts


What to do with sour milk…..hunt through your stack of recipes because you know you have one somewhere!  These were so easy  to do if making donut holes or what we call Jim Bits in our house, these are a nicer size for serving than donuts and so simple to do.

Use your Stainless bowl with the scraper and roller
Made 6 dozen Jim Bits
Require Deep fryer or oil in pan for frying.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sour milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp melted butter
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Oil for deep frying.

Place the eggs in the mixer and beat till fluffy, add the sugar and them the sour mil and melted butter.  Whip this till smooth. In a separate bowl blend together the flour and other dry ingredients slowly add them to the liquid batter.  Mix till just wet.  At this point you will have a much easier dough to handle if you chill it for an hr or 2.   When almost ready heat the oil to 375 degrees.   Take the dough and either roll and cut into doughnuts or as I did here cut off tsp fulls of dough and shape into balls.   Deep fry till golden, with these you can’t really turn so I would just stir them after a minute and again one more time if not done.   To serve roll in granulated sugar or as I did here, just sprinkle with icing sugar.  I did freeze quite a few of them to enjoy later, they were real nice after freezing as well.
